Beautiful Boutique Hotel
Posted Feb 5, 2017
Got a great deal on Expedia and took a chance. That was a good decision. Clean, comfortable, semi-high end, toucans in the tree by the pool, monkeys outside the restaurant, everything you needed, they provided. Highly recommended. The staff can't do enough for you.
A bit far from Manuel Antonio beach, but also away from the crowds. $8 cab ride to the beach if you want to go. They provide regular shuttles, but on their time. Cab back at your cost. Not a bad deal.
There is a small beach near the hotel, but it is a bit of a hike down a dirt trail. But once you get there, the Ticos have setup chairs and umbrellas ($8 for the day), and others will sell you cerviche, beer ($2), mixed drinks (2 for $10). And they don't push anything on you. You can also rent kayaks and snorkeling equipment there.
