We stayed here 2 nights during the Easter Holidays, therefore it was actually too expensive (350 $ for 2 nights with 2 children). It is located at 150 m from the beach and 250 m from the entrance of the National Park which is great. There is a pool and you can use the pool of the hotel at the...

A lovely place to stay, easy walk to the beach or the Manuel Antonio national park, a few minutes each. A good quality breakfast , sufficient food , but this was at the main hotel about 100 metres away, across a very quiet road- no problem. Helpful staff, nice small swimming pool, colourful plants all around and some iguana and...

We stayed here for three nights primarily for the convenient location to the park and the beach. The room (15) was small but very clean and with a large fridge and coffee maker. It is located by the pool and office so it was quite noisy during the day but all was quiet after 10 pm. Room 9 looked like...

Just came back from staying in Manuel Antonio. This was a great spot with the beach to the front of us and the rain forest to the side. There was one front desk gentleman(which I forget his name ) was super helpful and made our stay even better. If your looking cheap drinks there's a small hotel that has cheap...

This place was the low point of my Costa Rica trip. It was, by far, the worst money for value room I have ever rented. As soon as we got there we were greeted by the cockroaches in the cabin. Yes, 94 dollars a night for a room with cockroaches. During the night we were awaken several times because of...

We got a very early start to avoid the Holy Week traffic exodus from the central valley. Arrived in Quepos before 9am and stopped for breakfast at a tiny soda. Arrived at the hotel before 10am so we were too early to get the room keys as it wasn't quite ready for us. Spent the morning relaxing and lounging by...

We had a great time here. It is very close to the beach, stores, restaurants and the national park. The rooms are small, clean and a bit cramped but they do have air conditioning. It was nice to have a small kitchen to keep snacks and water cold, and a patio area right outside our door. We had the unit...

I loved this place and really enjoyed my stay. Beautiful location, quiet and relaxing, easy walk to everything, great service. While traveling in Costa Rica, I stayed in four different hotels in this price range, and this was the best. Highly recommended...definitely a bargain.
