    A Beautiful Hotel with Beach Access

    Shana by the Beach is a great hotel. It's a ways down the peninsula, so it's hard to access on windy roads in the dark. It's also not walking distance to the Manuel Antonio/Quepos city centers nor to the National Park. However, there is easy transportation options, and the hotel can help you arrange those. There are two great pools on-site, and the balconies overlook a lush landscape. We spent part of an afternoon sitting out here watching the rain, and it felt magical. It's worth upgrading from a standard room to a deluxe or superior room. The open-air restaurant (and corresponding room service) is fantastic, with kind wait staff following COVID protocols in a lovely environment. The food is tasty, and we ended up having 3 meals here over the course of the 3 days we stayed here. There is a nearby beach, but it's a bit of a hike up/down stairs, and it was really crowded when we went.

    Once in a lifetime experience monkeys on balcony

    Amazing experience! We saw monkeys, sloths, parrots, and all types of birds every day. We had squirrel monkeys and white face monkeys come on our balcony every day and we got to feed them. Once in a life-time experience. We also got a chance to go to the beach every day with a private access, which was really nice. Overall an amazing experience.

From dusk till dawn we were surprised and trated like royalties from the bartender Didier to the great food options,the cleanliness of the rooms and spatial distribution to the night auditor Alex was an incredible and very positive experience.
