This is the first review I've posted.... I felt the need to comment on how well Arik and his team at Nautilus did to ensure my wife and I had an amazing experience in CR!!... (on our Honeymoon in July). The food at Olam was amazing, the staff was super nice, the accommodations were perfect, and the yoga instructors were... More

Hands downs, this is the best boutique hotel on the island! Trust me, our group initially booked a stay further up the hill and it turned into a 24hr nightmare! (i.e. Flee bites, roaches, animal hair on the beds, rude staff...the list goes on). While trying to escape the nightmare, our group walked past Nautilus hotel and decided to have... More

This was my first time at Santa Teresa and I wasn't sure what to expect from the hotel. It turned out the be much better than I expected. I booked the room Gaia, two bedrooms, two bathrooms, living room, kitchenette, and nice size terrace. The room was larger than I expected, tastefully decorated, and very clean. Even though it's a...

We stayed at Nautilus in Feb and could not have been more pleased with our choice of hotel. It's small and cozy, clean and nicely decorated. Beds are comfortable. The yoga is fantastic, with a couple of different teachers on the schedule. The food is great, though not super kids friendly (which doesn't matter because there are plenty of great... More

A friend and I went to Santa Teresa for a yoga retreat and arrived a few days early to check out the town/activities. We stayed at Nautilus Boutique Hotel which was a great decision (and we got upgraded to the "villa" suite)! The staff and owners made us feel welcome right from the moment we arrived at their hotel and... More

I am overdue in sharing my experience. We stayed here in July of 2014 and it was one of the best places we've ever stayed. The villas are nice sized - separate kitchen and living space from the bedroom. The grounds are beautiful, the restaurant has great food and the yoga space and teachers are amazing. The staff I think... More

A few steps away from the busy main road through Santa Teresa is a hidden gem - Arik and Gal's beautiful Nautilus Hotel. Ran away from a terrible work year and found peace, friendship, warmth and love here! A place to heal! Gal and the girls running everyday business from the cosy reception/hang out/restaurant always wearing a big smile and... More

This is a cute little boutique hotel where you are greeted by the owners with a hug. The restaurant is great, and the grounds are pretty. Most importantly, the villas are simple gorgeous! I stayed here after a short stay in Montezuma, and it was pretty clear that I should've been at Nautilus the whole time! The beach is a... More

I absolutely am in love with Nautilous! Incredible service, beautiful villas, friendly staff that will help you with everything you need. Located in a very quiet private area, surrounded by trees giving it it's magical tropical escape feel, you will truly be most relaxed and in love with this place. Yoga is offered daily by great instructors. My favorite part... More

After a long day of driving it was a treat to finally arrive at our hotel! Hotel Nautilus is a true gem! From the sweet gal Vicky who checked us in, to Eddie (I am terrible with names, I hope I got that right) who showed us our room, to Arik who promptly answered all of my emails! I cannot... More
