From the start Don Jon's service was excellent. The staff (Rute and John) were very informative and super fast in replying my emails. I stayed there for three nights in one of their private rooms(w/o AC). The room was very comfortable, super clean, great ceiling fan and very safe. At night Don Jon has a super cool security guard that makes you feel even more secure. For breakfast you got try their breakfast burritos ($7) and their fruit shakes!!! I am a big guy and one was PLENTY OF FOOD after a couple hours of surfing!!! If you feel like cooking your own food, Don Jon has a kitchen with pots/pans, utensils and plates for you to use.
Don John's location was good. There are a few supermarkets, sodas,restaurants and shops a couple meters away. The beach... just around the corner!!!!! Downtown Santa Tereza is a bit far... (20min walk), but that to me was not an issue to me.
June is low season in CR, so if you want to party...that is not a good time to go. If you are up for good surfing, chill... I really recommend!!!!!
