Ever asked yourself what happens to old shipping containers? What to do with 20ft or 40tf long metal boxes?
Build a hotel! 35% faster, 60% savings of water consumption and 75% less construction waste.
As the Netherlands already discovered the pros of using shipping containers as apartments,rooms for students, Costa Rica opened now the first Sea Container Hotel – El Faro Beach Hotel.
Two blocks of containers, pool view and ocean view. The Ocean View rooms are the favorites, besides the 40tf Penthouse Suites and 20ft Penthouse Studios on the top of the 2nd block.
From the outside you recognize the original see container, from the inside you first need to get used to the limited space and narrow room. Each container has a balcony from where you enjoy the view to the ocean and Nationalpark Manuel Antonio or to the huge pool.
Sure, as the rooms are container and 7 containers in a row, you might hear your neighbour talking, but well that is the container feeling! It sounds a bit crazy, but a great experience! Recommended for people who have a tighter budget, no problems in walking up stairs and looking for some different places, thematic hotels.
Two other point you need to know:
1. The food is probably the best food in Manuel Antonio! Unbelievable delicious. Asiatic, BBQ, Costa Rican Traditions, you need to try the restaurants! Absolute amazing.
2. The hotels has the perfect location. Situated in the hillside contours of Manuel Antonio National Park and only few steps from the center, El Faro Beach Hotel offers a tropical paradise setting for your holiday!
