Booked last minute and got one of the rooms on the lower floors. #114. No real view to speak of but the room was clean and pleasant. Bathroom needs an extractor fan and an update. Internet struggles for speed at peak times. Main pool area was nice but the adults pool seemed to always be a bit crowded. Music around the pool was too loud during the day when you're trying to relax. Plenty of food options in the restaurant and all very good quality. A mention to Alexander, one of the staff members who genuinely seemed to want to interact and see that you were ok.

We loved our time here! The hotel/view/food/people were all wonderful! The hotel is on a hill, but Kevin was always around with his golf cart to drive us up the hill if we weren’t in the mood to walk up. At this hotel, we saw capuchins and squirrel monkeys right on our balcony. The beach is a downhill walk (maybe 5-7 min) to get to. The beach was beautiful, and the waves were small which made for easy swimming. The walk back to the hotel is uphill.

Wonderful resort, would definitely go back! So many monkeys! The pools were lovely. It was in a great location in Manuel Antonio. The beach at the resort was a 10 minute walk down, very beautiful! The food & drinks were good. The rooms were very clean. Ian was amazing at the reception:)

Hotel was beautiful and clean. Restaurant on site is great place to see the sunset . The breakfast buffet is included with your reservation and had a wonderful variety each morning including custom omelettes. Two pool areas, family and adult and a pool bar . Alex gave us exceptional service at the pool bar. The concierge was very helpful with recommendations and reservations and taxis. Our balcony had a view of the jungle, with a peak at the ocean. Plenty of wildlife to be seen including 3 species of monkeys , toucans , scarlet macaws , sloths etc. Only glitch was the electricity went out twice . The outages were brief but a bit concerning. Weather was very hot so I’m sure there was strain on the supply. The property runs golf carts to help guests maneuver the steep grade on the property. The entrance on the hotel property for Playa Biesanz was very convenient. Beach was awesome with vendors selling refreshments and renting chairs and canopies. Jerebe helped us spot a sloth , which was exciting on our very first morning of our vacation to this beautiful country. Overall an awesome experience!!!

We had my twins birthday party at Shana ..our server was named Warner ..I simply mentioned it was the kids birthday and he surprised them with seats front and center where live music was being played .the entire restaurant got up to sing ..He then presented each kiddo with little cakes with their names on them…it meant a lot ! We went back during the weekend and we were lucky enough to have Warner again…There is not a single item on menu that’s not out of this world .from basic pizza to elaborate sushi we tried it all as we are one big family…attentive ,pleasant ..it’s a must for anyone staying in Manuel Antonio ..and I hope you all get Warner !

This was the last stop on our 10 day Costa Rica vacation, and was our favorite. The hotel was so comfortable, the staff so friendly, the food delicious and the amenities abundant. Our waiter, Alexander, was especially attentive whether in the restaurant or poolside! My husband and I both enjoyed relaxing massages from Yessenia in the hotel spa - she was awesome!

Delicious food , ambience and wonderful service. Suelen was our server and she was absolutely lovely and accommodating. She was professional in every way. The restaurant is part of the Shana Beach Resort and it overlooks a forest canopy with ocean bay views.

The location, facilities and staff at the hotel were excellent. There was a very warm welcome by all and tremendous helpfulness. Staff went out of there way to see to your needs. A really special thank you goes to Byron who really helped us with the tours and was very friendly and helpful throughout . Also the manager there was lovely too. All the bar staff were great - especially Warner, Alex and Ronald. Cleaning was f the rooms was good. The disappointment was in the choice of food and the restaurant had little ambience. Tuna with asparagus and tomatoes sounds wonderful but please not canned asparagus! It would have been better with a local veg! Also I asked if my fish could be filleted but that was not possible. I’m sure the burger / fishfingers menu would work with children though. I felt the food was expensive for the quality. But the hotel and staff are truly to be recommended.
