“Stop looking. This is it.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 15, 2013 via mobile

We booked two other hotels, walked in, and cancelled before stumbling on this gem. We were greeted with hugs, a cold drink, and a clean, spacious room.

Lunch at the restaurant was reasonable ($8/salad) albeit slightly higher than the rest of town, and on site yoga was a treat. The real cherry on top: the organic cotton sheets, rainfall shower, and waste-free approach. Who doesn't love knowing the local goat is well-fed as a result of your own trash?

Thanks Adi and Eric for your warm hospitality - I'm dreaming of the moment I'm back!

My wife and I stayed there for a week. We were in Santa Teresa for the first time and Arik and Adi were great hosts. Adi had each if our days planned and arranged all of the details. It helped make our vacation much more relaxing!

We have now stayed in three places at around the $100 mark. Nautilus was a touch more but what you get for that little extra is considerable. Their attention to detail in the rooms is really lovely from the beach-bath towels to the natural soap/shampoo they provide.
The grounds are beatiful as is the pool and the plants surrounding the apartments offer privacy on the balcony.
It's also in a great location, close to restaurants and the beach.
The owners were always visible and friendly, and staff more than happy to sit down and map out a days itinerary.

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...
