We enjoyed our stay at Hotel California. It is super important to get a room with an ocean view. Majority do not. Our neatest surprise during our stay was getting to have breakfast with the white-faced monkeys. It only happened one of the 3 mornings here. We watched them swing tree to tree looking for and eating mangoes right next to our breakfast table! The food was pretty good, and happy hour specials were nice. The beds were awful and you can forget about water pressure to shower, but we tried to overlook these set backs to enjoy our vacation. Something you might not know when booking a room here is that a cab ride to the main beach by the Manuel Antonio Entrance is $10 but you can take a 5 minute walk down the road to the local bus stop and catch a ride (every 15 minutes) for less than $2 a couple. This worked well during the day but was not advised at night as the walk from the bus stop to the hotel is not well lit or traveled. Also, there are no restaurants nearby to walk to. Must take a cab or the bus.
