“10/10 hotel for service,food, cleanliness and location.Amazing!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 5, 2014 via mobile

Myself and my boyfriend have just completed a 10night stay at Nautilus. The hotel itself is beautiful, the grounds,rooms and restaurant are immaculate. The rooms are gorgeous with a very comfortable and very large bed. Each has its own hammock on its porch to relax in the sunshine.
The hotel pool is small but perfect with sun loungers and umbrellas to get some shade in the super hot weather.
The hotels restaurant Olam does the most delicious organic food. Scrummy smoothies,iced coffees and homemade guacamole and hummus just a few of our favourites.
I have NEVER stayed in a hotel where the staff have been as welcoming,friendly and helpful as Nautilus, including the owner Adi. They were there to give restaurant reviews,book taxis, arrange ATV hire and so much more throughout our stay.
Yoga upstairs on the outdoor yoga deck was just super
And definitely worth a try.
The hotel is a very short walk
From the main Santa Teresa road and across this road leads to the beach-about a 5min walk from the hotel-and your straight onto the hottest surf spot in Santa Teresa.
Stop looking for other hotels in Santa Teresa and book this one-you won't be disappointed.

I loved our stay at the Nautilus. Owners were on site daily and were friendly and helpful. The atmosphere was serene and peaceful. Yoga classes daily. The restaurant made the most wonderful meals and the best smoothies! I would highly recommend!

Room Tip: All rooms are perfectly located.

Most reviews talk about how great the hotel was. This is true, the rooms, pool, staff, etc, all fantastic! I usually want more info on other things besides this. Like location to beach, restaurants , should I rent a car & so on. My review is going to focus on Santa Teresa & things outside of the Nautilus. Location is one of the most important decisions when booking a vaca for me & my wife. Nautilus has a really good location. It's a minute walk down to the beach. I did a lot of surfing so this was perfect. I was able to rent a board for the week, keep it at the hotel & could walk down to beach with it. We also were able to walk to restaurants from the hotel. On the days that we wanted to check out resturants that were a little farther we had rented a ATV. Everything you need to rent or book Adi ( owner of the hotel ) helped us with. If you want to eat at your room you could go to market that is also walking distance. The hotel rooms have kitchens with everything you need. Another important thing to do is bring cash. A good amount of resturants didn't except credit cards. I also had to use cash for the surf rental, horse back riding & ATV rental . The rooms have a safe so dont worry. As for the car rental I dont think they even had it. Most people were on ATV's . If you can't ride one they have taxi service that the hotel can set up for you. Santa Teresa is a very laid back town. Dirt roads, surf/ yoga village , relaxing place. Favorite things my wife & I did were surfing, horseback riding & relaxing by the pool with a drink. All in all we had a great stay at the Nautilus hotel. I would highly recommend booking a vacation here.

We've stayed here many times and had our families stay here for our wedding. It's one of my favorite hotels ever. There's an amazing vegan / vegetarian restaurant in the hotel and a beautiful yoga studio. The rooms are luxurious and the pool area is enchanting. The owners have become dear friends of our because they treat everyone like family. I recommend all my clients to stay there as well through costarima.com.

Room Tip: There are beautiful one bedrooms or a two bedroom villa to choose from!

We stayed here for a week. The facility is amazing, spotlessly clean, and the staff are so friendly. I can't say enough good things bout this place, other than go there, it is worth it. We will be back to Costa Rica and to the Nautilus.

Our family stayed here for a week over Spring break in March 2014. Great place, with very friendly staff. Excellent food, location. A/C, showers work perfectly. Spotless rooms. Our favorite place to stay, hands down.
