You couldn't get a closer spot to the best surf break on the beach which was perfect for my boyfriend who went out every day and had some great waves. Our room had a balcony which had a lovely view of the garden. Unfortunately this place is let down by a few things we were expecting after reading their website and some glowing TA reviews. The pool is out of service; apparently it just needed filling up but that didnt happen. We saw the cleaning lady offering cleaning to other guests, but we weren't offered anything (we dont expect 5-star service). Perhaps we had to request it...but everywhere else we have stayed throughout Central America including places a lot less nicer, includes the offer to clean the room without asking. The communal kitchen is woefully inadequate and dirty, it was lucky we had our own cutlery with us. I wasn't sure who worked there and who was just hanging out, and it was difficult to get their attention; we felt like we were interrupting their conversations. So if you're expecting a kitchen you can cook in, a pool, and basic room service then you may be disappointed; maybe thats what you get for this price in Santa Teresa. But if you just want to surf or hang out down the beach all day and arent worried about those things, then go, as I've said the location couldn't be better!
