Supernice place! 200 meters from the ocean and worldclass beachbreaks. Rooms are big and comfy, and the hammock on your balcony are a big plus. Right above by the road there´s a lovely little bakery with cheap and supergood newbaked bread and smoothies. Simone, Pepe and the other guys are superfriendly and very helpful in whatever you may need.

Pacifica surf studios was an excellent choice for our visit to Santa Theresa! We had a great room with a comfy bed, good a/c, and a very functional kitchen that allowed us to cook the majority of our meals. We also enjoyed lounging by the pool when we needed a break from the sand and saltwater. After comparing local hotels... More

I've never had an experience in all of my travels where I was so sincerely treated like family, while at the same time had my privacy so well respected. Simone, Pepe, Chino, Monica and of course Coco are now family. My wife and I stayed for 8 days and did the surf lessons for 5 days. There were 4 people... More

What a horrible stinky place to rent. It's a fine location, close to surf and beach, but to come home to a room that smells from the dirty A/C ventilation, the bathroom smelled of sewer, and they only gave you a sheet to sleep in, flat pillows, and the bathroom rug was torn and tattered, not that that mattersmuch to...

We had an amazing time at Pacifica! We stayed for 8 nights in late December 2010. The location was excellent – right on the beach, near small cafes and a grocery, but felt very private and was quiet. Pacifica is not a big hotel; it felt very personal and we met several others staying there and shared meals, drinks, and... More

Awesome spot that's super close to the best beach in town. My surf instructor, Cristian, was the best. Really took the time to teach me all aspects of surfing and totally improved my skills. Would highly recommend Pacificas to stay and learn to surf.

If you are looking for a romantic and quit place to stay that is just 25 meters from the beach go to Pacifica. You won't regret it. The place has a pool and the studios are equipped with hammocks, king size beds, a safe, airconditioning, van and have a big closet. It is very nicely decorated. You can also rent... More
