We took a chance and stayed two night this week 11/21 and was charged $70 plus tax. This hotel room had a view of the ocean - beware- all rooms face the pool and you need to look to your left to see the ocean. Only rooms at the end have a view of the beach. Ramone the guy working the desk was super friendly. They promise free WiFi - FYI you can only get a signal not from your room but the open air lobby - which is cool b/c there are tables and chairs. The room had a king size bed, AC, an medium sized bathroom and kitchenette. We had a frig and coffee pot - both worked and we used them!. There was an in room safe box if you bring your own luck. They were making repairs as this was the off season and so construction was going on - about 7am. No problem we were up by 6. Our room did have bugs - ants and spiders - to be expected - we were armed with big spray. We asked for extra pillows as the ones we had were pancake flat and the mattress was rock hard. We got pillows but the case were dirty - literally dirt stains - we used them anyway. With private beach access and in walking distance to the park -we didn't complain. We did have them arrange for the chef to cook breakfast at 630am - but he didn't show until 7 which was when we were leaving so, no experience with the food. Just know you stay here for the location. No wildlife visits- if you seek this out stay on the opposite side of the street - you choose beach or jungle. Beach access leads you to a great guy who rents hotel guests 2 chairs, umbrella and a surf board or boogie board for the entire day for $10. The local beach cafe makes a mean margarita and great ceviche, ate there 2x. Happy hour 2 for 1 4-6. Good deal.

4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 18 September 2011

we had visited Manuel Antonio in 1991 and fell in love with the area. It is a totally natural setting and with the National Park at the end of the beautiful beach, we knew we had found a true Central American paradise. Back then there we stayed closer to Quepos, but took the local bus into the park every day, and we knew then that we would be back! So 20 years later, we did just that -and this time we found a real pearl -the HOTEL VERDE MAR. The place is very well situated, with a walkway (and security gate) to the beautiful public beach, where for a few $$ we could rent a beach umbrella and 2 lounge chairs for as long as we needed each day. The hotel itself could use some freshening, but at the low prices they charge for the rooms, you can't complain! There is even a lovely pool, that is kept very clean, and is for the hotel guests' use only (thanks to the security gate!) The staff are all very accommodating and knowledgable, and are happy to help, providing they are not already busy with a check-in or another guests' needs -you can't expect 5-star service here, you're not paying for that! The rooms are cleaned every day and fresh towels, etc are provided daily. We were very happy to have the little kitchenette, as we don't eat big breakfasts, and we were able to purchase the local DELICIOUS coffee from Café Milagro from the nearby mini market, as well as milk, bread and butter, condiments and some fresh fruit -all that we needed for preparing our breakfast was available in our room, and the staff cleaned everything up when they did the room. We were careful however, to boil water and pour it over the cups, plates and utensils ourselves. Also, we purchased bottled water to prepare our coffee. Anyone who's suffered through Montezuma's Revenge will understand why it's never too much and effort to be careful of the water! The only complaint had to do with something entirely outside the hotel's control -a group of howler monkeys would arrive at late afternoon on the occasional day, and set up a horrible racket on the roof of the hotel. One of them even used a lose piece of the metal roofing as a percussion instrument, banging and howling and screeching enough to wake the dead -but the staff would always chase it away, after awhile.... otherwise, it was peaceful, clean and very well-run -definitely a place to return to, and to recommend!

Room Tip: ask for an upstairs room away from the entrance.

This self-proclaimed "funky" hotel was so much more for us that we extended our stay from 2 to 4 nights. The staff were very friendly & helpful. The location was fantastic! - just a few steps from the beach, a short walk to markets & Manuel Antonio park & quite close to great restaurants. We stayed in the "loft" & loved it! The pool was inviting & the chef on site prepared yummy drinks & meals.

Room Tip: Ask for the loft if you don't mind going up a narrow spiral staircase!

Loved the monkeys hanging out on the eaves in the reception area.! My daughter and I stayed here in late August during low season and the weather was spectacular! The park is literally a 5 minute walk and the beach is basically in the back yard. Very clean, A/C works great! Oscar at the front desk was a gem, providing insights--gave us name of great, cheap breakfast spot. Iguanas on the beach near the park. Surfing lesson was only $25 for 1.5 hours which turned into 2 hours. Be sure to have the chef cook for you--what a great evening with our own personal chef (and be sure to try his special fruit drinks). Pool is clean and peaceful with some shade if you get tired of the sand in your clothes. Security is good (we had problems at a previous hotel in La Fortuna). For the price, this is a great little hotel.

Room Tip: go in low season and ask for a room closer to the beach, away from reception
