I booked the Wipe Out Retreat at the Greens Rooms, it was an amazing experience. Dave and Russ were attentive hosts providing some of the best and healthiest food I've ever had. Diana the yoga instructor was very sympathetic to people with injuries and little experience in yoga as was our surf instructor. The retreat included two massages a week... More

What a GEM! I have just returned home from what may have been one of the most rejuvenating and happy weeks of my life thanks to the wonderful hospitality enjoyed at The Green Rooms. Dave and Russ were incredible hosts at The Green Rooms and went above and beyond taking care of 10 goofy yogis who enjoyed a week of... More

Dave, Russ, and the rest of the Green Rooms crew do an excellent job maintaining the wonderful space. The architecture is very open and the area is surrounded by the jungle flora and fauna. The rooms are quaint and nice, but you pretty much only spend time in them to change clothes and sleep at the end of the day.... More

Spent two weeks here surfing with friends. Dave and Russ couldn't have been more helpful. Flexible to our needs depending on the surf and happy to adjust meal times upon request. The food was cracking with Russ creating some master pieces. Located a short walk from the main road its far enough to give you seclusion and security but close... More

Travelled here in 2012 (a few years back), amazing location in a middle of jungle yet only 10 min walk to the beach. The camp has everything you need; fans, pool, fast internet, drinking water. Dave was a great camp owner, and very knowledgeable about the area. Surf was amazing too. Would definitely recommend if you're in Costa Rica

You certainly can't go wrong booking your stay with Russ and Dave. I traveled to Costa Rica by myself in Dec/Jan and I very pleased with my accomodations. The location is a bit off the beaten path, but it's a short 5 minute walk to the market, beach, stores, etc. It's hard not to like Dave and Russ, as they... More

This place is beautifully tucked away in the jungle with a river running beside it which will take your breath away. The owner David brown is the most helpful with any questions regarding travel arrangements, tours within the area, and anything that he can help you with. Very chilled atmosphere with nature surrounding you and the beach only 5 minutes... More

What can I say about the Green Rooms? This place has the kind of vibe that keeps you coming back. I can say that because i've been back twice now and even after the second time I still just know that I'll be back again one day. What sets this place apart is that it has a communal feeling and...

I've been twice in the green rooms , the best place in Santa Teresa! In the nature, far from the noise, close to the surf spots, very chill and very nice owner. I definitely recommend it! And there is a pool which is really enjoyable with the weather there.
