The location was superb; the apartment is very spacious if not too spacious and the view from the balcony is nice. The best thing about this place is the hidden beach down the road from the hotel.
The lack of service; no one welcomed us except the security guard who simply gave us our key. Not even in our second night of stay even when we requested to see our conceirge. There was no wifi nor a phone; we struggled to find the switch to the fan since the ac doesnt do much; money was supposed to be withdrawn upon arrival but was withdrawn a month in advance. We had to get more towels from the shana hotel reception since our conceirge didnt even bother doing his job even after we asked for him to show up 3 times and he actually said: "yes ill be there in the afternoon"..
Lots of space, clean, nice environment, great swimming facilities.
The only place where you don't have wifi. Very difficult to find, the ocean club is part of the shana resort but the services are treated separately, the ocean club serviced are poor.
Wonderful condo for our family of 5; including three young adult children in their 20's. Plenty of room for all of us with comfortable bedrooms each with individual balconies, spacious living room, great kitchen and large outdoor patio with a table to accommodate all of us for meals as well as an additional sitting area. We were greeted by dozens of squirrel monkeys outside our patio when we arrived, and we could hear the howler monkeys in the distance. Throughout our stay we loved sitting on the balcony in the early morning and evenings to see the variety of birds and hear all of the rain forest sounds. We could also hear the surf and see the ocean from several balconies. The location to Manual Antonio Park and the beach was amazing (less than 5 min. away), along with great dinner places. The condo was immaculate, clean and modern; leather couches and large bedrooms with beautiful bathrooms. Separate air conditioning units for each room kept the condo comfortably cool at all times and everyone could adjust the temperatures to their own liking. The best meal on our trip throughout Costa Rica was at the restaurant next to the pool - quite a delightful surprise and a killer ocean view. We were thoroughly pleased with the whole experience. We highly recommend this property; so glad we saved our money and avoided the large expensive hotels. We will return and look forward to recommending this property to others without any reservations.
The only criticism was the lack of consistent internet -- but this did not deter from our experience one bit.
Close to Manuel Antonio; Close to places to eat; beautiful condo and pool. Love the beaches near by; Diego was very attentive. Unit was beautifully decorated! Loved it.
No Wi-Fi in the unit. Had to go to pool area.
Overall, the staff at the hotel (not condos) was very nice and responsive. The walk to the private beach was interesting and the small private beach was wonderful.
I think that the property manager (Diego) was missing in action...I saw him once when we arrived. The room was not ready because, according to Diego, it was being cleaned...he attempted to give us an alternate which did not have as nice an ocean view. We can back when the room had been "cleaned" and there was an awful smell of fish mixed in with an overuse of cleaning fluids. Diego explained that a family of Chinese had been cooking fish etc. he should have provided equivalent or better accomodations but we did not complain since we just wanted to enjoy our vacation. However, the smell declined but was present for out two day stay. Also, the WiFi did not work and one of the toilets did not flush properly...Overall it was not a good expereince. We will not be coming back to your facility. Our three day stay at Tulemar was terrific...you could learn a lot from them...
Apartment was very nice.
WIFI only available in restaurant area.
The condo was very spacious and comfortable. There were two large bedrooms, kitchen, living room, 2 full bathrooms and a half bath. The balcony might be our favorite part of the condo. It was at the level of the tree canopy and we saw lots of birds, monkeys and even toucans. The howler monkeys were very vocal. The common laundry facility is open only between 8 and 4pm. The cleaning crew did it for us and left the clothes folded in our room.
Just some minor things that can be improved: - There was no baking tray although there was a nice oven. - Our blender did not work and there was no way to get a replacement till the next day. - It is strange that the bathrooms had no holder for toilet paper or rod for towels. The whole thing about the condo being with Shana Hotel was odd. We were told that we could use the Shana Hotel reception if we needed assistance, but it was a mixed experience. We were treated as outsiders. Two of the staff were very nice, but the one who seemed to be the manager was outright rude. I would never reserve a room at Shana, but I would come back to the Condo again.
Spacious. Close to quiet beach. Pool and pool area was very nice.
Full price was charged at time of booking. We cancelled a couple of nights within free cancellation period and still haven't received our refund 2 months later. Booking.com finally stepped in to refund us directly. Very disappointing since we actually enjoyed our stay at the condo. Hopefully they'll be more responsive to others in the future.
We like the size of the condo and it is quite new. We are on the second floor which have partial ocean view. The ground floor would have no ocean view at all. From the balcony, we saw tucans and many other kinds of birds and also monkeys. We also like the short walk to the little beach. The pool is also nice and clean. Love that they provided a blender which we used a lot to make fruit shakes with the ice from the ice maker of the fridge.
