Recently stayed at Manala for a week with the family, and I must say we were blown away by the friendly attentive staff, the meticulously maintained grounds, and the cute, clean, and spacious bungalows. My family traveled here with three small children, and Manala was very accommodative in customizing the bungalow to meet our needs. Fabian greeted us upon arrival... More

This hotel was absolutely amazing! We would gladly stay here again and would highly recommend staying here! There are 8 individual bungalows, a great pool, good restaurant (though we only ate breakfast there) and a security guard that patrols the grounds after dark. A pathway granting access to the beach is directly across from the entrance to the hotel. The... More

The hotel is beautiful, the room has good space and very nice. We stayed there 3 nights and we enjoyed it a lot. The personal is very nice, the owner is always around talking with customers, that was a surprice and a plus from our point of view. Beach is very close from hotel. Something important is that the bathroom... More

I called Manala Hotel while desperately trying to get away from another property nearby. The front desk agent was nice enough to block a room for us (the last one they had) for a few hours until we got a refund from the other property and moved to Manala. It turned out to be the best choice ever! Our bungalow... More

We loved the bungalows. Large, nicely decorated, clean, cool shower. Each one is separate so it is quiet and you have a private patio. Staff was very friendly and nice. I rated 4 stars because of the ac, it only works with a card while you are in the room. So, if you enjoy going out to dinner and returning... More

The reason I give this place 3 stars is the price, lack of Internet & cash requirement. They advertise wifi. For a cabana without internet I would not have booked this place for $100 a night. We stayed for one night because we depend on Internet to work in order to communicate, plan our daily activities. The wifi here does... More
