We arrived in Manuel Antonio for the last week of our trip to Costa Rica. The hotel was great. They set us up in a room with 3 beds. We actually were the only ones in the hotel at the time of our stay, so the service was excellent. Made friends with the staff, who were very friendly. Free wi-fi internet so you can make calls using a Skype account on an IPhone. Lots of animals and beautiful natural landscaping around the grounds. Food was pretty good, but you can just go walk down the street to get other choices. I recommend this little road side/beach stand. When you get to the main road, make a right and follow the path where all the vendors are up the road toward the beach/park. There you will find a make shift pavaillion with trash bags for the roof. They make casados(plate of theday) with amazing bbq food and sides.....so cheap....ate there everyday!!!
Overall, if you are looking for a great place to stay, stay here. It was very cheap, and close to everything, as opposed to the luxury hotels on the hill where you need to take a cab or bus to get to the beach. Great for sleeping and hanging out. You are in COSTA RICA.....you shouldnt be in your room anyway!!
You also can become really friendly with the locals, because many people leave later to go back up the hill, and you are still in the town chilling with everyone. Made many friends!!!
