The staff and the hotel was extremely pleasant and welcoming. The hotel itself is located in the perfect spot with lots of wild life right outside. Our stay was wonderful. My only request would be for them to invest in new towels and sheets as ours had holes in them. Otherwise it was a wonderful stay and delicious breakfast daily!

Great choice
Very new and modern hotel with spacious and pleasant rooms (very clean!) a beautiful garden out back where you can watch birds and monkeys from your room. Pool area is lovely and very relaxing (and also features good animal watching).The breakfast is nice. The hotel is just a short drive (8 min?) from Manuel Antonio park.

Our visit
Very helpful and friendly staff. Our room was right off the pool deck with a view from the living room of the forest. We were able to see monkeys, macaws and a sloth. The hotel is in the hills and I didn’t feel comfortable walking on the roads with no sidewalks so we either drove or got a ride.
