We had a very large panoramic suite on then 7th level of the building. The space was huge but th inventory of the apartment very basic. We were with six people and there were exactly 6 plates, no bowls to eat some yoghurt, no good knives to cut your fruits. No tv in the bedrooms, no dishwashing machine anymorein the...

You win some and you lose some, as the old saying goes. We are sorry that your stay with us did not meet your expectations, but of course we are reassured by the hundreds of other five star reviews from over the years that testify to our hard work to create a warm, welcoming, and luxurious tropical Costa Rican escape....

We (family of four) spent four nights at Los Altos and it was pure bliss. When the elevator opens up and you find yourself in a huge suite, with multiple large balconies, gorgeous bathrooms and other creature comforts, there is not much else that you can say but "Wow!" The breakfasts were great, particularly on the first day when we...

My stay at Los altos was nothing short of extraordinary. It is in a prime location, walking distance to the beach, restaurants, a grocery store, and shops. When my friends and I walked into our condo we could not believe how beautiful and spacious it was. Every room had a balcony. There were expansive views of the ocean and gorgeous...

I've stayed at Los Altos 3 times. The rooms at Los Altos are beautiful, spacious, and really built for a celebratory sort of visit with a family or several couples. In most of the rooms you've got a big balcony, a great kitchen, spacious living room a master bedroom, a double, and two singles. The showers are always a highlight...

Loved the uncrowded privacy of this luxurious condo resort. Front desk staff is knowledgeable and accommodating. Ask Dennis to take you to Manuel Antonio...his is definitely one of the lead guides in the park!

Would return again. A huge space! We stayed on 5th floor and the higher you go, the better the view BUT you can simply walk to pool or restaurant to get a fantastic sunset. Food was great - esp breakfast. Super convenient to walk to a diff place for lunch or dinner each day.

Our apartment was huge! But very nice indeed and a great place to relax. The front desk staff were really friendly and helpful, as were the restaurant staff. The beach was absolutely lovely and, surprisingly, totally deserted when we went. There is a shuttle service to the beach – use it. We decided to try the walk and it was...

This really feels like a stay in an apartment, rather than in a full-service hotel, but that's not actually a bad thing. The suites are extremely spacious will multiple balconies, some looking out towards the ocean. The styling of the rooms is modern and comfortable and the hotel's own site (and pictures on TripAdvisor) are a realistic reflection of what...
