We spend one night at the fifth floor and it was awesome! It definitely meets the standards for a 5 stars hotel! A lot of space to share with everybody in the room! Very well equipped/furniture! The gym was great! Well equipped as well! Great view from the balcony! Great pool with amazing setup! I have to admit it is really pricy but totally worth it!

Great to hear your stay with us was nothing short of incredible! With your review it's a great opportunity to say that our prices are certainly competitive with other five star hotels/resorts in the area, and what's so important to keep in mind is that at those competitive prices guests at Los Altos are booking just an ordinary hotel room, but a luxuriously decorated three bedroom condo, each with an incredible ocean view balcony. This is the kind of space that makes a vacation with us to comfortable and, of course, unforgettable. We certainly subscribe to the kick back and relax philosophy, and we know that the plush furniture in your ocean view living room will do the trick!

Los Altos is the perfect place to stay in Manuel Antonio. We rented the penthouse suite for 2 families which was perfect. The suite was amazing - huge and exceptionally nice. It's location was perfect - near many of the restaurants. Also, the service at the hotel and the pool was great. I had actually left a piece of luggage at the hotel and the Concierge, Dennis Reyes, went above and beyond to get it back to me in the US. Dennis could not have been more helpful during our stay.

Great location in Manuel Antonio with amazing space you won't find elsewhere. Our condo was so large that our children thought we were sharing it with another family! Great views and even a hot tub on the roof with an amazing sunset view. Great restaurants across the street.

I must give the manager, Efrain, credit for helping us plan the second half of our trip. He highly recommended visiting the volcano area and even called to reserve a room for us at The Springs in La Fortuna.

We went fishing one day and brought our fresh fish to the onsite Los Altos restaurant. The chef created the most amazing meal and didn't charge us very much. We were happy to share the leftovers with everyone there!

Manuel Antonio is a beautiful place with amazing adventures. Highly recommend it.

Room Tip: Los Altos has a great pool with views of the ocean. We didn't make it down to the beach which is...

I can't really say enough complements on this hotel and their amazing staff. The rooms are beautiful, modern and spacious all suite style with their own elevator access. The outdoor areas, pool, hot tub, dining, have beautiful views of the ocean. All of their staff were professional but also very friendly.

I would happily go back and stay again.

This is where my hubby and I honeymooned. We had the ocean vista suite. It was so incredibly spacious and beautiful. The view from the 6th floor was wonderful. We had a full kitchen which wad great because we cooked a few times. There is a store in walking distance with basic needs.

We loved the pool and the hot tub - went there every day.

The Spa is ok. We had a couples massage. Be aware that the rooms are not air conditioned but they have large open windows with a gorgeous view. You will pay about the same price here as the US here. My massage was great. Hubby said his wasn't.

It is a steep hike to the private beach so be prepared. You will see monkeys and lots of Hermit crabs. There is a stream at the bottom that leads to the ocean. The private beach is very small. The beach is kinda rocky so not a good place to swim unless you don't mind that.

The restaurant there is Karola's and is excellent. Again you will be paying about the same here as in the US. Order the guaro sour.

The staff is very nice here. They are incredibly helpful and they book anything you want for you. Hopefully you will get Rafael.

I would highly recommend this place. It is family friendly as well.

We love couples who stay at Los Altos for their honeymoon! Few things are more exciting than to act as hosts for such a tremendous and significant moment in people's lives. We are so happy that you and your husband enjoyed your stay with us. Thrilled that you found your accommodations so luxuriously accommodating, and very happy that you guys found your kitchen to be a great place to make a few meals here and there. Creating the home away from home feel is certainly what we were going for at Los Altos. Thanks for your kind words regarding our staff, and we're proud to say that the Los Altos beach experience is new and improved, especially so thanks to our guests' incredible and thoughtful feedback. Can't wait to see you two on your next trip to Manuel Antonio!

We stayed a week at Los Altos with our two teenage children and couldn't have been happier. The accommodations were spacious and comfortable, so we never felt crowded. We were on the fifth floor on the B side and had a great, if far away, view of the ocean. Like others have mentions, we moved the chairs from the side balcony to the one that faces the ocean so we could all sit out there and enjoy the view. The condo was clean and everything was in working order. The staff was very accommodating, helping us make (and change) reservations for activities and dinners. They knew us by name and were eager to help us with any request we had. It was great to have daily maid service - usually this is not provided in condos we've stayed in on other vacations. We were only disappointed in the restaurant Karola's. The food there was just okay (though if you have an early tour scheduled, I highly recommend eating breakfast there - you will likely get a great show by the monkeys coming down to feed). When we were at the pool, they didn't really come down often enough to check on us to see if we wanted to order food or drink, so we got in the habit of stopping by on our way to the pool to order drinks and food and they'd bring it down to us when it was ready. There was a bar right next to the pool, but it was never staffed while we were there - perhaps because we were there in the rainy season? The staff in the restaurant was extremely friendly and happy to offer recommendations or rush our breakfast order so we could get done in time for our tour. We would definitely stay at Los Altos again and have already recommended it to several of our friends.

Room Tip: Higher floors on the B side have the best ocean view.

Reading this review was an absolute treat. We certainly never tire of knowing that our guests have had their vacation expectations met and exceeded, especially so when it come to guests who travel as a family. When we brought Los Altos to Manuel Antonio, creating the ideal family vacation was at the forefront of our thinking. We wanted families to have the most amount of comfort and access within this extraordinary tropical environment. Seeing monkeys in a nearby tree while eating breakfast is a truly unique experience, to say the least. And that ocean view, even at a distance, is enough to relax an active mind and tired body. Thank you again for taking the time to write a review of your stay with us, as well as offering future guests helpful tips on how best to enjoy the Los Altos and Manuel Antonio experience.
