This place was awesome! Rosella and Christian are so kind and welcoming. Our place was clean with a comfy bed. The decor inside is pretty sweet. We really enjoyed eating breakfast out on the deck next to a tree that had owls in it. The location is also close to a good surf break. Christian has surf boards available to... More

We booked a week here with Rosella and Christian. We had a nice large open space with two beds, A/C, an enclosed patio, microwave, fridge, coffeemaker and Cable TV. It was lovely! The lightly chlorinated pool was walk in warm and Rosanna was a delightful housekeeper. She is working on her English and is just a sweetheart. The location is... More

I booked this hotel from the other positive feedback from other travelers and I have to say that it falls short of being an excellent place to stay. The location is not bad as you are only a five minute walk to the main restaurants and surf shops and markets also you're close to the beach, what my main concern... More

I came to Santa Teresa with another reviewer, Jessica912, and we entrusted our native Costa Rican friend to book the hotel. I completely agree with all of the nice things she has to say about the Principe del Pacifico, we had such a great time staying there! The location is amazing, about a 2 minute trail walk to the beach,... More

I came to Santa Teresa with two friends to celebrate the end of our Master's program. One friend, a native Costa Rican, booked us at Principe del Pacifico and we couldn't have been happier with our stay there. Rosella and Christian, the Italian expat owners, couldn't have been nicer & more accommodating - Christian even changed the flat on our... More

They provided us was with great tips on area, surfing lessons, overall help and friendliness. It actually felt like we were staying with our own family! Very relaxing place. We loved our blue apartment so much.... More

Location : Perfect. Best location possible, as it's the hotel nearest to the beach. It's about 15-20 min biking distance to the crossroad going to Mal Pais, it's next to restaurants, great surfshops, groceries and more. Room : We had the room on the 1st floor, on the left side. Large room with a small ktchen we practical tools (toaster,... More

Our stay at Principe del Pacifico was unplanned, the result of an overbooking at another hotel. What a lovely surprise! At the northern end of Santa Teresa's action, it is set back behind a wall and iron gate, not very visible to the street. Once inside the gates and past the reception desk, the space opens up to a beautiful... More
