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

The Blue Surf Sanctuary had come recommended by a friend. We travel to Costa Rica several times a year and decided to head to the beach this trip, so I started communicating with the staff of the Blue Surf and they are just wonderful people to deal with. 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

We just got back from a weeks vacation at blue surf and words can't explain how special it is there... But I will try. It's beautiful! The staff was super helpful and happy and accomodating. Our room was thoroughly cleaned everyday. Also, we felt super safe during our entire stay. There was even a night security guard. Santa Teresa is... More

Stayed here for several nights with our family of four, Mom & Dad and two boys of ages 22 and 24. The beach within walking distance provided hours of entertainment and the hotel staff was incredibly helpful with questions about where to go to eat and anything else we needed to go. The family traveled around Costa Rica for 12... More

Blue Surf is exactly what you would want in a hotel in Santa Teresa. It is relaxed and sooo inviting! The staff is amazing and goes above and beyond for your comfort. The beach is literally a 1 min walk away and town is close as well (which forme I don't want to be in town, a little ways away... More

Stayed here for 3 nights and the bungalows are lovely! So spacious, comfortable, lovely decorated and with a walk in shower! The pool area is lovely and a great place to chill when the sun is so hot. There is also a kitchen and eating area. Just watch the mosquitos, there were plenty when we stayed. The location is great... More

Went to Blue surf to celebrate my husband's and brother's 50th b-days. We arrived a night early, and though we had made the error in our reservation, we were welcomed with open arms and clean cabinas. We stayed for 6 nights, and had 4 couples total, so had the whole place to ourselves for most nights. What a fabulous way... More
