"Nice staff and place with fun pool near wildlife"
I went to this hotel by myself but definitely can see how it can be considered romantic. I wish I would have stayed longer. I was the only guest during my stay and had great service. The room is basic but it has private air conditioning. The owner offered to put me in the room furthest from the busy road. I went for a swim in their amazing pool. The […] hot tub was not hot but I was not disappointed. Breakfast was nice and included. It is not in front of the ocean as google maps suggests, but is a short 10 minute walk. I would definitely stay here again. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review

"There was a beautiful pool area."
It's a few steps to the bus stop going to Manuel AntonioGenuine Expedia guest review
I stayed here for three nights, and as it was low season, I was sometimes the only person there. Staff was friendly and helpful when they could be, but could have been more knowledgeable and available at times. The pool is beautiful and well-kept, and there's a nice breakfast in the morning. The public computer was broken, but they let me check my email […] on the laptop behind reception. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"Not what we expected"
We were looking for a hotel close to Manuel Antonio Park and Quepos, and this looked nice online. The room was fairly stark, however, and dated. Cleanliness was so-so, and initially it did not appear to have AC, though we found there was a unit in the closet(!). The bathroom was adequate, except there were 3 windows, and 2 of them were open screen. […] The bed was a low platform bed, very firm, and the television a small CRT type, but the reception was so bad it was academic. There is avery nice garden area and the pool was ok, clean, but rapidly losing tiles. The people (especially Christina) were very cordial and helpful, though, and the food was very good. Not a bad experience, really, and we were not expecting luxury conditions, but it felt a little shabby and down at the heels. The surrounding area seemed a little gritty, even a bit frightening, but proved safe when all was said and done. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
We had a nightmare experience with our flight into C.R. due to recent bad weather. Instead of arriving at the hotel at 5:00 pm as scheduled, we arrived at 2:00am the following morning. We called ahead to inform the hotel of our delay and they indicated that it was "no problem." because they were a 24 hour hotel. When we arrived, the hotel was dark, […] however there were 2 staff and 1 security guard present. All were very pleasant and escorted us to our room. It was very clean and comfortable. The landscape is beautiful and the breakfast is outstanding. An excellent value for the price Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"Great Stop Point"
We were on our way to Osa and needed a place to stay. There could not have been a better place. Management accommodated our need in every way. On top to that we met other travelers who were on their way and enjoyed interacting with them.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"If all you want is quiet this is the place to go."
I would recommend this hotel to someone who wants a very quiet place to stay and who didn't care about comfort. The building is getting run down. Our toilet was broken and my husband repaired it during the night as it just kept running. The staff was very pleasant but not all that helpful with questions about places to eat or the area in general. There […] is no secure parking. The manager had us drive our car onto the grounds on a driveway that was too small to go through even with out small car. We ended up having to back down the driveway. It was evident that others had tried to drive through and failed....a large piece of concrete was missing off the wall. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"Worth checking out!"
Good location, friendly staff and clean rooms. Some issues with the air conditioner which was not working properly and limited parking space. Overall, not a bad place with a nice swimming pool. You might even get to see the Capuchin monkeys, squirrels or some colourful birds.Genuine Expedia guest review
We stayed two nights at the Villa which was very nice. The room was clean and the staff friendly. We stayed in a room across from the pool, Room 1, which had a nice little terrace where we had coffee in the morning. I did fall asleep in the hammock as well that was out front of our room. The grounds are lovely and it's close to town but not noisy. The […] pool is small, very cold and not that clean! I didn't swim in it. We had breakfast there in the morning, it was included and it was fresh, good food. We did not eat lunch or dinner there. I would recommend this hotel for a short stay or if you are looking to be close to town and not hear the noise. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review

Prima service en ontbijt . Vriendelijk personeel.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"gut. freundlich. einfach"
Pkw kann vor dem Haus abgestellt werden.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
Bonito y limpio lugar, la ubicación es perfecta puesto que no es en el centro de Quepos y es batiente silenciosa por la noche. El dueño del lugar es muy amable y te puede recomendar lugares para comer y en general es muy buena persona. Lo único que puede mejorar es tal vez mejores pantallas de televisión (la que teníamos era de 15 pulgadas) el aire […] acondicionado no servía y el alcance del Wi-Fi. Por lo demás está bien.

