We rented a beautiful, small and charming bungalow from El Rey Patricio for 5 nights. Breakfast was included and was different and delicious every morning. We ate at the attached Tapas restaurant several times because the specials changed with what was fresh and it was so delicious that we wanted to try everything. Vanessa and Ramon were incredible helpful with... More

Great place to stay to enjoy the simple wonders of Costa Rica. The tapas is out of this world! The fresh seafood is something to write home about. Vanessa and Ramon are sincere in wanting you to enjoy yourself and will go out of their way to ensure that. We had a toddler with us and we were asked before... More

We arrived late in the evening after a long, strenuous journey down the dirt roads. Vanessa made us feel welcome at once and even though it was late, they cooked the amazing Paella for us and all was well. We went to sleep to the sound of the waves and woke to sunshine, beach living and a nice breakfast. Our... More

We had an amazing time in Santa Theresa last July, and a big part of it was because of the warm welcome we received from Ramon and Vanessa. We're from Montreal, so we wanted to learn how to surf, and playa hermosa is simply stunning! Oh, and Ramon's croquetas de jamon were out of this world :) We had the... More

The owners Vanessa and Ramon make your stay so special. From the minute you walk up the steps into this quaint hotel you feel like your home. Vanessa is a wealth of information on where to go. Ramon locked in a ATV for us within minutes of checking into the hotel. The accommodations are small and rustic but with all... More

We were tired and slightly disorientated from a long journey , Owners Vanessa and Ramon were super helpful to show maps of surrounding areas, recommend things to do, places to eat etc - it made it so easy to adjust! We ate in the restaurant for Dinner,... More

My wife and I ate at El Rey Patricio Restaurant one evening during a two week get away in Santa Teresa this September. It was off the beaten path away from the hub of Santa Teresa with a lovely view of the ocean from atop of a tiki hut-like atmosphere. We had such a pleasant dining experience that we decided...

We stayed there for 3 nights and decided to add a fourth one because we liked it so much. Ramon and his lovely wife were super welcoming, helpful and provided us with lots of useful tips. My girlfriend has celiac's disease and our stay here was one of the easiest so far - they have delicious glutenfree meals and know... More

We had an amazing stay in Hotel El Rey Patricio! Although it was not in the centre, I thought the location was beautiful and peaceful. The owners are very helpful, they provided us with a map and pointed out some things we would do, restaurants we should visit, etc. The bungalow was beautiful, with a nice view on the ocean!...

We decided to stay here amongst a couple other places we had chosen in Sta Teresa and we were happy about our choice. We wanted only to relax and be at the beach. It was a quiet, small room with a hammock and a perfect view of the ocean including other intricacies found around the hotel. Even though it was... More
