Although somewhat removed from the main attractions of Manuel Antonio Park, this quiet hotel is a hidden gem. (But if you don't want the hastle of transportation to and from Manuel Antonio, this place may not be for you. However for us, it was a great place to return to and de-stress after a day in the bustling local towns, or hiking through the Park.) The beautifully- maintained grounds are filled with flowers and lush foliage, and the rooms are large and well appointed. Most units have their own terraces. The beachfront outdoor dining terrace offered an excellent and varied menu. There was always well-prepared freshly-caught fish when we were there. The restaurant staff were pleasant and attentive, especially Carla at the bar. Note: the beach, although lovely to look at and walk on, is not a swimming beach due to dangerous riptides, however the beautiful pool more than makes up for this. Monterey del Mar is a great place to relax and appreciate the natural beauty and bird life of Costa Rica's Pacific coast.
