I had a perfect stay at Canaima. I chose to travel solo and can't imagine a better place to spend some alone-time than on a beautiful hill, surrounded by wildlife whilst hearing the waves meet the shore a couple hundred meters away. The staff was incredible. They are caring and warm and make you feel at home instantly.

We stayed two nights here having found it and booked the night before, and it turned out to be a highlight of our trip. Beautiful rooms with amazing attention to detail, it was hard to think of anything that could be improved. The hotel is slightly up the hill, so nice and quiet, while still being within easy walking distance... More

This was hands down one of the best vacations of my life. I would not want to stay anywhere else in Santa Teresa other than Canaima Chill House. Our room was right by the pool, with a Jacuzzi and all. We would listen to music and submerge ourselves in the beautiful jungle. Juan took care of us every step of... More

I could disappear in the mountains of Santa Teresa, one with the jungle life, while still being a short walk away from the most Epic Surf break! Surf morning & evening sessions with left & right break, off shore morning wind and breath taking sunsets, rainbows LIFE all around you while basking in the luxury of this beautiful hidden tree...

I cannot say enough good things about Canaima. The location, room, staff - everything - was wonderful. Yes - there is quite a hill to walk up, but it's really not that bad. If you can walk and are active... You can walk up the hill. Or if you don't like to or can't walk - a 4WD vehicle is... More

Found canaima online so it was a random pick. And the best I could have made! After booking i looked at some of the reviews. Some people were opposed to the location uphill, I was pleasantly surprised as it is not much more then a equally pleasant stroll and it gets you away from the bustle of Santa Teresa Centre,...

We were staying at Canaima for 12 nights in one of the large rooms and have nothing but good things to say. Very airy room with nice decor and a small but sufficient kitchen area. Great with the swingbed on the veranda for naps and relaxation. Superfriendly staff, at the front desk as well as housekeeping. The owner Juan Carlos... More

I just can say everything was perfect the staff, the room, the common area... if you just want a chill place to rest and enjoy the nature you have to stay there. You have the feeling you would be living on a tree house. One of the nicest places I've ever been would recommend totally to all my family and... More

First of all, the staff was awesome and super helpful prior to arriving as well as while we were there (I literally emailed them a million times). They helped book activities, ATVs, cabs and recommended dining spots. The hotel was just really cool... a great vibe, a refreshing pool, large deck relaxation area (complete with hot tub), howling monkeys and... More

Our many thanks to Juan Carlos, Juan Fernando, and Marta for a wonderful week long vacation at Canaima Chill House. Our family of 6 including 3 children (ages 8, 12, and 13), and grandma (age 75) stayed here this past week.
