We really enjoyed our days at Makanas. We will definitely be back. Perfect location with amazing beaches within footsteps. Monkeys and lizards all around. Aaron can make a wicked waffle. Aaron is a terrific guide. He knows the area like the back of his hand.

I stayed at Makanas for a week and had trouble leaving. The rooms are clean, and air conditioned, and the porches all had hammocks that were great to relax in after a day on the beach. A hop, skip, and a jump from some of the most amazing beach I've ever been to, Makanas provides unparalleled value. I would definitely... More

The couple who manage Makanas are very friendly and accommodating. They arranged the return of one rental car (at a great savings), the acquisition of another, the rental of an ATV, personally guided some great fishing trips, arranged beautiful flowers for my wife's arrival, and made us feel part of the local community. The chef makes amazing breakfast and lunch.... More

We didn't stay at the hotel but we did ask to see a room for a future lodging possibility. It was decorated quite nicely, clean, spacious, and had AC, which is a... More

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Makanas offers three discreet and quaint cabins and a restaurant by the ocean. Step out of your room and watch the monkeys swing by in the canopy above or listen to the tropical birds in the morning as you enjoy a cup of delicious Costa Rican coffee. We are located well away from the hustle and bustle of downtown Santa Teresa, yet steps away from the prized beaches Santa Teresa is known for. Come experience Santa Teresa at its best, with world class surfing, fishing, excellent cuisine and some of the best sunsets the world has to offer. Whether you are a couple looking for something more private or a larger group looking to all stay together, we can accommodate your needs. We look forward to seeing you at Makanas!
