This is the best place I have stayed in Santa Teresa period. The hotel is very very close to the beach and centrally located as far as groceries and restaurants are concerned. The rooms are clean and safe. The grounds are green and they use plants to give each room a little privacy. The AC works great and the showers... More

My husband & I spent one night at Melo Melo & were very happy with our host Melanie, as she was very helpful & friendly. Our bungalow was very clean, but as far as comfortable - not so much! No soap, hand towels, extra roll of toilet paper... The outside area had a hammock & little table & chairs, but... More

Dear guest, We are really sorry to hear that your stay in Playa Santa Teresa and our hotel wasn't a pleasant one, as much as we are surprised about it since you didn't mention any bug problems in our terrace. We never hear about that before but as we are located in a tropical country we are surrounded by an... More

My husband & I stayed for 3 amazing weeks at Hotel Meli Melo and felt right at home from the start. Melanie & Frederick were great/helpful hosts and we loved our welcoming canines, Mirza & Chico. Our accommodations were clean(muchas gracias, Angela!), comfortable, and private - set within a lush, tropical landscape. The outdoor communal kitchen was a great place... More

Thoroughly enjoyed staying there....very reasonably priced, roomy, clean, comfortable, friendly atmosphere, and a community kitchen for socializing (and eating). I... More

I stayed here for 2 days in September 2014. My room was probably the most cheerful room I've ever had, with bright colored furniture and stripes on the walls. It was small, with 2 shelving units for clothes or other storage and a small chair. I used one of the shelves as a desk for my laptop computer and that... More
