I recently stayed at Punta Teonoste for two nights with my son. We had a fabulous time and couldn't ask for nicer personnel who catered to our every want/need. Victor was very pleasant to deal with on every level. Our cabana was very clean and I loved the outdoor bathroom! We had one of the front 2 story cabanas with... More

We got to this hotel and immediately noticed the lovely open dining room and charming thatched rooves on the eco friendly hotel buidings. The Ocean was in sight. So why were there no other guests? It seemed strange. I asked the manager who said it was off season.Everything was vague here. There was no air conditioning, no T,V no hot... More

I live in Playa Guasacate .We went to Teonoste for drinks and food for the first time because I wanted to see where some of my local friends work(Eglys and Johnny) Too many drinks later and without a light on my motorcycle, we decided to stay for dinner and the night. There was only one other couple in the whole... More

There are many things to say about this hotel: 1. Great location just on the beach with 2 private beaches, ideal for beginners and professional surfing. We drove around a lot visiting different hotels and comparing them and beach side location is rear. Most of hotels are on the hill, charging additional $ for surf rental and transfer to the... More

I thought the hotel was beautiful and in an amazing location. Our main concern was the rooms were extremely hot and full of bugs. It made for very uncomfortable sleeping. We were also fairly sure there were bed bugs in two of the 4 rooms our group rented. This problem is really unfortunate because all other aspects of the resort... More

This place is spectacularly beautiful, set on a stunning beach with a beautiful lodge and pool. There is nothing else in either direction as far as the eye can see, and the sunsets are unbeatable. As other reviewers have stated, the staff was extremely kind and courteous. Our time spent with the exceedingly friendly Julio (who happily helped my teenager... More

I spent 5 nights in this wonderful hotel. The beach, huts, shower, nature and staff were just amazing. The moment I stepped on the grounds, I was just in awe of the view from the lobby.
