I could not have imagined a better experience. Blue Surf was clean, fun, friendly and beautiful giving the impression of a monestary and a relaxed party. It was a warm community of guests and he staff was reactive to every want or need. The surf instructor, Toro, was warm and professional. I received his detailed analysis into all things surf,...

We spent Christmas and New Years at Blue Surf. We had a party of 9, my sister and her family, and my family, 4 adults and 5 teenagers. We rented all 4 villas so we could spread out and enjoy the place all to ourselves. The villas were very clean and spacious. The shower areas were well done, and large,... More

Blue Surf Sanctuary went above and beyond, from the moment we landed in Costa Rica until after we left. The staff were all very friendly and personable, helping us with everything we could need. The bungalow's are very well maintained and clean and the kitchen had everything we needed for preparing our own meals. Would highly recommend staying here, just... More

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

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
