This relaxed hotel, set in tropical gardens on a hillside overlooking the Pacific Ocean, lies a minute’s walk from the sands of Playa Espadilla and 2 km from Manuel Antonio National Park.

Featuring ceiling fans, the unfussy rooms and villas have minifridges and terraces; some offer ocean views. Upgraded quarters are closer to the beach and add air-conditioning, flat-screen TVs and balconies.

A breakfast buffet is complimentary. There’s also an informal restaurant and an outdoor pool.
