My husband and I stayed here April 8-10. I want to thank the man working at the front desk. He was extremely friendly and accommodating at helping us with taxis for our tours, an early breakfast, and setting up a person to give us a covid test which we needed before our trip back to the USA. This hotel is not particularly fancy but it was charming, clean, had a good breakfast, and the location was amazing! Walking distance of the beach, a lot of good places to eat, National park hiking tours, and easy to get taxis to nearby areas. We got really lucky and saw a wild sloth on our walk back to the hotel from the beach one night! Thank you for a wonderful stay! Pura vida <3

We appreciate your comment, certainly Villabosque hotel has the perfect location just a few steps from the wonderful Manuel Antonio National Park. It is a boutique style hotel where our clients can feel at ease and rest between the magnificent combination of jungle and beach.

I found Hotel Villabosque the best bang for the buck with their excellent staff , restaurant and swimming pool also Within walking distance of the beach and the center of activities. In particular, I found Hellen Carballo who is one of the Managing staff members extremely helpful and went out of her way to make my visit most enjoyable. Included in the price, is a most enjoyable full breakfast from their most excellent Restaurant. I will always for sure stay at the Villabosque whenever I am in Manuel Antonio.

Hotel is a very short walk to Manuel Antonio National Park. The room itself was very, very small. There were 3 of us and it was hard for more than one person to move around in the room at one time. Our air conditioner was not working when we arrived, it was fixed within an hour or so. Hotel breakfast is not included in the price of the room and it is expensive (around $15). We had a great $5 breakfast at Restaurant Hostel Costa Linda, a five minute walk from the hotel.

We are here for new year. Not a success. A set meal with no choices which was on the most part inedible and I’m not particularly fussy but it was a very strange combo and poorly prepared. If you don’t eat fish then tough luck A family party on site seems to be the priority of the day and a sense of the guests experience bring of secondary concern. We are sitting in our room listening to a private party literally outside our window live music and all. Fine for new year but not open to the guests and very loud. The hotel should have closed for new year. Not family friendly
