We came for our honeymoon and appreciated the fruit basket and bottle of champagne that were waiting for us when we arrived. We stayed in the Harmony villa which was lovely and had everything we needed. We especially enjoyed having a blender so we could make our own smoothies with the delicious tropical fruits. However several of the walls are... More

We went to celebrate our 15 wedding anniversary and we had an amazing weekend, the Deluxe Garden Suite was very nice and clean , everything we needed was provided in the room and all the staff was always available.

We have just returned from our stay at Red Palms! What an adventure, rustic elegance! Our villa was nestled into jungle forestry with views of the beach and the sounds of waves. It was atypical of "touristry" accommodations we were a part of the jungle with open air living spaces...not a bug to bother us. The hammocks to sway in... More

Our stay in the Honeymoon Villa was a great experience. We occupied the open air second floor of the villa while our friends stayed in the air conditioned bedroom on the first floor. The sounds of the crashing waves, howler monkeys in the morning and birds were a constant reminder of where we were and what we were experiencing. The... More

Please do not believe all the rave reviews of this hotel. I could not hide my disappointment when we arrived after a very long, dusty and BUMPY ride from Tambor. I have been to Costa Rica before and traveled on bumpy roads, but this was ridiculous. Upon arrival, we were shown our deluxe garden suites( we had two since we... More

Hi Patrick, more sorry then words can say you feel the way you do. I obviously care, though in France I spent hours for 2 days trying to find out how your son was and see if he was getting proper medical care, I hope he is feeling better. Regarding the cockroach, not sure what to say, my staff is... More

We loved Red Palm Villas! We enjoyed everything about it. The location was great, with the beach right out front, but easily accessible to the many delicious restaurants in Santa Teresa and nearby, as long as you’re up for the adventurous driving. The service at RPV was remarkable. We got help with everything we needed, from stand-up paddle boarding and... More

Everything written in the below reviews about the Red Palm Villas is spot on. From the minute we decided on a trip to Santa Teresa, the owner and staff were friendly, professional and helpful. We decided on Playa Santa Teresa becuase of the surfing, as our two sons are advanced surfers and the youngest is heading off to college. We... More
