Four of us visited in early March this year for 7 days. Gabi and staff go out of their way to make sure your stay in the area is enjoyable. They will hook you up with the right equipment, tours, local surf lessons etc. The lodge itself is nicely laid out. We stayed in a studio apartment - loved the... More

I like the Funky Monkey. This past March was my second visit. It's a little bit rustic, some of the staff can seem disinterested at times and you can probably find better or at least equal lodging for less. But what Funky Monkey has that i really love is the sense of community. They have a common area where you... More

We spent 8 nights here and couldn't have been happier! The staff was amazing, super friendly, helpful and inspiring! The bungalow that we stayed in was also perfect for us, rustic and stylish, clean and private. Loved how the cabin was designed so open that we almost felt outdoors with the outdoor bathroom and animals outside. The location couldn't be... More

Loved our stay at the funny monkey! We stayed in a bungalow for 10 days, the hammock was my favorite... It was nice to lay in at the end of the day. The bathroom is outdoors so be prepared to see a few bugs and geckos. If you are planning on doing any excursions, Gabi was very helpful with thise... More

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

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...
