Good 6,0
Not deserving current rating
The reception of hotel looks very cheap ... with no enough space to relax and be welcomed, more like bus station... The reception staff was ok but very indifferent. The rest of services (restaurant and buggy drivers) were very nice and friendly.

Enjoyed our stay here
The service at this hotel was amazing. All the staff were so friendly and helpful. The pool was a great place to lounge by and swim in and the private path down to the beach was another huge plus. The rooms were also big and spacious.

Truly Pura Vida!
Outstanding, beyond beautiful, this picturesque resort turned in to home while we were there. From breakfast every morning with Carla and the amazing staff at the restaurant who catered to our every request to Alejandro who helped with all our other requests from Couples massage (get the coffee scrub). This staff is amazing and we had plenty of guest from monkeys who watched the sunset with us from our balcony to sloth’s sitting in the tree next to us during breakfast. Could not have been happier n

Very Accommodating Staff and Wildlife Views
Shana by the Beach was a really cool hotel. Their view and access to the beach is something other hotels in the area don't offer. The beach is small, and it's in a bay, so there the waves are very small, but it was still really nice to swim in once you swim past the rough shells. The pool was very big and nice. The staff was the best asset. They were extremely welcoming, kind, and informative. They really went out of their way to accommodate us. The room was large and had an impressive jungle view, but a few small details were lacking. The floors had a bit of a dirty appearance and had some bizzare stains on them, the furniture was very minimal, and the shower had some stains and felt less than pristine. That being said, I'm very particular and none of that bothered my wife at all. Walking to nearby restaurants is a challenge given the lack of sidewalks and sketchy roads, so be sure to plan on driving or taking a cab the few blocks into the town. The restaurant on site was pricey, but the view of the jungle, the ocean, the monkeys, toucans, and sloths was really fantastic. We'd definitely stay again.

overall was a pleasant experience. the service and hospitality of all the staff was wonderful. room was clean. would've loved for the water in the shower to be a little hotter. also there is no gift shop so if you need sunscreen or toiletries, you'll have to go into town a little to get them.

Place is a unique property. Beautifully kept and fantastic service. Based on what I had seen online and maybe being spoiled by the views at la Mariposa I had believed we would be looking out at the Pacific from the room or at least the pool. However, in keeping with the spirit of preservation the trees blocked any such view. Have to believe other rooms enjoyed that vantage.The walk down to the beach wasn't too bad and in a week in Costa Rica they clearly had the best breakfast.
