Great location, steps to the beach, nice rooms, very clean, affordable. Having been to Santa Teresa many times and stayed in a few different places, you'll not find a better fit than PSS if you want nice accomodations in a great spot. Simone the owner is great too. You really can't do much better if you are going to ST.

The property appears to be kept up very nicely and felt very relaxing. It was as if we were in the jungle and yet only a stones throw from a beautiful beach. We... More

Located in the maritime zone, the hotel is between the main road of Santa Teresa and the beach. You couldn't ask... More

Spent a week at Pacifica Surf Studios...Santa Teresa is a great little town and if you're surfing then Santa Teresa and Pacifica Surf Studios are perfect for you. I had really good waves all week (and it was supposedly the bad season), the beach is great, the town is really quaint and peaceful. Pacifica was a great place to stay...as... More

My brother and I went to Santa Teresa to learn to surf and found the Pacifica Surf Studios. It's a beautiful hotel right in front of one of the best breaks in all of Costa Rica. Simone was incredibly helpful & accommodating -- not to mention a wonderful teacher. The pool was perfect after a hard morning of surfing and... More
