This was our second stop on our Groupon deal. Our first hotel seemed better maintained and newer so I felt some letdown when we first got into our room. I got over it pretty quickly when I just let myself enjoy being in the middle of the rain forest. Our room was very spacious with a small kitchen. We had an outside sitting area for our morning coffee and got to watch birds, iguana and other critters get active in the morning. The day we got here we were greeted by white faced monkeys in the tree next to our room. We could hear the howler monkeys in the distance. How cool is that?? There are three nice pools but no hottub. Our room was located very near one and I felt like we had our own private villa. There is a walking trail at the back of the property that goes into the forest more. There isn't wifi in the room but I could always check my FB and email at breakfast and dinner. Yes, there are definitely some improvements that could be made to upgrade these rooms but it is unique and quaint and I like this kind of place over big boring resort hotels. The staff were very helpful. Breakfast was good although not large. We didn't eat in the restaurant there for dinner so I can't review. We went on a Catamaran tour one day and we were picked up at the hotel. We drove the short drive to Manuel Antonio Park. You can't drive into the park but can get closer than the beach area where they desperately try to get you to park.
