Our family of four stayed at Hotel Meli Melo for one week at the end of March. It is a great spot to relax and enjoy the gorgeous beach! There are plenty of shops and restaurants within walking distance. The hotel is very clean and Melanie & Frederic are very friendly and helpful. I definitely recommend this as a great... More

5mn away from Santa Teresa beach, simple and clean rooms & bathrooms, lovely terrace and hamoc - perfect for a relaxed, and easy stay - you can rent a surfboard, get drinking water, and ask Melanie & Fred for any advice and recommendations. Simply perfect.

My wife and son (8 years old) just returned from a wonderful four days and nights in Santa Teresa. We found Santa Teresa to be a great place for our family. The location of the hotel is very good. We loved that we could walk to everything (beach, restaurants, grocery store, a new French bakery). We had heard about the... More

With nearly two months spent in Playa Santa Teresa, and having stayed at multiple accommodations, Meli Melo was our favorite. Not only is Hotel Meli Melo a family run business, but they treat their guests like family too, which makes staying there truly rise above all other options in the area. With great WiFi connection, Air Conditioned rooms, comfortable beds,... More

We stayed here last January and came back again the year for ten days. We had one of the rooms in the back which was so nice and private. The rooms are so clean and nice, the air conditioning is great and the hot water showers were the best we had on our three-week trip. We loved having the kitchen... More

Ever find a place that you love so much you almost don't want to share the info about it for fear it may get ruined??? This is that kind of place. But lucky for you all I love to share. Seriously the perfect place to live, as they say here, the "pura vida". Melanie & Frederique are kind and helpful... More

Been a week back in New York now. Unfortunately, the heat and sun of Central America has all but disappeared, but the warmth of Meli Melo still hasn't. Our twelve days spent there, mostly for surfing, were some of the most relaxing moments of my life. Melanie and Fred's place isn't for those looking for a luxurious, outdoor style jungle-retreat,...

Meli Melo is amazing, by far the best place we stayed at in Costa Rica. The sweet rooms are spotless (complete with safe and wifi), the kitchen is well equipped with everything you need and it is in a fantastic location just across the road from the beach. However, what really made our stay special was Melanie and Fred (the... More
