The best asset of this property is its location, less than a block to the beach and just a block away from two of the most delicious cafes- Zwart Cafe and Olam. So, you do not need car or bike while staying. The upstairs studios were very cozy and confortable, with a balcony with enough room for practicing yoga (2... More

I most concede the location - beach and supermarket wise - is great. The pool needed maintenance I ended cleaning it from leaves, dead insects and other trash myself so my kids could swim in it. My rating would had been higher but there was an incident where I was mistreated as a customer, and felt almost as a criminal... More

This place is just as good as it can be if you are looking for a great surfing experience. The place is literally 50 mts from the beach, in the morning you just grab your board, walk 50 mts and start surfing. Security is there 24/7 and the place is clean and very well maintained. Simone is a great owner... More

If you are looking for an amazing accommodation spot super close the beach, very comfortable setup and amazing hammock right outside your door this is the place to be. The most helpful owner and receptionist ever, they made sure we were taken care of with any issues we had. You can also rent boards, atvs and bikes from them and... More

I booked a studio here for the end of January 2015. I sent the deposit asked for on October 1, 2014. In Mid October I was diagnosed with breast cancer. When I found out my course of treatment I realized that I would be unable to go to Costa Rica during the time I had planned. I wrote to Simon... More

We've just spent a week here and we had an amazing time. Everybody was very friendly and we were treated with a lot of generosity. It's very close to the beach; they offer a lot of things to do and have the best surf teacher and SUP guides. We will be back.

A friend and I stayed here in 'green season' and the rooms were $80/night for 3 nights, which is the most I would be prepared to pay for this accommodation, especially out of season. Plus points are the location, which is perfect for access to local facilities and more importantly the surf/beach; the size of the rooms is also good,... More

Pacifica is just great! Rates are reasonable, you are 200 yards to the beach, the pool is clean and warm, rooms are cleaned daily, all of the staff is accommodating - it's like one big family. Should you need a companion...Coco, the resident doberman, will accompany you on your walks!! We will definitely go back again next year!

Unfortunately we were unable to avoid staying at this location because we showed up in santa teresa over New Years and every single bed, hammock, villa, house, hotel room, bed and breakfast, etc was reserved. The place was packed!!! We thanked our lucky stars when there was a cancellation at this hotel. However, when speaking with the staff at check-in,... More
