8/10 Very Good

Great place gor the money.
Run down rooms. Nice service. Lots of wildlife. Great, but hard to get to beach. Great grounds with beautiful plants and animals. Monkey on the balcony every morning. Sloth by the breakfast restaurant, sloth with the baby on the beach. Howler monkey comes to the same tree the sloth is in. Many birds come to that tree too. Pool is ok, but hot tub is cold and useless. Breakfast was good. Over all it's a great place for the price. Get the jungle view room if you want to see monkeys.

Parking and navigation on the property is tight and very limited. The power went out during our stay and our air conditioner took several hours to repair.

Monkeys!
Our room faced directly into the jungle. At around 4pm a troop of capuchin monkeys would play and eat these pods in the trees. Awesome entertainment!

Relaxed beach hotel
We stayed at Shana by the beach at the end of our tour so we could chill out and relax. The hotel rooms we stayed in (moved from studio jungle room to superior sea view room) had very comfy big beds, good big showers, nice decor and clean. We enjoyed watching the cheeky monkeys jumping on the hotel balconies! Just remember to close and lock your balcony doors when you go out. Food and drinks we found to be very expensive overall for good but not great food or drinks. We enjoyed as a result (like many others) the 3-6pm daily happy hour! We liked and used the pools and gym (had a good range of equipment), and had a spa treatment each whilst there which was good, quite pricey but much more palatable as 40% off at the time. The near by beach is small but lovely, with local, lower priced and stronger cocktails served and local fresh, tasty food! Only negatives is the steep hill the hotel is on, and the price of food and drinks. The staff overall were friendly and helpful.
