We loved every minute of our stay at Hotel Moana. From arranging transfers to and from the airport, to impeccable service on-site, the hospitality far exceeded our expectations. We stayed in the honeymoon suite, which was the most breathtaking view I've ever had in a hotel room. The private terrace with an outdoor shower, the beautiful bathroom, the floor to ceiling windows that open up to the ocean, the platform bed and the stunning decor made the room itself feel incredibly luxurious as well. The food at the restaurant was great - we had breakfast and dinner there nearly every day in Mal Pais. You're across the street from the beach but only a 5 minute walk, and the benefit of being built into the hill is the spectacular view of the ocean above the trees. The pool was also a quiet and lovely spot to relax. We've been raving about our stay at Moana since we stayed there in January 2014 and we can't wait to come back. We had a bout of food poisoning (from a restaurant in town - be careful when eating raw lettuce and vegetables!) and we had to call a medic - they were very responsive, helpful and compassionate at the front desk and did everything they could to make us comfortable. The entire staff was so helpful and pleasant during our visit - we can't say enough good things about Moana.
