All reviews pasta lobster fresh fish ceviche shana hotel beach hotel recommend highly perfect food playa biesanz costa rica beautiful hotel happy hour our waiter visit manuel antonio best pizza pura vida great restaurant
The staff & service here is great and I wish the best for them. However, don't get the sushi! It's clear that sushi is not a popular choice here as the fish came browning, not fresh, and even with a little piece of salmon skin...left on the salmon. I tried to make myself finish but decided it's not worth it!
The best food to order here in my opinion are the pastas, pizzas, and the breakfast(till 10am)
The pool and lounge areas are excellent with a long and fun happy hour.More
We visited some restaurants in Manuel Antonio during our stay, but at the end we decided to have our lunches and dinners only at the Shana restaurant because that was more comfortable for us as we were staying at the Shana By The Beach. Excellent...food, excellent service and very nice and helpful staff. So why we should look around if we were amazed about everything . Some nights we ordered our food in our room and we enjoyed the views from our balcony. That made us save some money to not take any transportation, also the prices were better here than outside and of course the food quality was much better.More
The design of the place itself is more reminiscent of a noisy backyard than a pleasant restaurant. At eight o'clock in the evening and the last bathers came and went, with calm children, the place was free of all intimacy. The equipment is worn and...poor. The waiters were tense. We came here for dinner from a nearby hotel, we chose the place specifically because it got excellent value. The waiter specifically recommended the two-person seafood, which had to be waited for almost 1 hour, while guests were seated with only four tables. Part of the food came cold, it was weak, the potatoes were made of pureed powder, and the vegetables were raw. Only positive thing, the Wine offer was good, and the wine was cold, as it should be. It was really a big disappointment, never again.More
We stayed at the Shana hotel few days, so we had the chance to try most of the food. Fish was our favorite but the pizza was also very good. Breakfast was included in room rates(free) and it was excellent.
Like most travelers, we love good food and we were pleasantly surprised to find we were staying at the place in Manuel Antonio with the BEST food! Everything I tried on the breakfast menu was spectacular. You can get traditional galla pinto or some other...favourites (omelettes, pancakes). I am still dreaming about the shrimp pasta I had for dinner one night. It was so nice to just breathe in the mountain air and look out into the greenery. What made it all better was the amazing hospitality and care of the staff. I also appreciated the COVID precautions they had in place- they were simple and easy to follow (mask when you come in, hand sanitizer available, and a wrist temp check).More
Amazing meal and ambiance at Shana hotel, great menu and service. My boyfriend and I had been walking to Biesanz Beach and we started looking for a place to eat. The entrance of the hotel was quite interesting. The pizza was very good , they...do have happy hour from 3pm to 6pm with a DJ. I highly recommend this place , and we stay at Shana if I’ll come back to Costa Rica .More
I have now stayed at the Shana Hotel twice and this past trip was welcomed warmly into the Shana Lounge Pool Bar. During Happy Hour almost all drinks are 2 for 1...its an amazing deal if you are traveling with a companion. But, if by...chance, you don't like the same drinks then it's...TWO for YOU!! And, some days including weekends, there's a DJ mixing some upbeat sounds as you sit and watch the sunset!!!More
We ate there several times and we were always satisfied and happy. The staff was very attentive, always smiling and offered excellent service. The food either fish. pizza or meat all was perfect. We will go back for sure next time we visit Manuel Antonio.
