8/10 Very good

Nice, but Overpriced
The accommodations at Los Altos are definitely beautiful and spacious. We stayed in a 3 bedroom with a family of 5 and there was more than enough room. The grounds were well kept and the staff was polite and helpful. The breakfasts were great with various cook to order options. There was an abundance of wildlife roaming the property that made my children especially happy. The private beach is underwhelming and very rocky. We ended up taking a taxi to the public beach each day that was much nicer. We have stayed in the Manuel Antonio area many times, but this was our first stay at Los Altos. Overall, I feel like this property is quite overpriced comparing it to the other places we've stayed.

10/10 Exceptional

We had an excellent time at Los Altos. All the staff at the hotel were great. Kenneth at the front desk was so nice. All the araganements made through the hotel reservations department (Esteban, Efrain and Saidmon) were handled without issue. We saw more wildlife on the property then we did on our tour of Manuel Antonio National Park. The first day on our walk down to the beach we came across a bunch of white faced monkeys that crossed 5 feet in front of us. Later that day at the pool a group of squirrel monkeys came down from the trees and everyone grabbed their camera. The food and the service at the resturant and pool were super. The room was probably the best I have ever stayed in with a fantastic view.

4/10 Fair

Friendly and clean, but UNCOMFORTABLE.
My main disappointment was with the beds and pillows-hard as a rock! I ended up sleeping on the couch the last night of our stay because I simply could not handle another night in that bed. I’ve had better sleep on planes!

The staff service and the view were excellent! The location in a tropical climate with lush vegetation and a variety of wildlife was superb. The cushions at the pool area and the living room in the penthouse need replacement though as they were dirty.
