This hotel is lovely! The owner Gemma is an absolute gem. She has decorated the place with various art and she takes very well care of the rooms and the facilities. Beautiful, spacious, super clean rooms. Perfect location, somewhat private away from the main street. Nice swimming pool and each room has a hammock. I highly recommend this place!

My weirdest and most unpleasant experience at a hotel ever. 10 seconds after arriving by car we (my boyfriend and I) got into a discussion with the owner and her daughter about where to park and whether the parking was included in the price or not. Literally after 20 seconds the daughter bursts out “You have bad energy. We’re fully... More

The hotel is run by a wonderful family who truly care about making your vacation special. The rooms are clean and efficient but the draw of this place is the relaxed feel you are whenstaying here. Great pool and really nice bar / restaurant. The mother /daughter running this place take care of all of your needs!

I stayed there in January and I really enjoyed it. The owners are extremely nice and are always willing to help you. Very good location and delicious breakfast. Wifi should be improved, but I´m sure it´s the typical issue in Santa Teresa.

Gemma and Daughter Tanya run this hotel. They are unbelievably friendly, and upbeat. They make you feel like family, and try extremely hard to make your stay worth while. Santa Teresa is a small rural town. You must bare this in mind when staying here. Things like water and septic may not be the standard you are accustom to anywhere... More

The hotel is in the center, close to a nice beach and yet quiet with a nice outdoor area with pool. The room was clean and comfortable although the bed was squeaky. Water (also hot for the shower) worked perfectly fine. The girls (mother and daughter) were very friendly and helpful. Breakfast was not included (booked over bookings) and costs... More
