First I would like to address the ONE poor review by saying that there are TWO clear "reception" signs by where you drive in and park and another sign if you are walking in from the beach. I will post pictures of these so you have real proof. If the person who reviewed this place poorly was looking for a... More

Stayed for 3 nights in the Harmony Garden Villa and loved it! Beautiful, clean and so close to the beach and all the staff was helpful and friendly. We rented a scooter/moto for $30 a day that was perfect for getting to el Centro. Otherwise it was about $6-10 for a taxi to and from the hotel. There are nice... More

We stayed in Santa Teresa for one week and were very dissapointed, that we had to leave! Everybody, especially the girls at the reception ( thank you Andy, Lucecia and Sandra) were so friendly and were always there to answer our questions! They helped us a lot with organising our days. Already in front of our arriving, they contact us... More

We had the best time ever at The Red Palm Villas. Very spacious and clean villa, close to the (almost private) beach, and the most welcoming and kind staff ever. The villa has a pleasant outdoor 'jungle' feeling yet feels safe and cosy. We were surrounded by flowers, huge butterflies, birds and other species. By 4WD you can see a... More

If we could rate the Red Palms higher that five stars we would. We booked the Red Palm for our Wedding/Honeymoon almost a year in advance and had never been to Costa Rica, we had many questions, especially since we were planning our wedding. The owner (Mike) and all of his staff at the Red Palm are nothing short of... More

our family stayed in one of the villas and it was incredible...the villa itself was beautiful and compeltly exposed which although daunting at first proved to be the most exceptional experience of the whole two weeks there. The staff was very very friendly and I cannot reiterate how helpful in sorting out surfing gear and restaurant bookings... the location, imagine... More

We stayed at the Red Palm Villas for a little over three weeks during April (including Easter) this year, and had a wonderful time. Amazing to be staying practically on the beach, hearing the sound of the never-ending waves and experiencing the fabulous views from our villa. Santa Teresa beach is unbelievably pretty - a true paradise, so the location... More

We went during a two week, trip during rainy season. It took a while to get here, given the flight and the trek by SUV to get there. However if you want privacy, and to have a wonderful time, at a great place, look no further than here. The Villas are super clean, a mere few hundred feet from the... More

The staff, locals, villa, views, animals were all amazing. You are 30 yards from the beach and those 30 yards consist of kept walkways, exotic plants and trees, animals, and hammocks. Well worth the money and absolutely beautiful place to stay.

We spent two weeks at the Red Palm Villas and had a great time. The villas are right on a beautiful beach and also provide peace and privacy. The staff is amazing and will do everything to help you and make your stay memorable. The yoga teacher, Cris is one of the best teachers and people you will ever meet.... More
