The hotel was beautiful, the rooms were clean, spacious and comfortable. The staff were very helpful. The best part were the golf-carts to travel around the hotel. Minus points are for the disappointing breakfast, even from the Menu. Dinner was good though. All in all, a good experience.

HOTEL’S FAVOURITE REVIEW

This was the last hotel on our tour of Costa Rica and was it ever the best! We stayed with 7 chaperones and 41 students and took up approximately half of the rooms. But it never felt that way. The manager and his staff greeted us as we arrived after a long day of travel. The staff helped us to...

This place is fantastic, totally sorrounded by a dense forest it makes you forget you are a couple of miles away from Quepos, the access is not that easy, but it is part of the experience. The Studio room was simply awesome, plenty of space everywhere and the balcony with a great view is a MUST to expend the afternoon...

On our recent trip to Costa Rica, my wife and I rented one of the condos on the residential side of this property (unit 320) with my brother and sister in law and loved it. The property feels secluded, but is actually very close to some amazing shopping and restaurants; as well as a secluded beach nearby. I would recommend...

Shana was great for my first trip to Costa Rica. They have nice rooms with safes, beautiful bathrooms, and semi-private balconies. Also air conditioning, which isn't common for a lot of the country. It pretty close to the beach, but it's still quite a hike down all told. No one can build on the beach and it's very hilly so...

Shana is in my opinion one of the best lodging options in Manuel Antonio. The rooms are modern and have a view. The food was delicious and not as expensive as other restaurants in the area. It was a great choice staying at Shana!
