I spent some time at Ranchos Itauna. I stayed in two different rooms while there, both where comfortable, nice beds, hot water, AC, etc... I mostly enjoyed the beach, the hotel is set up just off the sand, so about 100 ft walk from your room and your in a beach combers paradise.
The Hammocks around the property deserve your full attention while there. Also if your a fan of house music or techno beats you need not go anywhere else, they have DJ's playing tunes almost every night, and if your lucky to be around there during the full moon party you will be among one of the largest party crowds in Santa Teresa.
They have a nice little beach bar and restaurant where you can enjoy sunsets and stay into the evening. This place is more about the sunsets, which they call Sunset Sessions, they play downtempo music and serve strong cheap drinks for happy hour, which so happens to coincide with the dropping of the sun.
Be sure to request Foley for any surf lessons you may need, he's not hard to miss seeing as he's the towering 7ft man with the big smile and ALWAYS carrying a balsa surf board on his head :)
For fishing or Fresh FISH look no farther than their local fisherman guru Glen! He can provide everything you need to catch a big one or you can grill up one of Glens catches yourself.
The owners are very accommodating, they speak about 4-5 languages between them, and they are always happy to provide information on where to go eat and play while in town. You get a different feel while staying here, almost like your staying with-in a small community rather than a hotel.
