Falls Resort at Manuel Antonio
Ranked #8 of 47 Hotels in Manuel Antonio
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 1 September 2010

I wasn't terribly thrilled with this hotel, but the price was good. It's a long walk down to the beach and there's no shuttle service. Hoof it or pay for a cab are your choices. The grounds are fairly pretty, but about what you see everywhere in Manuel Antonio. I didn't see any notable wildlife on the grounds during my stay. I also twice requested not to have maid service come into the room and was assured both times that they would not - only to come back to my room and find that the housekeeping had indeed gone inside. The things I did like were the mini-fridge and de-humidifier in the room, and there were several stores and restaurants within easy walking distance. So, I would say this hotel is about average, and since it was a pretty good price, I got what I paid for.

Having reviewed several hotels on tripadvisory for Manuel Antonio, Costa rica, we finally decided on The Falls Resort, and we could not have made a better choice. From the minute I booked the room till the day we left and had to wait at the hotel for over three hours for our shuttle, the service was EXCELLENT. The food, wow, what can i say, after eating lunch there on the first day, we decided not to eat anywhere else but there, you have to have their Costa Rican Lunch - the chicken was grilled to perfection. And the bartender made me a drink to die for, after zip lining in the rain forest, i needed a cocktail, and boy was i in for a good one. All in all this was one of the best hotel's I have ever stayed in.

We were very pleasantly surprised by this property. Don't be fooled by the facade. As you drive the road to Manuel Antonio, you'll pass by beautiful-looking hotels/resorts. When you first pull up to The Falls you might feel like you haven't made the best choice. BUT as soon as you enter, you'll feel better about your choice. the staff is incredibly helpful and personable. the pool itself isn't that great - there are definitely better ones in town (specifically the pool at the Makanda - which, btw, the staff at the Falls recommended) - but the scenery in the courtyard are beautiful.

then you get to the rooms. we had a deluxe room which was really amazing. it looked like they were very recently renovated - they were clean and comfortable. great roomy shower, huge walk-in closet, pull out couch, flat-screen tv and the bed was just as comfortable as any name-brand hotel bed.
after spending time in MA, and seeing other properties, i'd definitely return to The Falls given the value for the very reasonable price. you won't find a better deal. sure you could spend twice as much and get a view of the ocean, but it's not necessary! stay at the falls, and spend the day at the beach!

oh, and the FREE BREAKFAST is awesome. the coffee was incredible, and they always had really good gallo pinto and platanos, plenty of fruit, breads and scrambled eggs.

100% recommend this property!

The Falls has nice rooms that are set in the rain forest. We saw small frogs, big frogs, lizards, and even two monkeys right by our room. The staff is friendly and the rates were good. It is halfway between Manuel Antonio and Quepos, which is probably the best area to stay. It is walking distance to many good restaurants and a short cab/bus ride to Manuel Antonio and its beaches.

I stayed in one deluxe room for 3 nights and can only recommend this hotel.
Location- it is one of the closest hotel from the beach. It will still take you 20min if you walk but that's much close than some hotels. You should definitely take the bus for 50c. It runs every 30min and stops almost in front of the hotel.

Staff- they were extremely helpful. They booked tours for us (I recommend rafting and jetskiing). The barman is also really great and they have happy hour from 4 to 6 (Pina coladas and daiquiris for $3).

Accommodations- I travel a lot for work and stay in very expensive hotels. The rooms at the falls are extremely nice by American standards. They are easily 4 stars on US standards.

Grounds- The hotel is in the middle of the jungle and very quiet. They have a small for great swimming pool and a hit tub.

Only minuses are around the lack of restaurant (they gave us discounts at Si Como No; just ask for the coupons) and the lack of flexibility in the checkout procedure (late checkout is very difficult to get). Also they claim breakfast is open till 10 but it is impossible to get any good food after 9 (pancakes and eggs were gone).

Would stay there again for sure.

We stayed in the white apartment at the Falls during our visit to Manuel Antonio and loved it. The hotel and grounds were spotlessly clean and the staff was helpful and friendly. There were monkeys, sloths and all sorts of other wildlife on the property. It has a great location and you can walk to a number of good restaurants. Try Si Como No for lunch or dinner. Great view, good food and they'll let you use their pool after eating. They also have a movie in their theater every evening that is free if you spend $10/person at the restaurant. Get your receipt stamped. Also try La Avion, good food, great view.

We stayed at The Falls Resort at the end of a two week whirl wind tour of CR. It was the perfect end to our trip. Best hotel (also the most expensive however, but well worth it) that we stayed in over the two weeks. The hotel is lovely and well cared for. Rooms are big, bright and very comfortable. The staff were all very nice.
The majority of the hotel does not have ocean view, but the grounds are a jungle garden oasis.

The hotel is at the top of the hill, as most good ones are. The walk back up to the hotel on a hot day is not fun, but knowing the pool awaits you makes it bearable. There is a bus that will take you down and back up the hill for $0.50 one-way. There are also plenty of taxis.
