“Pura Vida in Santa Teresa”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 17, 2012

Barbara was so helpful during our stay! The rooms are beautiful and the pool was always great after a long day of surfing. I really recommend staying here if you want to be in a quiet location that is still very close to the beach and to town.

We stayed at Fuego in Feb. 2011 for a week and had a wonderful time. The owners are great and welcoming, the house was beautiful and everything about our stay was good. The location is right in the center of everything, but still it's so quiet you hear the surf and the howler monkeys.
Highly recommended

Barbara WAS WONDERFUL! We did not pull into the lodge till after midnight but Barbara was waiting for us. We were allowed to use the pool just to relax as we had been up for over 24 hours. She helped us in the morning by giving us ideas of what to do for the day and where to eat. I will be going back and stay there - great room, great service.

Fuego Lodge offered us one of the most amazing experiences away from home, and that's why we are going back for new years. From room service to fishing, on every sport or relaxation we experienced, it was thanks to Barbara and Itay, they made the difference.

Great room. Clean and modern style. Only downside since metal on building when birds drop anything there is a huge crash. Other than that looking forward to my return

Thank you for staying with us and for your useful comments.
We've detected where that "noise" was coming from, and have programed to cover that steel bar within the bathroom ceiling with a foam to keep the banging from happening...
It was really helpful to know that from you, since we don't stay inside the room long enough to get to hear it. We'll address that issue before this next season, thanks to you. :D
I appreciate the support...
Have a great day!!

Barbara and Itay were extremely helpful with all the information before our arrival to santa Teresa and during our stay in the lodge. Barbara prepared the penthouse suite where we stayed with all necessary equipment needed for our special cooking requests (Kosher). The lodge is beautiful with the lights of the swimming pool at night and the relaxing atmosphere in the afternoon, as well as the garden with flowers and trees. The sunset view from the balcony was amazing. The super is just around the corner and the surfing beach is within 5 minutes of walking. Barbara and Itay are so friendly and they went out the way (and this is probably their way) so that our vacation in Santa Teresa will be so enjoyable. Itay is an amazing surfer and the visit with him to Kaboya beach will not be forgotten.
The Fuego is a home away from home and is a place I wish to return back to.
