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

I just got back from my stay in Santa Teresa Costa Rica. I stayed at Pacifica Surf Studios for the second time, and it just gets better and better. They have the most friendly staff, excellent local knowledge, and most important the best surf spot out RIGHT OUT FRONT! Perfect for a surfers vacations. We scored excellent waves the whole... 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

We stayed from the end of October till a little bit into November! It rained a little everyday but the spot was wonderful. Simon the owner really goes out of the way to make you feel at home. I recommend getting the surf lessons if you are a beginner surfer. They want you to learn and make sure you have... More

First time trip to Santa Teresa and we love this beach! A short walk (200m) down a seemingly private trail reveals the beautiful white sand beach, a nice welcoming with Howler monkeys escorting us the way in grand fashion. The accommodations boasted some very effective curtains, we managed to sleep in 2 hours past normal.. and good thing too. This... More
