Like the below review we checked into the hotel today and are very disappointed. We are in a lower ground junior suite which cost over £225 per night, with a view of a bush and people stamping around above. Worst part of the room is the crappy lumpy and hard bed. Second is the cheap furniture which is peeling and...

My boyfriend & I stayed at the Shana Resort 3/17-3/20. Really cute boutique hotel. Contemporary bathrooms, nice & simple bedrooms. The rooms are a little small but still nice. I usually go for a more updated luxury room but this was still really nice. The food at the resturant is good and so are the smoothies. Everything tastes very fresh....

The staff was extremely helpful and the manager a gem. My only complaint would be that the bed was hard and the pillows too big so it was hard for me to get a good nights sleep. The hotel is what exactly I expect in Manuel Antonio for the price they charge.

We checked in earlier this evening and the property seems nice enough from the outside, however the Shana Hotel @Manuel Antonio is turning out to be a dissapoitment. For the price point the swimming pool was mediocre with the pool flooring peeling. It's poorly lit making it difficult to use after sunset. Location wise it's way down a steep hill,...
