Hotel Costa Verde

Manuel Antonio

Overall Rating
Hotel Review

Its very funky and rustic, lots of wildlife and monkeys, good options for restaurants, pools and beaches

Tips for future travelers

Its not a typical 4 star hotel, the service levels are lower than what you would expect, its very casual and slightly run down. Also long walks to beaches, restaurants and town etc.

Hi Dan,

Thank you very much for your comments and feedback about the trip that we organized for you in our country. I am glad to hear that you enjoyed the activities that we arranged for you, no much the night walk in Manuel Antonio but you still have the chance to experience the amazing wildlife at the park.

We hope to have the opportunity to welcome you again in the future on a new adventure.

Best,
Randall
