Shana Hotel

Road to Quepos, 300 m downhill from La Mansión Inn, Manuel Antonio, Puntarenas, 60601, Costa Rica

Everything—walls, furniture, paintwork, staff uniforms—is blindingly white, in striking contrast to the lush greens of the hillside grounds, and the service is some of the best in Manuel Antonio. Bathrooms are spacious and modern with massage shower jets, and rooms have sleek touches like oversize tufted headboards, glass desks, and white flat-screen TVs. All have balconies with jungle or partial ocean views. The many upgrades in 2015 included new beds, towels, artwork, and bathrobes. The lovely pool area, with happy hour from 3 to 5, makes up for the fact it's a 10-minute hike to Playa Biesanz. The restaurant highlights Mediterranean dishes. Families or large groups can request the three attaching rooms. In low season, rates are often half price.
