Worth the hike
It’s quite the hike up the hill to the hotel rooms, and they do have golf carts willing to take you - but you could get your workout for the day! The rooms are shipping containers so small but clean. The pool is very nice with a beautiful view! The staff was very friendly & the breakfast is pretty good.

Concept done well
I have always heard about shipping containers being repurposed for hotels and have always wanted to try it. This hotel has done a good job. Even though the hotel is set up on a hill, they make sure the residents are able to access the rooms easily with the golf buggies. Upon walking into the rooms, the only indication that you are in a shipping container is the shape of the room. They have been very well set up and decorated and the view of the ocean, especially at sunset was worth it. The only complaint was the noise in the morning. Sound proofing is something they have forgotten about

El Faro Beach Hotel
Great staff, clean space, spectacular view. Up a very steep hill (not mentioned in website). Breakfast was paltry. Prices have skyrocketed in the last 10 years, but expected a bit more for what we paid.

El Faro Beach Hotel
We were in Costa Rica for the first time. It was paradise! The El Faro is wonderful! It has the best access to the Manuel Antonio Park and the beach.

El Faro Beach Hotel
Great view, room - not so much.
The El Faro is made from shipping containers which sounds like a great idea. However we found it was very noisy, especially since we were near the stairs. It had a large bed and a couch that converted into another bed. The couch was broken and swayed way back which was not comfortable for sitting. Of the 4 day’s we were there, we got an incomplete set of towels 2 days. The view is great from the hotel and the breakfast came with the stay, which was nice.
