As you can see by my profile, I usually give glowing reviews. However I feel compelled to write about my negative experience at El Rey Patricio. Perhaps people thinking about staying there will gather from the description but this is a very basic place. Very small rooms. Yes there is an ocean view - from outside your room. Not from... More

We came to stay in santa teresa for 2 nights and planned to stay here for the full time. Vanessa and ramon are delightful and the restaurant is great. The bungalow we stayed in was right by a dirt road so the whole room was covered in a layer of dust and sheets didnt seem clean. We ended up only... More

We loved our 9-day stay at El Rey Patricio. We had a bungalow all set with A/C and hammock on the porch, standing by itself. It was very clean and great value (beginning of rainy season) with Ocean views from the porch. The Hotel and restaurant are run by Vanessa and Ramón, a super-friendly couple from Barcelona. They helped with... More

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! :)
