My husband and I stayed here for several days a year ago. We loved the location, the staff, the hotel. It really was a no-brainer in choosing a place to stay near the beach and park. Easy to catch a bus if you want to...More

Yes, I think so, its a longer walk though...maybe a couple of miles if you go by the road/streets. It might be shorter if you are able to cut through from the public beach but I don't know if that is possible. The public beach is only 5 minutes from this hotel and the Manuel Antonio beaches are also quite close (20 min walk maybe if you go straight to the beach and aren't distracted by all of the wildlife in the park)but you have to enter through the park and pay the $16 entrance fee... But it is worth the fee, they are beautiful and calmer than the public beach because they are more sheltered.
There is no hot tub or jacuzzi here, but it's too hot and humid here in my opinion to want one. There is a jet in the pool on one side which is nice. The pool is nice and refreshing but the water is fairly warm, just cold... More
There is no hot tub or jacuzzi here, but it's too hot and humid here in my opinion to want one. There is a jet in the pool on one side which is nice. The pool is nice and refreshing but the water is fairly warm, just cold enough to provide excellent relief from the heat. There are even bar stools built into the pool that let you have food or beverages on a counter near the bar.
