It was an added bonus they had to stray cat that lives on the premises we got to play with. I enjoyed the goodbye gifts they gave us as well that was an extra Personal Touch we will be returning!


This was AMAZING!!! Jonathan was so kind! Mariella, was so sweet... My daughters miss her so much! We were lucky enough to have the absolute best room in the whole hotel and were so thankful for this! The terrasse was fabulous, the monkey visits made the stay worth it and it was nice to be away from the high traffic of Manuel Antonio.Why stay anywhere else?


Wow! The room was huge, 6 different choices for breakfast, a nice pool, nice lounge area. Super helpful guys behind the desk. They lent us beach towels, an umbrella, called us taxis, called to check on transportation. We were sorry to leave after the 4 nights were up.
