“Such a great place!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 9, 2012

Principe del Pacifico was the best decision we made for our trip to Santa Teresa. The owners are really wonderful people. They helped out a ton with suggestions for dining, activities, rentals, surfing, etc.

The rooms are impecable. The design and styling makes you feel right at home. After a long day, kick back on a hammock or take it easy in the pool. Best of all it's only 100 mts to one of the best beaches in the world!

I will be staying here again without a doubt!

Towards the end of a four week trip of Panamá and Costa Rica we stumbled on the Principe del Pacifico in playa Santa Teresa. We met the Italian owners who couldn’t have been more helpful and welcoming and made us feel right at home and most notably we felt that their welcoming was sincere!

The apartment itself is new with all the mod cons that will set you up for your stay in playa Santa Teresa. It is a couple of minutes’ walk to the beach and there are some really good restaurants close by.

Bottom line about this hotel is that I would never write a review on trip advisor but the wonderful experience I had in this place inspired me to.

The Hotel is brand new and kept in impecable condition with cold a/c and a comfortable bed where you could really relax after a day of yoga and surfing. The owners make you feel right at home, warm and very helpful. The location is next to the best area for surfing and great restaurants. There is no better place to stay and relax in this area.

I and my friends Valerio started our trip in Costa Rica visiting Santa Teresa as first step. Should be an only 2 days visit for each place, but arrived at principe del pacifico hotel, the tipically italian hospitality, the very good food and the beautifull place charmed us, and We stayed one week at Santa Teresa. The owner Mr. Cristian guided us in a fantastic walk into the jiungle, at Canapi in montezuma park and along the most beautifull playas where I had the opportunity to take cool shots with my camera. I suggest you to visit my gallery on www.flickr.com/photos/e-Rinaldi than prepare an hand baggage with 2 T shirts and 2 sea shorts and run to contact this hotel in order to live a fantastic jungle/surf/food/relax experience more than only see some places!! I wish you Pura Vida! Tank you principe!!