There is no laundry machine at the unit. You have to call to arrange to get your laundry done for free. Be aware that they house cleaner who does not speak English would only be there from 8-4pm. You also need to call them for room cleaning service or else nothing is done. The pool area has little shade. The remote controls are all missing batteries. So, we couldn't turn on any of the fans especially the ones at the balcony. So, it was not comfortable to sit out there for a long period of time. They should provide a baking pan, colander and a can opener. I assume that they would probably provide them to you if you call.
very spacious condo, good kitchen equipment, parking, close to NP
Missing information about all services, extremely expensive restaurant
A lovely complex, a short walk to a little beach which had no-one on it when we visited, further from the main beach but only a couple of mins by car or taxi. The condo was great, a little luxury at the end of our trip
There's no sign stating Ocean Club at the entrance, just Shana Hotel, which is the hotel that shares the complex, so we did have a a little difficulty finding it. It would be advisable for the management to inform guests that it's located within the Shana complex
Spacious, 2 bedrooms, nice view,
master bedroom air conditioning didn't work properly, said would be fixed, NEVER DID! Offered lower condo with no views. Bathroom windows had animal feces around window ledge. Towels got smaller by the day. Be prepared to take taxis everywhere, and walk up and down big hills to beach and pool!
I would NOT recommend going to Manuel Antonio. This has nothing to do with the Ocean Club which is a nice facility. The area is "touristy', you might as well be in Dollywood or Destin. The park is quite small, I have been in zoos that were "wilder". Costa Rica is almost overdone, it's like Florida with monkeys. If you want a wilderness rainforest experience, it won't be in Costa Rica.
The room was beautiful but there system is so unorganized.
I was met in the parking lot by some kid who looked like he just finished surfing and he wanted me to give him all of my information I wasn't even sure that he worked for the facility. We had old soap in our bathroom and we asked for it to be cleaned as it was obviously there for a long time and they still did not clean it. The so called concierge was only available by phone or email and there was no phone available and the wifi connection did not work well. We were lost for over an hour trying to find the place since the hotel name is Shani which is not part of the Ocean Club. The people at the hotel were very helpful it seemed that they were used to having disgruntled clients from the ocean club which the share the pool and common area. They said that we would have ammenities that were not provided. We were told by the concierge who the hotel reached for us that he booked our party for parasailing and when we arrived they knew nothing about our group. It was a horrible experience and put a big damper on our vacation.
Close to nature nice pool restaurant staff and food quality
far on foot from stores and other meal options
Great location, excellent friendly staff, pool right near restaurant - great for kids. Spacious rooms. Definitely rent a car and check out the beaches to the South they are beautiful and less crowded than M.A.
Spotty wi fi
Loved our apartment here - huge, fully appointed, comfortable, close to the park, beaches, great pool, great restaurant. Overlooked the jungle with monkeys coming by in the evenings, lots of birds.
Couldn't find it because its name is actually the Shana Hotel - very odd. The amenities of the hotel should be better advertised within the suite. Would be nice to have had a view of the ocean.
The location of the resort was amazing, with views from the balcony across the jungle to Biesanz Beach. The drive to Manuel Antonio Park for hiking, nature viewing and swimming was just minutes. There were also many restaurants for dinner a short drive away. We enjoyed the walk through the jungle to swim at Biesanz Beach. The resort itself was beautiful with a great pool and restaurant. We rented a condo unit so meals were not included but the one meal we had at the restaurant was great. Our unit was well equipped for a family of 4 adults and one toddler. We had a vehicle so the fact the resort is a ways from town was not an issue but it would be a bit of a strenuous uphill walk without a car.
Comfortable rooms, very spacious, kitchen well equipped. Security was great. Pool was clean. Clean sheets and towels. New construction. Friendly staff.
Washer and Dryer missing. Dirty floors. Lumpy beds. Locks on cabinets and doors did not work. Wi-fi did not work for most of the days. No concierge service. Plan your vacation/days before arrival.
This condo was a pleasant surprise. Our 3 children who have traveled to many destinations in the world were impressed and thoroughly enjoyed the residence, swimming pool and nearby beach snorkeling and swimming. The unit is spacious (2 bedrooms, 2.5 baths, family room/kitchen), newer, with 3 balconies and great ocean views. John, who is the manager of the property, helped us arrange transportation and tours in Costa Rica at very good rates. Housekeeping was available every day and the kitchen was great to cook our meals. This was a fun and relaxing place. This was our best family hassle-free vacation. We highly recommend staying at this place.
Internet service was unavailable during our stay, which was getting fixed. We were able to go to Shana hotel, which is next door and use their free wifi. So the wifi was a non-issue.
we had an amazing time at ocean club! I hope to be back there some day.
