Hotel Playa Espadilla, Manuel Antonio – 4.5 out of 5
This beach is a fun place to be – the surf may be dangerous (beware rips) but the sunsets are to die for and there’s a really cool atmosphere at the edge of the national park. Hotel Playa Espadilla is set just far enough back from the lively beach front (we watched squirrel monkeys on our way back in the dusk) with its own forest surrounds which bring the wildlife to your door. Go out quietly at dawn – there was a white-tailed deer on the lawn. Maybe because this is a touristy area the staff lacked a bit of the beautiful Costa Rican charm but they were courteous and the benchmark had been set very high elsewhere. The pool is small for swimming but quite big enough to float under amazing tropical stars or drink exotic cocktails from the cool of the water at the bar.
