Great hotel, great location, wonderful staffPosted Apr 13, 2015
Pros: That it had everything we needed in a beautiful setting, and is small and personal.
Cons: We didn't see monkeys at the hotel during our stay, but that's just how nature works. We did see many in the national park though!
Location: We loved the zipline/canopy tour and also went deep sea fishing, did the ATV/waterfall hike, and hiked on our own in Manuel Antonio national park.
My daughter and I had the pleasure of staying 6 nights at The Falls Resort last week. I cannot say enough positive things about our stay; it was everything we hoped for. The hotel itself has beautiful landscaping and ambiance. Our room was private and spacious with a locked safe, mini-bar, wi-fi, cable TV, and small outside sitting area. The setting was tropical and peaceful. The hotel has a nice restaurant onsite and our rate included breakfast each day. Breakfast included both continental buffet (their banana bread is excellent!) and you can order hot items too (eggs, potatoes, pancakes, etc). They serve drinks poolside - GREAT margaritas. And everyone there was so friendly and helpful. Costa Rica is a slower pace than the US, so this might be different for some people. But we found if you are patient and considerate, it is returned to you double! I want to specially compliment Adriana who helped us with many things. She recommended and booked activities, answered all of my questions, and was a pleasure to see every day. We also enjoyed meeting and seeing other staff at the bar and restaurants every day. It felt like family by the end!! Manuel Antonio area is also very beautiful with more than enough to do for a week. We wished we had more time, and hope to return with the entire family next time! And would definitely stay here again. If you are looking for charming, "local," boutique hotel (vs. a big resort like Marriott), this is it!

I now have The Place to stayPosted Apr 12, 2015
Pros: The staff made you feel like you were with family. I watch how everyone was treated. From Michael getting your bags, to Big Lou and Roberto at dinner.
Cons: Can't think of anything bad to say.
Location: Manuel San Antonio needs better signage. When you move a entrance you need to tell.
Great staff, Good Food, Room was awesome. The people at the hotel made the experience one I will not forget.

The Falls won't disappointPosted Mar 12, 2015
Just returned from a stay at the Falls. Nice location, pretty gardens, clean, small pool. The staff is friendly and helpful. The breakfast is nice. You can eat all the fresh fruit you want. We stayed in a deluxe room and the Internet was pretty good.

Amazing staff! Best food!Posted Mar 12, 2015
This hotel is a quick walk or bus ride to the beach. The staff is absolutely amazing! The restaurant is one of the best of anywhere we ate! We saw monkeys from our room and a sloth hanging out front!! There is no hot tub but the pool is perfect temperature and it was too hot for a hot tub while we were there anyway. One thing people who have handicaps should know is that there is no elevators and most rooms are up stairs. Also, no phones, hair dryers, or coffee pots in rooms. The coffee at breakfast is amazing though! Actually, coffee everywhere in Costa Rica was amazing! I would definitely stay here again!

Tropical RainforestPosted Mar 10, 2015
Friendly, attentive, and informative staff. Hotel grounds resembled a lush tropical rainforest punctuated by clusters of rooms. The room itself had high-ceilings and a rustic feel. A mosquito net drape accompanied the bed and was useful at night. A/C and fan are available and adjustable. The bathroom was beyond spacious with a walk-in shower and bench. The outside porch included a seating area as well as hammock. The hotel restaurant was delicious and modern with attentive staff and included a filling breakfast buffet and entree. Beach towels were provided. Parking was easy and the local bus stop was just steps away to both Manuel Antonio and Quepos (especially given the hilly, windy roads).

Falls Resort is an absolute paradise.Posted Mar 4, 2015
Pros: Size, friendly staff and location to the beach.
Cons: Extra hooks in the bathroom to hang hats, bathing suits etc.
Location: Zip Lining in the rain forest, sunset cruise, beach, fishing, parasailing, jet skis, tours of national forest.
We just spent a week at Falls Resort with another couple. It was fantastic. The resort is small (23 rooms) which is exactly what we wanted, but the grounds of the hotel felt like you were in a larger resort. We saw so much wildlife just around the hotel... sloths, monkeys, agoutis (aka whackamole), birds, iguanas and lots of butterflies. The staff at the resort were wonderful and always helpful and smiling. We stayed in a casita which was very private, very large and very clean. The pool was perfect and just the right size for the size of the resort. This was our first visit to Manuel Antonio but it was very easy to get to the beach by bus from the hotel and there are plenty of restaurants within walking distance. Enjoyed some great meals. The breakfast at the hotel was very good and plenty to keep us going until lunch. The only downfall is the 3 hour drive from the airport, but if you've never been to Costa Rica it is a nice way to see the various geography of the country. There is always the option of a short flight to Quepos from San Jose if you don't want to drive.

Great stay at The FallsPosted Jan 29, 2015 on Hotels.com
Nicely appointed room providing an abundance of closet space. Wifi was easily accessed. The grounds were beautiful. The complimentary breakfast buffet provided many options including juice, fruit, yogurt, sausage, breads and cereal. In addition, guests are provided a cooked to order entree. Although we had a car, the hotel is well situated, which allowed us to walk to a number of restaurants. The front desk staff was very knowledgeable about activities in the area and assisted us with bookings and directions.

Underbart ställe!Posted Jan 28, 2015 on Hotels.com
Fantastiskt fint hotell med en vacker trädgård i vilken vi såg lika mycket djurliv som i nationalparken. Även frukosten är fantastisk! Lite långt att gå till och från stranden men området är bra vad gäller restauranger. Rekommenderas!
