We were three girlfriends on holiday in Santa Teresa and at least 5 times a day we would comment on how wonderful the resort was and how it just felt like home but a million times nicer. This resort is incredible and right on the beach. You can venture to all of the beautiful beaches that are at most a 10-45 minute drive away.
The pool next door where we had our breakfast was quiet and nice with a great ocean view. There were daily activities that were not cheesy like some resorts, all the tours we did were private, no other guests, it was upscale and very high quality. We made friends with Lacreshia (sp?), she's charming, beautiful and very peasant to be around. I practiced sunrise yoga with one of the resort dogs Seba, it was blissfully relaxing on their personal yoga decks just in front of the beach. Josefina at the front desk is very helpful and easy to talk to. The guys we took surf classes helped us find excellent snorkeling and beaches to check out. The villa we rented was spectacular. I have stayed in some nice places but this exceeded all of my expectations. We chose the resort because of the kitchen in each room. We wanted to cook our own meals and not spend money on resort food. This was the perfect way to go since Santa Teresa is sleepy and if you want to eat late you might have a hard time finding a good place that's open. The kitchen had everything you could need to cook a gourmet meal and we tried out almost everything. Not only is it well stocked but it's nice stuff, nothing cheap. There was nothing cheap about this). The bedrooms and bathroom were big, beautiful and oh so comfortable. Free wireless internet was a little slow one day but the rest of the time is was lightening fast. The mini bar was full of goodies and they allow you to stock your kitchen with whatever you want for far less from a market, the best of both worlds. Overall the resort is something special and I would stay here again. You could conceivably stop at the grocery store on your way from the airport and not leave the resort for a week because it's so well planned. Enjoy!
