Hotel Los Altos is Manuel Antonio’s premier luxury gateway to the beautiful nature and extraordinary people of Costa Rica. Designed with passion and dedication, the Preserve at Los Altos provides a Costa Rican vacation like no other in Manuel Antonio. They offer guests a relaxed luxury resort experience while encouraging exploration of the astounding nature that makes up this tropical preserve.
Perched along a quiet portion of the mountain that runs along the Pacific Ocean, The Preserve at Los Altos is a serene beach resort with a tranquil mountain feel. The open-air design of this resort combines five-star amenities with direct access to natural surroundings. You’ll quickly learn that The Preserve at Los Altos isn’t just another Manuel Antonio hotel or resort.
The luxurious accommodations aren’t just simple hotel rooms, but spacious three-bedroom residences, each boasting private elevator access, ocean-view balconies, state-of-the-art kitchens, and more than enough room for everyone to kick back and relax after long day out. It’s the perfect home away from home feel for which Los Altos has become famous.
The Preserve at Los Altos is the perfect destination resort for families, groups, and couples. Spacious accommodations afford from two to six people with more than enough room to spread out and feel instantly relaxed. Staff is available twenty-four hours a day to ensure that all guests’ needs are taken care of.
Guests will likely see monkeys, sloths, toucans and Morpho butterflies. As for the plant life, the many species of trees and flowers will absolutely astound the senses. Karola’s, the Hotel’s resort’s gourmet restaurant, is a perfect place to sit back, relax, grab a bite to eat or a drink, and enjoy the beauty and freshness of all this nature.
The infinity pool, which was designed to appear to float under the tree canopy, is a fantastic place to spend a relaxing time. The freshwater pool as an inviting place to swim, splash around or just hang out. The ocean view, as well as the tree canopy, offers an idyllic backdrop for a morning or afternoon well spent. The pool’s snack bar makes it easy to sit out on the pool patio and enjoy snacks and drinks.
We really liked this condo facing the ocean. The condo is about 2500 square feet with three bedrooms and three baths. The elevator opened up into the room, which is a first for us. We enjoyed the great kitchen, bedrooms, comfortable beds, beautiful bathrooms and showers,and huge terrace.
We loved the idea of being able to play house in the jungle (you can make your own snacks in the full kitchen after buying some groceries down the street), but we also took full advantage of the meticulous daily service and great food at the on-site restaurant. Views from both rooms and the restaurant are stunning, and watching the sunset with delicious coffee and ice cream became a natural end of day activity.
Down the hill is the local beach, and, although it’s a bit rocky, we enjoyed exploring and taking photos. Plus there are gorgeous beaches a four-minute cab ride away, so one can enjoy days at the beach.
And when you aren’t running around on adventures, you can lounge by the pool, sip fruit smoothie cocktails, and soak up the sun. The pool/spa area is well-crafted, and it’s made all the better by the location.
This hotel is great for friends, new or old, who want to escape their normal routines.
