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

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
