Beautiful hotel
The hotel is beautiful, with great location near the Manuel Antonio National Park and restaurants. The beach is in 10 minutes drive. You can also use bus from nearby station. The staff is very welcoming and friendly. Especially manager Eduardo was very nice, polite and helpful. The hotel is a little bit outdated, but its charm, service and price well overweight it.

The manager and staff super helpful. They answer pretty all my questions about what to do and where to eat. Location- good location and the view is amazing and 10 minutes walk to the beach. It is quiet and you do not hear the traffic. Room- Clean, comfortable, and good AC. They even have a mini fridge. They do have a pool and continental breakfast. The Free Wi-Fi also good. Laundry- complimentary on same day and you can’t really beat that. Overall- Very happy.

El estacionamiento no es muy grande, por lo que hubo una noche en la que no se tuvo espacio para parquear, sin embargo se acomodó el carro bajo los arboles. Podria ayudar el demarcar los espacios, para que haya espacio para mas carros y que no quede a cada quien como acomodarse

Super Preis-/Leistungsverhältnis
Wir haben nur eine Nacht auf der Durchreise dort übernachtet, wären aber gerne noch ein paar Tage geblieben. Zimmer ist sehr einfach und funktional, hat aber A/C und alles was es braucht. Sehr grün rundherum und schöner Pool sowie sehr schöner Ort, um zu frühstücken. Wir kommen gerne wieder!

El lugar es hermoso, hay un silencio y una paz perfectas para descansar y olvidarse por unos días del ruido de la ciudad. El servicio al cliente es de lo mejor, te tienen atención al 100%. Las instalaciones en buen estado y el desayuno delicioso. Yo si volvería.
