“Great place to stay in Manuel Antonio”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 27 November 2012

Natural Pacific Suites was one of the best places! We went with 5 people and got one room, it cost us each about 18/night. While hostels in the area might be cheaper, the suite has a kitchen so we were able to cook and save A TON of money that way. In addition, they include breakfast, the suites have AC and HDTVs. I honestly could´t ask for a better suite. Its about a 20 min bus ride to the beach, which isn´t too bad considering most hotels are on the mountain in between Quepos and Manuel Antonio. I highly recommend this place for small groups of students and families

My friend and I stayed here for a few days and we were happy that we did!

Everyone comments on how 'far' it is from town...it is really NOT all that far. About a 5 to 7-minute walk from the main street. There is also a small grocery store on the corner.

The manager there, Alban, is a treasure! He is so kind and helpful and he will do what he can to accommodate you. He has a background in travel, too, so he is quite passionate about the region and an excellent source of insight. His daughter is a sweetie, too! :)

The rooms are actually full-service apartments...complete with full bedrooms, kitchen, big bathroom with huge tub, and living room and TV (with tons of channels - handy thing on a rainy night!). There are also lounge chairs outside where you can relax. It is extremely clean!!

The free breakfast was served directly in our room, too, and it was typically Costa Rican and, like all the food there, it was good.

The only thing was that the kitchen had a happy little ant family! But, keeping in mind that this is Costa Rica, hardly surprising. This was not due to any problem with the cleanliness, as the hotel was really well-maintained; only a reality of being in a tropical climate.

I recommend this hotel highly, in part due to the wonderful service provided by Alban! :)

Although slightly off the beaten path from the main road from Cuepos to Manuel Antonio, this place was very nice. A couple blocks to the bus to take you to the National Park. The rooms were super nice, the AC worked great, there was lots of hot water and the staff was very friendly.

We stayed four nights and can really recommend this place. It's located in tranquil area in which we didnt feel unsafe. It's less than a 10-minute walk from the bus station which takes you every 30 minutes to the national park or to Quepos in about 15 min. Compared to other accommodations we stayed during our holiday in a similar price range, this place is just unbeatable. Also a big thanks to Alban who runs the place. Before and during our stay the communication was competent and hassle free. He's very friendly and constantly available for Q&A regarding tours, shuttles and so on. The apartment (I guess it was # 3) was large, clean, had two A/Cs and a jacuzzi and comes with a nice view over the area. Breakfast is prepared individually, every morning. A small point of critique might be the size of the breakfast. We had a great stay at Natural Pacific Suites.

The suites provided ample space, clean bathrooms, air conditioning, a full kitchen and delicious breakfasts. Alban, the manager helped answer all our questions and made our stay that much more wonderful. The location off the main streets allows for more privacy, and a much more quiet setting. Would stay here again and again.

Do not be taken aback by its somewhat off-the-beaten track location and weak exterior, the suites hidden away here are wonderful. We had an amazing 3-night visit here and would not have wished have stayed anywhere else in Manuel Antonio. The hotel manager/concierge was friendly and helpful and the rooms were great. We were two couples so the two bedroom two bath suite was perfect. A short cab ride brings you right to the park (or get picked up by a tour arranged by the Natural Pacific Suites' manager).

My wife and I stayed at Natural Pacific Suites for 3 nights. The place is hard to find, and once there, it’s not obvious this place has great suites inside. Natural Pacific is located in a very friendly and safe local community. Much more interesting than staying at a conventional hotel.
The rooms and beds are very comfortable. The kitchen is clean with a fridge. Breakfast is good and served in the room. There is a nice community room in the middle with a pool table. Unusual and beautiful.
The manager, Alban, is very welcoming and helpful about things to see and do in the area.
We highly recommend this place. You need a car to stay at this place.

Room Tip: The two upper rooms have a nice balcony and view.
