Damp linens and musty smell.
First room had a very musty smell and the linens were damp. Called the front desk and they were happy to give another room but that room had a smell as well. The sheets were also damp in the second room as well. The hotel is due for a complete renovation, it was an amazing hotel 10 years ago.

Loved Hotel San Bada!
Stayed for days in November. Went next door to Manuel Antonio Park for two days. Saw different animals each day. Saw a howler monkey, an iguana (at the poo), and a howler monkey from our balcony. Woke up to howlers every other morning. The hotel is self contained and provided An included breakfast. The restaurants were also really nice about looking ou for our gluten free food requirements. Would definitely go bank again. Thanks Hotel San Bada!

Adventure in Costa Ricca
Very nice location and on the beach. Carla in reception is a very nice girl and upgraded our room to one the best view rooms. The hotel is really clean and large space. The breakfast need some improvement.

Best choice I could have made
My stay was great. The beach was a short walk away and Manuel antonio is right outside the parking lot. There's plenty of shops right outside of the parking lot too. All this while keeping a quiet and chill vibe in the actual hotel. They made our family feel like VIPs everyone knew my name and room after my first day. Food was some of the best hotel food Ive had. the complimentary breakfast buffet definitely had variety and the Japanese restaurant on the 6th floor had great fresh sushi and even better views of Manuel antonio. The only thing I would have liked is if they had family suites. Unfortunately all the suites are single bed so I had to take standard room with 2 beds but it worked out just fine. I will definitely stay again next time we go to Costa rica.

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.
