Very professional and kind staff, they go the extra mile. They also had a live music act with two very skilled guys. This made our bar experience more complete as well. Happy to stay there, thanks guys!

We happened upon this gem in Manuel Antonio after a terrible experience with another property. Mike and Natasha were excellent hosts at this B&B. We stayed in room 11, which had a corner balcony and amazing canopy and ocean view. It was quite a climb to get there, but it was worth it to feel like we were waking up in a treehouse! Each morning, we were served a fresh and delicious breakfast and each evening we relaxed in the pool with 2 for 1 happy hour cocktails. Mike was kind enough to let us drink our craft beers we had purchased by the pool one evening. We dined at the steakhouse one night and were pleasantly surprised by the fresh wood fired pizza. During our stay, we also learned that Natasha is active with a local animal rescue group that raises funds to spay and neuter the stray animals in the area and rehome them. We would return again and again. Thank you so much for your hospitality!

My husband and I stayed at this sweet hotel with our two sons, ages 7 and 9, in the off season. It's a simple place: no tv, no phone, lots of steps to get to the rooms. But the staff bent over backward to be kind to us - from making great recommendations for what to do in town, to packing us food to take with us on our adventures, to rushing our laundry when we needed it fast. The bar/restaurant is great, the views are breathtaking (pic below was from our deck) and we spent several lovely afternoons at the pool. When I remember Costa Rica, some of my nicest memories will live here.

We stayed for two nights. Our room had a great view and we were comfortable. The food in the hotel restaurant was great (breakfast and dinner). The hotel pool leaves a lot to be desired, as does the overall customer service at the hotel. The worst part of the stay was the uphill "hike" to the nearest bus stop to go down to the beach.

Nice Pool & Restaurant. Saw Scarlet macaws fly overhead. Kept clean, though probably could do with some minor updates. Owner was nice, and a nice retreat on the road between Quepos & Manuel Antonio. We stayed in the tree house room which felt like we were in a boat in the trees.

After living in Manual Antonio Costa Rica for many years my friend suggested pizza at La Colina. I didn't realize the hotel had an attached bar with a restaurant. I ask to build a specialize pizza. Veggies to include jalapeño, zucchini, black olives, fresh cheese and double the sauce. Bamb!! Perfection!! Many thanks for the professional service and the quality fresh ingredients. Best pizza in the area. 👍

We loved our stay at Hotel la Colina and would highly recommend this comfortable and unique hotel! Our room was really cool, decor was thoughtful, definitely had a personal touch. The restaurant has great food, especially the breakfast which is real food not the often skimpy milk and cereal you get in the U.S. But most impressive was the staff who were extremely helpful at every turn from making us a last minute dinner at closing time, helping us book a tour, ordering us food for delivery, and working to find us a good deal on transportation back to San Jose. Can not say enough good things!

My boyfriend and I had a great time here - Mike is great! Whole staff is very accommodating - willing to do anything to make your stay great! Nice location to the beach and other activities. I can't say enough great things. Clean, friendly staff, really great to stay. Mike gave us lots of tips to make the most of our trip on a budget and we wish we could've stayed longer. Highly recommended and reasonably priced!

Great location close to the national park, incredible views, abundant wildlife, tasty food and a friendly staff. Mike, Natasha and the entire staff were pleasant and helpful during our stay. Rooms are exactly as described - if you require TV, high speed internet and entertainment this may not be the place for you. If you want to relax, eat some great gallo pinto and wood fired pizzas, and enjoy the the beauty of the Costa Rican hillside, we highly recommend staying at La Colina. Twenty years of experience here and no disappointments yet.

The hotel is nice, especially the oceanview rooms gives you great view to the Ocean. The rooms need some uplifting, but they are spacy. The only problem is the distance to the beach and the busy street with a lot of noise.
