We had a lovely stay here in Manuel Antonio. The hotel is in a beautiful location. The rooms are a very high standard and the facilities are great.
The beach was untouched and beautiful for that however, once down there we weren’t able to get drinks/food so you couldn’t spend too long there. A neighboring g restaurant was selling food and drink but you obviously needed cash for that. It would have been good for the hotel to have this set up too or at least inform you before you go down there that you’d need cash.
Magical hotel in the rainforest, teaming with wildlife. We saw monkeys at sunset and in the morning on our balcony. Most of the staff were very friendly and helpful (particularly Juan Carlos on reception). It is very expensive, but good for a treat. We appreciated the fizz to congratulate us on our honeymoon.
Beware Luxury Suite with pool! For 500 USD+ we assumed this was private (and in the pictures it appeared so) but it was in fact shared. Luckily for us the other room was not booked. Also, construction work started at 7am. I appreciate they need to do building work but I suggest 9am start would be more appropriate. Despite this I would still definitely recommend this hotel.
Great Hotel but beware it is built into side of cliff so walking to room, reception, restaurant, pool, spa is on path with extremely steep incline.
Really enjoyed my stay
Beautiful views. The pool was amazing. Everyone was very helpful and pleasant. There were many great restaurants nearby. The marina was great for food
Makanda by The Sea Hotel is a boutique hotel located in Manuel Antonio, one of Costa Rica's most popular tourist destinations. The rooms of this hotel are carefully weaved in with the existing rainforest, creating an ambiance that is unmatched. Makanda is situated 300 feet above the ocean, giving occupants a spectacular view of the sea, especially during sunset.
While Makanda may feel as if it is located in a remote jungle, it offers guests all the amenities and comforts they would want from a luxury hotel. Visitors will find two infinity pools that overlook the ocean, an oversized jacuzzi, spa, an upscale restaurant and Makanda's own private beach. There are also multiple lounges and stylish open bars as well.
Hotel Makanda is a haven for nature lovers. This hotel is located in the heart of one of the most biologically rich places in South America. Just outside guests' windows, they will find amazing wildlife like toucans, sloths, monkeys, and more. Guests can even book excursions into the jungle to get a look at these amazing creatures even closer up.
The hotel has several different sized rooms depending on what guests are looking for. The Honeymoon Suite is custom tailored for guests coming to celebrate their wedding while the Luxury Villa can accommodate up to six guests, contains two separate floors with an integrated smart home system, walk-in closets, two living rooms, an infinity pool and a balcony with a hammock.
While Makanda is just a short drive from some amazing Costa Rican restaurants, the on-site restaurant Arbol is one of the hotel's points of pride. The restaurant features interesting international fare but always done with an innovative twist. Everything on the menu is interpreted through the eyes of the extremely talented kitchen staff. Some of the signature dishes include sea bass with green barley risotto, grilled octopus with romesco sauce, pork belly with quinoa cream and Costa Rican-style fried fish.
