Perfect for families
Hotel has a great atmosphere for families, with matching amenities. A wonderful kid pool with a slide and a friendly pool bar where they can swim up and request fruit smoothies plus lots of shaded areas for parents to read or also join in the water fun. Two movies a night cater to families as well, and the restaurants are both appropriate for all ages. The breakfast buffet is large and has everything you can imagine, local food as well as the staples of many families (pancakes, waffles, omlettes, eggs etc). The rooms are comfortable, a favorite thing is the spigot outside the rooms to wash sand from the feet and or clothes before heading inside, and the wonderful balconies that have a gorgeous view of the sunset and Manuel Antonio beach. One of the most beautiful beaches in the world is in fact close, about a 0.5mile walk, drive, or best of all- the hotel has shuttles that run continuously all day. STaff is friendly and always willing to help. My only minor complaint- the pillows are kind of lumpy and not particularly comfy, in my opinion.
