I don't usually take the time to provide reviews, but I was so impressed with my stay that I felt compelled to help others take advantage of this special place in Manual Antonio. Fantastic rooms, unbelievably helpful staff - perhaps the most beautiful restaurant setting in the area - early morning breakfast in this outdoor paradise overlooking the Pacific was...

We just returned from a 6 day vacation in Costa Rica and had the best experience staying at The Preserve at Los Altos. I was there with my 2 adult sisters, my 25 year old son and 16 year old daughter. The apartment style lodging was so spacious, there was plenty of room for all of us. So clean and...

We couldn't agree more! Being able to wake up in the morning and walk one of our nature trails first thing, hard to beat the feeling of that all-natural experience. And of course, the beach nestled in the pristine rainforest, can't get much farther from the hustle and bustle of civilization than that. With all that in mind, thank you...

Of all the places we stayed in CR, this is the place I would absolutely 100% make a beeline to come back to. First of all, it is simply gorgeous. The "rooms", the views, the beach. All of it top notch. I put rooms in quotes because it was a 3 bedroom 3.5 bath condo with a full kitchen, living...

We stayed at El Paseo Del Mar, owned by Los Altos. Great option for family. Good price. Made good use of kitchenette and pool. Saw plenty of wildlife. Very nice to use the facilities at Los Altos. Walk to town not bad. Good dining options. Also booked excursions through hotel. We will definitely be back.

My group (8 of us on a Yoga Retreat) stayed in Paseo Del Mar, the sister hotel to Los Altos) and were allowed to use the facilities of Los Altos. We ate breakfast there almost every day, swam in the pool, had the fresh juices from their pool bar, and used the Yoga deck that is a little walk down...

Dreaming back to one of the best spa experiences of all time at Los Altos Beach Resort & Spa!

The Preserve at Los Altos is a beautiful property located on a high hilltop above the beach. The condo is huge! It was wonderful having the very spacious living room to sit and congregate with our friends that we were traveling with. If you have more in your party than one bedroom will hold, this is the way to go!...

This property is outstanding. The rooms are incredibly spacious. The service is top notch, and our complimentary breakfasts are a perfect start to each day. The infinity pool is beautiful, and the small private beach is a great place to spend a few hours. We walked down (recommend good shoes; flip flops won't do) but opted for the free shuttle...
