Hotel Makanda by the Sea in Manuel Antonio, Costa Rica

Adjacent to Manuel Antonio National Park, within a 12-acre sanctuary poised 200 meters above the Pacific Ocean, the adult-only Hotel Makanda by the Sea captures the magical spirit of Costa Rica. Open-air and well-appointed villas and studios are sculpted harmoniously into the natural environment, and boast spectacular views of the 60-mile coastline. In this unspoiled wonderland, you can savor fresh seafood, drift in the stunning infinity pool, or watch local wildlife including monkeys and sloths as they wind their way through the rainforest.

Although the resort boasts spacious viewing decks reaching into the jungle canopy, you will want to venture further out, to raft the Savegre River or take a horseback ride along a rainforest trail. Secluded nearby beaches provide sublime settings for surfing, sunning and sea kayaking. You might also snorkel or scuba dive off the volcanic reefs of local islands. For pure indulgence, request a soothing spa treatment. Then unwind over homemade dessert and a cup of coffee freshly roasted at the hotel's own Sunspot Bar & Grill.

Makanda by the Sea is in a spectacular setting and creates the ambiance of total paradise. Perfect for a romantic get away. My fiance and I stayed for one week. Our room was modern, well air conditioned, and had a fantastic comfortable king bed. The floor to ceiling windows on the balcony with the view of the ocean, are unparalleled. We saw more wildlife poolside at Makanda than we did on our excursion to the National Park. The private beach is stunningly rugged. The staff were very friendly and accommodating. We asked to see some of the other private homes and rooms for potential future vacations and they showed us many of the rooms that were vacant. The infinity pools are amazing. The food was great! The new restaurant was being constructed while we were there, and I'm sure it will be fantastic. INCREDIBLE and HIGHLY RECOMMEND, can't say enough about it. Trip of a lifetime. We will be back!

This property is so beautiful I almost don't want to write a review so I can keep it to myself! From check-in to check-out, the staff was top-notch and the view from the saltwater pool is to die for. The draw for me is the adults only rule and the peace and quiet the surrounding forest provides. Many thanks to Alberto and Leo at the front desk and Jorge the best bellman in all of Manuel Antonio! And hats off to Gabriel at the sushi bar for playing both bartender and photographer. Spent 4 nights at Makanda and seriously did not want to leave -- I will definately be back!

Location, views and hospitality were well beyond my expectations. There's a lot of renovations going on. So I look forward to coming back to when the place is even better. We were lucky enough to get one of the newly built rooms. Giant beach view balcony and massive bathroom.

The hotel is very nice. The location is perfect in front of the sea. The place is very quiet, we had a private villa with terrace with sea view. The food is excellent, we had sushi, octopus, and healthy breakfast.

My spouse and I spent 6 great nights at this marvelous hotel, upon our arrival we were greeted by Alberto who was very welcoming and covered all the information we needed for our stay. Of course we enjoyed our complimentary pineapple smoothie. The accommodations were excellent and comfortable, loved that on most day's we had the pool to ourselves. The wildlife around the property was amazing to wake up to every day. Our bartender and waiter for the 6 days Luis was friendly and accommodating. We are already making plans to return to Makanda and bringing friends. Only one suggestion for my Makanda friends maybe putting in a dresser drawer in the closet or the bathroom to store our clothes, this would make the accommodations even better.
