My husband and I came here thanks to a suggestion from a local bartender. We were staying at another hotel property, but when we discovered this place we had wished we had stayed here the entire time. We ended up coming to Ranchos Itauna several times throughout our stay in Santa Theresa. They have the best sunset viewing area, the... More

We visited Ranchos Itauna with my wife's aunt and friend. Peter is a great host, always making us feeling welcome. The place has a great location right at the beach. The property where the cabinas are located has a restaurant and a living space.

Very convenient happy hour cocktails between 4 and 7pm. The room was spacious and clean, a/c was available as well as a table outside etc ... However,... More

We stumbled across this bar last night looking for a good spot to watch the sunset. The layout of the bar is very chilled and directly on the beach. We took advantage of happy hour cocktails and enjoyed them while watching the beautiful Sunset. The staff were very friendly and helpful. The vibe was very chilled. Enjoy!!!

Very nice table by the beach framed by a fantastique sunset. Friendly service. We had drinks and wine plus typical Brasilian desserts that tasted pretty sweet but good. Cost 60K... More

That's the place you're looking for to escape from the city. Location simply perfect! Peter the owner is the perfect guest. The view is amazing and during the low tide natural pools appear right at the point. Not last, the beach bar is the best location in town to enjoy the sunset.

My family and I just returned from Ranchos Itauna. We had a marvelous time. The location was perfect, especially with it being on the beach. Our apartment was clean and comfortable.
