“Best trip ever!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 11, 2011

My friend and I have just returned from Costa Rica and we are already planning our next trip back, thanks to the incredible time we had at El Rey Patricio. The hotel was really great, with our cabana over looking the pristine waters of Costa Rica. The rooms were clean and spacious, and the cabana deck was the perfect place for us to catch up on all the days activities- which included learning how to surf courtesy of the Sunset Surf School at the hotel. Gustavo our surf instructor, was an excellent instructor and made my friend and I feel very safe & comfortable in the water, not to mention catch a few waves and improve our surfing. I would highly recommend him!! We also really enjoyed hanging out at the hotel since the staff was so warm and inviting, and the food there was delicious. While I ate a ton of delicious food in Mal Pais, I really miss my coffee and pinto breakfast in the morning, and my steak kabobs in the evening at El Rey Patricio. And don't pass up the pizza because you will be shocked by how fresh & crispy it is.

5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 21, 2010

We stayed April 16th in the ocean side room and we really enjoyed our stay. The hotel is located at the very northern end of Santa Theresa beach, away from the crowds and noise of the town. It is one of only a handful of hotels in Santa Teresa that is right next to the beach, so the sound of the ocean lulls you to sleep at night. They have a great bar and restaurant, great food and the property is maintained very well. We had several iguanas greet us as we walked up the steps to the reception desk. Also, the beach across the street from the hotel has some natural pools that are excellent for snorkeling, and El Rey has snorkeling gear for you to use. We want to thank Gustavo for an excellent stay.
