I stayed here for 7 days in Feb. and this was my first time in this area of CR. The grounds of the hotel were very well maintained, the rooms clean and spacious, the pool very inviting and the restaurant very convenient. I found the restaurant staff to be quite friendly and engaging. The "Manala" breakfast was simple and tasty with fresh fruit, toast (that looked like little cookies, yummy) coffee and juice....just right (they also had a full breakfast menu). This was also a great place to have dinner as well. The 2 guys at reception, Fabian and Ronald, were just great young men, both spoke english very well but had a hard time with my very limited Spanish, which created some good laughs LOL. I rented a Quad (on site) for 5 days and these guys gave me great ideas and directions of where I could go exploring on this fun machine. I highly recommend renting one...they are a blast and you get to go to and see places you wouldn't otherwise. Would I return to the Santa Teresa area and stay at the Manala Hotel....absolutely!!! The beach is very close and beautiful, as was 2 others, Playa Carmen and Playa Hermosa all great for surfing and brilliant sunsets. To the Management and the "great" staff of Manala, thank you for the wonderful hospitality, you WILL see me again...PURA VIDA!!!
