Fabulous Stay

  • 5 of 5

My family of 5, including 3 adult children over 30 loved the property. The Penthouse was very clean and spacious, and had every necessary amenity. The property had its own restaurant and within walking distance to the beach.

Alex, our Concierge, was very informative and resourceful about places to eat and things to do in the immediate area. He was able to arrange a last minute ATV tour the next morning for all of us. He first met us on our arrival off-hours and again at departure. He was our 24-7 concierge, and we were happy to have him available.

Best stay in Quepos

  • 5 of 5

Just got home from Costa Rica and wish we could go back. We stayed here for 4 nights and were amazed with the property inside and out. It was great to have our own place with all the amenities of home and more.

-The view was even better than the pics. Every wall facing the ocean was a sliding glass door, but it was very private with the way the property faced.

-The walk to the beach was about as short as any resort in the area could possibly be.

-It was very clean and comfortable. Beds, pillows, blankets, everything.

-They had beach towels for us to use.

-They had a really nice document with stuff to do, places to eat, more information upon booking.

-They had a concierge on site within a few minutes for any of our needs. He texted me a few times as well to make sure our stay was perfect and see if there was anything we needed him to book.

When we come back to Costa Rica we'll stay here again.

Alex was great. The cleaning service was great as well. The apartment has spectacular views and the pool is a short walk up the hill. The beach was a little too far and not as nice as Playa Espadilla. My mother-in-law couldn't walk to the beach so we had to take the car. Also, you definitely need a car if you stay here. Otherwise, you are isolated from everything.

With that being said, I highly recommend it.

Amazing view!

  • 5 of 5

The Penthouse was much nicer than we expected. Very spacious with upscale kitchen and bathrooms. Fabulous view and even had a monkey visit our porch one morning. Several mornings the monkeys would entertain us. Quiet beach is only a 5 minute walk down the hill and larger beach is a 30 minute walk. We hope to come back!

Young couple first time in Costa Rica

  • 5 of 5

Our stay was effortless at La Shana. The rental suits 6 very comfortably, 8 including air mattress and couch. The maid was the most complete caretaker I've ever had, and our host took care of us with rides, recommendations, and excursions. Couldn't ask for more- but we did also get in room massages, again set up by our Host.

Great Place to Stay! Can't wait to go back.

  • 5 of 5

I stayed in the Penthouse in August 2016 with my wife, two children (5 & 7), and my parents. It is very well maintained, clean, quiet, and very comfortable. The views from every room are amazing, and each room has its own balcony. There is a short walk down to the beach where we encountered white-faced monkeys along the way multiple times, and my parents saw a sloth as well. The pool at the resort is also nice, and we used it numerous times. If you're looking for a relaxing get away, this is the place to stay. I HIGHLY recommend it, and hope to get there again some day.

In addition to the penthouse being great, the property manager, Alex, was equally great. He is very knowledgeable about the area, and is a GREAT resource for activities in the area. We spent about 15 minutes talking his ear off when he checked us in about what to do, with who, and how much it would cost. After that all I had to do was send a text message to Alex with what we wanted to do, what day we wanted to do it, and how many of us there would be and he set up the rest. He texted back with the information we needed, and each activity went off without a hitch. It could not have been any easier, and the prices for each activity were either the same as advertised on their websites, or in some cases, cheaper. And if you go fishing, Alex will gladly take any fish you keep that you can't eat while you're there (I hope you enjoyed the yellowfin tuna Alex).

Thanks for everything Alex. We appreciate all your help leading up to, and while we were in Costa Rica. I hope we can get down there again someday. Soon.
