Ranked #29 of 46 Hotels in Manuel Antonio
Reviewed 10 March 2013

My husband and I stayed here for three nights on our visit to the Manuel Antonio area. The staff were all very friendly, helped us arrange tours during our visit and provided us tips for exploring the area. We were able to catch the bus from/to Quepos and Manuel Antonio very easily from a stop just across the street or next door (depending on our direction of travel). The open air restaurant was peaceful (not too many other guests around while we were there) and overlooks the pool area. The food was served quickly and was appealingly presented. Our room was large and clean and included a safe, flat screen TV and air conditioning. We were, however, disappointed with the smell of the room (it was quite musty), though we are not sure this wasn't the case in other hotels in the area due to the humid conditions in the area. Turning on the air conditioning definitely helped get rid of the smell. We were also disappointed in the shower that fluctuated from scalding hot to straight cold on a regular basis, dropping pressure when the hot water disappeared. We reported the issue to the hostess, but apparently it's not an issue that could be fixed.

this was the third hotel in our 10 Adventure Tour reserved through Costa Rican Trails. Clean rooms with big comfortable beds and air-conditioning. The huge lanai opened onto the street with views of toucans in the trees. Nice pool with bar area. Take a cab down the hill to Quepos to take in the sights....and smells....of an old friendly Costa Rican town. From Manuel Antonio we took the Savegre Whitewater Rafting Tour provided by Rancho Los Tucanes and the Planet Dolphin Catamaran Afternoon Sailing and Snorkeling Tour. Both were excellent.

Room Tip: Since you can't flush toilet paper,I suggest you bring disposable wash cloths and plan your poop...

We have been here for the restaurant 2 times. We have not stayed at the hotel but next time we will.
The restaurant has one of the best service in the area. The food is very good. Have a little patience when it comes to the bill. But comparing with other places in the area, it's worth it.

We stayed at the Mimo's Hotel in Manuel Antonio and had the best experience. The rooms are very spacious, clean and inexpensive. It is a great, tranquil place, perfect for families. We also stayed in the junior suite and had 4 beds and a wonderful terrace to chill out and have coffee in the morning or hang out in the afternoon. The staff at both the hotel and restaurant is very friendly and go the extra mile to help you. My cousin and I had a great time and met great individuals and the best part of our trip was when we were leaving that morning we got to see the capuchin the little monkeys and that was the highlight of my trip! Great place to visit.

I wished each day would never end!
There was more butterfly and monkey action than I saw at Manuel Antonio Park.
I´m doing the 'dental tourism' 8 day beach tour.
My standard room was like staying in a tree house with the monkeys swinging around the balcony.
This was the first hotel that smelled nice; no dank, musty oder permiating the room. The bathroom was clean, clean, clean. It has all the ammenities plus a fridge.
Price, pool, service and breakfast was great.
Rebeca handles the front desk with grace and adds a lot of class to this top notch hotel.

Room Tip: I highly recommend standard room 17

We stayed 3 nights and booked through Anywhere Costa Rica. It was our favorite because of all of the amenities. The rooms are updated and have nice showers and beds. We stayed in the junior suite and were surprised we had FOUR beds! The A/C is a MUST in Quepos - it is SO hot and humid in the summer! We also had a balcony on our room which was cool. The location was nice, about 20 min walk/5 min drive from downtown Quepos and a 20 min bus ride from Playa Manuel Antonio which was perfect for us. Also a super close walk to the club Bambu Jam which seems to be popular but we didn't get to visit. There is a restauraunt atop the hotel which is convenient for midday drinks at the pool! The pool - actually POOLS are super nice and there were plenty of chairs to lounge in. The staff was very nice and helpful. Also have several free wifi networks so you can keep in touch! We also had a TV which was nice.

Room Tip: Ask for a room with a balcony it has a fridge, table, and fouton! Great to relax at night and have a...
