Great hotel, great view, great location

Pros: Great views. Location is right next to the Manuel Antonio park. You can easily park here and walk to the park.
Cons: The A/C is a bit old. It has a steep incline just to get to the hotel and the parking is at another level. Please ask for help from their golf cart.
Location: Manuel Antonio state park is right next to it and so is the public beach.
This hotel is perched atop of a small hill and has great views of the beach. The restaurant is excellent with great food and great views.

Premiere Location in Manuel Antonio and Ocean View

Pros: Location and the ocean view from the top.
Cons: Have enough funds to exchange US Dollars into Colones.
Location: Great location to visit one of the best beaches I know in the world including Hawaii, Cancun, Puerto Vallarta and Punta Cana in the DR
Just a few feet from the Manuel Antonio National Park entrance and a short walk to the town beach on which I jogged freely and safely at 6:00 AM each morning. However, if you are not in good shape, climbing some stairs could be a challenge in spite of the useful electric karts manned by the staff. to take you to the top. Now, if you are fitted it will be fun to climb and much more to descend. Breakfast is conveniently included and the attending lady is very kind. The whole staff deserves praise, especially Lucrecia and Adrian. The only inconvenience is that they don't have enough funds to exchange your dollars. However, you can at the National Park's ticket box. A clean and well maintained place which I already recommended to my local and foreign friends.
