Best spot in Mal Pais/Santa Teresa
We can't say enough about this place. You couldn't ask for more. The owner and his staff create a wonderful environment for rest and relaxation. The breakfast is second to none. The vistas are gorgeous. The pool area is stunning and the rooms are inviting and cozy. Set back off of the road, Moana give you a break from the hullabaloo of Mal Pais/Santa Teresa. There is also a really nice restaurant on the hillside above the accommodations that provide excellent food, cocktails and amazing sunsets.

A slice of Paradise!!
The newly managed Moana really is a slice of paradise admidst the dusty roads of MalPais/Santa Teresa. Set back from the road, this place offers tranquility within beautiful grounds. Lush vegetation surrounds each bungalow providing seclusion and the ability to watch nature. A true escape. The pool and terrace is lovely with ample lounging capabilities. Set your alarm for an amazing breakfast with accompaning views that will take your breath away. A great place to also enjoy the best sunset John, Cindy and the Moana staff know how to entertain and provide expert local knowledge as well as facilitating peace and relaxation. Our accomodation was top notch with very comfortable beds, linens and towels. Sparkling clean and cozy. We highly recommend this place for your stay in the area . And if Moana is booked, head to the hotel restaurant Tues-Sat for sunset cocktails and/or dinner. You won't regret it!

The owner of this property was so nice, and also an amazing cook. The restaurant on site provides a free breakfast that rivaled most breakfasts I have ever paid for. We also ate dinner there one night and that was also delicious! The ocean view from the restaurant is beautiful. The rooms were clean and comfortable, the pool area is nice, and the property is down the road just far enough to get away from the craziness of the downtown area, but close enough drive there in just a few minutes.
