Nice, clean. The ocean is across the little road, maximum five minutes walk. We like the area and it is nice to rent a quad to get around. Nice staff, the pool was clean. Nice to have the jungle next to the houses.

Santa Theresa is busy in February. We had a nice clean room within walking distance to a beautiful beach. The front office staff was excellent. There are several great restaurants near by. This town is a surfer's paradise

We really liked Raratonga! It has everything you need, the rooms have extra pillows and the beds are comfortable. Very clean. There's 2 cheap tico restaurants right next door, and best of all a supermarket right next door! Very helpful. Yes, you can hear roosters but I've heard a rooster at 80% of the hotels in Costa Rica. If it's... More

The rooms are very clean, with a small fridge, a/c and a nice bathroom. The location is perfect - there's restaurants, bars, grocery store and the beach just around the corner. The pool is clean and nice to cool down in - and the staff is really helpful and polite!

The Good: close to the beach and supermarket, clean rooms, air-conditioning but a little weak, small pool available as well The not so good: no free drinking water or option for breakfast. A little pricey for what you're getting

My husband and I spent 6 nights end of February in a one bedroom apartment. The apartment was fantastic, full stove, large refrigerator, great inside space, hot shower and VERY clean. Air conditioning worked perfectly! It was affordable, and apart from the crazy roosters in the morning (you do get used to them), it was nice and quiet. The only... More

We loved Raratonga apartment. We had a comfortable ground level apartment with 1 bedroom, private bathroom & kitchen and a great lanai directly in front of the amazing looking pool. This place is super clean, quiet and I would say perfect for a couple of even a family. It's about 5 min walk to the beach and really close to... More

We stayed for 6 nights at Raratonga apartments (300 meters from the Raratonga hotel). Great surprise when you arrive: it is a haven of peace, with a very nice swimming pool, and the apartment wooden decoration is really warm. Well equiped kitchen. Our 2 bedrooms (5p) apartment had a terrace from which you have a view on the swimming pool... More

I have stayed at the hotel and apartments, both are great and have friendly staff to assist you. It is safe, clean and full of goodness. There is a killer surf break within walking distance and it is also close to food. The road is paved in this stretch of town and makes it alot less dusty which is nice.... More

I booked my reservations at Raratonga Apartments online without having visited Santa Teresa before. I loved it. It was perfect for me. Simple- high quality and service. I had a one bedroom apartment with a kitchen and full bath. My porch looked right onto the pool as was private and quiet. My room accommodations were supplied with everything i needed-... More
