My husband, 21 year old daughter and myself had a great stay at the Moana Lodge. We lloved every minute here, from the delicious breakfasts every morning to relaxing on the swinging beds by the pool. The owners, Aiden and Vickie were so nice and helped us out with anything we needed. We were bummed about them not serving dinner the nights we were there, but they contacted us ahead of time and told us that they were not going to do dinners for a couple weeks because things were so slow for them right then. They graciously said that we could opt out of our stay and they would understand, but we wanted to still stay there and we are glad we did.
We only stayed in the standard room, which was still nice(1 queen bed and single bed) with bathroom, but next time we will get in one of the suites which are cool. They are decorated real nice and the view you would get from the suites would be great of the ocean. Our view was the trees and pretty plants, located near the pool which was great. And those swinging beds by the pool are the best---so relaxing!
The big plus for Moana Lodge is the location. During the dry season there is lots and lots and lots of DUST and DIRT and this place is located back off from the road where you do not get that dust flying everywhere-we were glad about that.
I do want to mention the help at the lodge-from the nice pregnant girl(who is due any time), the server at breakfast time, and the pool guy---they were all so very nice and made our stay really great.
We have NOTHING negative to say about Moana Lodge.
