Hotel Moana was absolutely amazing. Nestled in Mal Pais away from busy Santa Teresa, the hotel is in the hill overlooking the ocean. This was exactly what we were looking for and could not have been more pleased with the staff and the facilities. When we arrived, we were thrilled when the receptionist told us that we were upgraded to the junior suite. Talk about spectacular views (there are a number of steps up to the room so this is probably not ideal for anyone who has issues with stairs.) The walk up is worth it. Panoramic views of the Pacific, trees filled with monkeys all around you, and a tastefully decorated room awaited us. The room had outdoor and indoor showers - it was pretty cool to rinse off while looking out at the ocean. The bed was comfortable and there was a large sitting area to read/relax. The porch was a great place to watch the phenomenal sunsets. You will most likely see monkeys jumping through the trees. Everyone at the hotel went out of their way to be helpful - from the maintenance men who kept the grounds looking great to the kind lady who checked us in. Make sure you get breakfast in the morning - the huervos rancheros was great. Overall, a lovely place to stay. I would highly recommend it for couples, families, friends!
