Descent hotel, big spacy room, but nothing specialPosted Dec 2, 2013
Hotel is close to the park. Rooms are very large and quit spacey but other than that nothing special. No view, no nothing.

Nice hotel in the jungle but close to beachPosted Oct 31, 2013
Just as we checked in, a couple of yellow billed toucans flew by and perched on the tree outside our room. 'Got a couple of nice shots. The beach, although close to the hotel, is not really walking distance (about 1.5 miles and hilly). There are public buses that can take you there and back (for about 75 cents each way every 20-30 minutes).

Unique propertyPosted Aug 2, 2013
Pros: Enjoyed strolling around the property. The staff was very friendly and quite helpful.
Location: Located on top of a hill it's within walking to an art gallery, shopping, & Serpentarium. Short drive to Manuel Antonio Park (long walk on twisty rd.)
This hilltop property has a stream and lush gardens. Great for children seeking up close viewing of reptiles, amphibians, and mammals. Serpentarium next door offers guided day & night tours to view butterflies, reptiles, frogs. Some rooms offered ocean views with gated parking for safe keeping. Hotel not far from entrance to Manuel Antonio Park. Casino on property if you like slots, pool, and cards. Noise not an issue even on a Sat. night. Staff very friendly that spoke excellent english. They were helpful in providing directions and giving advice on places to travel for our family. Restaurant food was good and pool was cool and clean. There are elevation changes on this property. I would discourage people who have difficulty using stairs. Otherwise, enjoy your stay! Pura vida!

Great barPosted Mar 10, 2013 on Hotels.com
We stayed here the first night of our trip (friends wedding) The room was comfortable and the food at the restaurant was great. We had to wait before we could check into our next hotel and the staff at the Byblos were great and watched our bags for us. The wedding was at a hotel up the street and we went to Byblos bar after and everyone had a great time! (Ladies night drinks were horrible though)
Really nice place but was misleadPosted Mar 9, 2013 on Hotels.com
This was a really nice hotel about a 25 minute hike to the beach. We had the bungalow which had a patio that looked into the rainforesty type environment where we happened to see lots of monkeys, and other critters in the afternoon. A/C was awesome, breakfast was decent, and location was short walking distance to some great restaurants like cafe aqua azul and cafe milagro (which we ate at 3 times). Btw, best ceviche ever! All in all, everything great except one big thing! I was mislead to believe that the bungalows had one king bed AND one queen bed.....all the bungalow pictures on this site has two beds on it AND even the hotels.com description of the bungalow said one king bed and one queen bed. The pictures also showed rooms that at least looked twice as big as what we got too. So, naturally, after seeing the room at check-in, I was more than disappointed. Thankfully, everything else was satisfactory to bring this up to a solid 4.
