My new husband and I enjoyed our honeymoon at this hotel in July and we are still talking about it. What a wonderful spot we found. The property only had around 10 rooms, its own beach, a great poolside restaurant and talk about monkeys!! We woke up everyday and went to bed each night with them playing around our villa. We loved the staff, they became like family to us. Hola to Leo, Melissa, Christopher, Danilo and Maria!! Definitely take their suggestions and do the canopy tour, snorkeling, national park and the whitewater rafting. We had a blast on all of them. We can't wait to come back to Costa Rica, we could not have picked a better spot to celebrate our honeymoon!

Unique Quality: The privacy and no kids policy is wonderful!

Directions: We followed the road towards the national park and turned off at the sign by Barba Roja Restaurant.

We stayed at Hotel Makanda for our honeymoon and loved it. The rooms are huge and elegant with large terraces where we hung out on the hammock. Loved that. Lots of monkeys around the pool and property, so we spent alot of time there. Their beach is not great, too rocky, but again we saw monkeys there so it was worth going to. Our favorite part was the food at their Sunset Restaurant....amazing. I still think about the fresh fish quesadilla...delicious. Definitely do the canopy Zipline tour, whitewater rafting and the park hike. We did and all of them were a blast! We hope to go back some day soon.

Unique Quality: Very private, no kids!

Directions: ON the way to the National Park

Adults Only Paradise in Manuel Antonio

We took a long overdue getaway and spent some fantastic time at this hotel. Great ocean views and monkeys and other animals everywhere. Breakfast served to our room each morning was definitely a bonus, we really liked that. The staff was very friendly, but not overly so. We enjoyed sunset cocktails each evening by the pool, the perfect romantic setting.

Unique Quality: The views at Hotel Makanda are to die for, but the monkeys all over really seal the deal. We liked that an was an easy walk to some great restaurants and Sports Bars. Try Hotel Byblos for sports and tropical dance lessons at night, and the best pizza. We like Agua Azul for lunch each day, the best food and great views. Sushi at Barba Roja restaurant was memorable too.

Directions: Main road to park, turn right at Cafe Milagro and go about 2 miles following the signs.

Unsurpassed in the Manuel Antonio area!

This hotel was absolutely tops during our recent vacation. The adults only atmosphere is exactly what the doctor ordered. Great food, staff, ocean views, huge rooms and the location was perfect. We checked out a few of the other luxury hotels in the area in case we wanted to stay somewhere else on our next visit, but nothing even came close to this wonderful property. We can´t wait to come back to Costa Rica again, we loved it!!

Unique Quality: Adults Only. Great Animal watching. Hammock on terrace to watch ocean views and sunsets. Full kitchens in room. Friendly staff.

Directions: On the turnoff for parador hotel
