Best amazing staff here!

Pros: minutes to beach, Manuel Antonio park & restaurants GREAT STAFF, good food at the restaurant, arrangement for tours, view from 6th floor pool
Cons: Restaurant service is bit slow.
Location: Manuel Antonio park=in front Quepos=15 min Manuel Antonio beach=3 minutes Restaurants in Manuel Antonio =3 minutes Bus stop to Quepos=3 minutes
I travel on business internationally and domestically and hands down they have best servicing staff here. They are so attentive no matter what time of day it was. Restaurant staff too were always available to greet us. They had breakfast buffet on weekend and they offered traditional Costa Rican breakfast or continental on weekday. However they offered extra food for my hungry teenage boys. Restaurant was amazing. Their pasta carbonara was better than regular Italian restaurant (believe me I have been to Italy), tuna appetizers and fillet were so fresh. Their hamburger was biggest we have seen (a bit overcooked). We had fishing trip so we brought fish back and they cooked for us. That was great. You must try their brownies and cheesecake. To die for. Overall we were so impressed with people. Great hotel. Family friendly.
