My purpose for staying in Quepos was to see Manuel Antonio Park and this hotel is only a two-minute walk from the park. The staff behind the desk are very nice and very helpful. I traveled solo and I was told the room I was in, which had a king-sized bed and a single bed was no

I stayed at Espadilla with a group of 24 and the staff were so wonderful and accommodating! This is a great hotel that is extremely close (5 minute walk) to the beach and national park. The pool, bar, and restaurant are all very nice and the staff make sure you are enjoying

Ideally located hotel around 200 meters from the beach and 100m from the national parc Manuel Antonio, nice helpful personnel, clean rooms and really tasty fresh food in the à la carte menu for dinner. If not in the hotel definitely worth coming here for a dinner!

Nice and courteous staff who really tried hard. Food was good though great food is found just down the hill by the beach so that’s where we ate all our meals except breakfast. Breakfast was included here which was nice and the food the good. Location is good - close to beach but

Our tour company booked this hotel for us and it certainly has some advantages. It is just a few minutes walk to the public beach one way or Manuel Antonio National Park the other way. That is great & convenient. The public spaces are very nice, especially the outdoor dining

Yes, I think so, its a longer walk though...maybe a couple of miles if you go by the road/streets. It might be shorter if you are able to cut through from the public beach but I don't know if that is possible. The public beach is only 5 minutes from this hotel and the Manuel Antonio beaches are also quite close (20 min walk maybe if you go straight to the beach and aren't distracted by all of the wildlife in the park)but you have to enter through the park and pay the $16 entrance fee... But it is worth the fee, they are beautiful and calmer than the public beach because they are more sheltered.

Is there a hot tub?
There is no hot tub or jacuzzi here, but it's too hot and humid here in my opinion to want one. There is a jet in the pool on one side which is nice. The pool is nice and refreshing but the water is fairly warm, just cold enough to provide excellent relief from the heat. There are even bar stools built into the pool that let you have food or beverages on a counter near the bar.

"Choose a second floor room facing the bar area to view the greenery."
"Best to choose a room away from the bar and swimming pool area"
"First floor is cooler."
"We had a corner room that allowed for windows on two sides. Very spacious and bright! "
"I dont think there's a bad room in the house. depends on the view you want."
