The place was really nice we rented the whole place and it was our luck that a few people had to drop out at the last minute. The photos of the rooms are a bit deceiving especially the apartment and bedroom #3. Yes the apartment has 2 bedrooms but no one said to get to the 2nd bedroom you had... More

I first stopped in Atrapasueños last week, and I chose to go with the place across the street that was $20 cheaper. What a mistake!!! This is our second time back to Santa Teresa on this trip, and we decided to try this place. After being all over in CR and paying all the way up to $160 a night... More

I was in the area only for one night, and I sure made a good choice when I booked a room here.50 yrds from the beach with a bar and great pool. Clean rooms and a full kitchen to share. Helpful staff and walking distance to stores and eateries. I wouldn't hesitate to stay there again. Thanks dream catchers.

We had wanted to go to Costa Rica for a long time, and when we finally got the chance we were given the Atrapasuenos hotel as the first place to start our journey. When we arrived, it met our expectations right away! Margot and Carolina were not only amazingly responsive before we arrived (answered all our questions, gave us options,... More

We stayed at Atrapasuenos Hotel on Playa Santa Teresa for one wonderful week. What a spot! The hotel itself is a beautiful home with solid Central American heavy wooden doors, community kitchen, gorgeous dining area overlooking the pool and spa, and lovely rooms with garden views and private baths. We wandered through the backyard, with its hammocks and flowers, to... More

We had been traveling through Costa Rica for a few weeks before arriving at Atrapasuenos Hotel, which is run by Margot and her family. I can say that without a doubt, this has been the best combination for location, facility and staff out of all the places we have stayed. The hotel is located just a short walk to the... More

My wife and I have just spent another wonderful experience at Atrapasuenos in Playa Carmen! Every time we visit with Margot and Carolina is like going home again. They are always extremely welcoming and attentive to our needs both when booking and while there. The location of Atrapasuenos is absolutely perfect for any activities in the area, including beach going,... More

Our group stayed in the 3 rooms downstairs for 9 days this January. The hospitality and surroundings were incredible. Three of the 6 of us were early morning risers to surf and Diego always had coffee ready for us. When you stay here, make sure to ask Diego to cook dinner for you....his chicken is outstanding. But the last night... More

Lovely rooms with balconys right on the beach. I could not ask for more in terms of personal service, nice rooms, location and not to mention the possibility to cook your own food in their big kitchen. That was helpful the day I pulled up a 12 kg Amber Bass from the pacific. =) Probably the best place I stayed... More

My boyfriend and me found that hotel very randomly in Santa Teresa upon our arrival late at night. We felt really lucky to find this place. We got a really nice room with AC and nice TV, spacious and nicely decorated. There was a beautiful private balcony with the view on the garden and a hamac. There is also a... More
