I just spent a week at Costa Riki Apartments with a friend, we rented a two bedrooms apartment on the ground floor and couldn't have made a better choice!!! This little complex is located in a convenient area, close to the beach, bars, restaurants and stores. The apartment is very clean and spacious, a large living room with a good... More

Kids loved the pool. My wife and I stayed at Costa Riki for over a week during our three month travel adventure in Costa Rica and... More

There are so many things wrong with this place starting at the top, and that's the owner. "Rikki" is a terrible host, who is mostly concerned with money and not his guests. To give some credit where it's due, his local staff was more friendly and willing to help us with the things we needed. Let's start with the positives.... More

We are sorry this client had such a negative experience at CostaRiki. In the 4 years we’ve been open, this was the very first time anyone has complained about our mattresses or about our safety doors. -Our mattresses are all queen-size, orthopedic, with antiallergenic foam, of the Santa Maria brand, either of the semi-hard or hard type (http://colchonessantamaria.com/catalogo.html). You've got... More

Costa Riki was the best place we've stayed in Costa Rica. Fully stocked kitchen, clean/filtered/drinkable water (unlike the majority of Santa Teresa), secure/safe property, comfortable beds, hot water, good wifi connection, cozy living room and outdoor space, clean/no bugs, pool, and extremely helpful and accommodating owner and staff. There is a great yoga spot up the street Nautralis (but take... More

Costa Rikki was a great place, we rented the 2 bigger studios and it suited us very well,we had a group of 8 people. The place was clean and well maintained... Close to the beach and shops.. Loved the vibe in santa teresa and Rikki was an exceptional host too.

Stayed to nights with Riki in his compound. The apartment was very clean, well maintained and had everything we needed. Even beach and bath towels which are apparently often not included in CR. The kitchen had everything we needed and the AC was spot on. The area outside with the hammock was also pretty good... The best thing is that... More
