I stayed at Romantic cabin 1, it was just perfect very cosy and aligned with the spirit of the Hotel. You can hear the waves at night, see the lights of the sunset reflecting on the trees, rest in the hamoc and welcome any kind of visitors (squirrels, iguanas, birds, butterfly, crab). Just in front of the hotel, accross the... More

When we first arrived, we were greeted by the receptionist Mora with a smile and a joke. We felt at home straight away. I stayed with my children in the bungalow room, it was comfortable, private and clean. The views from the room and restaurant are amazing!!!! We loved our stay and would definitely return again ... It could not... More

This is a great place to eat, and a nice location very close to a beautiful beach on Santa Teresa. But, the rooms could use some updates. We stayed in the family suite and the doors between the rooms and the bathroom squeaked very loud when opened or closed. Also, a fresh coat of paint and a few other updates... More

We had a very nice stay at El Rey Patricio. It is in front of a beautiful beach with nice tidal pools and just a little further a long stretch of beautiful beach which is ideal for children. The rooms are good, although not all have air conditioning which is important when the weather is hot. The breakfast is fine... More

Vanessa and Ramon are very welcoming and authentic host! Excellent place to stay if you want quiet room, superior tapas at night and very good breakfast ! The beach is just across the road, you'll see it from your room and 5 min walk to the best of Playa Hermosa. No need to rent a car if staying for 3-4... More

We had a great stay at El Rey Patricio. We stayed in the Bungalow Familiar, it's a basic, comfortable bungalow right across the street from the ocean, you can lie in bed and listen to the surf. The hosts Ramon & Vanessa were great & quick to help us with anything we needed. I would recommend renting a car or... More

Rooms are simple but with all the necessary (including AC). Very peaceful, enough to cross the road and you are on the beach (often for your own or with few people). The restautant is to try even if you are staying somewhere else. The owner are super kind.

We stayed here for 3 nights and it's a great spot. The owners (Ramon and Vanessa) are nice people and they were super helpful with us as we had car issues (DO NOT rent with Mapache!). Our room was simple yet nice with the ocean just across the street. The location is outside of the main town so you will... More

Went for dinner and ordered several tapas for two people. Excellent food and good service. A little far from the center, but no problem by car. Don't know about the hotel, but the restaurant was nice.
