We stayed for 5 nights in the room with ocean-view and had a great experience! The room is basic but clean, very charming and exciting. Very reasonable value for money. Being separated by wooden shutters from the outside gives it a real close-to-nature feel, hearing the ocean’s waves. What is even more exciting is that you are at Santa Teresa... More

As they they were fully booked, Vanessa and Ramon couldn't rent us a room. Nevertheless we went to have dinner at the restaurant to see what we missed. They both are doing a very fine job, working hard to please their guests. And the spanish food was really worth going to that restaurant. So this place seems to be a... More

The title says it all :-) We had amazing time staying with Vanessa and Ramon. They are very friendly, helpful and fun people to be around. They put their hearts and souls into this place. We had small but very cozy romantic room with ocean view and hammock. Vanessa and Ramond were very kind to us. They took us to... More

We had such an amazing time at El Rey Patricio. The hotel is a little outside of town, which is the way a like it! It gives you a feeling of seclusion and a more genuine, personable, and unique experience. The beach is about 50 feet from the hotel which was nice for a nighttime stargazing session on the beach....

We were in Santa Teresa and had an amazing stay at this lovely hotel. The owners are incredibly friendly and helpful, the place super romantic and the room, despite small size, very clean. We loved it! Only tip - probably for couples who have been going out for a while - there is no privacy! :)

Absolutely gorgeous tapas a la Spanish chef, beautiful sunsets from the restaurant and from the hotel room, clean hotel, helpful and friendly service, near to Playa Hermosa with good surfing waves. I fell in love with this place. It's relaxing and not too close to the centre of Santa Teresa (5 km). Closest store is only 2 km away.

The perfect place to relax. The tropical location 50m above the beach provides a certain calmness to come down & relax. El Rey is located a little bit outside Santa Teresa & away from the busy downtown life. The nature and the garden is well fostered. A lot of nice birds and some squirrels are daily visitors. Vanessa & Ramon,... More

We stayed at this place for 5 nights. Great view from the restaurant, great service in the morning both with the food, and with booking activities. And the dinner, especially the mahi mahi is great. Too bad that the aircon did not work, and that we found some big cocroches there. Since this place is located as remote as it... More
