8.4.Very good.
  • 2.0.Poor

    Once upon a time this hotel was very good but nowadays it is rundown and outdated. Pretty dirty and unsanitary, no staff on premises. The front desk clerk was trying hard to accommodate our needs but the hotel is nothing as shown in website pictures. I do not recommend to stay there. Overall Manual Antonio is not somewhere i would stay again. Area around the hotel and park where like slums.

  • 6.0.Good

    Hotel San Bada is an older hotel whose glory days appear to be in the past. While still a decent place, when comparing to the other hotels we stayed in around Costa Rica, it was expensive for you get. The reception staff appear bored and not particularly helpful, but all the restaurant staff were great. I tried to book a massage in the “spa” but when I arrived at the allotted time, no one was there, the place was locked up! The reception staff told me the therapists car had broken down and she would take some time to arrive - but I didn’t trust that this would actually happen (due to other previous issues) so I just cancelled and went to one of the other lovely spas in the area. Overall a very mediocre stay.

    the wifi was terrible terrible terrible which affected the tv and the food was subpar the service was beyond wonderful and the room was great plus staying in a rear room the monkeys came to our room/patio in the morning which was such an amazing experience for me and my kids. Also they have a great kiddie pool, I wasnt able to do the roof top adult pool bc of the kids but even though the wifi was an issue it was a great experience. Plus the location near to the beach and Manuel Antonio Park ENTRANCE right there is great

    El hotel esta super bien ubicado justo en la entrada al parque manuel Antonio y a 2 min caminado de la playa publica me parece no hay otro con mejor ubicacion. El servicio es bueno, las habitaciones amplias y limpias. Recomendado.

    It is the middle of Covid 19, I live in the Central Valley, so I came to support Manuel Antonio area. First time staying at the San Bada. Very nice, very few guest because of the virus, but hotel was clean, staff was friendly. Jefferson had my coffee ready for me early in the morning, as he promised. Love the pool. Very close to beach and Manuel Antonio Park! I’ll be back!

    great location, room not as nice as I expected

    Fantastic location. Pool was beautiful and well maintained. Staff friendly. Room was less than expected for the price. Hair dryer didn’t work, coffee pot didn’t work and the toilet was loose enough you had to very carefully sit down on it.

    Wonderful staff- made an extra effort to know us & help with any questions. Beautiful property with room & balcony facing a beautiful beach. The sound of surf lulled us to sleep. Awesome pool, literally steps from Manuel Antonio Park & small shopping, restaurant street area.
