We had a phantastic time at the Blue Surf Sanctury, the place is new, very well maintained and staff ist friendly. We would definitely recommend to stay there when you are in Santa Teresa. The spot is perfect- although you need a car/quad to get to town, the part of the beach is the prettiest...

Took a trip with a gal pal to visit Santa Teresa, CR and stayed at Blue Surf Sanctuary (BSS) on Oct 12-17, 2014. As desert dwellers, our objective was to hit the beach and learn how to surf. I conversed via email and phone with Kelly, co-owner of BSS, before the visit to get info, plan logistics, and make reservations.... More

Blue Surf was amazing! We were met at the airport and brought to the property where a friendly staff member greeted us. The staff helped us plan out activities for the week including surfing lessons and surfboard rentals for the week, a full day sailing and scuba trip to Tortuga, and ATV rentals. Having a communal outdoor kitchen was great... More

Once we arrived the local staff were all just wonderful, the rooms... More

My husband and I stayed at Blue Surf for 11 nights and it was incredible! The location, the staff, the rooms, everything was awesome. My husband and I showed up a night early; tired from travel, we walked in with fingers crossed hoping that we would be able to get a room. The night guard immediately opened our room for... More

Arranged for my husband to have a much needed 10 day solo beach CHILLAX. Could not have chosen a better venue. The assistance I received from the staff in sorting everything from transport to activities was customer service at it's very best. According to my husband and his photos it was PARADISE. Small venue with giant opportunity for amazing memories.... More
