If you love Santa Teresa but don’t need all the noise and hustle and bustle at night, this a hidden gem. The view from my suite was amazing to wake up to each day, along with a great comp breakfast…but loved the peacefulness when I needed it

Hotel Moana is like a peaceful paradise. The breakfasts are delicious, the staff are extremely friendly, welcoming and always happy to talk. The view from the restaurant is stunning

The hotel area is amazing with 2 lovely swing beds near the swimming pool and a jacuzzi. We really enjoyed the restaurants ocean view on the top of the hill! Perfect for breakfast or sunset time. The place was quite away from the town, so we enjoyed tranquility

I loved the layout of this hotel … each room is its own little bungalow. The grounds are beautiful with lovely fragrant flowers. The restaurant is at the top of the property and has exquisite views of the ocean. The staff was friendly and helpful and arranged for all of our activities to pick us up at the hotel. When we come back to Santa Teresa, we’re staying at Cielo del Mar again

My fiancée and I visited Hotel Moana for our 5-year anniversary. Santa Teresa and Malpais turned out to be the highlight of a country full of so much beauty, sights and adventure that we’ve experienced over the two years I’ve been working and living here
