Makanda by the Sea: "One of Costa Rica's Romantic Hotels" Costa Rica Hotel Tip by mmwoodard

Costa Rica Hotels: 495 reviews and 694 photos

This was the nicest hotels we have ever stayed in. Located on the Pacific side of Costa Rica between Quepos and Manuel Antonio. This is an adult resort with 20 different villas you can stay in. The villas are on stilts so that you are halfway up the trees in the rainforest and the Pacific ocean is about .10 mile away from your back porch! The villa are situated so that you feel as you are the only ones there.

Unique Qualities: The pool for this resort is very cool! It is nestled in the Rain Forest and has the Pacfic Ocean as the back drop. As stated above the villas are half way up the trees. One morning we ate breakfast on our back porch and a troop of monkeys came by and visited us. They were less than 20 feet away! Very neat experience! The staff and service are awesome! When we go back to Costa Rica we will definately come back to Makanda!!!!
