The location was brilliant literally 70 meters from the best surf of our three week stay in Costa Rica. Upstairs studio rooms are the best giving you aspect over the pool and through the trees to the beach. Room was clean and with aircon made sleeping easy. Great people looking after the place far enough away from the main strip... More

There were only two thin, very lumpy pillows and a thin sheet on the bed, which was not nearly enough if the AC was on, and the room was intolerable with the AC off. There was a loud squeaking noise from just outside that went on all night, so we barely slept at all. The shower head was broken off,... More

I stayed for 8 days and absolutely love this place. Its 15 seconds away from the beach and the best surf spot as well as close to all the shops and restaurants on the main street. The studios are big, vey clean and you get an instant "home " feeling. Balconies have big tables and a hammock to relax. There... More

Pacifica Surf Studio is the retreat of your dreams. Settled in beautiful, scenic Santa Teresa Costa Rica, Pacifica Surf studio is luxurious, relaxing, friendly and accommodating. It is one of the only places along the strip with a pool! Pacifica surf is conveniently close to the beach. And great for advanced or beginner surfers.

We are 2 couples in our late 20s that were just there. At first, it wasn't so bad, mostly because it is located right next to the beach and CR itself is beautiful. Otherise, the hotel itself inside and out was dirty the whole time. No hot water whatsoever for 10 days + gross pool full of dead crabs and... More

The best asset of this property is its location, less than a block to the beach and just a block away from two of the most delicious cafes- Zwart Cafe and Olam. So, you do not need car or bike while staying. The upstairs studios were very cozy and confortable, with a balcony with enough room for practicing yoga (2... More

I most concede the location - beach and supermarket wise - is great. The pool needed maintenance I ended cleaning it from leaves, dead insects and other trash myself so my kids could swim in it. My rating would had been higher but there was an incident where I was mistreated as a customer, and felt almost as a criminal... More

This place is just as good as it can be if you are looking for a great surfing experience. The place is literally 50 mts from the beach, in the morning you just grab your board, walk 50 mts and start surfing. Security is there 24/7 and the place is clean and very well maintained.
