Fodor's Review

Simple but spacious mint-green and cream rooms with big windows are a short walk from the beach and surrounded by green lawns bordered on two sides by the tall trees of Manuel Antonio National Park. Some rooms have good-size kitchens with modern appliances. A small blue-tile pool and patio have a pleasant adjacent bar area with a billiard table. Directly behind are a tennis court and a large, open-air restaurant, though there are better places to dine in the area. The location—within walking distance to the beach and park—is the main draw here, so expect a few hiccups like patchy Wi-Fi and cold showers.
