“Impressed”
Reviewed 11 June 2013

Impressive. The price was high compared to other hotels nearer to the beach but now I know why. The room was fun, very large and modern. You feel at home. Breakfast was outstanding, the patio is beautiful and it was nice to enjoy the morning. The pool is nice, we really enjoyed our room and special location. Overall the service and staff were great, the best places to eat are just down the road, check out Pizza Pata for sliced by the meter! Great food, overall service and the area is really nice. We live in this country and we felt like we were REALLY on vacation. Nicely done!

Right off the main road heading to manuel antonio, we felt safe parking the car directly outside the check in desk. Rooms were very spacious and clean. Breakfast was made to order and was good. Beautiful patio to enjoy breakfast right in the canopy. Was also thankful for the mini-fridge and microwave with sink and dishes. Made having snacks in the room very easy.

Bed was VERY soft, didn't bother me but my husband woke up with a backache.

The hotel staff was very welcoming and even showed us to our room. The room was spacious with an extra bed, sitting areas, kitchenette and great balcony looking out over breakfast patio area and the rain forest. As silly as this sound, they had the best bathroom out of the 4 places we stayed in Costa Rica. The pool was small, but nice for a quick, peaceful dip. The hotel was next to a bus stop, which was convenient for getting to downtown Manual Antonio. The closer you get to Manuel Antonio, the more expensive it gets and becomes more of romantic getaway hotels, which is not what my husband and I were looking for. There was a restaurant adjacent to the hotel that appeared to have a modern looking ambiance if you are looking for a convenient place for dinner.

The hotel was phenomenal. Great rooms with all amenities...real coffee and makers, nice large suites. Our balcony room overlooked the dining and common areas, where we were treated to a passing troop of squirrel monkeys during our first night's stay!

Also watched a passing group of howler monkeys across the street on the next afternoon. We only ate breakfast there, but it was great. We did eat at Z's restaurant next door, where the atmosphere is fantastic. Sand floors in a jungle setting--couldn't be beat.

Thanks Nelson for the wonderful stay!

Room Tip: Rooms are huge.

The hotel is small and intimate. It's actually a boutique hotel with a beautiful decoration. The rooms are big, super clean and well maintained with a killer air-condition. A good breakfast is served on the porch facing the jungle and every morning different kind of monkeys came to visit us. The hotel staff is amazingly friendly and helpful, especially Havier the hotel manager whose advice about attractions and places to dine were excellent and priceless.
We stayed 3 nights and were so sorry to leave.
We bought beautiful art work that always remind us of Costa Rica and Hotel PLAZA YARA.
