This is a great spot for late night. There is a good mix of locals and tourists. Food we had wasn't great, but the drinks are delicious. Also, awesome bartenders, super friendly and very inviting. They have a ladies night where vodka and rum drinks are free

Definitely a different type of hotel. Each room is an air conditioned bungalow set in the jungle hillside. Very nice covered balcony to sit on and look for wildlife or relax. Room was large and bathroom adequate. Has a small fridge, microwave, and safe. Beds are quite hard and pillows hard and lumpy....the main reason I gave 4 stars. Staff...

For serious foodies, there are not that many places in Manuel Antonio which are likely to rock your world. Byblos's pizza, on the other hand, is not something to miss. I ordered the chicken pesto, and it came on a perfectly cooked thin crust, with the required chicken and pesto, but also fresh tomatoes, great slivers of vidalia onions, and...

This hotel is unique in that each house is like a tree house. The service was excellent and breakfast was served to you in the dining area. There were monkeys and other animals that were close to you as you swam in their pool.The only negative is there is a casino attached to this hotel and it can be noisy...

We went for dinner. The food was good and reasonably priced. The watermelon juice did not disappoint! The restaurant is in front of the hotel. They don't have many tables. We wished we had found it sooner.

Dear edandsarahmae02, Thank you for your comments and particularly about Elias in the Billfish. It’s good to hear from a fellow Texan. I’ll tell Elias hello. We’re in the middle of exterior renovations and expect that you will be even happier with the property when you get back. Until then… Pura Vida! Davis Henley, Managing Partner

I went to Byblos on Monday after hearing about ladies night. It's a chill bar with music, foosball tables, and pool. There is also a casino in the back room. It was a really fun night.

Loved it here! We stayed in a cute bungalow and the staff was great (victor was nice and also helped us look for the sloth every morning). We saw white faced monkeys and howler monkeys as well as a sloth all while eating and hanging out around the pool.
