This was the first of two stops for us on our first visit to Costa Rica, and we couldn't have asked for a better place to call home for 3 days.
Service-Fantastic. We were want for nothing. They set up our cab to and from the airport, our stand-up paddleboarding excursion (with transportation), and our ATV rental. No question went unanswered.
Accomodations-Slightly rustic, but extremely clean and comfortable. Great views. Fairly quiet, although not sound-proof, by any means. But we were never disturbed.
Location-Central to everything in Santa Teresa. You are up a steep hill, and the property has many stairs, so be forewarned.
Food-Great. The fruit juices are worth the trip alone. We only sampled the breakfasts, and they were really well done. Go with the wheat bagel. Their teas are made from herbs grown on the property, and are perfect.
Negatives-This would be nitpicking, really. We stayed in Cabin 1, and the WiFi was spotty. But if that's the only complaint, you're doing okay. I mentioned the steep hill, and you're a 5-10 minute walk to the beach, but like I said, if you know that going in, you should have nothing to worry about.
(Also be forewarned-like most places we went, you don't flush your toilet paper. It's really not a big deal, and is never noticable here.)
Overall, a fantastic place to stay, especially for the rates they charge. You'd have a hard time doing better in Santa Teresa, or anywhere else in Nicoya Peninsula.
