About the property

2 bed / 2.5 bath, Sleeps 6, ocean-views, walk-to-beach, full resort amenities

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.

Master bedroom:

- King bed

- Sitting area w/sofabed & flatscreen TV

- Private bath

- Private balcony

Guest bedroom:

- King bed (converts to 2 singles)

- Private bath

- Private balcony

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!

Wonderful condo with a nice view and wildlife

  • 5 of 5

We just spent 4 nights here with our two teenage boys and really enjoyed it. They were able to have their own room with twin beds which is sometimes hard to find. Condo has everything you need but only small mini-markets are located in MA. For larger grocery runs, you need to go down the hill to Quepos (biggest grocery store is back by the highway). From the balconies, we saw monkeys and birds every morning and even a sloth from the pool deck. There is a small beach just a 10 minute walk away as well. Concierge and other staff were very helpful.

Very nice property

  • 5 of 5

This condo was spacious and beautiful! We enjoyed spending a lot of time on the balcony. As others have said - please be aware that the property is hilly. It is an incline from the pool back to the property and the walk to the beach is fine going down but very strenuous on the way back. Since we had a car, we decided to drive down and park right at the path which shortened it some for us.

The only complaints I would have are that the Jacuzzi was not really hot - it was the same temp as the pool. Since the nights were cooler it would have been nice for it to be more heated. And while the restaurant was good, it was pricey. And fyi - if you are staying in the condos you do not get the complimentary breakfast. however, we found the breakfast to be reasonable at $10/pp. We ate lunch another day - two pizzas and a sandwich and it was close to $70.

Would definitely stay here again though.

Wonderful property and location

  • 5 of 5

The home is giant, the pool is wonderful as well as the food at the restaurant (albeit expensive). Howler and white-faced monkeys, toucans right out the patio doors and a, more or less, private beach down the street. It's a wonderful oasis. Vanessa and the housekeeping were also tremendous during our stay, as was the entire staff at Shana. Highly recommended.

Lovely Place

  • 5 of 5

This condo exceeded my expectations. Lots of room, great location and amenities. We found it to be the perfect jumping off point for Manuel Antonio and the Quepos area. The manager was responsive and provided lots of information.

The wildlife watching just from the patio was amazing. Evening monkey visits, morning sloths, and more birds than we could count. We will return.

One of the most Beautiful Places in Costa Rica

  • 5 of 5

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.
