I had a very nice stay at this hotel the staff was very friendly and helpful from bus info to and from San Jose to helping me set up a couple of tours. Everyone there was friendly. The room was clean and the food was great. I would go back to this hotel again.

Stayed here as last part of Exodus trip. The location is perfect for Manuel Antonio National Park which is beautiful with a stunning beach and troops of monkeys to keep us entertained. I absolutely loved the hotel, gorgeous room 14 with spacious balcony, comfy bed and good A/c. The pool is a great place for chilling out after the national...

We had a brilliant stay here in October. We originally booked in for two nights but made a late change and stayed for three nights. The staff were so nice and friendly and really made us feel welcome. The hotel is quirky, as was the lay-out of our room but that added to the charm (the sink was in the...

First the pros - this is a very quaint hotel with lovely furnishings and tasteful decor. Someone referred to it as "old" but if you want to call beautiful antique furniture old that would be true as well. The location can't be beat! A few blocks in one direction is the entrance to Manuel Antonio National Park and 2 blocks...

We saw this hotel on the internet and by the look of it, it was nice so the $160 per night seemed reasonable. We got the last room available and it was nothing like any picture we saw. Really old ugly furnishing and you could listen every single person walking or talking outside, so we couldn't sleep properly. The breakfast...

We stayed at this hotel at the end of February 2017. The woman who checked us in on Sunday was very friendly, and made us feel right at home, despite our limited Spanish (most of the staff is bi-lingual). We were pleasantly surprised at the beautiful hotel grounds, and easy parking right in front of the entrance. The road that...

Thank you very much for your comment, the hotel team villabosque is pleased to be able to serve you during your stay in Manuel Antonio, it is important to clarify that the reservations by the extranet do not include the breakfast service and specifically shown when making your reservations. Breakfast is optional and you can take it in our restaurant,...

They advertise wifi but it's not available in rooms, which means you're outside in the heat if you want to be online. Perhaps not too much of a problem to be outside because the a/c is also intermittent. Lots of apologies but little attempt to make up for any of this. However, great location.

Excellent room and substantial balcony (best if you get one that faces towards the beach). The balcony is great for watching troops of monkeys that regularly patrol along the overhead wires. Hotel very close to the National Park and the beach. In the evening a full range of restaurants is readily accessible by using the regular bus service along the...

We found the staff to be very helpful and friendly which was not always the norm in Costa Rica. The rooms were nice, very clean and well looked after. The whole place was well kept.
