WOW, WHAT A WONDERFUL PLACE TO UNWIND!!My wife and I spent 6 wonderful days in Makanda. It was our 3rd time staying at the hotel and it was just spectacular. We have travelled all over Costa Rica and are always happiest when the trip leads us to Makanda. The staff is always helpful and friendly. We have spent 2 anniversaries there and each time we had a special evening beginning with a splendid dinner poolside and ending with private time in our Villa. The restuarant staff will fo out of there way to ensure your special occasion remains special!! The food is awesome. For a romantic get away I can think of no better place. There are plenty of things to do in the daytime for the more adventurous. I recommend the canopy zip line tour and there are also estuary kayak tours available.
Our favorite day is hiking to either the private "Hotel Beach" or if we feel like more of a challenge, we will walk to Manuel Antonio Beach. If you want privacy the Hotel Beach is the way to go.
We will be back!!
