10/10 Exceptional

Makanas is an amazing place to stay in Santa Teresa! Tyler has done a wonderful job with the property and is very helpful with locals tips and recommendations. We got an ATV rental in town for the five days we were here and it was awesome. The perfect (and very fun) way to get around and explore. The breakfast was included at Makanas and was a delicious and simple Costa Rican plate. The rooms were up to date, cute, clean, and air conditioned. The beach was beautiful and 30 seconds from the front door. I’d highly recommend staying here as a home base for exploring Santa Teresa!

The bungalows are very peaceful, clean and cozy and the location was absolutely perfect! We loved every minute of our stay there and have already recommended Makanas to our friends and family. Tyler was an excellent host and provided us with great recommendations about what to do in town: where to go, what to see, what to eat and how to get around and make the best of our trip. He was incredibly hospitable, attentive to us and made our stay wonderful. Lacie makes a great breakfast, as well! Highly recommended.

I loved the king bed bungalow.The breakfast was a lovely start of my day. Two coures presented perfectly, a taste sensation. So much food, no need for lunch! Gulia and Simon truly care about your experience here and were very helpful arranging transport for me, as I only know a handful of spanish. Great dinner options a short walk away too but away from the busyness of town. Definitely coming back!

4/10 Fair

Unfortunately this was a very disappointing experience. The bed sheets and bath towels were clearly not washed from the last person that was there, the toilet and sink were completely dirty and not to mention the fan that had a large amount of dust. The bathroom door would not close and we had to keep it open the whole time. I booked the hotel because it was a 9.2 rating and this rating was not even closed to what I got, personally I would not recomend this hotel.

The best location in Santa Teresa. In nature and only a few steps from the beach. With the most welcoming hosts. A delicious breakfast each morning and great food for dinner at the Cantina.

8/10 Very good

Our host was really lovely and the breakfast was excellent! Location is a bit close to the road and therefore a bit dusty. Cabins are a tight fit for a family of four - perfect for two. Beach is a short walk, easy to access for sunrise and sunset. Swimming right at the beach access is rocky but again it’s a short walk to sandy sections. Nearby Playa Hermosa is exceptional!
