Stayed here a few days with the family. Really helpful staff and nice rooms. Close to the beach and far enough from the main road to not be too noisy at night. We stayed four people in one of the main floors of the lodges. AC was super quiet and effective!

The place is great. The apartments are very pretty, comfortable and have a reasonable price. The pool is awesome, there is a huge mango tree and if you want they'll even grab mangos for you! Its owned by a group of italian people that are extremely nice. Favorite hotel !

The owners of this villa are super nice and helpful. The pool and the grounds are beautiful, and it's centrally located in Santa Teresa. Just a 3 minute walk to the beach. You are in the rainforest, so there are strange noises, bugs, smells. The rooms are nice and clean, but bugs did come out at night. The a/c in... More

Great atmosphere, nice people. Rooms are nicely decorated. Pool area is nice and fun to chill out. Riki the owner is a great guy! Few minutes walk to the beach, nice restaurants around. Not walking distance to the center (needed only for ATM). Cleaning level can be improved.

We stayed 5 nights in a room on the ground floor. We planned to book a Villa but these were all booked, so we went for a room instead. In my opinion this was not so bad after all. As opposed to the villas, the room offered much more privacy and it had a nice terrace as well. Downside was... More

The rooms are clean and very nice, the staff is helpfull and the location us great, only 2 minutes walking to the beach. Is great to enjoy the swimming pool after the surf, and also the BBQ. I will definitively come back to Griss and recommend it to my friends.

I'm currently staying here and love it. The place has a very personal service and you can really tell they _want_ to help you. The location is beautiful and the cheapest rooms and are great and the most expensive ones are like having an apartment of your own where you easily can fit 4 people with beds if two want... More

We definately cannot recommend Griss Lodge and found it extremely poor value. The Garden house we stayed in looked nice at first sight, but nothing worked: the aircon, the shower, the kitchen, the lock on the door - nothing worked, and in the end we gave up trying to find the so called hosts. Besides, the restaurant and pool area... More

We lived in one of the wooden houses for a week. It was by far the coolest "room" we've ever had. It was clean, safe and the owners are fantastic. They helped us booking tours and activities and are also extremely flexible and service minded. If you're going to Santa Teresa should you stay at Griss!

Ricki and Samona are amazing hosts for an amazing property! Just a few steps off the bus stop and a short skip to the beach (a path just across the street) you can't go wrong here. Our apartment is phenomenal with an equipped kitchen, hot water, and beautiful patio. The pool is a perfect way to end a hot day... More
