“Memorable...”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 2, 2013

I've always been against giving an "excellent" rating to all categories on a review as it might seem a biased or a not serious review, however there is always an exception to every rule. In this case it applies to my recent stay at Latitude10.
Amazing grounds and very attentive staff, combined with the unpretentious but tasteful luxury of the hotel's architecture, and the never ending music provided by the sea and the property's permanent residents (monkeys, birds, iguanas), make for a truly unique, relaxing, and memorable escape. Latitude10 breaks the mold, and hence, I break my rules. Overall, excellent!
David Simon

Room Tip: Both Master Suite and Junior Suite offered a true symphony of sounds of the sea and forest.

What a beautiful resort! The cabanas are romantic and a great place to just relax and enjoy the natural beauty of Costa Rica. At night, you slip into the comfy bed and feel the cool breeze blowing across the sheets...as the sound of the ocean lulls you to sleep. The staff are so friendly and helpful! I felt like I was at home with friends. We went during the rainy season so brought several swimsuits (it takes a while for one to dry out). We also brought repellant, a flashlight, and stuff to read (although they have books and games there for you to borrow). We plan to go back!

Room Tip: The Master Suit has a lot more space and is closer to the ocean, but all the rooms are very nice.

This is a must do! A great place/area to unplug and re-charge yourself.
I traveled with my husband and 9 year old daughter. We had a master suite which had plenty of room for 3 people. Understated, casual, luxury. I almost cried when we had to leave!

We went in August, during the "green season" so it did rain everyday, mostly in the evening.
the advantages of the green season, are less crowds and everything is, well, green. Beautiful and lush. The disadvantages are that not everything is open for business, as some places shut down until November and there is a fair amount of mud and muddy roads. Once you adjust, it's not so bad.

Besides the beautiful scenery and accommodations, it is the staff that makes this place so special. Juan, Hector, Marcella, Jose and the rest were all so friendly, helpful, and kind.
My husband an I celebrated our wedding anniversary while we were there and the staff surprised us with a cake. It was such a nice gesture. Made our day!

The food at the property was always excellent. Nice selection, beautiful presentation, fresh, fresh, fresh. Just great. Most of the off site dining was great, as well. It is a little pricier than I had expected. Usually about $45-70 per meal for 3 people.

If you go, rent a car. Walking around is not the easiest thing to as there are no sidewalks and the dirt , yes, dirt road is a little rough. We rented an SUV and had no problem getting around and navigating the area. The scenery is breathtaking. Get out and check it out!

Juan organized a couple of tours for us. Our tour guide Adrienne, from Olingo tours was great.
Very knowledgeable. We did a trip to Curu which we really enjoyed. the white face monkeys
were really fun to watch.

This is a VERY casual area. Dress clothes are not needed. No high heels or sport coats.


We would go back to Latitude 10 in a heartbeat and would highly recommend a stay there!

We always wanted to go to Costa Rica, we've heard so many good things. So when we got the offer from Sniquaway (Jettsetter), my wife and I seized the opportunity, and we couldn't have been more pleased. we stayed 5 nights and from the moment that we made our reservations the staff couldn't have been more accommodating. After realizing that we had booked for the worst time of the year, we asked if we could move our date...no problem. They had Richard, the driver meet us at the aiport in Tambor and were welcomed by Juan at the entrance of the property, he made us feel at home, we were completely comfortable. Maricella (sp) Hector, Juan, Jose, Mario and the rest of the staff went out of their way to make everything perfect for us. Originally, we planned on doing several excursions, but once we arrived we just wanted to relax most of the time. The breakfast of Gallo Pinto every morning was both delicious and satisfying. The pool was perfect for relaxing. We ate dinner there on two nights, both were excellent, the fish is extremely fresh and a three course meal prepared by a private chef at $30 is a great bargain, we wish that we had done it more. Anytime we wanted to go somewhere or do anything, it was done and done with a smile. My wife had a massage from Gaston, and said it was the best massage she ever had. It was REALLY one of the nicest places that we had ever visited, probably because it is so small that the staff and visitors kind of get to know each other, by the end of our trip they made us feel like one of the family. I will bullet some of the highlights and tips:

1. The place is very causal, take casual clothes and don't worry about getting too dressed for
anything.

2. Take a flashlight, this was mentioned by another reviewer and was a lifesaver. Remember
the sun goes down around 6pm and the Casita is very dimly lit.

3. At least during the "green season" nothing you have will dry.

4. Yes there are critters, no they won't bother you but will get into your Casita. Don't sweat it,
its part of the charm. Also, don't eat or keep food in you Casita, your just inviting them in.

5. If you speak Spanish do, if not at least try.

6. If you leave the property for meals be aware that most restaurants only take cash, and things
are not cheap in Santa Teresa. We spent $110 at Koji's, but you can find better value
around town.

Room Tip: There are only six, but the two masters are best. we had # 2 but would have preferred #3 for the ju...

Thanks to all the wonderful staff at Latitude 10 who made our family vacation from Jamaica to Costa Rica unforgettable. The first thing my kids noticed were the recycled bottles full of plastic at the bar...when Ingacio explained that if they could find a bottle on the beach and fill it with any garbage they collected, they could get a free smoothie...they ran to the beach and started looking for trash (hard to find in Costa Rica)...great idea and we have incorporated here back home. We had a fabulous day fishing (and the chef made incredible cevechie from our catch) and another taking surfing lessons, unforgettable massages (ask for the guy from Argentina) but best of all was renting ATV's and exploring Santa Teresa! We had a great time and we for sure will be back! Thank you to Jose, Ignacio and Maricela and the chefs for making our stay more than a vacation...it was an experience! Nicky, Sharon, Peter, Joan, Toby, Elias and Noa

Room Tip: Close to the beach is best.

Unfortunately, we only booked one night here, as a stop over the first night of our honeymoon. We arrived, exhausted, from months of planning, a weekend of partying, and 24 hours of travel. We were amazed at the beautiful cabana, and were able to relax into the arms of luxury in paradise. It was the first good sleep we had had in months! Everything was pristine, a perfect blend of posh and nature. Everyone who worked there was helpful, kind and personable. Breakfast was amazing! Our every need was exceeded. Even though we only stayed one night, we were invited to hang out and leave our luggage and car long after check out so we could enjoy some time at the beach before moving on. We cannot wait to come back!

Dear Tanessa D,
greetings from Santa Teresa. Thank you very much for your nice review of your mini honeymoon at Latitude 10. We also wish you would have stayed with us for longer. As you well noted, Latitude 10 is a very different kind of experience that works very well for couples that look for a more authentic and experimental honeymoon or romantic getaway. Maybe you can come back for an anniversary. All the best.
