Perfect stay in Manuel Antonio
Beautiful hotel in a beautiful setting. The room was very comfortable and offered spectacular views. The pool area was very spacious and comfortable. The staff were all very friendly and accommodating.

6/10 Good

The hotel has an amazing view of the sea , their terrace , swimming pool , some of the room no doubt have a really fantastic view. However I do think it doesn’t worth the value for the room quality and breakfast. The breakfast was very basic, the room was very shabby , then we asked to upgrade since we don’t think the initial room is worth the price.

10/10 Exceptional

Beautiful scenic views and walking distance to dining options. Very helpful staff and a fulfilling complementary breakfast. The room amenities were good and the balcony views were fascinating (Ocean view room). The infinite pool was super as well as bar pool. Parking was little tricky as only 8-10 spots available near the top close to hotel and at an inclination so not easy and then many at the bottom but a bit stair walk.

Our stay started with a wonderful greeting and smooth process when checking in. During our week stay, Geovanny and the rest of the staff were more than accommodating, friendly, professional, and very hard working. I would definitely stay here again in a future visit.

My room had a partial view but is was way more than partial! Beautiful views of Manuel Antonio Beach, flying red macaws, and the sounds of howler monkeys. The resort is beautiful and my kids loved the pools. Staff was very friendly and helpful to set up tours. They have an amazing restaurant onsite. We saw wildlife on the property which made my kids excited. A very beautiful resort!
