This is a really great place but having spent a fortnight cruising around in 5* luxury this was a little bit of a come down. Each hut is a lovely little home but could benefit from nicer towels, some upmarket complimentary soaps and a better shower head - just a few little touches would really lift it up a notch.... More

Thanks a lot for the review. We cannot compare to the 5* Hotels that you spend before, but we are happy to know about what kind of details we should work on to be a better Hotel. For the summer time we change the loungers to be more comfortable, but in this time of the year, we put the plastic... More

My husband and I recently returned from a lovely, romantic 8 day wedding/honeymoon at the Manala Hotel and we cannot express enough into words the kindness we felt during our stay. The bungalow had all of the amenities needed & the staff took extremely great care of our family. They would decorate daily with different flowers, towel arrangements, clothing put... More

The bungalows are simply stunning. So beautifully decorated, spacious and extremely romantic. The staff are welcoming, friendly and very helpful. The pool area is lovely, although with such close proximity to the beach, we didn't spend any time by the pool. The beach across the street, is down a jungle path that leads straight on to a fantastic surf spot.... More

We stayed at Manalá for 8 nights. We had a wonderful time there. The surroundings could not have been better and the staff were very friendly and eager to make our stay as pleasant as possible. In the morning we were surrounded by lots of strange noises from birds, squirrels and other animals, it was really something special from what... More

Lovely room with natural surroundings. I had a very peaceful stay here, bar the odd wake up call at 4am by two groups of Howler monkeys in the trees (which I actually secretly really enjoyed hearing). I was in the top casita...I would rather be slightly closer to the restaraunt and pool and reception next time, only because I was... More

We left Manalá just two days ago - we stayed for four nights in Bungalow 3. Our stay was absolutely perfect!! We will definitely stay here again if/when in Santa Theresa. The bungalows were perfect for our family of four - they have A/C, a mini fridge, safe, there was a queen bed and twin mattresses, upon our request. The... More
