We stayed at Griss hotel for 5 nights and loved it! We had an apartment in the ground floor, well equipped and beautifully furnished and decorated. The large windows bring a lot of light and fresh air. It was quiet and could hear howler monkeys as well as the ocean! The hotel has a great pool and terrace. It is... More

I've spent 7 nights in one of these lovely apartments located just by the see. The place is perfect, because it's absolutely the closest to the most beautiful spots for bathing, walking and most of all surfing (all of the other hotels, more close to the village Malpais are in fact more distant from the Playa Santa Teresa). The houses... More

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
