First off, let me say that the hotel pool and grounds (surrounding forest, etc.) were nice. But unfortunately, we had a terrible experience. We checked in late when we arrived after a long journey, therefore it was very dark. The next morning when we woke up we noticed that ants were crawling near the bed. Little did we know, we... More

No matter where someone chooses to stay in the middle of a Rainforest environment, ants and insects will always be an extremely typical issue. However we always take pride in our service and cleanliness that we provide for each and every one of our guests. Many of our reviews are with resepect to our cleanliness and five star quality service. More

Very strange layout. No front desk just a single desk with two chairs you wait in the yard. Welcome drink was terrible. They should not offer if their heart not in it. NO SIDEWALKS. It is on a very steep hill with no parking. As is typical in Costa Rica to signs to beach and it takes lots of walking... More

You mentioned that we have no front desk and that we have no sidewalks. The whole hotel has a sidewalk running around its perimiter and there is more than plenty of parking in front of each building. We also most definitely have a permanent front desk, and when you refer to the desk and two chairs and "waiting in the... More

Booked this hotel on booking.com after reading many reviews on TripAdvisor and we were very happy and not disapointed. The best thing is the location, 3 minutes walk to an amazing beach, 10 minutes to the National Park or the beach of Manuel Antonio. Inside the hotel is the perfection with an exceptional staff. Rooms are very modern and clean,... More

We were pleasantly surprised with this beautiful Mediterranean style hotel. Our rooms were spacious and very clean. We enjoyed delightful drinks by the pool after a long day of hiking in Manuel Antoino National Park. We had a real treat with a sloth perched right outside our balcony and could see the monkeys in nearby trees. The private beach was... More

I stayed last year at Shana and the experience was far from great. The ac wasn't working, the breakfast wasn't good at all and the staff was unable to give me a solution which may make me feel happy. Also it was a little too noisy at night.
