My daughter and I reserved a room at Zula Inn via anywherecostrarica.com for our first visit to this area. This was a very comfortable hotel, composed of individual cabins, complete with kitchen, outdoor beach shower, and, best of all a shady patio with hammock, table and chairs and a rocker. The staff is extremely helpful and friendly, including the pet dog and cats who came to visit. Rooms are clean and the beds are comfortable. There is a bar/lounge area that is self serve and on the honor system, guests note what they drank on a clipboard. The beach is a short walk away. With the hot mid-day weather, the pool area is a great option for cooling off in the shade after a swim. I would definitely recommend this as a great place to stay in Santa Teresa!
