The service was excellent; all the staff were very friendly, courteous, helpful, informative and they all went out of their way to make their guests happy. They had good restaurants, the breakfast buffet which was included in the room was delightful! They had a nice walking trail and beautiful gardens. We did not have a chance to use the pools but they were very nice, overlooking the ocean. We were lucky to be there on Costa Rica's Independence Day. We were invited to join them to their traditional latern parade. Our friends who were staying at another hotel did not have any celebration so we asked the hotel if they could join us and they were welcomed with free lighted lanterns and tasting of typical Costa Rican dishes! This hotel made our visit to Manuel Antonio a very memorable one and we will surely be back with family and friends!
