I've been twice in the green rooms , the best place in Santa Teresa! In the nature, far from the noise, close to the surf spots, very chill and very nice owner. I definitely recommend it! And there is a pool which is really enjoyable with the weather there.

Dave and Russel are amazing hosts. An oasis from the dusty town and beach clubs but minutes from the beach. Surfed 3 weeks in March and went back for Christmas. I'll definitely be going back. Infinity pool looking into the jungle. Fine cuisine. Great company.

The Green Rooms is perfect! Great quiet location, just a few minutes walk from both the beach and the main street. All the facilities you need - beautiful pool, well equipped kitchen, new clean shower room. We had a room in the pool house, not the main house. You get the privacy of your own place but can spend time... More

The Green Rooms was amazing! Located just up the hill from Playa Carmen (past hostel 7). Most other places to stay in Mal Pais/Santa Teresa are very close to the super dusty main road. The Green Rooms is just a few minutes from shops, restaraunts and markets. Dave the owner is an amazing cook, story teller and jack of all... More

This place is perfect!!! Up a hill, off the main road is an open aired house with the best host we have encountered yet. Upon our arrival, the Host, Dave, showed us around town on the ATV. He set us up with surf lessons, taxis and even had someone arrange to pick us up at the beach down the way... More

No better a place to experience a mixture of surf and jungle, then to stay at the aptly named ‘green rooms’. Set amongst an impressive back drop of rain forest, a sense of tranquillity and serenity is in abundance here. Located on the southern tip of the Nicoya peninsula, the area surround the Green Rooms is a haven of natural... More
