I don't like to write bad reviews, usually i'd just rather have the universe sort things out, but felt my friend and i's experience was worth mentioning, since the reviews on this place don't accurately represent our experience. Honestly, this place is fine, but for what we paid, we expected more and would have paid more for better service. For... More

This is a nice hotel in Manuel Antonio. HOWEVER, for Costa Rica I was disappointed. It is the little things about service in Costa Rica that make a difference and they just did not have it. There is a concierge to help plan things to do, which was great. We went on a guided tour of the park which is... More

I spend my last weekend on Shana and it was just wonderful, I stayed in the presidential suite. Has its own pool, 3 bedrooms, huge living room and wonderful design and furniture. The Pizza is just amazing, you should definitely try it! :)

Our stay was simply amazing! From the first moment we have arrived, the crew was super nice and helpful. We were upgraded to the Junior-Suite since we were on our honeymoon and the room was absolutely gorgeous, with a balcony and a view-point to the ocean. By far one of the best hotels I've been to.

Shana hotel is situated close to playa Besanz (walking distance). A small little nice beach without huge waves (perfect for swimming).... I was really satisfied about the service of Shana hotel. The swimmingpool is nice and also the restaurant with great ocean views. The rooms are white and spacious. Because of the white decoration of the rooms you feel peace... More
