“More animals than at the park”
Reviewed 24 July 2008

Thanks to the other reviews here, I stayed here with my husband and 2 young boys for 3 nights. It was perfect. It's a very short walk (less than 5 minutes) to the beach, park and end of town for shops and dining. However it's great that the street it's on is quiet and tucked away. It also borders the back of the park so I was visited by deer, monkeys, sloths and others all while sitting on my patio.

The owner (Mike) and his whole staff were friendly and helpful. The owner introduced himself shortly after we arrived and then led us to a tree with a sleeping sloth. He was also helping out and chatting with guest's every morning at breakfast. He even got the guests and some staff together one night for a bowling trip into Quepos. The staff was helpful in finding a good deal on shuttle rides and advice for things to do. They had a great lunch pizza deal, and a dinner movie night that was tasty and one of the best deals for the $ in town.
When my youngest son became sick with a fever, the lady who was fixing up our room that day even came back (without being asked) with tea with honey for him.

This hotel is small, so don't expect a big resort. It's more of a simple , clean bed and breakfast with a causal home-like feel.

I look forward to retuning next year!

Stayed June 2008

We just returned from two weeks in Costa Rica and La Posada was the highlight of our stay. Mike and his staff are just terrific. Our room was spacious and very clean - we were traveling as a family of 5. Breakfast in the morning was some of the best food we had in Costa Rica. And the atmosphere is just perfect. You can't beat being next to Manuel Antonio, particularly when the monkeys from the park come to visit. Mike will arrange your tours and transportation, as well as recommend places to eat and go out. It truly is the best place to stay.

La Posada was our second stop on our 2 week Costa Rican honeymoon and Mike and his crew at La Posada did not disappoint. Our room was very clean, the front desk staff was helpful and friendly at all times with great suggestions on where to eat, drink and have fun and the location right on the park was great.

Mike was definitely born to be a hotel owner because he knows customer service and would do anything to accommodate his guests. He dropped everything one morning to walk us down to the entrance of the park in order to help us secure a reputable guide that he recommended. The trip into the park as a result was fantastic.

We would definitely go back and would recommend to anyone.

Just back from this inn and highly recommend it. Sits in the hills of a suburb with a great view and nice rooms. You will not be dissapointed, Frank and Rita are very helpful and you will feel at home. A tip, get a cab ride provided by the inn from the airport, it's about $18 and their guy knows where the inn is !! Took our two taxi drivers ages to find it ( Maybe you don't know about the street signs and addresses in C.R. ! )
