My friends and I wanted a home base in Santa Teresa that was clean, modern, but authentic, unpretentious, and charming, and most importantly economical. Hotel Nautilus truly exceeded any expectations we had. The family-run facility is a dream, where you instantly feel in touch with your surroundings and at home. We really did not want to leave. Really (we tried... More

We can't say enough positive things about our experience at Hotel Nautilus. After an exhausting long day of traveling we were greeted with warm smiling faces that welcomed us like old friends into their home. Walking in we were taken back at how beautiful the hotel was, from the simple yet modern architecture to the colorful landscaping thats adds privacy... More

What a place! If I could invent the perfect setting for a trip to Santa Teresa, it would be the Nautilus! Service was top notch and personal, food was amazing, you can taste the love in Adi's cooking in each delicious bite! They shop local farmers markets to bring the freshest organic produce and fruits for you to enjoy. Edi,... More

Hotel Nautilus was a great place to stay, very welcoming hosts and architecturally appealing rooms and communal areas/pool. The hotel is off the main (dirt) road and as such is very quiet except for the noise of the occassional howler monkey. Food was good too. Santa Teresa is very much a surfer destination, but there are of course many other... More

The room was very good but our holiday was wonderful because of the information and assitance given by the owners. They helped us plan all aspects of our holiday and gave us terrific advice on where to eat and play.

This was our first time to Santa Teresa, so picking a hotel was a "shot n the dark". We found the Nautilus on a random search, and of course, checked it with Trip Advisor. We figured, with all of these perfect ratings we can't go wrong. We are not going to steer you differently that what you've already read. Saying... More

We arrived at The Nautilus on a hot February day. We had taken the ferry over from Puntarenas. The ferry filled up 3 cars before us (on a Saturday) so unfortunately we had to wait in the sun an extra 2 hours. PLAN ACCORDINGLY! The ferry ride over was about 1 hour 15 minutes and the drive to The Nautilus... More

From the simple but modern feel of the rooms and shared space, to the eco-friendly soaps and garbage disposal (the friendly neighbour's goat!) Hotel Nautilus is easily our favorite spot to stay. Adi does wonders in the new restaurant, I highly recommend the smoothies and of course Edi's home made smoked swordfish. Wow. Owner Arik was very helpful- even recommending... More

Costa Rica is my favorite country, and within that Santa Teresa is a hidden gem. I've been to the area before and could not imagine it getting any better, but staying at Nautalis raised the bar again! I could not imagine a friendlier, more open and warm concierge. Everything they recommended and arranged was excellent, from the surf lessons to... More
