Espadilla Hotel near Manuel Antonio National Park
Nice Hotel with close proximity to Manuel Antonio Park ,and our No 1 choice though San Bada Hotel was there which was overpriced ,actually all hotels in Costa Rica are overpriced ,but is a nice property ,only thing this room lacked was a cupboard or closet to hang our stuff which was quite inconvenient leaving our stuff in our suitcases and on the bed ,which house cleaning staff had to move our clothes while making the room ,otherwise its a wonderful place , super sumptuous breakfast which the family loved and I highly recommend this hotel to guests wanting to visit Manuel Antonio National Park ,which you can see the beauty and biodiversity that our planet has and kudos to the Costa Rican government which spends to maintain this natural beauty.

This hotel is wonderful! Great service from reception to the restaurant. Location is perfect for the beach and close proximity to Manuel Antonio NP. We stayed for 3 days and loved it! The restaurant staff even sang happy birthday to me (via request from my hubby).

What we liked- staff very friendly & helpful, very clean property/rooms, good breakfast, beautiful property, good location - we could easily walk to the beach, the National Park, to the bus stop & to some restaurants/sodas. What we didn't like - not much room for our luggage/space to unpack & no towel racks/ hard to hang up clothing to dry.

Very nice, clean, quiet property. Location can't be better. 5min walk to Manuel Antonio National Park and to the public beach. They sell tickets to Manuel Antonio National Park which is super convenient. Good breakfast. AC is a bit loud, but works well. Shower strong and hot. Saw monkeys and iguanas on property. Very good restaurant for dinner with amazing guitar player. Would recommend.

Great stay!
We loved our stay here - it was very relaxing, great pool and poolside service, great breakfasts included, tasty meals in the Escondido restaurant. It was quiet with a lot of private property next to it - their own trail in the forest that you could walk. Just a one minute walk to Manuel Antonio National Park, and maybe 5 minute walk to the beach. Friendly staff at the front desk who were very helpful. Would stay here again!

Great location, walking distance from national park and beach. Great service from front desk to bar to restaurant. Pool area and pool bar are welcoming. Good deals on happy hour. Only thing is the price of the packed sandwich For lunch: USD 11 for a 10cm sandwich and bottled water
