Hotel Raratonga has the nature-y feel of a cabin in the jungle, but it's only a few minutes walk from the beach, grocery store, and many of the best restaurants in Santa Teresa. It was a wonderful place to relax, whether by the pool or on the balcony, and to work, as the WiFi was fast and reliable. Alessia was a fantastic host, accommodating last-minute changes in plans for both arrival and departure. They also provide an awesome app that has plenty of information about places to eat and things to do in town. Recommendations: If you're going to be working remotely, bring a cushion or fashion the towels into one, as the wooden chairs can be hard on the back after a few hours. There are roosters nearby so if you're a light sleeper and don't want to be woken up between 4-6 am, bring earplugs. Soda Tiquica, the restaurant a few doors down has the best Costa Rican food in town.

The management is incredibly friendly and helpful with restaurant information, planning trips and things to do, and making themselves available whenever I had questions. Would definitely stay here again.

Beautiful, neat and smartly designed shacks, with some rooms having a relaxing deck looking on a jungle view. Great Location in north Santa Teresa with a great choice of restaurants and amenities nearby, beach is 2 mins away. Alessia is a terrific host that made sure we had a good time, for instance, we forgot a mobile phone in the room that we though we lost, When she found it after we left, she gave it all she can to contact us by email, whatsapp and phone, to come back and get it before taking the ferry to Puntarenas. The booklet she provided us during our stay also had top-notch hints!

We had a good stay at Raratonga. The location is very good; the beach is just 75meter away and there is a very good soda next to Raratonga. Also we met some nice and friendly people in the hotel, especially the ones from Quebec, Canada ;) The staff is also very nice and willing to help in a friendly way. There is just one negative point; there is a rooster next to the hotel which starts to make noice as from 4 am. This is not good for your sleep ;). Hopefully the hotel can do something about it for the future guests.

This is a fantastic hotel, rooms are amazingly decorated, very clean. Hotel is a very quite complex of apartments with pool. Alessia and Stefano are superb hosts, their attentions to our needs was second to none. Having lived in the area for years, Alessia and Stefano are able to suggest places to visit, excursions and provide you with local tips. With their friendly attitude you can definitely experience the Pura Vida to the max!! We had a fantastic 5 nights stay and we highly recommend this hotel to anyone! thank you guys, hope to see you soon - back at Raratonga ! Alberto
