It is the middle of Covid 19, I live in the Central Valley, so I came to support Manuel Antonio area. First time staying at the San Bada. Very nice, very few guest because of the virus, but hotel was clean, staff was friendly. Jefferson had my coffee ready for me early in the morning, as he promised. Love the pool. Very close to beach and Manuel Antonio Park! I’ll be back!

great location, room not as nice as I expected
Fantastic location. Pool was beautiful and well maintained. Staff friendly. Room was less than expected for the price. Hair dryer didn’t work, coffee pot didn’t work and the toilet was loose enough you had to very carefully sit down on it.

Wonderful staff- made an extra effort to know us & help with any questions. Beautiful property with room & balcony facing a beautiful beach. The sound of surf lulled us to sleep. Awesome pool, literally steps from Manuel Antonio Park & small shopping, restaurant street area.
