Hotel Vela Bar - Adults Only, Manuel Antonio
Wonderful locale!
The hotel was clean and modern. Right near Manuel Antonio so you could walk there, which was very convenient. The free breakfast was delish. And you could also walk to the main beach. Great stay!

Loved this place.
This hotel is great. From it's location close to Manuel Antonio Park to the beach, it's perfect. The staff is friendly and knowledgeable. This place is CLEAN...I mean REALLY CLEAN. The breakfast was really good. Not just your basic continental.

Hotel Vela Bar - Adults Only, Manuel Antonio
Amazing property and location!
The hotel and property were extremely clean and beautiful. The staff was very helpful, even finding my daughter's wallet when she left it by the pool and quickly returning it to us! The breakfast was good and the hotel is a short walk from the beach and the national park. Also a quick taxi ride will get you to amazing restaurants, we even walked to lunch one day. Some restaurants are only a five minute walk, but the better ones are up the hill. My only complaint would be water pressure in the bathroom, but that seemed to be a problem all over Costa Rica, not just at this hotel. I would definitely come back!

Convenient quiet hotel
Conveniently located close to the entrance of the Manuel Antonio Nat. Park, the hotel is quiet, feeling secluded yet very centrally located. Rooms and bathrooms recently remodeled, modern. Room relatively small, but functional . Staff very friendly and helpful. Several good restaurants in walking distance or near by by car. Very good breakfast included.
