Canaima Chill House was perfect for a relaxed and quiet stay in Santa Teresa. It's a beautiful spot tucked away on the hill side away from the bustling and noisy main street. We had a wonderful stay and the staff was super helpful.

My girlfriend and I stayed here in December of 2015 for a week and it surpassed our expectations! Pablo, Juan and Juan Carlos were all amazing. Pablo and Juan helped us schedule surf lessons, an ATV, snorkeling and several amazing meals. If you're traveling to Santa Teresa this is definitely a spot you should stay at. The beach is just...

We had an amazing stay here, the place was beautifully decorated and so relaxing. Paradise. The one tiny thing that could be improved on was the cleanliness of the bathrooms - the shower was quite dirty. Other than that the bedroom was amazing, I loved the decoration and how much space we had. The outside areas were beauitful and so... More

6 of us spent a week here at Christmas time 2015. Very comfortable, cool place. We loved it. It is up a big gravel road hill but we had a car so no issue. The staff was exceptional. They have a cool outdoor pool to cool off in. Monkeys and iguanas live in the trees.

This hotel is off the beaten path which adds to the charm of this fantastic place...Staff is very helpful and took care of my every need:))). The rooms have ac and the rest has that Costa Rican charm...hot tub, pool, swinging private bed...and the jungle!!! I would recommend this place and would recommend a car to explore Santa Teresa😄

We were so lucky to find Canaima... We planned to stay there 3 nights and finally we changed our route plan and ended our holidays in Santa Teresa. We didn't want to leave....!!!! It was exactly what we were looking for. An oasis in the middle of the jungle. A place to relax, to enjoy the music, colors and light... More

Many thanks to Canaima Chill House and to it's personnel for our great vacations. The atmosphere of the place is really relaxing and stress-free. The staff is very helpfull and nice. We decided that the hill was like a fitness so it wasn't a disadvantage for us. The Santa Teresa's beach is so wonderful and the sunsets are amazing there.... More

Ok, this eco lodge is very nice, but first of all is extremely expensive for what they offer and the position in which they are. I have been in many others and this was quality-price the worst. Second of all, they don't have credit card, which is crazy for the money they ask, who goes around anymore with that much... More

My friends and I stayed at Canaima Chill House for only two nights, but it was the best experience we have had so far in Costa Rica. The hotel is comfortable, relaxing, and modern. The owner is also incredibly nice and welcoming. I definitely recommend this hotel to anyone who wants to get away from the hustle and bustle of... More

I had a perfect stay at Canaima. I chose to travel solo and can't imagine a better place to spend some alone-time than on a beautiful hill, surrounded by wildlife whilst hearing the waves meet the shore a couple hundred meters away. The staff was incredible. They are caring and warm and make you feel at home instantly.
