Batik is one of the most serene, beautiful places to stay on Playa Hermosa near busy Santa Teresa! Every detail of the property is cared for and maintained. The casita was well stocked, very comfortable with good screens on the windows and doors. The property is very quiet with a relaxing space to lie in the hammock in the shade. We attended a wonderful yoga class taught by Nancy on the beautiful shaded yoga deck. The staff was exceptional. We love to cook and were able to use the wood burning grill in the evening. The beach is a 5 minute walk. You do need a car to get into the main part of town.
A spontaneous decision to travel to Costa Rica, looking for a balance between serenity and adventure, Batik Costa Rica delivered a million times over! On a family trip, we enjoyed the beach, surf, and sun - while visiting the local town and others surrounding the area, which had much to offer in adventure and food! The Batik grounds are spectacular - a zen oasis to relax and enjoy life!
I stayed in Casita Kala with my girlfriend while other friends rented other villas in Batık. We had great time, the service was very accurate everymorning the cleaning was accurate, towel changed daily our dirty laundry was given back cleaned and folded on the same day (drier than the things we kept on the cupboard!!) The bed was very comfortable, the kitchen was furbished with all we needed. We cannot find a flaw in anything other than we didn't have an espresso machine but this is just because we had to go all the way to Santa Teresa on a terrible road full of holes to drink it. Enrico
Overall a 10/10 review of this beautiful place to stay. You are very secluded with a private beach as well as a manager that cares. Your provided with everything you need here and I couldn’t ask for a better person than Antonio, the villa manager, to help and take care of anything you need. Overall if your looking for a beautiful location with a top of the line staff, this is the place for you. I would highly recommend staying here because of the staff and the willingness to help out the guests with anything they need, not to mention the beautiful views and how easy it is to get anywhere.
Absolutely beautiful, safe, and near an amazing beach. Go with other people (we were two couples) and pay a little extra. It's worth every penny! The high-quality villas with pools are the best. Plan on doing some shopping and make meals in your villa. It's a great way to relax and enjoy the beauty of Costa Rica (but, beware the roads down south are rough).
