Staff was very nice. Internet did not work in our room. We asked to see if it could be improved but got no results. Room was not as clean as other places. Had to get refrigerator hocked up ourselves.

07/24/2018

Beds are very hard, but overall a great place.

07/14/2018

The room was enormous, with one main room (2 beds) and two connecting rooms (1 bed each). It was so large, we thought it was just the middle room for us. My end guess is that maybe it was supposed to be the center room and one adjoining room, but that the other room was included because it couldn't be rented on its own: its bathroom door didn't really close, and its toilet wasn't properly flushing. For our purposes though, just using it for some extra space, it was great. The breakfast was okay, but the menu didn't have too many choices for 3 days.

Loved the Shana! loved the beach! Had a great time here and felt very pampered.

06/28/2018

The Shana Hotel was absolutely breathtaking!

04/03/2018

Hotel was great, beach pretty. Need transportation to get anywhere else, no restaurants or other facilities other than hotel within walking distance.

03/27/2018

This resort was beautiful. I enjoyed the natural wildlife. It was wonderful

03/20/2018

Great staff- let us sneak under the time for happy hour. Love those Cuba litres.

03/15/2018

Gorgeous hotel with a short private walk to the beach.

03/10/2018

Again, everything was perfect except that I would have liked a shuttle to town or to the public beach.

02/21/2018

We were upgraded into the Presidential Suite and while it was very nice, we suspect it hadn't been used in some time as there was mold growing in the roll-up blinds and behind the glass in picture frames. The suite was large and comfortable but also located directly under the kitchen. We awoke to food preparations every morning. We were happy to be in this upgraded room with a private pool but don't imagine others would pay listed prices for that same room.

02/18/2018

The swimming pool had constant loud music playing which meant we could not relax there. However the beach was wonderful

02/17/2018

The service at this hotel was just okay.

02/03/2018

Staff went out of their way to provide us with an early (pre normal serving time) carry out breakfast for us to enjoy on the way to the airport.

01/28/2018

Staff was helpful and friendly.

01/15/2018

nice hotel

01/09/2018

Mention at check in to keep door closed as the monkeys will steal things. With air travel insisting on plastic bags for liquids, and the money's loving plastic bags and the rains, more plastic bags. Monkey's very cute!

01/05/2018

Restaurant was pretty bad. Staff were great but food quality and timeliness was low. Served me uncooked spaghetti and we waited over an hour for a salad. They need a shuttle to the plaza in Manuel Antonio as I spent over $100 on cab rides just to get to and from restaurants to eat. Amazing beach and wildlife nearby.

01/01/2018

IT was lovely but we had absolutely no view of the ocean- we looked into the trees. I had expected there to be ocean views. Otherwise it was very nice. The restaurant was amazing.

12/23/2017

Great hotel, far from town, steep hill location, beach was no more than a little cove and not a 5 mt walk but rather a 15 mt. hike, up and down, not a good path.

12/22/2017

We LOVED The Shana!!! Everything about the stay there was incredible. I'd stay here again for sure.

12/06/2017

This was another great hotel with a very friendly and helpful staff. The food was excellent and the views were amazing.

07/27/2017

Nice hotel on a very steep hill. Golf charts were always available to take you to your room. It's a short walk to a nice beach. Watch out for the monkeys that invade the patios - don't leave anything out for them to take.

07/02/2017

I would have like easier access to the beach. I didn't feel sate taking the path that we were shown. Therefore we weren't able to go watch the sunsets or get up early and go to the beach.

02/18/2017

Not having a car made it difficult to easily access other restaurants for meals. The breakfast at the Shana was mediocre. The lunch and dinner menu were good, but very expensive. The cocktails were weak. Otherwise the Shana was wonderful.

01/03/2015

Rebecca was absolutely wonderful. Other staff was great. We usually use the hotel to get recommendations of other restaurants, etc but for some reason the staff seemed extremely hesitant to recommend anything outside the hotel.
