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

There is no words to describe how much we enjoyed our stay at the Red Palms Hummingbird villa. The staff is top notch. They are willing to go an extra mile to make you happy. The dogs and "Julio the cat makes you feel Special when they stand ready to greet you and show their unconditional love. We are hoping... More

My wife & I spent 5 days in the Hummingbird Villa for our 1-year anniversary and loved this place. We had a little trouble with Sansa canceling our flight to Tambur, but after 6 hours with a crazy driver, they had champagne on ice for us and recommendations for dinner since it was so late. The villa was perfect for... More
