“Heaven on Earth”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 10, 2010

We stayed here for 2 weeks, and absolutely loved it. Very comfortable, spacious, and clean rooms. 2 steps from a gorgeous beach with amazing surf, and the absolute best hospitality we had in Costa Rica. Very highly recommended !

Staying at Orquidea felt like staying at the home of an old friend. Barbara and Itay were incredible hosts. They went out of their way to make us feel comfortable and welcome. The room was nice, clean and faced a beautiful garden and pool. The lodge is within walking distance to the beach and many good restaurants. On my last day in Santa Teresa, I found out that the tour company would not be able to take me to Arenal Volcano, as I had planned. Barbara made some phone calls, went on the internet, and navigated the confusing Costa Rican bus schedules so that I would be able go on the next leg of my trip. I wouldn't have been able to do this on m own. Not only did she make sure that I had everything I needed while at her lodge, she made sure that I had a great time in Costa Rica! I highly recommend Orquidea. This is where I'll be staying the next time I'm in Santa Teresa.

we are coming to Santa Teresa twice a year for few years now and without a doubt orquidea lodge is one of the safest and cleanest places out there, its a walking distance from the best surf point s and yet very quite, the management is great and the price is very reasonable. Can’t ask for more, highly recommended!

The place was nice and clean and very comfortable, it was a skip away from the beautiful beaches and other activities. We rented ATV's just next door and cruised around town. It is a great place for surfers and families!

The people and place are amazing. Its in an amazing location and well worth the price. Perfect spot to chill out for a month and surf. Everything is really clean and brand new and the people who own the place are really cool. They totally go out of their way to make sure you have everything you need. Love it!

For those traveling to Santa Teresa, there are many housing options. I have done much research in my quest to find the ideal place to stay during my vacation there. My research paid off big dividends when I made the decision to stay at Orquidea Lodge. Located in the center of Santa, this magical lodge was amazing to say the least. The rooms are brand new and the pool area is just amazing. The Lodge is owned by a charming family that treats all guests as though they are just that – Family. The lady of the house is a young energetic lady that took care of everything for us from booking Yoga classes, massages, and surfing lesson. She also got us the best rates on the continuation of our travels in Costa Rica. I highly recommend this place!!!

as a surfer the location was perfect, a short walk to a great santa teresa beach break, the room is big and comfortable and very clean, the pool was great, we hang out with the rest of the hotel guests and got to meet new people. Barbara and Itay the owners of this lovely hotel were magnificent, worm and friendly, Itay is a great surfer and gave us the local scoops about where and when to surf. Barbara knows everything about the area and was very helpful to us daily, she recommended the best restaurants, shopping, yoga and massages. I cannot wait to go back again.
