The Shana Residences consist of 8 luxury condominiums in central Manuel Antonio, and are the nicest accommodations in the Shana Hotel & Residences resort. Not only are they less expensive per bedroom than the resort, but also more luxurious, spacious, and have the best views and location.
The Shana Residences are located in central Manuel Antonio, on Quepos Point--known for it's high-end, sparse development. Because of this, the area is surrounded by rainforest--and therefore, wildlife. It's common to see monkeys, sloths, iguanas, butterflies, toucans, parrots, pelicans and scarlet macaws from your balcony. Furthermore, there are 2 walkable beaches: Playa Bisanz and Playa Espadilla. Playa Bisanz is a quaint, cove beach, accessible via a pleasant 10 minute walk--and has the best snorkeling in the area. Playa Espadilla is the main public beach, is 2 miles long, and culminates in Manuel Antonio national park.
Shana Residences #322 is a 2-bedroom, 2.5 bathroom, 1750-square foot, luxury condominium on the parking level (ie easy access). It is also very private, being on the far side of the resort, and is flanked by the living rainforest. (Watch out for monkeys on your balcony!) There is a fully equipped kitchen, dining area, living area with a flatscreen TV, half bath, and balcony with another dining table.
- King bed
- Sitting area w/sofabed & flatscreen TV

In summary--the Shana Residences bring together all of the features and amenities that people look for in a resort--but are also nicer and more private!
My family and I rented two condos at Shana and we could not have been happier! Kent and his staff went above and beyond to make our stay spectacular. They even accommodated our crazy request for a Birthday cake for my nephew. It was by far, one of the most memorable vacations we have ever had. The Rooms are so beautiful and well stocked with anything you might need. The view from any room is spectacular. They are also only about a 10 minute walk to the ocean. During the walk you may run into monkeys or other lovely animals. I would highly recommend the Shana to anyone interested in staying in Manuel Antonio!
Super! My husband and I spent 2 weeks in Manuel Antonio at a lovely 2 brm condo at a relatively small place surrounded by rainforest with a 90 degree balcony looking west toward the beach and ocean and south toward more ocean and rainforest. The concierge was wonderful and met us right away. He also knew all about the various tours and recommended those according to the best and reliable outfitters. He also helped to pick the best tours for me (I've had a debilitating Illness). We enjoyed the catamaran and mangrove tours. We saw a lots of wildlife everyday; 3 kinds of monkeys, lizards, beautiful birds who made lovely music, heard toads and frogs too. We ate fresh seafood at five different great restaurants , I forget the names but ask the concierge. Biesanz beach was a short 10 minute walk. Everything was well maintained and clean. I highly recommend Manuel Antonio Rental Properties. I plan to use them again in the future. This was my best birthday present ever.
We stayed at this condo for a delightful, refreshing vacation. It is a lovely stroll down to Biesanz beach (bring beach shoes) and a short drive to Manuel Antonio park, which is a spectacular beach for swimming and playing. We ended each beach day with time swimming at the pool, and even met new friends there. Mornings were spent watching the birds with coffee in hand and bird guide on the table. Even though it is not a private property, like a house, you certainly have plenty of privacy with the way it is laid out, and it being an end unit, next to the trees. There are plenty of dishes and everything you need to prepare your own meals, which we like doing, at least for breakfast and snacks. We are a family with three kids and there was room for all of us- though, I wish the sleeper sofa were not in the master bedroom. We had our kids use the master and we used the guest room. The pool is maintained well and the lounge chairs and beds are a relaxing way to watch the sky, the sun, the moon and stars. If you are looking for an easy, accessible, relaxing and reasonably priced place to stay in Manuel Antonio, then this is a great option.
