“Amazing Christmas at Hotel Nautilus”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 6, 2012

We just returned from a fabulous Christmas and NYE spent with Hotel Nautilus. Arik, Adi, Eddie and little Gaia were an absolute pleasure and bent over backwards to help us with our many many questions!
The hotel is beautiful and in a perfect location in Santa Teresa - only a few minutes walk from the beach.
And we were lucky as the restaurant opened during our stay - Adi makes the most delicious and healthy food!
We really hope to be able to stay again soon, and highly recommend the hotel to anyone else, it's great!!

Room Tip: We had the only 2 bedroom villa there, which had a perfect location looking right over the swimming...

We visit Santa Teresa/Mal Pais every two years and have stayed in numerous places throughout the years. By far, Nautilus is the best place to stay. The rooms are clean, modern and well designed. The grounds are stunning. Two minute walk to one of the best surf beaches. The restaurant is amazing. Best smoothie you will have on your entire holiday! Adi and Arik are simply wonderful. Always available to make suggestions and help out with anything. They really made this visit the best one yet. I would highly recommend staying here!!

My husband and I travel often and stayed here for almost two weeks. We had an incredible time and Adi greeted us right when we got here with love and a huge smile and warm welcome.
Arik and and Edi are on top of what to do and recommended fantastic restaurants and the food and smoothies and overall vibe of the place is very much due to the nurture and love the owners put into it. We felt very much like family by the time we left and didn't want to go home.
Highly recommended, in a great location to get to restaurants but not in the hustle and center of Mal Pais/Santa Teresa cross roads. Love it here.

My wife and I traveled in Costa Rica during the rainy season, August 2011.
We arrived to Santa Teresa in the southern part of the Nicoya peninsula, expecting to stay there a day or so, after which we were supposed to move on.
But things turned out a little different, for we soon found ourselves under the magical spell of the unique Santa Teresa, and stayed there for almost a week which included 5 nights at the Nautilus.
The place has 5 or 6 great suites (living room, bed room, kitchen, bathroom and a front porch), there's a nice swiimming pool, and the most fantastic outdoor vegetarian resturant. No words can descrice the fantastic natural food we had.
The owners, a nice warm hearted modest young family, will go out of their way to make you feel good, and acomodate your needs.
Eco-Tourism with human warmth. Simple clean & tidy, with a genuinely commited staf, and most important: VERY close to one of the best beaches on the planet. Highly recomended. Do not miss this special place (and do not miss the home-smoked-fish sandwitch) !

Me and my fiancé stayed in on the tail end of our trip on the necoya . The owners were awesome is setting everything up for us(atv rentals,surfing, hot spots etc.) edi and adi are the nicest hosts a couple could ask for. It's a 2 minute walk to the beautiful beach and away from all the hustle in town. They have great breakfast in the morning. The rooms are amazing, you basically have a beautiful fully furnished condo all to yourself with a patio. I got sick the 2nd to last day and edi and adi gave me all the natural healing to make me feel better and I was very grateful. So I would definitely recommend this place to anyone traveling to ST

We returned this week after a long trip in Costa Rica and a month ago we visited Santa Teresa. we were going to stay there for two nights , stayed four, and sorry we did not stay longer.
The family how runs the place hosted us graciously . Adi makes amazing organic food that gives a good feeling for body and soul. We met other guests there all lovely and the atmosphere there is very pleasant thanks to the lovely people who run the place.
