Evelyn and Roberto (the managers at this hotel) have created a jewel of a place to experience Santa Teresa. From the comfortable bungalows in the rainforest, to the open air restaurant with fresh, delicious food and an outstanding view of the ocean, to the spa and yoga offerings... this place will help make your trip!
