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

We had such an amazing stay at Blue Surf. The location is perfect, remote feel, but just a few short blocks from town. Beautiful beach, and the accommodations are top notch. Beautiful, tranquil and relaxing. The cabinas were all in great shape, and the pool was such a great bonus. More than anything, the staff is what made Blue Surf... More

My wife and our 8 month old daughter just spent 8 days at Blue Surf. We had an amazing time, partly because of the fantastic natural beauty of that area, but mostly because of the staff at Blue Surf. Sofia, Julia, Jude, Toro, Domingo, Luz and Mariella were all incredibly friendly and easy going people. They were so helpful, informative... More

Out stay at the Blue Surf was second to none. If you are looking into Santa Teresa, I can't imagine a more unique, comfortable place. With only four bungalows we were able to get to know everyone else staying at the place. There is plenty of space to lunge around (and with a fridge and blender at your disposal at... More
