Paradise found!
My girlfriend and I stayed here for 2 nights and were blown away. We're on a trip around the world and at 7 weeks in, this is easily the nicest place we've stayed so far. In fact, this is probably one of the nicest hotels I've ever stayed in. At check in we were upgraded to a better room/view for free due to the low season. The staff were all extremely friendly and the rooms were phenomenal. Our room came with a kitchen, huge flat screen, massive king size bed and large windows facing the ocean which provided one of the most spectacular sunsets. The rooms are spaced out enough where you feel like you have plenty of privacy. The pool is unreal! It's beautifully constructed with an unobstructed view of the ocean while you sip cocktails from the bar which is located poolside. I can't say enough great things about Hotel Makanda. I would definitely stay here again. Thank you Hotel Makanda for an unforgettable stay!

Beautiful Place - Great for Couple's Getaway
My wife and I split our stay in Manuel Antonio between Makanda and Parador. Makanda was beautiful, quiet and perfect for a couple's retreat. We stayed in Villa 5. The room was great - the bed was extremely comfortable and we had a nice view of the ocean and the setting sun. Breakfast was brought to the room in the morning. We spent one of the days lounging around the infinity pool / outdoor bar area. The pool area also has a view of the ocean, and like the rest of the place, is peacefully nestled within the rainforest. We also took the path down to the beach, although if you are looking to wade into the ocean it's a little tough as this strip of beach has a rocky seafloor. Overall, the place was great and we would highly recommend it to other couples.

Outstanding5.0 / 5
The Hotel Makanda was absolutely beautiful! We loved our villa and the spectacular view. It was very peaceful and serene. Loved the fact that it had its own private, secluded beach. Each day we were able to see the white-faced monkeys playing and entertaining us! An added bonus was having our breakfast delivered to our room each morning; very tasty! We would highly recommend this hotel to Honeymooners.

Beautiful Views; Responsive Staff
Pros: Our room was private with a small porch giving a wonderful view of the ocean and sunsets. Staff was very attentive to all requests. Con: the private beach was not especially accessible (300+ steps, I believe). I would strongly advise having a car at the site, particularly if staying multiple days, as the hotel is some distance from the town and steep hills make walking a less attractive option than you might think—taxis are readily available, however.
