The hotel is located about half way between the entrance to the national park and a great beach with all the amenities. A very easy walk to either one. Beautiful, clean pool right outside your room with warm water (about 90 degrees) that felt wonderful after a day at the beach or the park. The cabin we had was a standard (no kitchenette) but it did have a coffee maker and a fridge with a small freezer for ice (nice for making in room drinks). Our cabin was less than $120/night including taxes! We had a porch with 2 chairs and a love seat that fronted the drive next to the pool. Breakfast was included in the room rate and was served at the adjoining hotel's restaurant which was located in a jungle setting next to the hotel's beautiful pool with a swim up bar. The breakfast was cereal, fresh watermelon, papaya, pineapple, bananas, other fresh fruits, various bread to toast, pancakes, sausage, tortillas, made to order omeletes , fried eggs, scrambled eggs, hot coffee, hot milk(for café con leche), fresh orange juice, hot teas and a lot of other things I didn't try. I've paid $18 for a breakfast buffet in the states that couldn't hold a candle to this! The entire staff was clean, professional, friendly and helpful. Especially Leo Martinez at the front desk. Wish I could be there now!

Location close to park and safe and convenient parking were real pluses. Nice pool & good breakfast. Rooms a bit tired, dark and small. Kitchenette was very handy. No light over bathroom sink and no hot water in sink--apparently a CR custom. Fair hot water in shower.

Great hotel for vacation on the Pacific ocean. The location is 5 minutes from the beach. Manuel Antonio national park is 5 minutes walk also.
Several cabinas located around the swimming pool. The rooms have ketchenette equipped with coffee-maker, fridge, stove, sink and all the necessary crockery. Do not leave the fook on the counter, as thre are some ants there.
Beds are comfortable with a lot of pillows. A/C work fine. TV has a lot of English-speaking channels to choose from.
Breakfast is served in the main hotel not far from the hotel. Good variety of food and drinks.
Very friendly and helpful staff. Early check-in possible.
Cleaning is amazing. They bring you flowers in the room and make different figure out of flowers. Really nice.
I'd recommend this hotel to my friends.

This is a nice place but the internet does not work while in your room. Which was not told to us prior to use getting the room.

Also, they like to keep records of your credit card even if you are paying cash. We got a discounted rate (yay!) and they wanted to keep my friends credit card information though we had to pay via cash. After some words, we scratched the credit card information off the receipt and took a picture for our reference. We could have been over thinking things but we are from NYC so..we expect everything!

when we first arrived we were greeted by monkeys and then a giant crocodile on beach path, how exciting!!! this place was great. we sat outside on patio nightly watched fireflies at night and woke to howler monkeys in the morning. morpho butteflies, birds, squirrel monkeys, capuchians, it was wild! Nice beach ( a little rocky) good restuarants, nearby grocery stores, everything you need, a nice pool to cool off in the afternoon and manuel Antonio park a block away!

Room Tip: ask to be away from road
