We stayed at a premium residence at Shana because we wanted to have a two bedroom suite for our family along with a nice view of the ocean. The property is built into some steep terrain so walking up to our residence from the pool/restaurant/reception area was a workout! They do offer golf cart rides if you need them. The...

This is a great option for anyone staying in Manuel Antonio area. It is great for families. Nice pool and restaurant. Good location. Stores are about a mile away up hill and a $8-10 cab ride. If you are looking for an upscale hotel The Shana should be one of your choices.

We had a wonderful stay at Shana. Being beach people there is access to a cozy cove beach within walking distance of our room. The property built into the hillside provided evening sunsets and mornings of curious monkeys. The location was private enough for privacy and security but close enough for easy access to "the big city" via taxis. We...

Great stay, we enjoyed the quiet comfort of our hotel, and the secluded private beach a few minutes away. While visiting this area we kayaked, snorkeled (limited) and explored Manuel Antonio National Park and the Riverwalk Conservation Trail. Excellent Adventure!

The service at Hotel Shana was terrific. Especially Carlos who helped us at the restaurant many times, and John, the General Manger. Both were very attentive to our needs!
