The place is a 30m walk away from Playa Santa Teresa which makes it a great place to stay for surfers. We stayed there in October which was a quiet period. Ideal for couples or friends who appreciate having the pool and garden for themselves. Restaurants, supermarkets and bars are only a short walk away and no car is needed.

I had a wonderful time in Santa Teresa together with Simone and loads of new friends! It's the best matching reality to a dream.. Pacifica Surf studios is sited with access through Santa's main road, close to a market and an amazing bar. It's far enough not to hear noises and parties from the more crowded area of the village...

We stayed for 2 weeks in June with our 11mth old son. The location is ideal as it is steps from the ocean, (especially nice on the early morning surf checks), it's off the main road so it is nice and quiet and it's close to the shops, restaurants and grocery stores, The studio rooms are large! Lots of floor... More

If you're coming to Santa Teresa to surf, you've found the right place! Pacifica Surf Studios are on the beach side of the road, nestled in the trees away from the road, and just a few dozen steps to the sand on the south end of Playa Santa Teresa. The lineups at the south end of the beach are mellower... More

We stayed at Pacifica Surf Studios a couple of weeks ago and thoroughly enjoyed it. The studios are in a perfect location for both beach and amenities and they are set around a lovely pool area, surrounded by trees. The studios are equipped with kitchens, hot water and A/C, they are cleaned daily and were a pleasure to stay in.... More

Our first trip to Pacific Surf Studios and won't be our last with a bit of luck! The studios are well styled, and give you a great place to relax after surf lessons - an activity that is both really rewarding and yet utterly frustrating at times. Availing yourself of an instructor makes all the difference We loved having a... More

We stayed at Pacifica a few years ago and enjoyed it so we booked our room there again,,,, we were very disappointed with how run down the place has become... the grounds, the pool, and the cleaning service. There was dog poo everywhere including a few feet from the pool which stayed there for a fews days before anyone decided... More

pacificasurfstudios, Owner at Pacifica Surf Studios, responded to this review

We are very diligent, especially during our peak months; and despite the challenges of studio living in a tropical environment, we ensure our property is maintained and manicured as best of possible. As a reminder, our studios are fully booked during the early year, and no other guests ever mentioned the issues you cited, nor have they in the past... More

Spent a week at the studios ensconced in a well-appointed, clean, safe and surf-induced haze-of-mind courtesy of PSS! The property is seconds from the beach tucked away on a barely perceptible pathway connecting the ocean-front to Santa Teresa's "main street". I was in one of the 4-ground floor studios overlooking the pool. Breakfast with the omnipresent Coco (the owner's charming... More

I just spent a week at Pacifica Surf Studios and I would have stayed longer if I could have! The accommodations were perfect, the location superb and the staff completely welcoming, warm and friendly. The owner, Simone, and manager, Pepe, (oh and lets not forget the sweetest Doberman pinscher I ever met, Coco) were available to answer any and all... More
