Is there transportation to the beach from hotel or is it within reasonable walking distance?
How far from hotel is the beach? Is transportation available to and from beach?
Nearest beach I think it by Manuel Antonio national park and there are lots of buses from the main road. Hope that helps.

"Check things in your room work before committing ."
"Top floor ocean view"
"Room #39 is off separate from the rest of the hotel rooms, upstairs with an amazing view. Really the best view I think, and super private :)"
