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.

We had a great honeymoon. The view from the room was beautiful. The staff was very friendly and accommodating. The beach was a short walk from the hotel and all the visits from the monkeys and other wildlife were great.

Loved everything about this spot. Good staff, nice view. Food was ok but the kitchrn is really small

This hotel was just great. My wife and I stayed at Issimo for 4 nights, and we wished we could stay longer. There are only 12 suites at the hotel, and it's only for adults, so it was small enough to have a personal, imtimate stay; Yet, the restaurant was excellent, and the service was top-shelf. We had a wonderful stay!

This hotel is absolutely beautiful! The rooms are amazing, the food is very good, they have a happy hour every day. The view is gorgeous from the rooms and the pool area. We saw a sloth right outside of our room from the balcony just hanging out in the tree. Monkeys come up and play around every morning right up to the room balconies.You get what you pay for here, worth the cost. The rooms are very romantic. Only downside is the location itself, the view is great, a 10 minute walk to the beach, but.. you have to hike up and down a giant steep hill ( approx. 15 mins) to get the main strip or cab/drive it, and the cab drivers like to charge you way too much. Overall, awesome resort, the staff is very helpful and friendly. If your up for it to the ZIP LINE CANOPY TOUR :)

WOW.. The people are great... the hotel is clean quiet and relaxing. The neighborhood monkeys come right up to visit you on the patios... This is an "adults" only place.. so it can be enjoyed by the adults. They do not allow people to just wander the hotel as it has a gated entrance. IF you want solitude or just to spend special time with a special person... this is a place to go. The staff helped us every time we had an inquiry. It was our Anniversary while we visited, and they set up a table full of flower blossoms and candles for us to have dinner at in celebration... WONDERFUL TOUCH! They will help you arrange transportation to and from night spots if you just ask at the desk. They ordered us a PIZZA when we just felt like having that one night.

We spent one week at Issimo and it was amazing, perfect location directly in the jungle, monkeys around..the room (108) was perfect!!

The penthouse room we stayed in had animal droppings inside of the room. the animal was still trapped inside the wood paneling in the ceiling - we could hear it and saw it moving around. Our only option was to be downgraded two levels to a smaller room with no ocean view. we were barely compensated for the inconvenience. looking back, I wish we had cancelled and gone next door to Pacifio Souss. The Junior suite claims to be ocean view on the website but is really jungle only.
