We spent one week in the one bedroom apartment. It was perfect for my girlfriend and I. It was a minute walk down to the beach, right where there is a consistent right and left peak. Giovanni and Alessia were unreal. Our flight was delayed 3 days however they managed to rent out the apt. last minute for those days... More

Apartment : Perfect. We were on the second floor, the apartment to the left - the balcony gives this extra magical feeling with its beautiful vegetation and company ; butterflies, birds and sometines more ;) The place is clean, practical and comfortable. Only negative fact : you can easily hear through the walls, but we were lucky that all our... More

The apartment is fully equipped with all what you need to cook:) it is small but enough. The bed is the only thing I would improve, not too comfortable, not the worse not the best. The bathroom is spacious and lovely decorated. The pool area is small but beautiful. The customer service was really good. So I would recomment it... More

I have been going to Costa Rica for more than twenty years to surf, but I had never visited Santa Teresa. I usually stay in Playa Negra or Avellanas in Guanacaste. We went down to Santa Teresa for one night stay and when we started looking for hotels we were surprised to find out that everyone had the same rate:... More

Santa Teresa is a very nice area. The hotel is close to everything but is not beachfront, however it has a nearby beach access. It is also clean and confortable not to mention the rates are very good. Worth the price you pay. It has one inconvenient, since the hotel is made of wood, you can hear everything on the... More

Nice and beautiful, relaxing place to stay. Little apartments super comfortable in front of the beach, yet with a delicious pool to chill. Very clean. The owner is extremely kind and helpful, would be back there for sure.

Stayed here for 3 nights. It is a short walk to the beach, the surfboard rental shop, a small supermarket (very useful since there is a common kitchen), and several restaurants including the great Ginger Cafe (amazing coffee, breakfast and lunch). However it is still very peaceful given the location and orientation of the rooms. Speaking of the rooms they... More

We found the most amazing wooden room in a peaceful and well-kept property. After visiting places where we had to choose between a/c or privet toilets we... More
