“Great place to stay”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 16, 2011

Makana's was a perfect place for us to stay. As a family of 5 we were able to put the kids in one cabina with a queen bed and bunk beds and we had our own private cabina with queen bed. The price was very reasonable. We were a short walk to the beach with tide pools at low tide and good surfing a short stroll down the beach. Each cabina has a shaded porch, outdoor seating, and a hammock, private bathroom with hot water, 2 fans, and a small refrigerator. Conveniently, there is an excellent and reasonably priced restaurant next door--Ambrosia Restaurante. All extremely comfortable and satisfying for our stay. We will stay here again when we get back to Sta Teresa.

This is a lovely property, small, quiet and peaceful, away from the hustle and bustle of Santa Teresa. The cabinas are very clean and comfortable. The lanais are large with chairs and a table, a wonderful place to sit and watch and listen to the monkeys passing by and still have room for your surfcoards. There are 3 cabinas so it is very private. Each unit has a ceiling fan, a standing fan, small frig and hot water, there is also maid service.
In less than a minute with a short walk down the path you are right on the beach.
The restaurant on property is wonderful and the food is delicious and while we were there they had a different special every day.
Really great place to stay!!
