  • Shana is a great resort — and not as sprawling as some of the big corporate properties.…

    Beautiful hotel very close to Manuel Antonio

    Beautiful hotel - little slice of luxury very close to Manuel Antonio park. Our room was huge with an amazing sea & pool view. They decorated our room beautifully for our honeymoon & made the occasion really special for us. We only stayed here a night & it rained the morning of our departure so unfortunately we didn’t get to use the pool or see much wildlife. But the pool facilities seemed great. The food in the restaurant was amazing & was reasonably priced - there aren’t any other restaurants in walking distance from what we gathered but I imagine taxis would be reasonable. The road is very windy and steep to get to this hotel if driving - we don’t recommend driving here in the dark like we did but it is manageable if necessary.

    Incredible stay

    This was such a perfect hotel and trip for a group of our friends. We booked the presidential suite which included 3 rooms, a living room, kitchen, and private pool. Much of our trip was spent at the adult pool (behind the pool bar) and the service and drinks were fantastic. Every member of the staff was very friendly and quick. The daily breakfast was amazing. The hotel is very close to a semi-private beach and also very close to multiple good restaurants up the main road. We recommend driving a car (or renting taxi's) to get everywhere in town because the hotel is located up a steep hill. The views are gorgeous - I would absolutely stay here again

    Great hotel!

    2nd time I've stayed at hotel. Beautiful hotel, super-friendly staff and great for nature watching. You'll see monkeys on your balcony every day. Beach is stunning, but if you have difficulty walking up and down stairs I'd avoid it.

    Wonderful Place to Stay

    This is a beautiful location and the people running it are kind, friendly, and welcoming. Everyone from the front desk, restaurant, spa, drivers, security, and housekeepers made our stay outstanding. I highly recommend this place to anyone who is visiting Manuel Antonio. We were sad to have to leave but definitely looking forward to going back.
