Makanda by the Sea, Manuel Antonio
Outstanding5.0 / 5
Makanda is awesome (not the hotel's beach).
Makanda was simply awesome. We got upgraded to the ocean suite and the staff was very friendly. Makanda has an awesome atmosphere for couples. The food quality is great. One thing that I must mention is the hotel is under construction so the noise is sometimes annoying, but not a big deal. The beach is terrible since its full of rocks. The rest of the hotel is beautiful and the staff is very helpful. The rooms are very high tech and comfortable. I would come back to Makanda any day.

Beautiful NEW hotel but needs nicer staff at pool
The hotel is new/beautiful and I loved the main reception person - he was so helpful and courteous, but the other staff (mainly at the pool) were rude and dismissive and always out of towels and left out food, trays, etc. For the price - they should be nicer. The rooms and views were BEST in the city of Manuel Antonio though - they just need to hire new people.

Poor1.0 / 5
Very disappointing.
Very disappointing. I would never stay there again and I want to warn others of the problems. They are severely understaffed through out the hotel. The check-in was unprofessional and took too long. Getting to our room was steep and dangerous. There was construction outside our room and the lighting was poor at night. The room had no drawers for clothes and only two hangers. We stayed 4 nights and kept our clothes in a suitcase. Little to no hot water for the shower. Check-out took so long that I went to find someone else to help us leave the hotel. For over $350 per night we expected better service. Costa Rica is beautiful and I will go back to visit the country but not stay at this hotel.
