In 2014, a full renovation and new management transformed what had been a rundown property into Manuel Antonio's best budget secret with delightful rooms overlooking a central pool, just minutes from Playa Espadilla and the national park. Each spacious room has a mini-refrigerator, Wi-Fi, air-conditioning, and a shaded terrace overlooking the lush gardens and tiny pool. If you can swing it, opt for a deluxe or junior room with a few more amenities and creature comforts. Only the studio has a full kitchen, but the on-site restaurant serves fresh fish, American favorites, and a hearty breakfast. This quiet, clean, and simple property provides an element of privacy and nature, with its freestanding rooms and wild monkeys that come out to greet you poolside.
