Hostel Plinio is my number one choice in Manuel Antonio! I recently used Plinio as our lodging for a large group of volunteers and we had a fantastic time. The owners and staff are great: helpful, accomodating and have a very 'Pura Vida' and easy going way of making you feel right at home.
The surroundings are gorgeous, the rooms are spacious, the beds are comfy....no hot water but guys...this is Costa Rica!
The location is great if you want a calm and relaxing stay, the pool and the restaurant below are great for relaxed lounging:)
The only recommendation I would have is to provide guests the chance to buy simple snacks and drinks, toiletries etc...on site.
Highly recommend Hostel Plinio....enjoy Manuel Antonio and live la pura vida!
