I just returned from my first visit to Santa Teresa with my girlfriend and staying at the Manala Hotel was part of my wonderful experience. The location was ideal, a bit on the further end of town so it was quiet yet conveniently located across from an entrance to the beautiful public beach, extremely close to the best local cuisine...

My friends and I had planned a trip to Santa Teresa but waited until a week before we left to book our hotel. With just a few options available for the dates of our stay, we decided on Manala after having received recommendations to stay there. It did not disappoint.

We just got back from our one week trip in Costa Rica and spent 5 nights here. It was a very relaxing, quiet place to stay that was very close to the beach.

What a gem this place is. Its very close to the beach but on the more north end of the town in general. If you have a car, ATV, or bike no worries. If on foot, be aware you will be doing a lot of walking to get most places. The staff was very friendly and check in was a... More

As the title says, our stay at the Manala Hotel could not have been any better! The bungalows are very clean and beautifully arranged; the living room is very big, including a comfortable bed, a (super fast!)

We left Manala Hotel this morning with the feeling that we really could have stayed several more days. The "casitas" they offer have great bedding, are clean, modern and comfortable. Ours was #6, and we loved being right across from the pool and restaurant. Noise was not an issue at all, and the way that the pool is set up... More

We stayed at Manala Hotel from 20-24JAN14. The location is great, approximately 200 meters from the beach. It is across the street from one of the many beach-access roads in Santa Teresa making the walk to the beach very convenient. The hotel itself is very quiet even though it is located off the main road. It is within 5 minutes... More