"Good Hotel, fair price "
03/18/15 Peter M
Our stay there was absolutely ok...rooms are well equipped, good facilities and nice + zealous staff and owners. Bathrooms could be refurbished at one point but it's not like a total disaster. Against other point of views here we found the breakfast great...different everyday and a good variety of cold and warm food.
"Very nice service - renovation needed"
01/31/15 Imke B
The service and the staff is very nice and helpful. They provide good advices and really try to help on every request. Unfortunately the rooms need a renovation. They smell a bit and are less charming than the other accommodations we booked for the same price.
"Shame on the owner"
01/28/15 Maureen O
Pity about the room, cheap and tacky bedding, towel and rugs, cheap furniture, old small tv, no Wifi in the room, no hot water in basin. Shame on the owner because the place is beautiful and conveniently located. The cost of US $110 per night is not cheap, please spend some money updating the rooms.
"Nice clean rooms"
12/24/14 Shiralot Israel
The hotel is nice and clean. The Pool is beautiful. The owner and team were very very helpful, with all the reservations we wanted to do. breakfast is nice too. Easy access to the "town" or the bus to Manuel Antonio,. (literally a minute away). there was a small problem with ants and hot water but we found that through out our whole trip in Costa Rica. Worth the money, and as I said, service is outstanding!. They really care.
12/04/14 James K Phoenix, Arizona
It's a little bit hidden on a side street right where the town ends (Quepos) and Manuel Antonio begins. Easy walking distance to town, and right near a bus stop that takes you all the way to Manuel Antonio. The rooms are good value for what you pay but not luxurious.

This hotel is located on the edge op Quepos, 2 minute walk into town. It is an oasis of rest with a nice pool area and decent size rooms. The rooms are well kept, cool and clean. The garden is lovely. You get an excellent breakfast buffet well worth the price. The host is very accomodating and makes sure you have everything you want. He is also very willing to assist you in organising any tour or activity you want, he will make it happen! Good location since busstop to Manuel Antonio national park is in front of the hotel, bus takes you for 300 colon to the entrance in 20 minutes (difficult parking so I would advise taking the bus that passes every 30 minutes!) Excellent place to escape ugly Quepos and visit the park and do some tours!
"Can't wait to go back!"
Wolfgang and his wife Ursula, the owners of this property, we're outstanding. Every need or request we made was not only met, but, exceeded our expectations. The location of their hotel was perfect. Quepos, is a wonderful place, but, the Villa Romantica and our gracious hosts, is what made our trip one we will never forget.
"Very disappointing, wouldn't recommend to a friend"
03/03/14 Sasha F Chicago, Illinois
We stayed in this hotel for 2 awful days. The staff is so indifferent to their customers, it feels like they think here is your room, pay and get out. No recommendations, no talking, they treat you like you are not welcome there at all. We got a good deal on Booking.com, for $65 a night, and it turned out that this good deal is the worst deal we ever had, in 6 years we have been traveling together. The german guy at the front desk kept repeating that we got the room for cheap, so we wont get the service they usually have. (The difference in price is $15 a night, seriously). No breakfast(which is fine with us), bad attitude, they lost our laundry, couldn't find it for half a day. And when they found it, right in front of me, the german guy started looking at our underwear, smiling and taking one after another. It seemed that the german guy did everything to show that we are not that good for him. Oh, and the room... Its another story. The noise is very loud, people partying the whole night, and wake up at 6am, moving chairs, plates, clinking glasses. The breakfast area is right behind your door, people can hear you singing in the shower. The room reminds you of a dungeon, dark, smelly, and dump. It doesn't look like pictures at all, guys. I think they were taken 10 years ago. Also, every time we passed the reception desk we saw angry people, waiting for assistance, so, Im assuming we are not the only ones who didnt like the staff's behavior. They triple park cars in the gate area and then cant find whose cars were whose. Knocking at every door, asking. I am 100% sure that if this hotel was in the US, it wouldnt stay in business for longer then 2 months. I dont recommend anyone to come here.
"Nice pool, location"
02/26/14 Tomas M San Ramon, Costa Rica
Nice pool, great location if you want to go to Quepos--you can walk into town. If you want to go to the beach it is a 50 cent bus ride, about 20 minutes, lots of stops, or $5 and 5 minute cab ride. Good BK, included when I stayed there maybe 5 years ago. My room was way outdated, like 20 years outdated, and I visited a friend there in May 2013 and her room was similarly outdated. Maybe they have remodeled since? Hopefully. If the beach is going to be your thing, stay in Manuel Antonio. If Quepos is your thing (can't imagine why other then you are there to fish--the marina is 5 minutes away by cab) then this is an option, but view the rooms first. No need to make a reservation, they are never full or very crowded--from May to Dec near empty. The side street it is on is a shortcut into town so I pass by there alot. I saw the review on smoking. This place is Euro owned and guests are mostly Euro's. Euro's love their smokes. Negotiate the price, pay in cash, should get it for no more then $60 including the whopping 18% CR screw the gringo tax. I stayed second floor on the far end so it was quiet. That helps the rating some. Quiet is a premium in Quepos.
"Beautiful, but for smokers"
02/18/14 NorthMan07 Québec
Nice place with a lot of matures trees. Very good breakfest. We did appreciate the nice pool. Good refreschment. Be advise that the rule of non smoking around the installation and pool is not respected and there are mamy smokers.
