Travelled here in 2012 (a few years back), amazing location in a middle of jungle yet only 10 min walk to the beach. The camp has everything you need; fans, pool, fast internet, drinking water. Dave was a great camp owner, and very knowledgeable about the area. Surf was amazing too. Would definitely recommend if you're in Costa Rica

You certainly can't go wrong booking your stay with Russ and Dave. I traveled to Costa Rica by myself in Dec/Jan and I very pleased with my accomodations. The location is a bit off the beaten path, but it's a short 5 minute walk to the market, beach, stores, etc. It's hard not to like Dave and Russ, as they... More

This place is beautifully tucked away in the jungle with a river running beside it which will take your breath away. The owner David brown is the most helpful with any questions regarding travel arrangements, tours within the area, and anything that he can help you with. Very chilled atmosphere with nature surrounding you and the beach only 5 minutes... More

What can I say about the Green Rooms? This place has the kind of vibe that keeps you coming back. I can say that because i've been back twice now and even after the second time I still just know that I'll be back again one day. What sets this place apart is that it has a communal feeling and...

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
