This place was great, as long as you aren't expecting a standart hotel. I stayed in Casa Tucano which is typical for most of the little villas there, at $30 a night for a 2 floor bungalow with thatched rooftops - the price couldn't be beat for the green season. We had our own little cabana surrounded by foliage so it felt more like our own little jungle house than a hotel. At night we had the porch to ourselves and the sounds of monkeys were the only thing that may of kept me awake.
There was a private gate for us, with a driveway (perfect for renting a 4x4), additional outdoor shower, and little front yard and porch. Inside the house was a TV, very nice clean full bathroom, and window that opens out to the porch where there are hammocks waiting for you. Upstairs was the bed, which admittedly was very hot on the second floor (as was the entire country during the green season) so if you really are incapable of living without AC then this isn't the spot for you. You can rent a villa for significantly more which does have AC, but if you are the kind of person headed to Santa Teresa/Mal Pais then you can probably rough it for a few days and if you get hot go take a dip in the ocean!
I thought this spot was a great cheap solution for those staying in Santa Teresa. The service was totally adequate (towel sculptures were left on our bed every day) and every grain of sand was clean from our room by the time we came back from a day of exploring. It is not a 5 star resort, but if you are looking for a nice clean, private spot to relax that is comfortable and mellow, then this is the place for you. In fact, we may go back this summer!
