  • LAURA C :
Manuel Antonio Jewel!

Rooms are very comfortable. Had garden view. The service and amenities are top notch.We loved it!!!! The infinity pool has great view over the Pacific!!! The Spanish style hotel is lovely and is in an excellent location. I looked at other hotels in the area and this hotel is a good value for what you get.

Charming property in the middle of the rain forest

My family of five plus a nanny stayed here last week in room 5533, a penthouse suite. We were greeted first thing by accommodating staff handing us all cool fresh hand towels to cool ourselves off as we went through the painless check in process. That same kind of attention from staff lasted throughout our stay. Our room was spotless, two big bedrooms, two decks, three bathrooms, and a full sized kitchen. It was as modern as you can get-- and had 360 degree views of the Pacific and the bay to the east. The property has it's own nature walks where you will see sloths, monkeys, toucans, iguanas, hummingbirds, and many other flora and fauna too many to mention. The property is literally like its own little ecosystem, and it is kept in pristine condition. This destination was great with three kids, and provided a wonderful spot to enjoy Manuel Antonio for the three nights we were there. I have already highly recommended this resort to friends and family, and am pleased to be able to recommend it to the tripadvisor community.

Beautiful, convenient and very accommodating

Could not have asked for a better place to spend our last few days in Costa Rica. I've been traveling here since 2010, mainly with groups, and this has been one of our best experiences. Rooms were beautiful, the grounds are outstanding, it is super convenient to all attractions and the staff was extremely accommodating. Would highly recommend it!

Large and lovely comfortable hotel

This hotel was the last stop in Costa Rica before returning home. It has a very interesting reception area, with many Spanish artefacts on show. Set in its own grounds, the hotel is some way from the beach but there is a shuttle bus for those wishing to avoid the long walk. The accommodation is very comfortable, the adjacent wildlife is a joy to hear (although it can be rather noisy in the early hours of the morning). The hotel staff were most helpful.

Large Resort with a Great Environment

We stayed here for five nights as part of our Costa Rica tour (Arenal & Monteverde). The Hotel is more classic large resort with good amenities, three pools, multiple restaurants (although only two were open during our trip) and caters for both adult only and kids. The Hotel has excellent location immersed within its rainforest surroundings and because of that doesn't have the classic large resort feeling. The resort is built around its surroundings and makes you feel part of it, with abundant wildlife all around. We upgraded to a premium plus room (417) which for the balcony and trees which it overlooked from height was worth it alone. We saw two types of toucans, three toed sloth, howler and capuchin monkeys in the treetops at a distance of a couple of metres from our balcony. If you are willing to upgrade, we recommend to ask for either rooms 415 or 417 as they are facing the tree all the animals particularly favour! The Hotel has trails around its grounds which are also good for wildlife spotting. Its restaurant is good, if a little over priced and while we enjoyed eating there we certainly recommend testing some of the good restaurants in the surrounding area (the Falls Garden Cafe was a particular highlight). In summary, this Hotel has a good balance of amenities and environment and is well worth a stop. The only reason we haven't given the 5 stars is the bathroom. As seen on the photo, it was average.
