Incredible staff and hotel dedicated to sustainability. We were intitally disappointed it was not closer to the beach. We'd been told it was a 10-minute walk downhill, but it was not in any way a road safe enough to walk, not to mention quite a bit farther to the beach. Hotel free beach shuttle was helpful, but only ran certain hours. We felt stuck having to take taxis everywhere. All that said, the restaurant staff learned our names and greeted us daily and provided special extra attention at all times of day. We loved the adult pool with swim-up bar. The view was indeed nice, but for the $400 per night, I was just expecting a lot more luxury. Free entry to the butterfly exhibit across the street was enjoyable.
This was an amazing place. The only negative is that there are numerous stairs and and hills within the property but we understand that because of the location this can't really be helped. The service was great, the food was excellent and the surroundings were amazing!
The hotel was beautiful and the staff were very friendly. We enjoyed seeing monkeys and lizards right on the hotel grounds.
Staff here super friendly & this resort was awesome for running from! Quite a workout with the elevation changes!
Food was pricey and the quality was only average
Great view, great service and excellent stay!
Great hillside hotel (lots of stairs) with a nice swim up pool bar and theater. Our room smelled musty but was very clean. Staff was very helpful in recommending nearby restaurants.
Too many steps to the dining rooms and pools. But the place was beautiful.
This hotel is out dated. Keys for hotel rooms??? Not a lot of outlets. Our room was low on property and we had barely a view of ocean. Music from neighboring hotel was problematic for special needs son. Staff very accommodating, friendly, went above and beyond to see to our comfort.
Went the extra mile when setting up guides and cooking our catch from the charter boat at very reasonable price.
The adult pool had no view and was not very nice. The family pool was much better but crowded.
Outstanding service and great food! We loved the views and access to the beach. We would definitely stay here again.
Staff were fantastic but the rooms were a little disappointing, old décor and in need of refurbishment.
Pool chairs were a bit uncomfortable but overall this was an amazing experience. Staff was fantastic!
Very friendly staff. It was a beautiful and fun hotel.
BEST view of our trip.
Nice rooms and beautiful views. Also saw tropical birds and animals throughout the resort. The only thing missing was room service to deliver food.
An exceptional place. Shuttle to downtown was very convenient!
Lobby staff was very helpful and moved our room (to a better view). Pool bartender was very helpful and very fun to hang out with. Views were incredible everywhere!
The hotel was beautiful. We had a wonderful time here.
breakfast was lacking in options and quality. accommodations were nice
We loved this hotel. It was very relaxing and the down time is just what we needed. It is very beautiful and we enjoyed the staff and the pool and the spa!
Fabulous resort. Just loved it.
This hotel was fine, but I didn't think it was worth the price. It was a lovely resort, with multiple pools (one was adult only) with swim up bars. The included breakfast was great. We had a great view from our balcony and the room was spotless, but I was expecting to be blown away given the price. I recommend walking down the road to a number of the great coffee shops / restaurants nearby (
Not as luxurious as the first location. We had hoped it would be a bit easier to get to the beach. The location is good with several nearby restaurants.
Beautiful hotel and rooms with gorgeous views of the ocean. The staff were all very friendly and happy to help with any questions / requests. Not having TVs in the rooms was a great idea...... loved the place.
loved it and cannot wait to go back!
Beautiful! The staff was so attentive and friendly from the front desk to the servers in the restaurant. The rooms were spotless and very comfortable. The food was excellent. We ate at both restaurants most nights, even though there were other good places in walking distance. This place was a gem.
Perfect hotel for the kids. Loved the idea you can walk across the street to the park tour.
It was our least favorite of the three accommodations, but definitely adequate.
Actually enjoyed all the steps to "walk off" some calories
No TV was a bummer
Beautiful view, nice pool areas, staff was super friendly. Bathrooms may need to be updated but still really enjoyed the hotel. The location was great!
A very nice hotel. It is nice that there is an adult and a seperate family pools. Good breakfast and restaurants were good. Supermarket up the street as well a falafel restaraunt. No reservations recommending Si Como No
One of the best hotel resort i have ever stayed and experienced.
Loved the swim up bars and pool service. Very good food at the restaurants. We had a great room. Loved the butterfly enclosure they give you access to across the street.
Fabulous view from room, transport to beach was great, breakfast amazing
This was a nice and comfortable hotel. Typically the staff was on point except for our experience with them breaking down an event over our room after midnight. Judging from what we say on our travels - we felt fortunate to stay in what looked like the nicest available hotel in the area.
Missed not having a TV but on the plus side were able to walk to other venues
because of extensive rain, we had to eat at the hotel often. the food was mediocre
No one greeted us at the van. Had to slog our luggage into the hotel ourselves. Not a big deal, just not expected Room was basic, view was lovely.
The hotel staff were very friendly. The grounds of this hotel were breath taking.
The hotel was again, beautiful and we loved the view from our room. The staff was wonderful and the air conditioning worked very well. We loved the on-site restaurant. The hotel did have a private movie theater but they planned only PG-rated movies at 8:00 It would have been better for the guests if two movies were offered; a kid movie at 7:00 and a PG-13 movie at 9:00. There were quite a few adults without children watching Wall-E because sunset was fairly early and there was little to do at night on-site.
The hotel is old and needs upgrades but it was awesome just sitting on the back porch watching the wild life and the views. Leo and his Latin music made it a memorable experience.
Loved this place. We were greeted by a troop of monkeys when we arrived. Kids loved the pool and the view was fantastic.
It was a bit more luxurious than what I expected...and also more expensive. If I had to do it again, I would ask for a somewhat less fancy place...although it was nice!
This is a really nice resort. We had a breath taking view of the ocean. The bird watching from the balcony in the morning was fantastic. The staff was incredibly attentive whenever we needed anything. A great place for families to stay in Manuel Antonio.
Gorgeous hotel and very courteous staff. Food was great with lots of options nearby.
The views are amazing. The resort feels super premium and the pool was a great place to relax. The staff was very friendly and they offer a free shuttle to the beach, which was a pleasant surprise. The morning breakfast view was the best we had the entire vacation. The two restaurants offered great food and quick bites in the pool bar. We would have loved to extend our stay.
Two restaurants onsite provided tasty food and prices were not excessive. Staff was not too engaging.
Absolutely gorgeous view from the hotel & very close to beach.
