Staff and owners friendly and helpful.
Rooms very clean and comfortable, great bed.
Saw howler monkeys in the car park and a range of birds.
Restaurant had reasonable prices but 90 steps up, well worth it for views.
Great beach walk into town.
Stayed over a week, really liked sitting in the jacuzzi with a beer from the pool bar.

We stayed for almost a week at Moana in early February. Overall we had a good time there but there was definitely not the friendliness that many reviewers here have reported. We did a full writeup of our stay at our blog.

Overall we really enjoyed our stay at the Moana Lodge.

PROS
Hotel has a boutique style feel. The atmosphere is relaxed, secure and friendly.
The Junior suites were very nice and clean with stunning views of the Mal Pais coast.
The restaurant/bar was the perfect place to watch the sun set over the ocean.
Staff was friendly and curteous.
Restaurant has good food at reasonable prices. Breakfast is included with a choice of six options.
Swimming pool was clean and refreshing with lots of seating and lounge beds to strech out on.
Wireless internet available throughout the complex.

CONS
The hotel is a good 10 minute walk (dusty) to town, so a car is nice to have.

A boutique hotel with beautiful views, charming rooms, helpful staff and relaxing communal areas. Good restaurant and great cocktails which means you needn't go into town=perfect.

Cab into town was about 4 dollars each way, but that's a lot cheaper than hiring a quad bike or car if you've got a short stay.

Recommended.
