Our Caravan Tour selected this hotel as it sits right next to the Manuel National Park. We were perfectly situated to have a fine breakfast and walk casually next door to the park as it opened at 7am. The hotel has a above average pool with a slide that our grandchildren enjoyed very much. The service at the hotel was...

Although this hotel has a great location it needs attention badly. The stench of our room was unbearable. Although they sprayed when we complained the smell came back an hour later. The room also needed a good cleaning. Our feet was filthy from walking on the floor. We were on a Cravan tour and everyone complained about the same thing...

Dear Daddod, We are very sorry that your stay with us was not as amazing as it should be. We have Caravan tours almost daily and the feedback is usually very good. We have a well-trained cleaning staff so there should not have been dirty floors. The mildew smell was most likely due to humidity, not any lack of cleaning....

Our family of four immensely enjoyed our three nights at Hotel San Bada.

We spent a weekend at San bada with 3 friends at it was just perfect. They even got a pizza for us in a local restaurant late at night!!! The breakfast is buffet and delicious. They have a rooftop pool and lounge really romantic or good for partying. I am definitely going back there as soon as I can!!

This hotel has a lot of old world charm with gorgeous views and large rooms. Each room had a balcony where we watched squirrel monkeys playing in the trees.

Hotel San Bada is a gorgeous 5 star hotel next door to Manuel Antonio National Park. The amenities were quite nice - spa, small gym, restaurant, 2 pools… If you’re using the hotel solely as your base for exploring the park, you’re better off going to one of the cheaper hotels on the same block. If however you want to...
