The resort amenities are great--a huge, beach-entry pool, Jacuzzi, sunning terraces with loungers, a restaurant, bar and lounge, and even spa services to your condo.
The penthouse has three bedrooms--a primary Master Bedroom, Secondary Master Bedroom, and Guest Bedroom. There is a queen-sized sofa bed, also. Each bedroom has a private bath, and there is also a half bath for the living area. Every room has air conditioning, wifi, cable TV, and a balcony.
Furthermore, the position of the penthouse near the encroaching forest gives it a unique perspective of both ocean and jungle, as well as the most privacy of any condo in the building.

Fabulous condo, setting.
I hesitated writing this as I want this special place to ourselves! Property well managed & concierge Vanessa made a huge difference! Beach one of the best in the area. It is a 10 minute hike down so just barely worked for our 5 yr. old but we used beach & pool as relaxing break to an “active” family vacation.
Disfrutamos mucho del condominio muy lindo y bien equipado
We really enjoyed our stay at the Shana Residences! All of the views from each room were amazing. Monkeys visited us every morning and the kids would sit on the balcony and wait for them to show up. The condo was very spacious and comfortable. I loved the swing on the balcony- it was so relaxing. The pool was very nice and clean and the food at the restaurant was decent too. The walk to Bensainz beach was only 5-6 minutes but be prepared for steps and a small hike. It wasn't too tough as my 6 yr old had no problem handling it. It was worth it too- the beach was calm and so beautiful. Vanessa, the concierge was so helpful setting up tours and dinner reservations. We booked a surf trip on our own and it ended up being a bit of a mess- we should have used Vanessa. Everything through her was hassle free. We were able to explore so much while we were there- Manuel Antonio area has so much to see and do, plus the surrounding beaches we amazing if you just wanted to be a beach bum for the day. We ventured out to Dominical and Uvita to explore the beaches there- I highly recommend it! The only suggestion I made was that the air conditioning was not working properly during our stay and my suggestion was to have it replaced, and Vanessa agreed. We spent a couple nights uncomfortably warm. Hopefully by now it is fixed.
Fantastic vacation rental
My family and I had a great experience in Manuel Antonio and were very happy that we chose to stay at the Shana Residences. The condo is spacious and comfortable. It was furnished with everything we needed during our stay. The deck offers beautiful views of the ocean. We loved being able to walk to the beach and use the pool so easily. We felt safe in this location and found it easy to get around by taxi from the condo. Vanessa, the concierge, was very friendly and helpful. She made planning much easier by answering our questions and helping us arrange activities. Had an excellent stay!
Beautiful Vacation Condo in Manuel Antonio
Our family spent two weeks in this condo recently and it was even better (and larger) than the pictures illustrate. We had excellent service from Nicole and Vanessa (Concierge) was very responsive and helped us plan a super itinerary. Monkeys visited every day, we saw Macaws flying overhead, tons of tropical birds and toucans in the tree outside the unit. Playa Biesanz is a lovely calm beach and we also liked playing in the waves at Playa Espidilla. I would love to return one day for a repeat of our amazing vacation.
Review of our 1 week stay
It is a perfect size for a family of six. I liked the tall ceilings and the ceiling fans. The kitchen size is more than adequate. It is well maintained. The view off the three full and one french balconies is breathtaking and ideal. You view both the Pacific Ocean and the forest, immediately next to the condo, including all the monkeys who live there. The air conditioning worked great, once it was fixed. It only took one day to fix the AC, but I was told we were fortunate that the property manager, Kent, who couldn't have been a nicer person to work with, had a spare part for the AC unit; otherwise, it would have taken at least a few more days to fix, over the New Year's holiday. When we return to Costa Rica in the future, we will attempt to stay here again. Also, the owners graciously refunded us for one night because of the AC. To me, that speaks volumes about the owner.
