Beautiful location. Very close to all fun stuff in Manuel Antonio

The food was amazing, chef David did an amazing job... I loved the staff, so helpful and friendly... I would highly recommend this hotel... the bathroom could be a bit awkward if you are shy.. but everything was just beautiful... again the food was out of this world!!!

We decided to spend our 35th anniversary in Costa Rica and started our journey at this hotel in Manuel Antonio. It was quite pricey but we thought our experience exceeded expectations. There are only a dozen or so rooms, and the setting is quite special with spectacular views. The staff is pleasant and accommodating, especially Geiner, Vanessa and chef Eduardo. The breakfast was ample. We had dinner at the hotel one evening - it was delicious but pretty expensive. We could easily see ourselves coming back to this hotel.

Super friendly and courteous staff; felt like at home. Room was spacious and clean. Wonderful view.

Couldn’t be more delighted with this place. Beautiful room, great staff, great food , great location !! Alexander was a delight !

Very nice small boutique hotel, I believe they have about 12 rooms. Very quiet and secluded hotel that has great views of the pacific from pretty much every location. Gives you a feeling as if you are part of the lush eco system. Free breakfast is superior to conventional continental breakfast offered in most hotels. Staff is extremely friendly and helpful, the servers Alexander and Henar are very good at making you feel at home and offers advice if you need to partake in tours ect.

Extremely helpful staff who will go above and beyond to make your stay wonderful.

We enjoyed our stay at Issimo for our honeymoon, hands down. The views are gorgeous, our fav part was the included buffet breakfast, unlimited, and served to us every morning overlooking the rain forest and ocean! It's nice and quiet, adults only which makes a huge difference when it comes to relaxation. Unfortuantely, like most hotels out there, I found the prices for lunch and dinner way too high (and I'm from NYC). That "23% service tax" to every bill is what adds up. I feel they would have more business if they lowered the prices by a few $$ cause we would of ate their everyday! The condiments and drinks in the hotel fridge are also expensive. Coming from an Italian decent, the food was delicious, even the presentation on the plate! These chefs know what they are doing. Definitely worth the trip and its easy to get a taxi ;)

Great staff. Nice massage options! The views were gorgeous from our balcony. The food was also really great quality, especially the seafood.

Stayed in the penthouse suite and it had the most amazing views of the ocean and surrounding area... This is actually exactly what to look for in a small boutique hotel or B&B. Staff was very friendly and the spa staff were also great, had a wonderful couples massage...

Great food... The folks there were always looking forward to make sure our stay was great.

We stayed in one of the Penthouse with 180 degree ocean view. We were greeted by a friendly staff with welcoming drinks. The location is exquisite and romantic for couples. it was relaxing and quite while the dining area and the pool has perfect ocean view. The rooms are large and very clean with their own pirate hot tubs.

Such an amazing place to stay. We had such a nice time there. The staff was on point, helpful, and lovely. The restaurant had such amazing food with the best ceviche we had ever had. Our suite had a lovely balcony where we watched the sunset every night. The jacuzzi in the room was perfect. And the pool was the temperature you wanted it to be after coming back from hiking and excursions. We would recommend it to anyone and will definitely be back. Oh, monkey sightings from our balcony were a joy!

The hotel in a very good location, the staff very helpful and knowledgeable

The hotel is small and comfortable. The restaurant was excellent. The staff were very responsive and helpful. If you are looking for nightlife and excitement don't go to Manuel Antonio Costa Rica. It is a place to go to kick back and forget the day to day hassles. The hotel helps you accomplish this very well.

This resort offered everything we needed. The rooms were very clean and had an amazing view. Staff was very friendly and always willing to help. It is close to all the attractions in Manuel Antonio. I highly recommend staying there.

Loved this hotel and all the staff. My husband & I stayed 3 nights at this Hotel. It was as if we were on our honeymoon again. The room was very spacious and clean. The window views were outstanding. Every morning and evening you could see monkeys visiting the balconies of all the units. Great FOOD too!!!

Very romantic hotel. The rooms were spacious and the view in the morning was amazing. Ideal for a couple.

We were greeted with smiles and warm welcomes. The staff is like a family which really enhanced the experience. Our room was very spacious which may not be the case of all rooms. Our trip was for my girlfriends birthday so I had asked if balloons could be in the room when we arrived. I was very impress whe I got there and opened the door and she was thrilled. Our only true negative was the cleanliness of the room.

We loved our room, complete with jacuzzi tub and balcony overlooking the ocean. The maids always made us cute towel creations with pretty flowers. Breakfasts were very good and staff was friendly and helpful. Being adult only, it was very peaceful and quiet. We booked a jet ski tour through the hotel which was one of our favorite activities of the trip. Would highly recommend it.
