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!

This is my 3rd time at Pacifica Surf Studios and it's getting better and better. Mr Simone, Rodrigo and all staff make our stay a spacial time again. The place is very clean and has a wonderful pool very well maintained. Just a few steps from the beach. The atmosphere is great. I went there with my wife and my... More

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

This was a beautiful spot to end our CR vacation. All 8 units face W each sharing a balcony with one adjacent room (though each room has its own screened off half). We practically lived on that balcony, which was nicely furnished with hammock, table and chairs. It looked out at the pool and the trees-- and the howler monkeys... More

Returned for much needed R&R to attack the December waves and sunny beaches. Relieved to see that the quality in accommodation was unchanged since last visit. Added to this trip was a slew of new and sleek boards, along with a bunch of gorgeous puppies. The staff, resident Coco, and surf school instructors were all smiles and happy to see... More

I stayed with my wife and 2 year old daughter for 3 weeks in January and I can safely say it was one of the best holidays we have ever had! The building is stunningly built, set within a beautiful jungle back-drop and next to a very short (about 50 metre) path to the beach. There were regularly howler monkeys... More
