We enjoyed our stay at the Shana Hotel last week (mid Feb 2017). The staff were accommodating and friendly. Our dining experience at the hotel was very good -nice local fish and tasty veggie pizza, priced within the range of the area in general. The rooms were comfortable and very clean. Towels could have been softer. The incline from room...

The hotel could use some repairs and updating but the staff are great and it's a great location. About a 10 minute drive to the park. There is a private beach right beside the hotel which is lovely. Large suites for families for a good price.

Shana Hotel was everything we hoped it would be for our vacation to Manuel Antonio. Close to beach, bank, and shops, anything we wanted when we left the hotel property was easily found with the help of the hotel staff. The food was excellent with fresh-caught, local fish cooked in wood-fired pizza oven and very tasty chateau brillant.
