Fabulous 8,6 From 123 reviews

Very good 8,0
Great location and staff
The staff at this hotel is the best...the location is great. You really don’t have to go to the national park to see monkeys because the moneys are easily seen off the balcony, in the parking lot, and sometimes at you front door. The hotel could use some patio chairs on the balconies so that you can enjoy the monkeys and view in the morning and evening. It can can also need a facelift. The breakfast is good and the watermelon juice is soooo refreshing.

Stay Away
To sum it we left a day earlier although we had paid for two rooms one of which being a suite. We had to get rooms in another hotel. The room even the $500/night suite had substandard furniture and fixtures. Refrigerator was empty, no water in the room, no iron, smelly bathroom of which we complained to no effect. Restaurant was not aircondioned with 90F hot and humid weather, it was impossible to sit there and eat. Food was obnoxious and way below standard. Jacuzzi would not heat up and had cold water. Overall a very poor experience, was relieved to get out of there. This hotel might qualify for a two star hotel at best.

Best Location in Manual Antonio
We stayed in the hotel for 3 nights. They upgraded us to a nicer room for free since it was my husband’s birthday. Overall the stuff is very nice but the hotel is so outdated! Breakfast is not good. Furniture are very old. The location is the best if you want to get in and out of the national park easily!

Definitely recommend!
super convenient location, literally right next to the entrance of Manuel Antonio National Park. the included breakfast was delicious and the staff was courteous. the hotel is lovely, by costa rican standards (which must take thin walls into account- i heard children running in the outside corridor and faint footsteps upstairs). wifi signal is weak during high traffic times (i.e. at night/mid-morning). i didn't get to spend time in the downstairs pool, but the upstairs (adults only) pool is nice and quiet, and a great place to do some poolside reading. if you're driving in, you should be aware that the road leading up the park (and thus the hotel) is small and quite congested, and the hotel's parking lot, while somewhat spacious, is still small compared to the number of users (i.e. try to avoid driving in if possible).
