This hotel was fantastic! By far the best customer service I have had! Everyone one was genuinely nice. The beach is a short walk, private, and not too crowded. You will see all sorts of wildlife right at the hotel.

The good thing about this hotel is the location. It situated on a top of the hill and provides amazing view. However, the falls short to Costa Rican experience. The smell of chlorine they use on the property is overwhelming. Only adds more to sterile experience it offers. It does not feel Costa Rican. Very superficial atmosphere on the grounds... More

The hotel is amazing. The winding roads up to the hotel are a little scary, but that is how they end up with such an amazing view. The pros: the room was super comfortable, they upgraded my room when I got there early which I thought was above and beyond. The guy who shuttles people in the golf cart is... More

Shana Hotel is certainly a beautiful hotel. However, when I come to Costa Rica, I look for and want a Costa Rican feel. If I wanted a Tunisian (where the owner is from) or Mediterranean style hotel, I would go to Tunisia or the Mediterranean. Shana is not the place to go if you want an authentic Costa Rican experience.... More
