First off, your hosts Bernard and Marlene will make you very comfortable and welcome. They are some of the nicest people you will encounter. The accommodation was very spacious (we had the suite next to the mangroves), clean, and comfortable. Monkeys and iguanas made regular visits to the porch and so we had quite a wildlife show. We opted for the boat tour and saw a lot of birds, lizards, crabs, and other wildlife. This was a great experience. If you are going to Manuel Antonio, then this is a fabulous place to stay. Quepos itself is rather uninteresting at best. The Kayak Lodge is a short drive away from all the main sites and Bernard and Marlene will give you good advice regarding local attractions and shopping. To be honest, even if there were nothing else in the area, I would stay here just for Bernard and Marlene's company. They were fantastic.
The accommodation has AC, fans, a kitchen and plenty of space (the suite); there are smaller, less expensive rooms available. Breakfast was fresh and tasty.
