We arrived at the hotel at about 1:30 pm. We are on a Caravan tour and our tour director already had our room assignments. We opted to visit the park right away as it closes at 4:00. We got back to the hotel at 3:45 and our rooms were not ready. Not just ours but most of the group. We...

Hotel San Bada is in the best location to visit Manuel Antonio National Park in Costa Rica. The staff were professional and friendly and provided great service, including local recommendations and directions. It was great being able to wake up, enjoy the hotel's buffet breakfast and walk out the hotel's door to the Park! Additionally, my children enjoyed the pool...

Adequate size room with the necessary space and facilities needed. The grounds were very nice and the ground level pool was inviting and enjoyable to use with space to relax around. The proximity to Manuel Antonio National Park was a plus.

Great location, within 20 steps to the Park. Food great, mostly buffet style with different types of food. Adult only pool and bar which overlooks the jungle and beach. Walking distance to town and public beach. Large clean rooms. Would definitely recommend the hotel and related Park

Everything about our experience at Hotel San Bada was excellent. Despite not having a reservation the staff found our family a wonderful room and gave us a tour of the property.

We stayed at the Hotel San Bada for two nights with a Road Scholar group tour. The hotel is conveniently located right next to the entrance to the Manuel Antonio National Park where we saw monkeys, sloths, raccoons, and a coatimundi (who smelled a bit like skunk...)

This hotel is right beside the entrance to Manuel Antonio National Park, a small but very popular and beautiful park on the Pacific coast of Costa Rica. It is in a great setting, with jungle on several sides and the ocean nearby. If visiting the Park, enter it early (before 10am) to beat the crowds (long lines after 10am) and...

This hotel sits at the entrance to Manuel Antonio National Park. One side features a view of the jungle and the other side a spectacular view of the Pacific Ocean. The hotel itself seems pretty old and could use some refurbishing, but the rooms are reasonable comfortable. Can't comment on price/value, since the stay was included in out Caravan.com tour...
