Relaxing holiday

This is a great hotel. Staff is amazing and very helpful. Breakfast is pretty good but there is some room for improvement: juices, etc. Location was perfect for us as we had our own car. Very nice pool area and a huge room although WiFi was weak on ours.

Lovely surprise after long journey

We booked Shana the night before we arrived as our original accommodation was a disaster. We were on our honeymoon and very distressed about having to find somewhere new to stay so when we arrived at Shana late in the evening after a very long drive we were greeted by absolutely lovely and professional staff. Our room was fantastic and seemed to be newly decorated. The grounds are beautifully kept. The pool is great, the beach is a short walk away. The spa needs a little work to freshen it up but the staff are excellent and their services are great and reasonably priced. The restaurant is a little hit and miss, we had one great dinner but one huge let down of a meal. The cocktails are not the best and seem a tad expensive compared to other hotels we visited. there are some great restaurants a short drive away so I would definitely return to Shana to stay. The staff are brilliant and a real credit to Shana.

Super Urlaubsstart mit Strand und Nationalpark

Super Lage, der Strand neben dem Nationalpark Manuel Antonio in ca. 15 min fußläufig erreichbar. Das Restaurant des Hotels ist relativ teuer, zudem hat uns die Pizza aufgrund des übermäßig vielen Käse nicht so gut geschmeckt. Zum Essen sind wir deshalb vorzugsweise nach Manuel Antonio. Zwar kann man die Strecke nach Manuel Antonio laufen, allerdings handelt es sich hierbei bereits um einen mittelmäßig langen Spaziergang. Für Gehfaule ohne Auto ist das Hotel somit ungünstig. Das Frühstück besteht aus einem Früchtebuffet mit Toast und Marmelade. Zudem kann man sich eines von ca. 5 Essen von der Karte bestellen (das ist in Costa Rica üblich mit den umfangreichen Frühstücksbuffet in deutschen Hotels ist das nicht zu vergleichen). Grundsätzlich ist das Hotel spitze, mit gemütlichen Zimmern und einer tollen Anlage. Das Personal ist sehr hilfsbereit und freunglich. Ich würde jederzeit wieder ins Shana.

Hotel met luxe uitstraling

Goede kamer en ruime badkamer met moderne inrichting. (regendouche met verschillende stralen) Balkon te klein om op te zitten met 4 mensen. Als ik van tevoren had geweten dat er ook kamers waren met een groot balkon dan had ik deze geboekt. Fijn zwembad, goed ontbijt. Vanaf het zwembad en restaurant kun je dieren spotten. Gedurende ons verblijf apen, luiaard en een leguaan gespot. Moeilijk communiceren met personeel van hotel als je geen Spaans spreekt.

Top Hotel

War ein Top Hotel. Schade war nur, dass wir die einzigen Gäste waren. Deshalb war die Stimmung etwas kühl. Aber es gibt nichts auszusetzen.
