Manuel Antonio stay
Beautiful views. The hotel is made of shipping containers (truck trailers), but modern and nice! Have to walk up a ways to hotel from beach.

Worth the hike
It’s quite the hike up the hill to the hotel rooms, and they do have golf carts willing to take you - but you could get your workout for the day! The rooms are shipping containers so small but clean. The pool is very nice with a beautiful view! The staff was very friendly & the breakfast is pretty good.

Concept done well
I have always heard about shipping containers being repurposed for hotels and have always wanted to try it. This hotel has done a good job. Even though the hotel is set up on a hill, they make sure the residents are able to access the rooms easily with the golf buggies. Upon walking into the rooms, the only indication that you are in a shipping container is the shape of the room. They have been very well set up and decorated and the view of the ocean, especially at sunset was worth it. The only complaint was the noise in the morning. Sound proofing is something they have forgotten about
