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! We were in romantic 2- a wooden hut facing out to the ocean and beach with a little veranda with hammock and deck chair, ideal for sundowners. The shower... More

We travelled to this hotel on May , 2015 and it was a long journey from were we came from in monteverde. We arrived at the hotel after 8pm. It is on the out skirts of Santa Teresa down a very bumpy and dusty road. We were tired and hungry when we arrived and walked up the flight of stairs... More

We stayed here last summer on the first part of our Costa Rica trip. As we are planning our vacation this year, we can't find anywhere that compares to the great places we stayed in Costa Rica. Vanessa and Ramon have a beautiful place right across from the beach. We stayed in one of the small cabins and it was... More

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

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...
