We stayed here for two nights and had a great experience. Some highlights: There was a new administration with new ideas and lots of energy. The restaurant had an an Italian person doing real Italian pizzas, they had a local chef who had a good taste, and everybody was very friendly.

I have visited Costa Rica many times and stayed many places, but I think this is the prettiest. We stayed in a condo that had a beautiful view overlooking the pool and ocean. The pool is beautiful, the food very good, and the service excellent. I used several of the Spa services and found them to be very good, also.... More

Everything was lovely, apart from the breakfast, they serve the juice from concentrate. It is very disappointing because it's Costa Rica, with a wide array of fresh fruits native to Costa Rica. The massage was absolutely amazing, possibly the best ever. I will love to go back there for Christmas but it is fully booked. The beach is very close,... More

Really enjoyed my recent visit to this out of the ordinary locale in Manuel Antonio! Resembling something out of Ibiza after gallantly meeting in Miami... Greek-almost, however overall simply Mediterranean inspired. Not anything I would have expected... Rooms are large, bathrooms are sharp and complete with powerful rain showers, awesome vistas and the Presidencial Suite is a perfect location for... More

Shana Hotel is a wonderfully appointed property, blending together modern room design with the natural beauty of Manuel Antonio national park. The hotels restaurant was full of options, whether you're in the mood for some local style fare or a classic brick oven pizza. The staff was super helpful and definitely part of the reason I would make a second... More

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
