My new favorite place in the world! When I first arrived to this hotel I was overwhelmed with the natural beauty of the property. Tucked away up a dirt road, in the jungle, on the side of a mountain, the views of the Pacific took my breath away. From here you have a great view of the town below. Though it is a steep road up the mountain it is well worth it to escape the loud, dusty parade of trucks, motorcycles and 4 wheelers zooming down the main road of the town. Away from it all, there is no better place to be than sitting in the pool, watching the incredible sunsets and WILD MONKEYS, cocktail in hand of course.
Traveling alone, I felt like I had come to visit old friends. The owners (and their two dogs, Reef and Zuma), could not of been more welcoming or helpful in helping me on this trip. The only bad thing I have to say is after over indulging on the wonderful culinary treats of the Italian chef / owner Michele I have left my no-carb diet in the dust! Being in Beautiful Santa Teresa, Costa Rica with a wonderful Italian chef leaves no need to visit Italy...
Much appreciation to Sonny as well for organizing surf lessons and transportation for me as well. These two guys helped to make Santa Teresa a trip I will never forget. And I can not wait to be back in that pool watching the sunset with a cocktail in hand soon!
