You're likely to see monkeys, iguanas, and all kinds of birds on the forest trails surrounding these varied accommodations, some are scattered with screened walls that let the breeze through, some with kitchens and ocean views, one converted from a Boeing 727 fuselage. Adult-only studios are spacious, with large balconies; those in the other buildings are smaller but are air-conditioned. Three fully equipped bungalows are available for groups of up to six. The cheaper "efficiencies" are a mixed lot—only those in Building D, in the jungle overlooking the sea, are recommended; Buildings B and C aren't. The hotel has four themed restaurants in Manual Antonio; Anaconda Restaurant and the dinner-only La Cantina across the street are your best options.
