“Welcoming Oasis”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 24, 2013

We were so lucky to end up at Nautilus after leaving the hotel we had originally booked but were not happy with. We were greeted with hugs and told to 'go rest', which was exactly what we wanted to do. We stayed in a one bedroom apt type villa. The king size bed was very comfortable and the ac was strong and cooled the whole space. The kitchen was completely set up in case you want to cook and eat in or at least make coffee. They have a glorious pool area, the most beautiful plants and trees, the water was so clean and warm. We never felt crowded here, plenty of private space. They have an on site restaurant Olam which is vegetarian and attracts people from all over. The ingredients are all organic when possible and everything is make with LOVE. They have an open air yoga studio with classes 2x a day for $10. They also have Zumba and you can get a massage. The location was central to everything including lots of delicious restaurants and the beach. I would definitely return for many reasons especially the warmth of the owners who made us feel so special and taken care of ! Thanks for a wonderful Stay!! xo

My husband and I went here for a honeymoon right after our wedding… It was better that we could've ever expected, and the owners were wonderful and helped us with everything, including being stung by a jellyfish!! Highly recommend this place

We visited Santa Teresa through the Chica Surf Adventure. When we realized that we could NOT stay at the Funky Monkey (which is quite funky) we decided to move to the Nautilus. The owners were amazing and accommodating and bent over backward to ensure we had a fabulous time. The property is exquisite, the restaurant to die for and the service is unlike anything we saw in CR. Stay there. Love it.

Our friend strongly recommended Nautilus to us and he was right on the spot!!
This place is simply amazing, Adi and Gal (the owners) will go out of their way to make you feel like home, the food, the facility , the staff ,the location and basically everything was perfect.
Couldn't ask for better vacation, they made our whole experience much more unique!
Will definitely go back again and again...

Simply put; I fell in love with this little town called santa-Teresa. The Nautilus rooms, restaurants, location, atmosphere and especially the people make this place one of my favorite destinations. Charming, friendly, inviting...

I had such a wonderful time at Nautilus and hope to return very soon!! The owners, Arik and Adi are such warm and welcoming people, and they really made me feel at home. At the same time they were super professional and booked surf lessons, massages, kayaking, and transportation for me, so I didn't have to worry about anything.

The villa was very comfortable and spacious, (bigger than my NYC pod!), had a great bed and sufficiently equipped kitchen, and was cleaned daily. The pool was refreshing both in early mornings and late nights, and the grounds are lush and well kept. The yoga classes (twice a day at $10) taught by Karen and Sandra were a bliss.

Every morning I enjoyed the amazing and healthy smoothies from the on-site restaurant Olam, and their super yummy raspberry/apple and chocolate muffins made me beg for the recipe!

Santa Teresa itself is a friendly little surfer town with a great vibe, and there are plenty of activities to choose from. I visited at the beginning of the rainy season, and we had some refreshing and much welcomed showers a few nights.

Overall, my two-week stay at Nautilus was wonderful,and I definitely recommend the hotel to others!

We didn't stay at the hotel, but the food at the cafe was so amazing. The smoothies were big enough to have as a meal, and the food was superb. Plus, the owner was there and he was very friendly, just like the staff. Next visit to Sta Teresa we will definitely stay there!
