    OK. Air conditioning is a huge plus

    The good reason to visit Manatus is the air conditioning in the rooms, which no other hotel has in Tortugero. Other than that- this is a very expansive 3 star hotel. Food is very basic. Service is good though, like in most places in Costa RIca.

    Must-do visit to Costa Rica

    Great place, amazing environment, included tours were very special led by Luis and our driver Danny. We saw crocodiles, all 3 species of monkeys, sloths, iguanas, many types of birds, bats etc. Food was plenty, but average, otherwise, I could not recommend this place enough. Even the kids loved it!

    Great staff, great place.

    We had a great stay. All of the staff were fantastic. Food excellent. Tours with Luis and captain Danny were a once in a lifetime experience. We still don't know how they can spot some of the animals. Sloths, monkeys, Jesus Christ lizards, caimans, toucans, green herons, little blue herons, tiger herons, bats, oropendola. We felt like we were the only people in the resort, with everyone catering to our every wish. It is a small exclusive resort in a most remote place. Well worth the money. It's an adventure just getting there.

    Decent hotel

    This is a very good standard hotel for what part of the world you are in. You are in the middle of a rainforest with little to no resources. The air in the room fails between 1 and 3. Expected. The transportation to and from the public boat was spotty at best. The Food is decent, I only got sick once which is pretty good for my stomach. All that said you don't come here for the hotel of the food or service. It's all about the nature. This is as good as it gets... Would I stay here again, probably not just for the lack of communication with the manager. He knew little to no English and could not address issues or even when we wanted an upgrade on a tour.

    Manatus Hotel in tortuguerro

    We purchase a package for 2 nights and 3 days, which included transportation from SanJose. They refused to pick us up from the hotel in Alajueha which is 5 km from the the airport, so we had to take a taxi to another hotel, which was a nuisance at 5 am. Overall it is the best hotel in the area, the staff is amazing and goes out of their way to please you. Food is average. Bed is not supercomfortable , but adequate.We had a great time! Bring cash with use, they don't have ATMs.

    Kleine Oase inmitten der Natur

    Es werden schöne Touren mit dem Boot auf den Wasserwegen angeboten. An- und Abreise organisiert man besser selbst, da die Hotelpreise deutlich überhöht sind.

    Deben mejorar

    Es ilogico lo que sucede con el precio del traslado. El hotel cobra usd 75 por persona por traslado regular en bus de san jose a la pavona ( aproximadamente 3 hs e incluye desayuno o almuerzo) y traslado en lancha de la pavona al hotel. Si quieres solo tomar la parte del traslado en lancha ( sin el bus y sin almuerzo o desayuno) tambien te piden usd 75 por persona. Las camas crujen y los cochones no son suficientemente buenos La comida buena y el personal del comedor excelente No esta al nivel de un hotel todo incluido por el que se paga 400 dolares la habitacion por noche
