I love staying here, yes, I am writing this review as I lay in my comfy big bed in " The La Posada Room". I hear birds singing and chirping and I know the cute monkeys will be swinging by soon through the jungle outside my window....
La Posada is located right next to the entrance of Manuel Antonio National Park but it is tucked away so all you hear are sounds of nature. It is in a perfect spot. A nice 5 minute stroll to the beautiful and breathtaking Manuel Antonio Beach, La Posada is off the beaten path.
Mike the owner, is fantastic, committed to his purpose here of offering a wonderful travel experience and a doll! But Jonathan, he is the absolute best! Talk about hospitality, graciousness and most of all "local" knowledge, he has made my stay here super fun and his humor is infectious! You can book all of your fun tours and such here but they will always steer you towards the best for your buck! Manuel Antonio is kind of expensive, but the rooms here are not (they are adorable, handpainted pics of jungle/ beach scenes on walls, local colored masks and wonderful colors make the interior inviting and comfortable). Mike and Jonathan also host fun nights in town where all of the guests get to talk, eat, listen to live music and just have a blast!
Oh so where was I? Oh yeah, clean rooms, Free Wi-Fi, and a delicious, delicious huge complimentary breakfast made family style every morning. Their Banana bread is life changing! Thanks for a most memorable trip Mike and Jonathan, really, I am having a wonderful time. I don't want to EVER leave!!! Only one more day. Maybe I'll tackle a little surf sesh.....

We just got got from an amazing honeymoon in Costa Rica! We stayed at La Posada in Manuel Antonio for four nights of our honeymoon and we wished we would have stayed there the whole week! The staff there is soo accommodating. Esteban, one of the managers was so helpful the first day we got there we rented a car and had been driving for 5 hours the last thing we wanted to do is deal with dropping off our rent a car and Esteban helped us out and said they will come and pick it up for you I will call and he took care of it! That was only the beginning of an amazing four days of home cooked fresh breakfasts, clean rooms, home cooked dinners some nights and even a night out to the local town of Quepos for dinner and a live band with the owner of the hotel as well as a few hotel patrons. The jungle bungalows were a home away from home with full coffee makers, fridge and freezer, microwave, large titled clean shower, real hand soap and shampoo, nice flat screen tv, ceiling fans, and even a covered porch surrounded by trees and rocking chairs! The rooms were cleaned everyday and the sheets were changed! The sheets were nice 900 thread count the owner told us he only buys the best! It is a very small hotel so we felt very much at home when we were here getting to know all of the other people staying here as well as the owner and staff. Also it is a 5 minute walk to the beach and the hotel is literally right outside the Manuel Antonio National Park!!! We will 100% be back and staying here!! It is great for anyone couples, families, kids, solo! I would highly recommenced this place to anyone heading to Manuel Antonio area of Costa Rica!

Room Tip: We stayed in the Fisherman's Bungalow and loved it! Blue walls, pretty pictures! All the bungalows are great!

You know when you go on vacation and you miss some of the comforts you have at home? Not here....it was nice to have a reclining loveseat, flat screen tv, the latest and greatest movies (for raining nights), a frig, pool, ac, comfortable bed, cold beer/soda/water at at anytime (on honor system), towels/beach toys, tons of books, close to the beach, quiet, close to everything, spotless room, animals popping, excellent breakfast and a friendly face always available. While we were in La Fortuna we went to an expat night with several hotel, restaurant and tour owners/operators,they asked us about our trip, where else we were going and we mentioned La Posada. Everyone knew it and said it was the best place to stay but hard to get a room because it's always in demand. Most of the other guest have stayed multiple times and when saw people booking rooms for their next trip while there...it's that good!

Check in & out is a breeze...the only hard part is leaving;) Prices are very reasonable and make sure you book thru them since they know the best tour operators and prices (no bs). Everyone who works here is fantastic and top notch in the hotel field. It was much better than we expected it to be. Jonathan helped us out countless times and even drove us around when he didn't have to work. Mike invites the hotel guests and staff out a local bar and a couple of nightlife spots which you certainly don't want to miss.

While on our two week vacation, we toured most of the country and found Manuel Antonio to be our favorite by far. The beaches, people, flora/fauna, food, variety of activities are simply the best. It reminded us of San Diego and next time we go back we'll just stay in the area the whole time. Going into Uvita for an ultralight flight down to drake bay then taking the ATV tour was our favorite day by far.

We can't wait to go back and if you can get a room here; you won't be disappointed!!

Literally next to the gate of Manual Antoinio National Park and a 5 minute walk to the beach, La Posada is a treat! The rooms were clean and set up with mini-fridges, microwaves and coffee makers as well as a porch with a hammock. The check-in/breakfast area is an open air patio with tables and a tv and computer for guest use. The staff is fantastic, taking time to hang out with guests, share tips for the best tours around and even dine with you - some nights of the week they cook dinner in the hotel for only $7! On Wednesdays, everyone is invited to check out a local expat bar with a rock band and a nightclub in Quepos.

I had a fantastic time, and I plan to send everyone to Costa Rica and La Posada! Also, make sure you visit the park and go rafting and ziplining.

Room Tip: The bungalows and La Casa were both great.

Our family of four, including our 2 year old daughter and 6 month old son, spent six nights in the Casa, a 2-bedroom second floor suite. The suite was huge, more space than we needed. Loved the covered veranda as well. Typo uncanny get any closer to M.A. National Park! Us and another family with a toddler booked a guide through the park together and saw so many animals - sloths, howler monkeys, crocodiles, agoutis and more. This was all arranged for us by Estaban. The staff, Esyaban, Johnathon, Francine, Carol, are all super friendly and made our kids feel very welcomed. mike and Johnathon were prompt with email communication booking our stay. We know that Johnathon handles emails in the evening from the common computer, so it seems like he's busy, because he is - replying to lots of emails! They even booked our airport transfers and arranged for child car seats for our kids, in advance. We didn't have a car and walked down the road to many restaurants in town. It's walkable to the other main are if M.A., just uphill. Somehow, we managed it with two kids in tow. We ate out at El Sol, Dragonfly
Thai and Cafe Milagro; did dinner and a movie in at La Posada on a rainy night; a few lunches across the way at Parque Sushi and ordered delivery from El Sol and Ngo on evenings when the kids were a bit squirrelly for a restaurant. Not a problem without a car!
Pool was great. Nicely shaded by the jungle trees for the kids. Boogie boards and pool toys are all there for you to use. Saw the white faced monkeys in and around the pool! A few also visited us by our screened in veranda in the Casa too! Carol pointed out to us a toucan in the trees by the pool one day too!
All in all, a wonderful stay and a great Costa Rican experience. A perfect mix of jungle and beach!

Gracias mis amigos en La Posada!

Room Tip: The Casa is on the second floor. Super spacious. Bedroom windows do go onto the road, so you will hear some noise, but since it is at the end of the road, it is fairly minimal.
