Pleasant days in Manuel Antonio
The hotel is a 3.5 stars, not a 4.5 as advertised. The check-in was very quick, the room was ready even though we arrived earlier. The entire hotel could use some reno and scrubbing. The room was outdated, the linens didn't have the fresh feeling even though i could tell they were clean, the shower could use a really good scrub, and the bathroom door made terrible noise. However, the ocean view was amazing and it made up for the other inconveniences.
The hotel is very conveniently located: 5 min drive to the main beach and Manuel Antonio National Park, 5 min driving to the secluded Playa Biesanz, and walking distance to great restaurants (Emilio's Cafe, Cafe Milagro, Vila Nicollas, etc).
