We loved pretty much everything about this hotel, starting with its unique artistic and environmental-friendly design, ease of access, parking and use. The hotel is a short driving distance from the park Manuel Antonio entrance, and many restaurants and shops.
The hotel has an art gallery that shows local artists which we happen to like very much, and there is very tasteful mosaic art throughout the hotel. It is readily apparent that the architect took a pride in making this space unique, welcoming, airy and culturally distinct.
We had a room on the ground floor adjacent to the open hotel terrace. The terrace has a plenty of comfortable seating and is surrounded by a jungle scenery where you can relax and listen to or spot birds, frogs, and other animals.
Our room was very clean, spacious and comfortable, showcasing the same design as the terrace. The room has large bathroom with very spacious shower, the sink is in the living space. There is also a microwave, coffee maker, fridge and safe, as well as basic utensil to eat at an outdoor private area adjacent to the room. The bed was comfortable though quite firm. The air conditioning worked very well.
The staff was super nice, knowledgeable and accommodating, and did not hesitate to share local information re secluded beaches and activities. There is a swimming pool and jaccuzi, and beach towels upon request.
Breakfast was included in our room rate. There were several choices to select from every morning. The food was plentiful and very good.
As we checked out, we received a lovely token present from the hotel. We recommend this hotel without hesitation and would definitely stay here again.
