Great stay for 4 nights
Closed to beach and national park. Staffs are so kind and nice. Breakfast was also great. We saw more monkeys in the swimming pool than national park.

We should have stayed here the whole time in MA!
This was so much better than our stay at Hotel San Bada. Their facilities are clean, well taken care of, and the service was excellent. We were connected with awesome tours through the front desk, and everything was made really easy. Hotel San Bada felt like a flashy but dingy Las Vegas-style hotel where the details weren't well thought out, and they hadn't maintained the rooms very well (for example the towel monkey display was cute, but outlets not located near the nightstands was not; among a couple other things). Included breakfast at Hotel Vela Bar was also one of the nicer ones we had during our 2-week stay in Costa Rica. The hotel was small but very nicely done. Exactly what we needed as a clean, cozy crash pad after exploring Manuel Antonio for a few days. Book here instead of Hotel San Bada for Manuel Antonio. And say hello the to the little hostel/restaurant next door, it was really nice to just walk ~20ft to delicious little bar with fair prices on food and a really fun 80s music videos playing behind the bar. They were also super friendly and checked in several times to make sure we were completely happy.

Perfect location
The location is perfect next to main entrance of Manuel Antonio park and Espadilla beach(a large beach with any activity you could want, or just rent chairs and an unbrella) a couple minutes walk away. There were also plenty bars and restaurants within less than a 5 minute walk. The staff were always helpful and friendly. The breakfast was delicious. The pool was small, warm and quiet. Loved there were no kids too... got to really relax!

Worth It
Great hotel for what we wanted around Manuel Antonio National Park. Walking distance to the park, and beach. Nice pool, great breakfast. Someone was always at the front desk for questions or anything. Great place.
