“Enjoyed a lot staying in atrapasueños.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 9, 2012

A very hospitable hotel very well located, almost in front of the beach, in a spot of the beach, where if you go one way, you find good relaxing and swiming spots, if you go the other, big waves for surfing. The beach in this part is full of trees providing shadow durind the whole day. It is full of nature and wildlife, we saw monkeys, plenty of beach fauna and birds.

The swimming pool is great: it has the right temperature and allows for a relaxing and refreshing swim at any time.

Staff is very friendly and eager to help and please you.

A nice extra is the fully equiped kitchen they provide for guests to use. We could store plenty of refreshments and fruits in the fridge to enjoy them any time we wanted.

The garden and the building are in great shape. We definitely will come back and recommended Atrapasueños.

We stumbled upon this amazing hotel by recommendation of a local. We intended to stay a night or two, but loved it so much we stayed all 5 nights. Great location- 30 seconds from the beach, across the street from a market, and restaurants- all while maintaining a secluded quaint atmosphere. You can relax in your rooms private hammock on the balcony, or socialize in the quaint covered patio overlooking the pool. Its equipped with a shared kitchen indoors, or an outdoor kitchen for grilling- superb amenenaties! The rooms were clean and the beds were comfortable. We loved the pool and the sheik comfortable sun chairs for afternoon (and morning) relaxation. The host was gracious, and friendly. He even invited us to to a fresh seafood cookout in the outdoor kitchen. We had a wonderful time and can't wait to return!

Room Tip: They are all good rooms!

This place is nestled between all the tropical trees of the jungle with a 2 min walk down the path to the beach. My twins had lots of room to run around the beautiful grounds/garden/pool while I relaxed in the hammock watching them play. We beached it in the am and pool time in the pm. Perfect for our family. Rooms were spacious, clean, wonderful breakfast and short walk to the shops/restaurants. Just loved this place!

2 Minutes to the beach and close to shopping but SECLUDED! This is a beautiful place to stay. Community kitchen and the rooms are VERY clean and beautiful. My room had a beautiful private deck! I could never decide either to swim in the ocean or at the beautiful pool! Great place and a great deal! Highly recommend.

My family of 4 and another family of 4 spent 6 nights at Atrapasuenos. We rented the top floor and it was perfect for our group: a full kitchen, a huge veranda where we could hang out together, a room we used as a movie and play room for the kids, and very comfortable and clean bedrooms and baths. The grounds are very nice and the pool is really perfect. There's private parking, it's a very short walk to the beautiful beach, and there are grocery stores and restaurants literally across the street and next store. We saw the other guests but noise didn't travel. The owners and staff were very accommodating, but we had to approach them (they never asked if we needed anything). They arranged excursions for us when asked and were friendly. We thought breakfast was included but were told upon arrival it wasn't because we rented the entire floor, which didn't seem like a very clear explanation; the rooms were tidied everyday, but there were no accessible cleaning supplies so we couldn't sweep and had to buy our own dish soap and paper towels. None of this was a big deal though and really meant that we were left alone. There were no intrusions. Ultimately it felt like our own private home and that made our stay in Santa Teresa all the more comfortable and enjoyable.

We rented three of the four rooms. It was perfect for a group of families with teenagers - clean pool, a delicious breakfast made for us each morning, walking distance to restaurants, a short walk to the beach. The pool and shaded patio are perfect for an afternoon break from the beach sun. The owners are very helpful and kind. We highly recommend Atrapasuenos.
