Can't say enough about how wonderful this place is. Christian was such a great host and made us feel like family during our stay. The rooms are priced perfectly, completely reasonable considering your getting A/C and cable TV and a kitchenette. Not only that, but you are given access to anything you need whether it be in a vacant room... More

Rossella and Christian, both from Italy, own Principe del Pacifico. They are warm and genuine. My friends and I stayed in the "Green" room. I felt right at home there. We were greeted by Mia, the lab, and by Silvio, the parrot! I recommend staying here if you want a home away from home.

Quite literally, Cristiano and his hotel saved our honeymoon!!! We can´t give much higher praise than that. We were staying for 3 days in Santa Teresa. Our first night was spent in a dreadful hotel and we were desperate to leave. Thankfully Cristiano had a vacancy. Cristiano and his wife could not have made us feel more welcome. The whole... More

This hotel is in a good location close to one of the funnest beaches I've been to in Costa Rica. The rooms are very cool, not your average type of hotel rooms which I like. We stayed in the Green Suite which was an upgrade and I'm glad we did, it was great to have a huge deck overlooking the... More

My wife and I found this hotel through Trip Advisor and the many and various reviews about it posted there. Although I have given Principe del Pacifico an overall of 4 dots, I think it is truly more of a 3 1/2 dots because it is definitely better than average, but it's not great, not exceptional. It is not a... More

This is definitely the best place to stay in Santa Teresa! We have stay almost 2 weeks. Owners Rossella and Christian are extraordinary people always there to help you find the best spot around town (restaurant, price for quad, taxi etc.). The rooms are beautiful, clean and very relaxing. There a bar with a adorable barmaid who do the best... More

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
