We've been there during offseason, so it was quiet and lean back. Just perfect for Surfers. The place is nice nature kept, so you can actually still see the monkeys in the trees while sitting in the pool. The stuff was courteous, friendly and always there for a little chat. The

This place charges more than the prices they advertise online.. Very unethical & unprofessional, in my opinion. The WiFi also only works half the time. I think there's plenty of other options that are a better value for money in Santa Teresa.

Hi There. We never mislead people in any ways. Prices on internet are very diverse depending on different sites where you search for rooms. We are constantly making offers on line to keep our place busy. So, you would find different prices depending on dates, time of the year, type of room and so on. Please don't judge us for that! And regarding WiFi, it only works on public areas as it has been set for. and shows in our site. Sincerely Martin Cuesta Arriba Hotel

Hi Marissa! Nice to hear from you. Thank you for your kind words, We really appreciate your feedback. Likely the construction nextdoor is finished so now the only noise to hear is the one from the jungle!!! ( Monkeys, birds, etc etc). We hope to see you on your next visit to Costa Rica!!! Cheers Martin Cuesta Arriba Hotel

This hotel is not a 5 star hotel, but I gave it 5 stars for what it was, a clean, simple place to stay with air conditioning for a reasonable price in Santa Teresa. Quick and helpful check in, we observed the available rooms before selecting. Walking distance to the beach and
