That's the place you're looking for to escape from the city. Location simply perfect! Peter the owner is the perfect guest. The view is amazing and during the low tide natural pools appear right at the point. Not last, the beach bar is the best location in town to enjoy the sunset.

My family and I just returned from Ranchos Itauna. We had a marvelous time. The location was perfect, especially with it being on the beach. Our apartment was clean and comfortable. My kids, 4 & 6, loved the hermit crabs, animals and learning to body surf. My husband and I loved the near by beach, which was perfect to learn... More

You can have a swim in the ocean, do yoga at their lovely yoga deck, enjoy the sun, walk to restaurants, cafes and super market, enjoy the fabulous sunsets - all... More

I am currently staying here in Ranchos Itauna, and it was our best choice so far in Santa Teresa. For the same price that we spent at other places in Santa Teresa, this was the best yet. Location is perfect for everything, and the room is great! The best shower I've had so far in Costa Rica. They have hot... More

A friend and me booked a week at Ranchos Itauna to learn surfing. We found perfect conditions: The surfcamp is right at the beach, excellent food & accomodation and Peters passion about surfing will likely catch on. We did not just learn how to surf practically but also about the background of surfing (history, boards, theory). We just had the... More

Me and my wife stayed there in january for a couple of days. The owner asked us to write a review on this platform. I just don´t know why? First of all, it´s a surf camp, not a hotel as written on their homepage. The 4 rooms they offer, are a kind of dorm rooms for 4 people and they... More

My husband and I stayed here for 4 nights and loved it! Peter and his family are so welcoming! We stayed in an upper level cabina. Hot water and cold air!
