The Preserve at Los Altos

Reviewed 18 February 2012

My husband and I decided to spend a week in Manuel Antonio for my 40th birthday last week. We stayed at this resort. Let me tell you all that we have stayed at some really nice places but never this immaculate in a foreign country. All of the rooms here are like apartments (ours was 3200 sq feet) and came with living room, dining area, kitchen additional bedrooms, 2 bathrooms, etc. The place was so modern and unbelievable and yet when we were asked what price we paid for the resort many people said that was a great price. It has a good restaurant, beautiful pool and private beach. The hotel shuttle also takes you down to the private beach and picks you up when you desire. You can book tours through the front desk and the prices are pretty comparable on what you'd fine outside the hotel. The guest seemed like family after a few days--world class service. On my birthday I walked into our room and when the elevator does opened into our room (another perk) I was faced with a 4 foot flower arrangement with a happy birthday card from Los Altos Beach resort staff. This was amazing. The guy at the front desk told me that the gardener picked the flowers that morning and they had it made for me. They made my experience so wonderful and I'm going to look forward to another stay here soon. BTW, this property can be used as a hotel, they offer time share and also sell property. A+ experience!

My husband and I spent 3 nights at Los Altos during the first week in February. We were delighted by the accommodations, property and service.

As mentioned here, the condos are top notch! Given the size of the condo we found ourselves disappointed that we didn't have family or friends along to enjoy it with us.

We dined at the onsite restaurant twice for dinner and for breakfast each morning. The food, drinks and service were outstanding. I would recommend sitting on the patio at the edge of the restaurant overlooking the ocean for a sunset happy hour.

The pool is lovely and overlooks the ocean. We were often the only people at the pool which added to the charm. The private beach is also extraordinary. We were also the only people at the beach which felt very indulgent!

There are a couple of things that would have made our stay just a touch better. 1. The hot tubs were not particularly hot (actually a little cool). 2. While the gym is nicely equiped, my husband would have liked treadmill as the weather is quite warm for an outdoor run. 3. Feather pillows in the condos would be a nice addition. Obviously, these small issues would not prevent us from recommending Los Altos to family and friends.

We just got back from a 1 week trip to costa Rica - Arenal, Islita and Manual Antonio. Our stay at Los Altos was incredible. The facilities are very new and beautiful. Each floor has a 3 bedroom 3 bathroom apartment with 2 balconies, beautiful dining area and couch/living area. There is a gorgeous view of the ocean and the restaurant where you have breakfast included is delicious essentially right on the ocean. 4 of us split the cost which is very reasonable and worth it! The staff and owner are very pleasant and accomodating. I couldn't have imagined staying at a better place in Manual Antonio. Tours for ziplining and other activities leave directly from the hotel which make it very convenient as well.

Overall a wonderful expereince. The staff was very welcoming and provided a welcome drink. The condos are awesome; very large with a great view, 3 rooms, full kitchen, full dining and living room. I would definitly go back. Located very close to MA park and all the restaurants in the area. You can not go wrong by staying here.

Room Tip: The higher the floor the better the view.
