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! We even had a holiday cat that visited us often! We tried surfing for the first time and Peter is a great coach! I highly recommend this wonderful place!... More

We have been to Mal Pais/Santa Theresa 4 times last 6 years. This is by far one of the best places to visit and stay. Always loved the Brazilian food in Rancho Itauna and best services in town. Didn't stay there until our last trip in Dec 2012 (hard to get a reservation as it's always booked!), which we decided... More

What a nice way to end our trip in Costa Rica in that clean, big and comfortable cabina. And with our own kitchen, we were able to prepare great food and eat facing the beautiful beach. Not too far from the surf spots, the waves were great (late August), and the temperature perfect. And after the surf, yoga time on... More

We could not have asked for a better location - Ranchos Itauna is THE bargain stay on the beach! Our four nights in Peter's cabina were unforgettable! The room was clean and secure with thoughtfully equipped kitchenette to make our stay even more at home. It also has air-conditioning and a nice mattress which was great for me since my... More

Ranchos Itauna WITHOUT DOUBT is the best deal on the beach. The property is beautiful, nice shady beachfront, awesome sunsets, a little "private" bay with low-tide rock pools, near the main surf points....excellent food, excellent attention. Peter and Fatima the owners will certainly look after you. The Cabinas are clean, well equipped and spacious...great stay for families and individuals alike.... More
