Room was great. Breakfast staff could be slow but menu was great. Pool staff was friendly but sometimes got busy / not very responsive. Office staff was ok - did what was asked but didn't seem very excited about it. They did make sure we knew about The Mansion, and that was great - we went there for dinner (which was ok, service was very poor) and to the pool one day (which was stunning). Loved the beach and went down there several times.

I like the balcony and the big windows to the trees and hearing the mo keys at night and at dawn.

02/02/2019

Did expensive, also a food truck hit my husband at hotel, while staff were kind the hotel did not offer any additional support

01/27/2019

This is a lovely hotel, but out of the way from the main area. Walking to and from the hotel was difficult due to the hotel's location. Taxis were expensive to go a short distance. The restaurant at the hotel was very expensive so we didn;t eat there. The Biesanz beach was lovely. Staff were very accommodating.

01/24/2019

Upon our arrival, there was a strong septic smell on the resort and in the room. We inquired at reception and was told that they were aware of the situation and had the septic tank pumped and that there was nothing else they could do. Keeping the patio doors closed kept the smell out of the room. Would have preferred to keep the doors open and the A/C off. The smell made it difficult to enjoy the patio, restaurant and pool. Since the smell not only continued but got worse, we emailed PTW, mostly so that they could warn upcoming guests. Within 30 minutes, reception called us and requested that we meet with the manager the next day. The manager told us that a broken pipe was finally located and was repaired.

Beautiful setting and good location to take advantage of the beach. Great service with the golf carts!

01/14/2019

awesome accommodations, awesome staff, awesome breakfast, loved the private beach, loved Fabian the pool bartender and the entire restaurant staff.

01/04/2019

Dirty tile by pool. Smelled like moth balls. Terrible artwork. Staff very kind.

01/02/2019

we had a beautiful room; it was super spacious ; which i loved so i could thoroughly unpack all my stuff and feel at home; the restaurant was super expensive; the pizza and breakfast were excellent; and the staff really nice; loved the pool and the beach ; really liked the hotel;

12/25/2018

The hotel and staff were wonderful. I especially want to single out three people: Vidal, Diego, and Linda. Vidal helped us with our bags and was really friendly and kind to my family. Whenever we ran into him, he asked about how we were doing and was genuinely lnterested. Diego was our dinner waiter most of the time. He was helpful, courteous and a generally wonderful person. I and the family really liked him. He made the dinners very enjoyable. Linda was a morning, breakfast person. She was also nice to my family and a very nice person.

12/23/2018

The first room was no bathtub. So ask a receiption desk to see if they can change room with bathtub. They fund a room with bathtub but it only 2days and we need change room for last day. I said okay. The new room was bigger and nice view. The third day we move the room with private pool and kitchen. It was 3 bedroom. The room is very nice but it looks like not using often. There was mosquito and we got mosquito bit. But it was okay. The building are located hillside and golf cart need anytime to move. However, service was great. There were lots of two king monckeies . We are lucky to see them. I saw blue morpho. Pizza was great. We are very much satisfied.

12/12/2018

We saw squirrel and capuchin monkeys right at hotel while having breakfast this was the most fun hotel michelle the hostess was super nice as well as the other staff it was more personal that other larger hotels

11/29/2018

Perfect. Expensive food and transports like taxi. Should improve and advise existing uber service.

11/27/2018

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.

07/10/2018

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

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.
