The Makanda by the Sea exceeded our expectations. It is conveniently located near Manuel Antionio Parque, but feels very secluded and private. The two infinity pools were absolutely stunning with beautiful views of the ocean and tropical terrain. We saw sloths, monkeys, birds, lizards and hermit crabs on our daily walks around the resort. The beach was private with nice quiet lounge swings made for two. Our suite was newly remodeled and incredibly nice. The food and drinks were delicious. The staff spoiled us with their attentive service. I highly recommend this hotel.

Room tip: Some rooms are easier to get to than others if you have difficulty walking up stairs or on steep grades.

I stayed in Makanda Hotel for a couple of nights on March 2021 and my experience was the best ever. The architecture is outstanding, the rooms crafted in every detail and the ocean view is amazing. During Friday they had live music and dinner was great! I will sure be back.

A magical place, full of peculiar details like no other. The best Hotel in Manuel Antonio.
You can see AMAZING sunset all over the spots of the hotel, extraordinary biodiversity in all areas, warm service that made me feel so special.
I wish I could stay forever.
