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

We stayed here for 5 nights the first week of May and enjoyed this place quite a bit. The property is surprisingly secluded and the grounds are some of the cleanest i've ever seen.

I stayed here in February with two other friends for 2 nights. The grounds are stunning and each cabin is extremely spacious, picturesque and spotless. Breakfast was always delicious and we very much loved hopping into the mainly deserted but serene pool every night after a long day on the beach or exploring the town.
