Before getting into this review, I would like to preface it by mentioning it that it was the result of a Groupon "Trifecta" trip to Costa Rica. Therefore you will need to know that my journey does not end here but also at two other, completely different locations at this Central America location. The organizer of the Groupon deal was...

Reception staff were wonderful! They changed my room after first night to accommodate my need for fewer steps to/from room/front entrance. They helped me with tour planning and modifying. They gave me info about the bus routes. The place is not high end but is comfortable, with functioning AC and in a lovely setting. It's also near bus stops to...

Convenient location near bus stop, Restaurants. Taxi to grocery store. Beautiful landscape. No shade trees or umbrellas around pool. They don't use much or any chlorine in pools. Apartment 114 Had older appliances, all electric. Air conditioning was good. Beds were comfortable. Floors pretty dirty! Stark old furnishing closer to European standard not USA. Hot water was plentiful for showers...

How many hotels have their own rainforest? How many hotels feature agoutis, iguanas, a crocodile and weird glass sculptures, on a carefully landscaped and laid-out terrain? Just one, I'm betting. Yes, the Casitas Eclipse is not a new place, and yes, they only have wifi in certain areas. But the rooms are enormous, the A/C works, and the staff are...

The hotel is dated.. Unlike most hotels, there were no amenities (soap, shampoo, etc) in the room. Air conditioning in our room was an antique and noisy. It sounded like an engine running right next to our room. Faucets were 'loose' that the whole set rotates with the handle. We never had 'clean' towels that were free from dirts or...

We stayed here while in Manuel Antonio and there was three of us to the room. The room is extra large. The grounds were well manicured.There were always Agouti's roaming the grounds early in the mornng. The chestnut-mandibled toucans were in the trees everyday which we got to make fantastic pic opportunities. There is a restaurant directly across the street...

The hotel is ideally located, a 20 minute walk from the beach (uphill) and near several nice places to eat. We also saw lots of toucans, monkeys and other wildlife just down the road which was amazing! It's a safe and relaxed area. Sadly, the hotel itself is very dated and falls way behind the many lovely ones in the...

After I read the other reviews, I was a little worried about this hotel. No reason! The grounds are beautiful and kept impeccably clean, and the view from our room was spectacular. Our room was very nice -- better than ours at home (and with three beds... I kind of felt like Goldilocks), and the bathroom was also nice --...
