3rd Time Not The Charm
My third trip to this hotel. I go back because of the wonderful view, the beautiful beach and town close by and the great restaurant that serves wonderful food and the best tres leches on the beach. This will be my last trip. View's still the same. Beach is still delightful. Restaurant blows. Tres leches? Are you kidding? All they could muster up was a brownie, no ice cream, to stick a candle for my girl's birthday. After planning this "big" surprise, an hour later it had not been served. After the restaurant called even later I asked for room service. They wanted to be paid right then, even though I'd left a card, had a wristband on and 2 slips in my wallet for something at the restaurant. When I got upset they sent a manager and waiter up to collect. Exasperated I handed them cash. Later looking at the bill their was a $10 deposit for the little plate and fork. A DEPOSIT. $10 for a 50 cent plate. It got no better at breakfast. Wrong breakfast pass... And who decided you could call a cheap hotdog sausage and serve for breakfast? If you go... dont go for the restaurant. Not sure what happened from my first 2 visits.

Loved this place!!!
It’s true, it’s on a pretty steep hill & there are no elevators. But generally, this place is amazing for the money. The location is fabulous- maybe 200 yards to the public beach & a few steps away from Manuel Antonio Park. The staff was WONDERFUL!! Front desk gentleman & lady bartender were like friends! The views from the rooms are outstanding! No big frills, but great value!!
