A big thank you to the staff at Hotel San Bada! In a moment I'll tell you why...
The hotel is located at the end of the road through Manuel Antonio, and adjacent to the entrance to the national park. The property is lovely - including a great pool and swim up bar (if you're in to that...) :-)
The rooms (ask for a high floor - it is only 5 stories) are airy, and all have a view toward the ocean which is about 300 yards away. The sunset from our 5th floor room was spectacular. And we had 2 iguanas hanging out on a three by our window for all three days we were there. They only appeared to move a few feet!
The service is where the hotel stands our for us. We left behind an item of little monetary value but great emotional value to us, and we didn't notice our mistake for a full 24 hours. We got in touch with the hotel and they handled this expertly and with poise and caring that we didn't expect. They recovered our item, sent us an email immediately after finding it, and finished off by sending it to us in Canada. Marylin at the front desk took the lead on this: Thank you to Marylin and your great staff!
