“surfers paradise”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 7, 2013

it was my third time at the pacifica and i had the best time ever,
big clean rooms with a kitchen so you can make your owen meals and never leave to the dusty rode.
amazing balcony with sitting set and a hummock so you can comfortably relax after your surf season. the pool is just in front.
simon the owner is a soul surfer how will give you all the tips you need to know for the best surf vacation you'll have.
the location of this place is right on the spot for the best brake in the area. you will get waves every day!!! the smoothies bar is great and you can enjoy some great drinks during the day.
its a very quit place hidden in the jangle far from the noise and the dust from the street.
if you looking for a quite clean comfortable place with a good AC to escape the mid day heat, this is the place.

Room Tip: the rooms on the second floor have a great blocky and best view.

We spent a week in Santa Teresa at Pacifica Surf Studios and will definitely go back. The place is just off the "main drag" which makes it very close walking distance to restaurants and shops. It's also only 2 minutes from the beach which was great for morning and evening walks. We don't surf, but, the waves right in front of the hotel were good and there was no lack of surfing happening. The rooms are large and roomy with a private balcony where we had coffee every morning and listened to the howler monkeys. The pool is perfect for cooling off in the afternoon as it was in the 90's while we were there. Coco, the owner's doberman, was a perfect guide. She walked with us on the beach every day! It's just overall a very relaxing place. Perfect for vacation!!

This is by far the best place to stay if you are interested in a clean, safe, quiet and close location to the beach. Simone the owner was wonderful and the staff was great. We had our toilet leaking and fixed right away. The location is 100 ft from the beach and right off the main trail. A/C was perfect and pool was clean. There is a night guard on premises and coco the dog was always around to make sure everything was in check. Get price and will be staying here the next time I come for sure. Recommend no other place in Santa Teresa than this place!!

I have been on 2 surf trips to Santa Teresa and stayed here both times. Pacifica Surf Studios sits in the tropical forest about 50 meters from the best surf break around. The place is beautiful with natural hardwood flooring/ceiling, a pool, and landscaping that creates the perfect tropical environment you would expect. The studio rooms have either one or two beds, a fouton, refrigerator, some small appliances, and a beautiful porch overlooking the pool and yard. They also have surfboard and ATV rentals available as well as a natural juice bar. Everyone in the area is extremely friendly and welcoming, especially Simone, the owner and his guard dog "Coa-Coa". The surf there is awesome, never a flat day. I've caught waves there from waist high to well overhead and always had a blast. PSS is actually one of the closest places to the beach and the main break, making it perfect for surfers. I highly recommend PSS and hope to return there next year!

Love this place! Was super stoked on the location....steps from the beach. And loved how peaceful and quiet it was despite the fact that it was steps from town too! Simone, Pepe, and the rest of the staff were very helpful and kind. Our room was clean and spacious and bright n sunny, exactly like the pictures on the web site. I'd definitely recommend it to others and would stay here again!

I stayed at Pacifica Surf Studios for a month and I loved the place from the first to the last day of my stay. Why? Most of all because of the atmosphere, it's really friendly and chill. Everybody working here are very helpfull and always sending out a smile.
You get to have your own privacy if you like, the balcony are amazing, lots of space. And you can hang out at the new chill out area where they have a bar if you feel like meeting new people (they serve the best vegetarian burger ever! and the guys working there are so sweet and helpful)
The rooms are bigger than I expected and nice and clean.
One of the main reasons why I choose to stay here was because of the location. It's so close to the beach!! you walk up and down in 2 minutes.

I would really recommend Pacifica Surf Studios to anyone looking for a nice place to stay while in Costa Rica.

Room Tip: I stayed in an upstair studio, really liked it. The downstair studio looked really nice too.
