Loved the location right next door to Manuel Antonio National Park with a shortcut to beach. A leisurely 10 minute walk along the street to purchase from vendors, get to restaurants, beach and activities.

Comfortable and Clean but no Hot Water
Beds were comfortable, hotel is well maintained for an older property. However water in shower was cold for 3 days in a row, never had a hot shower which was awful.

It was right by National Park. A little bit noisy at times especially the music from the swim up bar four parties in the upstairs dining room. Some problems with septic system odors near he building well as on the walk between the hotel and the beach

Nice hotel with good location but can be better
I liked my stay at San Bada. Great location by the beach. Junior staff is friendly and helpful. Rooms are spacious. Having said that the Manager on duty and mid managers sitting at the reception are focused more on billing you rather than helping customers and running the place efficiently. The hotel clearly understaffed. Some of the cleaning happened really late in the day. I was leaving at 4am and senior manager offered no help despite me asking. I was saved by the guard who kindly called the driver in the night and they safely brought me to my stop. I perhaps won’t stay again. Management of the place should be addressed and improved.

2/10 Poor

What a joke!
Rude not friendly service, the problem with air conditioning, door locker, not working safe. They promise to drive me to the beach by buggy because I can't walk... In the next few days, whet can't find the driver... breakfast terrible for this price... I’m strongly do not recommend this joke hotel. Terrible experience.

4/10 Fair

Great location rest is disappointing
Great location with short path to the beach and next door to park. Spacious rooms. Rest is disappointing. You have to chaise for cleaning and if lucky your room would perhaps be cleaned by 4-5pm or won’t be at all unless you ask specifically. Room service plates don’t get collected by staff and in the morning floor is a mess due to animals picking it up. In sushi restaurant we waited for the order for 1 hour before it arrived. On top of this I was recommended the hotel and naively checked in directly. I ended up been overcharged for three nights with $260 daily days vs the $160 on hotels.com. I realised that only later and started to book online. I challenged them but they could not care less as they don’t state rates on their site so charge whichever they want. Shame on the management really. They should know better. It’s ok to pay a bit more but not so much more. So make your conclusions and don’t deal with them directly.
