Jon the manager is an amazing guy who is allways nice... More

We stayed at Don Jons for 5 nights. We booked the "tree house" a bit back in the yard. The first morning we woke up, the howler monkey were climbing over the hats and trees - great! The place is very relaxed, plenty of hammocks to chill and also the garden is very nice. Jon, the other staff and the... More

Stayed at Don Jon's for 3 nights on a surf trip with another guy. We had a shared dorm for $16 per night, for that price it was a total steal. The proprietor Jon was a super nice, laid back guy who didn't even ask for our money when we owed him for the second night stay. He actually let... More

Don Jons was the first of what was meant to be many stops in Costa Rica...but we ended up staying much longer then planned. It was simply too good! The vibe at this little slice of heaven is something itself. Never, have i been able to relax as much as i did the weeks staying at Don Jons. Jon and... More

We stayed in Don Jon's five nights as part of our Costa Rican round trip. I've visited plenty of places, also in a high price category, but I've never experienced such a good host and such a great atmosphere anywhere. The beach is very close, the accommodations are clean and comfortable with hammocks everywhere. The breakfast is really tasty and... More

One week ended up being three. Yoga, surfing, relaxing, good food and amazing people. Don Jons is the best place to stay in Santa Teresa. I stayed in the dorms for three whole weeks, which was perfect for me, as I am traveling on a budget (shared a room with some pretty awesome people), but staying in the treehous/cabinas in... More

Don Jon's is located close to the beach, right on the main strip but has the chilled vibes and tranquility that I was after whilst in Costa Rica. I spent SEVEN WEEKS here and could have stayed longer for sure, definitely missing the place right now. All of the staff are absolute legends and really accommodating, the dorm room is... More

We started our trip in CR from Santa Teresa in December and we spent the first 6 night in Don Jon's. The place was all that you could wish for, we had two bedroom apartment with two sanitary room and AC. The service was great and you didn't need to worry about your safety at all. I even happened to... More

You can't find a better place then Don Jon*s. Closest to the best surf, the coolest tree houses in the area and will definitely give you memories for the long run. Relax to the max at don jon*s with jon and the dogs :)

This was our second trip to Santa Teresa and our second time staying at Don Jon's! We had the best time staying at this place. The owner is an amazing guy, the place is very clean and comfortable and you will meet so many great people there. Our trip wouldn't be as great if we were not staying at Don... More
