This is a beautiful property with excellent customer service. We booked our tours through the hotel which made our stay easy and fun. We also booked our exit covid testing. The nurses arrived right on time to our room - fast and convenient! Great restaurant and bar! We loved the path and the private beach.

Everything about this property was excellent. Staff was always so friendly and helpful. They set up all of our adventures which turned out to be amazing. Hotel was clean and beautiful with probably one of the best views in Manuel Antonio. Food was delicious and drinks by the pool were tasty. They also have an adult only pool which was super relaxing. I would HIGHLY recommend Shana to anyone visiting the area. It was the perfect vacation.

Ocean view rooms are nice. The Adult-only horizon pool has a nice jungle and ocean view with partial sunsets, which made a relaxing and enjoyable experience. Friendly and accommodating staff are all around. Lovely customizable breakfasts prepared by skilled chefs every morning were a plus! The terrain is challenging (steep hills) but they have golf carts giving rides to anyone who needs them all day long. Expect to see many birds, capuchin monkeys and maybe even some sloths in the jungle surrounding the hotel. The 5-10 minute hike down to the wonderful (public) beach would be a real challenge to anyone with major mobility issues.

Greetings, Thank you very much for your nice and kind comments, we are delighted to learn that you enjoyed all our services, facilities, and the lush forest that surrounding us. Even the Bisaenz beach access can be a kind of challenge to people with mobility issues, our great location gives our customers the option to visit Manuel Antonio beach, less than 10 minutes by drive.

Pretty place.

Pros: The restaurant has a nice view. The pool area are impressive. The staff are so helpful in guiding us to tour and the surround area.
Cons: Price can be lower for low season to attract more customers
Location: It is near beaches and two town. Restaurants are near by.
It is a small hike down to the beach. The room is clean. It is so comfortable place. We definite want to go back and stay at this hotel again. Breakfast was fabulous.
