Quiet hotel, great location
Hotel was in a nice location and very quiet, nicely maintained. Room could have been cleaner and the mattress was extremely firm, past point of comfort. Room was huge and staff were very accommodating.

Canopy Dreams
Hotel Moana is tucked up in the canopy just outside the dusty town of Santa Theresa. Easy access to town but away from it all. The view from the restaurant is worth the price of admission, and the food and service there were excellent. The staff was accommodating and quick to respond. Decor is jungle chic, rooms are comfortable, spacious and clean. Outside shower was great for rinsing after a dusty morning run or swimming all day at nearby Playa Carmen. If you have trouble climbing stairs, this is not the place for you. Nothing is on the level! But for any who are game, you will be rewarded with shady canopy full of birds and spectacular view from the way high up open air restaurant.

The Moana is a beautiful hotel with amazing staff and views. We upgraded to a room with a view and it was worth every penny. The sunsets from our balcony were unreal. The room was very large and in good shape. The restaurant at the hotel is great with equally amazing views. We ate there quite a bit. A couple of draw backs is it's a bit of a hike into town if you don't have a car and the stairs up to the rooms and restaurant are a bit of a hike especially with bags.

Two nights in Mal Pais
I was inadvertently put in a Standard Room (no tv, very average), but was then upgraded to the Honeymoon Suite at top oh hill (equisite). View and room was to die for. Adjoining hillside restaurant was beautiful with amazing views too. My chief complaint is it is far from town (long walk) and the Sandy beaches. I had a car so was able to drive up to banana beach and relax at some a very nice beach, albeit not of the same class as were I was staying.

It could be amazing, but falls short
A beautiful, isolated hotel- that is ideal for relaxing, however the lack of a good restaurant and simple touches, such as complementary water on your arrival, results in the typical overpriced hotel mini bar purchase or commuting to Santa Teresa to eat. Restaurants in Santa Teresa are fantastic and so I would simply stay there as we did earlier in the break rather stay at Moana. If only this could offer a decent food offerings with it's view it would be unrivalled.
