Odd comes to mind with Los Altos. I'll start by mentioning that the entrance was under construction, which always throws a place off. The positives: large, large accommodations, nice sunset view (we had the penthouse), and a nice pool. Everything else felt a little off, like maybe the hotel opened too early, ahead of itself. There are a lot of...

My family stayed at Los Altos few years ago. We enjoyed it so much we decided to return, and it was worth it! If anything, as the hotel is now a few years old, they have had some time to improve it. We liked it the first time we were there, but now everything seems to be a bit smoother...

I really don't have enough good things to say about Los Altos. We stayed here (my mother, sister, father and I) for 5 days last week- and it greatly exceeded our expectations. The pictures don't do it justice. The condo/apartment was HUGE- almost too much space. The pool was absolutely beautiful, with amazing service, clean amenities, and an unparalleled view....

Our suite at Los Altos was luxurious and spacious. The view was not impressive but we knew we weren't paying for a sweeping vista when we selected our suite. The hotel's restaurant served delicious meals. Breakfasts were ample and varied. There were sufficient choices on the menu allowing us to choose light lunch meals. My one complaint is that the...

The hotel didn't have our reservation - I reserved through Orbitz but had emailed with the hotel several times prior to arrival. They had a room for us but it wasn't ready until after six for check-in. The rooms are huge with full kitchen (I think they have some smaller rooms too). There are three bedrooms but as far as...

The rooms are good and really spacious, we loved it and will recommend to stay there but I...

If you are seeking the fanciest place i town this is it. The apartment style rooms are spacious... we were in 14a... very nice. A long walk down to the pool overlooking the ocean. The food here is good but the atmosphere a bit stiff... not much fun. The private beach is beautiful.

The rooms were impeccable. Beautiful view, beautiful rooms, and enough space for a lot of people. The rooms were actually gigantic, and my family was in disbelief with the size, our room had 3 bedrooms 2 and a half baths, a full kitchen, a nice lounge area, and a huge balcony.

We loved our stay at Los Altos. It is perfectly located near numerous attractions including Manuel Antonio national park, rafting, kayaking and many other fun activities. The units are quite beautiful and huge with 3 beautiful bedrooms and full kitchens. The view of the ocean is amazing and the restaurant is very good and beautifully situated with an amazing view....
