Somehow my first review gt erased... maybe that's why this place is overrated. The Good: -It's a quick walk to the beach, but up on a little hill so its quite (except for the monkeys-bring earplugs! ... this holds true for everywhere in Santa Teresa though) -The private decks on the cabins are very nice. -I liked the outside shower...

After reviewing tons of places to stay in Santa Teresa, I decided Funkey Monkey was the place that most met our desire to get away and feel part of the jungle, have the comforts of a restaurant on site, along with yoga and other activities. This trip was surprise birthday gift for my fiance, so it was important for me... More

My teenagers and I stayed at the Funky Monkey end of July/early August this year. From my first inquiry to our departure, Gabi made everything easy for us. Everything we wanted to do, Gabi set up for us--trip to Isla Tortuga, ATVs to zipline, horseback riding, surfing lessons, silks lesson in the yoga studio (Gabi gave us an amazing semi-private...

Beautiful place in Santa Teresa. I would choose them again.Very friendly staff. They also serve great breakfast and they have the best coffee in town. The place has also a tabletennis facility and a swimming pool.

The Funky Monkey is a lovely place with really nice atmosphere, food and staff. My 3 weeks stay in Santa Teresa improved even more when I the last week moved to The Funky Monkey. Getting up at sunrise, having a quick shower outside seeing the monkeys in the trees(seriously exotic for a Norwegian girl), eating nice breakfast, enjoying a nice... More

We stayed in Funky Monkey lodge for ten during in August and we really loved it. We stayed in the Suite which is beautifully decorated with a really comfortable bed, private bathroom, outside shower and large private terrace which overlooks the trees. From here we saw monkeys, butterflies and hummingbirds and could hear the crashing waves from the ocean. Funky... More

Perfectly located lodge in Santa Teresa. Minutes to the beach, restaurants, grocery store and tourism office to book day trips. Staff was so friendly and accommodating; always available to help with anything from ATV rental to taxis to general questions. The food was fantastic. So glad we chose this as our home for the week. We had a great time... More

The Funky Monkey Lodge made for a wonderful temporary home for 6 of our nights in Costa Rica. We ate very well (and tried sushi for the first time!), spent quality time on our hammock and took a lot of outdoor showers. This place, although not exactly glamorous, is truly the place you want to stay at if you are... More

Santa Teresa was the place we chose. The Funky Monkey Lodge which was recommended by a local surf shop turned out to... More

Beautiful property in the jungle with private cabins and a dorm. Awesome swimming pool. Short walk to the beach. Very friendly people. Nicely built structures. Dorm cabin ventilated by open air so there were some little critters here and there. The owner sprayed all the cabins with insecticide but because it's location in the jungle, it was obviously difficult for... More
