We went to El Gusto at the Shana Hotel for Valentine's Day to see the mother of soul. A really great show, and as always the food and service were outstanding. It was a set menu for a reasonable price, including wine tasting, 3 course meal and the show...and they still customized for our preferences. We go there often for...

Great location and excellent service, breakfast is not great but it doesn't matter when you are having a great time. Very clean, the service was amazing, the restaurant had different activities such as live concerts and folkloric dances.

I would stay here again and again. The staff has incredible hospitality skills, the location is incredible (I mean seriously, monkeys seen from the balcony and to be watched at breakfast), the staff knew your room number and likes within a few days, just amazing. They are incredible also at helping you book things and translating for you.

My fiancé and I recently stayed at the Shana while in Quepos. The hotel itself had beautiful views, clean rooms and great service. Its also close to many attractions which is helpful. The beach is just a short walk away. I highly recommend staying at Shana while vacationing in Quepos!
