It has the perfect location to access the park and the beach but it doesn't have ocean view from its rooms. Only from the 6th floor you have a nice sunset view. Massive bathroom. Bit dated though. Needs somehow better maintainance.

The location is the best, just a few meters from Manuel Antonio park entrance. Staff really nice and helpful. Breakfast was delicious with a lot of options. My daughter enjoyed a lot the swimming pool.

I would stay elsewhere. The exhaust from the buses is reason enough. The only reason I picked this hotel was because it assured me that it was accessible for my disabled mother, but it was not as it was advertised. There were about ten stairs down to the beach which they

The hotel is located right at the entrance of the national park. Very convenient. 6th floor roof top deck has fantastic views. Very spacious room. Quiet and calm in the middle of the rain forest. Food is excellent at the restaurant.

The area is very safe during the day. There are great places to eat...and a path to go to the public beach. My husband and I walked to the little downtown in Manuel Antonio in the evening...but we were always back by 9, or took a taxi. Many tourists walk at night.

Is there a hair dryer in each room?
Checking their website for this info is a great idea! My traveling companion thinks there is a dryer in each room, but doesn't really remember.
