After a few trips to Santa Teresa, staying at different places each time, I always want to be back at the Funky Monkey.
It's great for a few different reasons:
1) It's a little bit off the main road, which can get really dusty, but it's only a 30 second walk down to a bustling corner with a great little coffee / batido (smoothie) spot (Zwart art cafe), surf shops, market, etc. Quick walk to the beach. Good breaks are all around...
2) The bungalow rooms are really nice. They've got private patios with hammocks. Clean and comfortable.
3) The food is amazing. I've eaten all over ST and the best meals I've had have been at the Funky Monkey. Very diverse, inexpensive and delicious. Don't miss sushi night!
4) It's got a friendly, fun, casual vibe. Really nice common spaces. Everyone is really fun, friendly and welcoming.
Go! It's great.
