The Falls Resort, an agreeable mid-range hotel, is situated just a ten-minute walk from the coast, close to Manuel Antonio National Park, on a leafy hilltop. There is a handy shuttle bus which takes visitors to the beach, the national park and Quepos, the little port town a short distance away.
The generously-proportioned rooms are attractive, if simply furnished, with generously sized beds, private bathroom and either an outdoor porch or a terrace. If you need any information or excursions to be organised, the accommodating staff are only too eager to please.
The gardens, overlooked by the guest rooms, are especially lovely, and attract all sorts of wildlife including monkeys, agoutis and bats. There's also a small pool and a restaurant.
