2022 Travelers' Choice Best of the Best
Nantipa is located in the heart of Santa Teresa, a Costa Rican authentic beach town with its own unique culture and style. Many define Santa Teresa as the new home for Barefoot Luxury, combining World Class surfing conditions, great yoga studios and instructors, superb cuisine and great nature and parks, all in a relaxed atmosphere that depicts Costa Rica’s Pura Vida lifestyle. Nantipa is found 150 meters south of the main Plaza / School, in a property that spans from the main road to the beach, presenting 155 meters (approximately 450 feet) of beach line. The property is heavily forested and has direct access to two swimming spots – one with natural ocean pools that form in the low tide – and is within close walking distance to the best breaks and waves. Nantipa offers 19 guest bungalows scattered in a 2.3 hectare property with 155 meters of beachfront. Most rooms feature full or partial ocean views, along with garden and pool views. Manzu is the beachfront restaurant, featuring Costa Rican authentic cuisine and spectacular views of the beach, ocean and sunset.

My wife and I stayed at Hotel Nantipa for 5 days and were blown away by our experience. We stayed in a beachfront bungalow and instantly fell in love with the location, beach view, Manzu restaurant and overall hospitality / service provided by the staff. We are a very well traveled couple and Nantipa provided the best hospitality experience that we have had before. I would highly recommend staying there! We 100% plan on returning in the future.

I can’t rate Nantipa highly enough! The hotel is located on the beach, the grounds are absolutely beautiful. We watched the sunset everyday from the beachfront area. The rooms are great and well kept. The staff are attentive, organized and kind. They helped us book everything from domestic flights, surf lessons and a PCR test. Nantipa is the perfect destination if you want a relaxing beach vacation!!

Nantipa was amazing! The perfect hotel to compliment the style of Costa Rica, while giving you a lux experience. It was low season, so we sometimes felt like we were the only people around and always had the pool to ourselves! The room was amazing, we stayed in the Nanku Suite - super spacious and a view of the lush gardens. The food at Manzu was also great, and the staff the more than excellent - they knew our names every time we walked down and provided excellent service. Shout out to Estuardo for our mixology class and Luis who kindly served us every day. The beach is not the most swimmable, as this is a surf area, but the beach walks are amazing!

Either you are staying in a suite, a bungalow or one of their 3 bedroom villa, it's Pura Vida! The hotel is located on the beach and walkable to a variety of shops and restaurants. The amenities are superb as most rooms come with their own pool and the design is tastefully done.

Nantipa was amazing, the rooms were top of line and the view of the beach was unreal from my bungalow. The staff was so friendly and helpful with anything I needed. The location was great and easy to get in and out of in car or ATV. Will definitely stay here again next time I am in Santa Teresa.

I can’t say enough great things about this hotel and the people that work here. This was our second time coming here and this time was to get Married. Paula helped making our wedding planning as smooth and stress free as possible, and was transparent about every detail. Luis was a server and bartender there that was always working and super attentive and personable guy. We even grabbed drinks with him the staff after. And Ana Maria at the front desk was super friendly and helped a lot of my mainland family/friends feel welcome when they were totally out of their element. Thanks guys for the trip of a lifetime, be back soon.

We had a great experience here. So impressed with the cleanliness. We didn't love the town (young hipsters hang out there), but we thought Nantipa was great. It was so nice to watch the surfers from the loved beach. Loved the restaurant and coffee in our room. Plunge pool was a great addition. The only drawback was traffic noise when we were enjoying the patio. I don't think that can be helped. Will definately recommend this place to our friends.

Excellent hotel. Immaculate! Staff all very friendly and helpful. Organised a couple of brilliant surfing lessons at Vaqocosurf who could have been better! Good top drawer! Definitely worth having a go at the cocktails.

Our stay in Santa Teresa was incredible. From the pre-check in process to checkout, I was impressed by the hotel's attention to detail. One week prior to check in the hotel sends a list of services, activities and tours that you can book directly through them. They also organized all our transportation and dinner reservations. Once we arrived, I was in awe of how stunning the hotel is! Absolutely gorgeous. The restaurant has delicious food and an extensive menu. Breakfast was included in our rate which was awesome, huge servings and included everything we could want: eggs, toast, pancakes, coffee, juice, fruit etc. The spa was wonderful and we had the most fabulous massages| The concierge was super helpful and checked in during our stay! I can't say enough about how nice, welcoming and hospitable the entire staff is. Lastly, when we had to leave at 6am for a 7am flight, the hotel even packed us breakfast boxes for us to take with us since we were missing breakfast at the hotel! I've never had a hotel be so thoughtful. This hotel is the ONLY nice, upscale luxury hotel RIGHT on the beach. We had the plunge pool villa on the beach and it was game changing, the ultimate experience. I can't recommend Nantipa enough! We are already trying to plan our trip back. Santa Teresa is worth the journey and this hotel was worth every single penny. We loved it and plan to return :)
