Vanessa and Ramon are very welcoming and authentic host! Excellent place to stay if you want quiet room, superior tapas at night and very good breakfast ! The beach is just across the road, you'll see it from your room and 5 min walk to the best of Playa Hermosa. No need to rent a car if staying for 3-4... More

We had a great stay at El Rey Patricio. We stayed in the Bungalow Familiar, it's a basic, comfortable bungalow right across the street from the ocean, you can lie in bed and listen to the surf. The hosts Ramon & Vanessa were great & quick to help us with anything we needed. I would recommend renting a car or... More

Rooms are simple but with all the necessary (including AC). Very peaceful, enough to cross the road and you are on the beach (often for your own or with few people). The restautant is to try even if you are staying somewhere else. The owner are super kind.

We stayed here for 3 nights and it's a great spot. The owners (Ramon and Vanessa) are nice people and they were super helpful with us as we had car issues (DO NOT rent with Mapache!). Our room was simple yet nice with the ocean just across the street. The location is outside of the main town so you will... More

Went for dinner and ordered several tapas for two people. Excellent food and good service. A little far from the center, but no problem by car. Don't know about the hotel, but the restaurant was nice.

Stayed here for 2 nights as a treat on a backpacking trip. Easily got a taxi from Santa Teresa for about 7 dollars. As other reviews say this place isn't in the main town (good!) but in a lovely quiet location right on the most amazing secluded part of the beach, you could stay here for longer with a car,...

A truly stunning place, fantastic value for money and lovely hosts. There really isn't a bad thing to say about this place, tastefully renovated with beautiful rooms and very comfy beds!
