We stayed 4 nights at this hotel. The hotel is nicely located just by the Espadilla beach and it has direct access to it. There are lots of animals wandering around the hotel gardens including agoutis, iguanas and capuchin monkeys. We stayed on a standard beachfront room, which was clean, the bed was really comfortable and had a hammock on the balcony. We've had some issues with the mosquito net but this was solved during our stay. We recommend the beach front rooms as the other rooms are next to the main road and not as quiet. Also, one thing we noticed during our trip in Costa Rica, and this hotel was no exception, is that it is better to pay for a superior room if you are looking for better overall conditions, like bathroom and window maintenance. One example is that most superior rooms have a proper glass window in the bathroom whilst other rooms only have a net. The breakfast and other meals we had at the hotel bar were very good. The bar staff were friendly and there is also bar service at the beach. Juan Carlos was working at the bar on many occasions during our stay. He was a very nice and engaging person. He recommended some hikes and was very knowledgeable on the local fauna. Overall our experience was really good and the location was exceptional, so definitely recommended!

Karahe is a great hotel with all necessities to spend some time on the beach on the Manuel Antonio/Quepos location. Breakfast included with monkeys around on the trees, walking distance to the beach and beautiful nature everywhere. A/C, hot showers, very comfortable beds.

Quepos is a shabby beach town, overbuilt, very touristy. Our hotel room was clean, but needed an update. But the bed and shower were good. The main attraction of the hotel is the beach front, a rarity in Quepos. The hotel provides chairs and beach towels, and large trees offer shade. Vendors sell crafts, but they are polite and unaggressive. A beautiful beach for morning walks. The gardens are also pleasant. Tiny swimming pool. Adequate buffet breakfast in the open-air hotel restaurant. Watch out for the monkeys! The hotel is on a busy road, so walking requires care and attention.

The location is beautiful and central. What was disappointing was my bed was full of bed bugs located in the wicker headboard. I had about ten bugs on me the moment I turned off the lights. What is more disappointing was how management handled the situation. When we approached management in the morning (there is no way to contact management at night), we were told she was not here and that we would be notified by email. We were emailed that sheets are washed daily (which I believe) and that we probably got bites from ”coloradillas”. I have pictures of my bites, as well as, the bugs and we were still dismissed. I had left my room that night because of the nest. If you stay there, please look for mattresses removed from rooms and located outside of the building (something that we ignored) and prepare to have the bed bugs bite. Management will not take any accountability.

With reference to your note about bedbugs, I would like to inform you that we do not have bed bugs in our beds. We change our sheets everyday. In the tropics there is always a misunderstanding regarding bed bugs. When people make tours to the National Park or walk over grass, there are very small bugs that get into your skin that we call “coloradillas” and they make you itch very badly and the only way to get rid of them is by rubbing alcohol. I think that that could be the case or else itching from mosquitos. In any case you mention that you have pictures of bedbugs, I would like to see them. Sincerely yours, Cecilia Lutz Hotel Karahe

One of the few hotels on the beach between all the surfing camps. Beautiful views, outdoor dining and bar area. Nice pool. Lots of white-faced monkeys on the property. Chairs and tables supplied for the beach and bar service. Some rooms have hammocks on the verandas. Great location and great surfing and surf lessons. Good waves for body surfing, and nice beach sand. SPA services available.
