We stayed at Hotel Mandarina during our 6 day stay in Manual Antonio. Staff were very welcoming and friendly, ready to give advice on restaurant options and directions in the area. Upon arrival our room was updated and we had a lovely view of the grounds and pool area. I loved waking up and seeing the monkeys in the trees just outside our window! The breakfasts were simple but delicious; a great way to start your day by sitting on the beautiful patio surrounded by lush greenery. After an unfortunate situation with our rental vehicle, we ended up having to extend our stay (originally would have headed to the Caribbean side sooner) without much notice to the staff. They were very hospitable and it was no problem to stay an extra night. Not to mention they were also sensitive to our rental vehicle situation that put a bit of a dent in our plans. In the end we did not mind staying an extra night! We loved Manual Antonio and the people there. This hotel was just one of the gems.
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- Hotel Mandarina is a small boutique hotel. It has a history in Manuel Antonio since the early 1990s. It has previously been known as Hotel El Dorado Mojado and Hotel Kekoldi. In 2007, the 12 unit hotel has been given the new name Hotel Mandarina. Mandarina is known as a small orange, like a tangerine, in Costa Rica. Hotel Mandarina is located in Manuel Antonio, just outside the small Pacific coast port town of Quepos. We are at the highest elevation on the main road about halfway between Quepos and Manuel Antonio National Park. If you choose to drive, you can park your rental car in our secure lot behind the reception building. Manuel Antonio is only 3 1/2 hours by car or bus from San Jose, so long as you take the shortest route. Faster yet is a 20 minute plane ride from San Jose on Nature Air or Sansa Airlines. Quepos and Manuel Antonio are fairly easy to navigate since there are only a few main roads. We are just 3 km away from some of the most beautiful beaches in Costa Rica with the entrance to Manuel Antonio National Park at the end of the main road. A twenty minute walk down the secondary road from the hotel will bring you to a secluded beach. The local bus stops 50 yards from the hotel and brings you to the main beach or Manuel Antonio National Park in 5 minutes. There are several restaurants and cafes within walking distance as well as services like supermarket, bank/ATM, bars, yoga/spa, gym, and souvenir stores among others. ... more less
