Even if all of Santa Teresa is a real paradise, this hotel is one special place! Don't be fooled by the access to this hotel, as the owner told us it can be reached only with a 4WD. You might no be just in front of the the beach but this beautiful place encrusted in the forest is just magical!... More

My wife and I stayed in 6 hotels while we were in Costa Rica, and as far as rooms go, this hotel wins hands down. Each room had a private patio/balcony area with a swinging daybed and patio table. The inside of the room was equally awesome, a loft area with two twin beds, an extremely comfortable queen mattress equipped... More

My husband and I absolutely loved everything about our stay Canaima Chill House. Not only was the location perfect (it sits up on the hill above the hustle and bustle of the main town, but close enough to get to the action in 5 minutes, or less if you have an ATV), but the staff was even better. Pablo, Juan,... More

We stayed two days in Santa Teresa. Canaima is located 400 m up the hill, but that is fine if you have a car. As it is a bit separated from the crowded, loud and dirty street it is the best place you can stay in Santa Teresa. Receptionist are very friendly and can give you excellent recommendations about the... More

We had an upstairs loft room which are huge. The outside space is lovely, beautiful pool and lush garden views. The service is great, warm and friendly. The area is great;... More

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.
