We stayed in the Toucan and Monkey rooms at the Costa Paraiso in early August. This was our favorite place of the entire trip. Both rooms were large, clean, and wonderfully decorated. The view from the deck of the Toucan was spectacular. The staff was so nice and helpful. Sandra helped us arrange a fishing trip the night we arrived for the next morning. She also arranged a horseback trip for us. The grounds are beautiful and right on the beach. This was one of the few places we found where you could stay just steps from the beach.
The food in the attached restaurant was so good that we wound up eating there the whole stay.
We really enjoyed the peaceful atmosphere. There are only five rooms so it is not crowded. It is also in a good location to explore both the Manuel Antonio area and the beaches further to the south.
My only regret is that we only stayed two nights. I could have easily stayed much longer.
