I stayed at Moana Lodge for a week this past April. I wouldn't change a thing about our stay.
The rooms are very clean and give you a true, rustic Costa Rican feel - while remaining comfortable and providing all the essentials we are used to in the States. This includes air conditioning, which is a necessity after a hot day in the Costa Rican sun!
The attention to detail and desire to please the customers is quite obvious from the minute you meet the staff. In particular, Bruno, the hotel manager is constantly going above and beyond to make sure his guests are having the best possible vacation possible.
The restaurant on the property not only serves delicious food and cocktails, but the sunset views from there are unparalleled.
The area is great for exploring. There are many great restaurants and beaches in Santa Teresa, so I recommend renting a quad for the week and exploring. The hotel will gladly set this up for you !
I would recommend this property to any friend traveling to Costa Rica ! Pura Vida!
