First, the location is fantastic - you can walk back and forth from beautiful Manuel Antonio Beach in about five minutes. We requested an upstairs room with vaulted ceiling based on other reviewers' recommendation -- it did seem more spacious. Electricity was off when we arrived and we had a few short "outages." Our room was near the parking lot which I wouldn't recommend because a motorcycle group was there with us and very loud one night. My biggest peeve was that they only issue one key per room - we were staying with kids so this became a nuisance. Staff was nice but not engaging - so could be a plus for some. Room was clean. Iguanas by pool and nice pool to relax at each afternoon. Breakfast begins at 7 which was late for some of the days we had early morning activities scheduled for and we went to Cafe Milagro up the street instead . . I may try something else if we go back but really the location is the biggest plus for this hotel.
