Great hotel
We stayed here for two nights in Jan 2020. We were very impressed by so many animals we saw.... a lot of monkeys, two big lizards, one howler monkey, hummingbird, and other birds. The double room was a little small, but the view was awesome. The manager was very nice and very friendly. We were very happy with our stay.

Gorgeous views but very basic
Views are incredible. Location is good but a further walk to the beach than expected. The room is very basic. No soap or shampoo. The extra bed was just cushoins on the ground covered by a sheet.

Poor 2,0
This was the worse customer service I have ever experienced. We booked the hotel in advanced and unfortunately we had to leave Costa Rice earlier than expected due to a family crisis. We couldn't call the hotel to cancel as we had no phone there, and needed to immediately go to the airport. The hotel charged me $90 even though we didn't stay with them, and when I returned to the U.S. and called them to ask for a refund they were incredibly rude! They didn't want to refund me the money and they didn't care what I had to say. Very rude and unprofessional. If you care about how the hotel treats you or behaves if you need something, please do not go there. I had great experience in every other hotel in Costa Rica. Everyone was amazing except for the people from this hotel.

Dirty, rats, and bugs
If you want to stay at a hotel with rats in the room, big gaps in the doors letting bugs and rodents in, restroom with windows in the shower and no curtains, and rooms whose sheets are not washed, then look no further.

Simply fantastic, beautiful view from our garden to the ocean, monkeys, hummingbirds, toucans, agouties everywhere, near to restaurants & supermarkets, near to the National Park entrance. This place is itself the island of peace. THANKS for your hospitality!!

Monkeys yes..... luxury no...
If you read through the reviews previously posted there are no surprises when you arrive. Monkeys are everywhere and definitely the best part of staying at this hotel. The rooms are adequate and comfortable. We didn’t have hot water the first night, found Manuel the property manager the next day and he turned it on. (Not sure why it was turned off to begin with, made for a very uncomfortable first shower there). There is a magnificent view of the water, although some wires and roofs in the way but nothing we can do about that. The beach access is open till 5 pm everyday with entry through the hotel below. The 100meter hike is a strenuous steep hike to the beach but worth it with a near private beach below. If looking for luxury, not your place. If looking for daily monkey visits, definitely your place.

Amazing view
Beautiful view. Only 1 functioning plug and the tv didn’t work either. Asked to have it fixed but they didn’t seem To care.

Incredible sunsets and close to the beach
The staff at Villa de la Selva were so friendly and welcoming. Our room had two hammocks on the deck which were so comfortable and relaxing at the end of every day in Manuel Antonio. Breakfast was delicious and although the walk was STEEP on the way back the property is walking distance to the beach. We saw a number of ants in our room as mentioned in other reviews but they didn’t bother us. We brought a few ant traps with us because of the other reviews but wound up not needing them. The view for sunset was incredible. There were several sloths, monkeys and lizards in the garden and trees which were so fun to see every morning. The location was a short 10 minute drive from Manuel Antonio National park and 2-5 minutes drive or a 10 minute walk from great restaurants.

Good view, sweet housekeeper, ask questions
Pros: cute, quiet place, balcony with fan, hammock, view of ocean, equipped kitchenette, great pool, friendly staff (when they are around) Cons: no hot water, no wifi password in room, and office apparently only open for check-ins. I was (accidentally?) locked into my room with a padlocked, screened security gate (outside the regular wooden door that bolts shut) and had to make my way off the balcony and around the muddy landscaping in the dark to open it from the outside. There wasn't anyone around the next day to find out what happened. Advice: communicate when you check in about wifi and on checkout procedure since the office was closed. And about the room's front security gate! FYI, the same key opened both unmarked padlocks (on the front and balcony iron gates), PLUS the padlock on the vacant room next door. However, I imagine there hasn't been thefts or we would have read it here.
