If you like beautiful open spaces, then this is the place for you. As someone who doesn't like big cities in general, I appreciated how lax everything was. I didn't feel like I was in a hotel, but I felt like I was in Costa Rica. I liked that not all the amenities are in one building, forcing some of...

This is a nice hotel with big suites with full kitchen. Nice swimming pool, there is a small "beach" for the guests which is very rocky and not easy to get to. Found the staff to be very helpful. There was a game room and a small gym so overall had lot of amenities.

Spent a weekend with my kids and it was really a lovely place set high above a hill overlooking the Pacific Ocean. Well appointed and spacious. Very contemporary design. Great breakfast and a cool pool as well. Close to great restaurants and Park

The photos on line looked impressive... however upon arrival part of the lobby and grounds were under construction or repair. ( this was off season when we were on vacation so I'll give the benefit of the doubt). The apartment was enormous, but a lot of wasted space... beds were VERY hard and you'd almost be better off sleeping on...

Thank you for taking the time to write a review of your stay with us. Never easy to hear from a guest whose expectations were not met. It's true that we were building out our new lobby during the offseason, but the construction has since been completed and will go a long way in terms of enhancing the guest experience....

I have delayed this review as I waited for a resolution to my issues with this hotel and with the company I booked with, Expedia. I booked the hotel on Expedia and was presented with a 3 bedroom suite, 2500 square feet, 1 king bed, 1 queen bed, and 2 twins. It was very expensive for me, and especially since...

I don't usually take the time to provide reviews, but I was so impressed with my stay that I felt compelled to help others take advantage of this special place in Manual Antonio. Fantastic rooms, unbelievably helpful staff - perhaps the most beautiful restaurant setting in the area - early morning breakfast in this outdoor paradise overlooking the Pacific was...

We just returned from a 6 day vacation in Costa Rica and had the best experience staying at The Preserve at Los Altos.

We couldn't agree more! Being able to wake up in the morning and walk one of our nature trails first thing, hard to beat the feeling of that all-natural experience. And of course, the beach nestled in the pristine rainforest, can't get much farther from the hustle and bustle of civilization than that. With all that in mind, thank you...
