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

We absolutely loved this hotel that is located few minutes away from the beach. Family-owned hotel with the nicest staff. We adored the owners. 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

Principe del Pacifico is a really nice place with a small but refreshing pool, modern design and lovely staff. But if you chose it don't go for Brown apartment as it is the only one stuck behind with no view and a verandah facing the fence and other peoples' houses just steps away. Other apartments seem really cool and with... More

I spent a month in Santa Teresa from early November through early December. I found Principe del Pacifico through TripAdvisor and contacted Principe directly to inquire about a rental. Rossella's prompt reply gave me just the right feeling and my intuition was correct that this would be the ideal place for me to stay. I rented the Red Apartment and... More

Stayed there in Oct. 2013 and was amazing! Everything was perfect and Christian and Roselle were awesome. The place was incredibly clean and quiet just in front of a beach entrance. Plus the place is right in front of the best surf spot of Santa Teresa! Pura Vida!!!!!

Myself, my wife and our 5 month old baby stayed here for 6 nights in November 2013. The rooms/apartments and property is excellent, spacious, comfortable and far enough from the road to keep the noise out, but close enough to make the walk to the beach an very quick one. The rooms and property are excellent which made relaxing at... More
