Is ok, but have a lot noisy with discotheque in his restaurant
I don't usually post reviews, but the staff at this hotel was so nice and I wanted people to know how great they are! It started with Melissa who took care of us at check in. Elias and Melissa gave us great advice on tours (do the canopy, sailing park and rafting#, then Andres and Davey #and another tall guy...forget the name# took great care of us at the Bistro restaurant and while we lounged around the pool #with monkeys). We had some fun nights at the sports bar, thank you Oscar for the free drinks! As you can see, everyone became like family there and we can't wait to share this with friends who will be coming to Costa Rica soon too!
We stayed in a bungalow for 6 nights,had monkeys and sloths right outside of our balcony.was amazing. Also iguanas and Jesus Christ lizards right on the grounds.You may get woke up early from the hauling monkeys in the trees but it's a sound you will never forget. The Bungalow was very spacious with a microwave, fridge and safe. And was extremely clean,with a comfortable bed. I saw no insects in the room. The staff was very professional and made sure we had a great time. Thank you Mellisa, Carlos,Victor,Davey and the rest of the staff, We will be back for sure. Do the horseback tour,Atv tour,Mangove tour and the sunset dinner cruise while in the area, Its a great way to get out and see the beauty and wildlife of the area. The staff will set all this up for you, and a shuttle will come pick you up at the front desk. The pizza at Byblos is very good and worth having,along with the complimentary breakfast, which they give you a choice of several dishes, from fruit and cereal, to ham and cheese omletts.
We had a good time at this hotel, the staff was very friendly. Our room overlooked the pool with lots of monkeys around almost all the time. They have 2 restaurants, we liked the one by the pool, though the one by their bar was only so/so. Breakfast was included and we appreciated that each morning before going out on tours. The location was good to get to the park and beaches, there are other hotels a little closer, but for the excellent price we got we were very happy with our choice. We are considering coming back in around 6 months and we will probably stay here again if we can get the same great price, it was a pretty good value for the buck!
Byblos was fantastic- perfect location, helpful staff, tons of monkeys and wildlife! Such a great deal for the price- we had a fantastic time and would definitely stay there again!
Our family took a summer vacation to Costa Rica and great fun was had by all! We loved Byblos, as we could literally turn the kids lose on the property and they were kept entertained at the pool (staff there to watch them), up at the billiards tables (more staff), around the property with the monkeys, or any other number of tour options that were available close by. I was able to actually visit the spa two times, which is unheard of for me! The restaurant choices at Byblos worked out perfect for us. The breakfast was included each day, and the easy pizza all day/night and the snack foods at the sportsbar fed our kids easily. There were also many other options within walking distance. Definitely go to The Plane (an old Nicaraguan Contra plane), the kids loved that place, though we thought the food was only average. We highly recommend the park tour and ATVs. Our kids enjoyed both, especially the beach after the park, and swimming in the waterfall on the ATVs. So I think that about sums things up. Great find for families traveling and looking for a good deal!!
Hotel Byblos was the perfect pick for our needs. When we travel we like to be able to walk alot and mix with the locals and due to the central location of this hotel on the way to the park we were able to walk or bus almost anywhere in just a few minutes. Be it park, beach, bars, tapas, restaurants, spas, etc, we were always only minutes away. It was nice to see so many exotic animals go thru the hotel, such as sloth, monkeys, coati mundis, armadillos and something they called a watusa (not sure what it was, but it looked like a large hamster!). The food is very good at both the pizzeria and the sports bar up the hill, though the casino looked a lttle small (we did not go in there.) I was defintely happy to be able to watch the basketball finals on their large screen tvs, that saved the whole trip! We would return to Byblos if we ever go back to this area, we definitely fell in love with Costa Rica.
This was a great choice for our family. Everyday the kids got to swim in the pool with monkeys in the surrounding trees. We got some great photos. The food was great at the hotel, but we also liked that we could walk to other venues with the kids. Let the hotel help you with tours, we did some great activities (zipline, park, mangrove boat tour) that we would highly recommend. We didn't use the casino, so no comments there. Great value, we would definitely return!
We stayed at this hotel as a quick family getaway before Easter. The kids loved the pizza place by the pool, as well as the snack foods at the Sports Bar & Grill upstairs. The hubby enjoyed the free billiards and I got to play in their small casino. It was easy walking distance for other restaurants, the kids really enjoyed the old contra airplane just down the street. Rooms were comfortable, monkeys plentiful and the staff took perfect care of us. Great time was had by all on this trip!!
The property is great, the oceon view from my room was excellent, the rooms are very big and comfortable. The decoration of the rooms are pretty, the fresh flower bouquets in the hallways are beautiful. The pool and the pool area are very clean. The breakfast was also great. The two things I can suggest to this places is to have the bedding of the rooms checked for stain, the duvets had big stain in them, eventhough the room was clean it gave me the wrong impresion, also the bathroom door was black, full of stain, very bad looking, it needs a coat of paint. Everything also was perfect. The staff was wonderfull. Keep it up.
This hotel is probably one of the coolest I have ever seen from an ecology perspective. The hotel is terraced and your surrounded by jungle, wild orchids, birds, frogs, etc. You will have to drive through a complete crap-hole town and up a mountain to get there but the views from the top are phenominal. If you stay here, eat at the restaurant by the pool at least once. You must also try the Le Chat Negro 'the black cat' restaurant, (its a 10 minute walk to the left down the hill) you can watch the iguana climb up the walls. \n\nNow, if your the adventures type drive to this hotel, you will cross three of the damn scariest bridges you have ever seen in your life but when you decide to venture out, go down the coast toward Dominical - there you will find the BEST black volcanic beaches of your life. count on 2+ hours for that.
