Whether you are traveling to Santa Teresa for the night or for a month, Don Jon's is the place to stay. It is located just across the street from the beach, with many different lodging options for a great price. Jon will make you feel right at home while you relax in the many hammocks, enjoy his amazing burritos and get to know all of the locals and adventurers. Make sure to ask him for one of his amazing cocktails! I'll definitely be back!

Often I look at the amenities listed for a hotel, and Don Jon's has the standard including location, wifi, housekeeping, secure rooms, outdoor showers for after the beach, and kitchens. They do not have things like iPod stereo systems, soaps, hair dryers, or the like. But, the most important amenity that Don Jon's does have is happiness. It shows in the people who visit, the food they serve (our fav is fish tacos w/plantains and coffee/banana smoothie), and the people who work there. I'll take those things over a hair dryer any day! And you can always buy soap at Super Ronny's a few doors down.

Don Jon's was the best place I stayed during my time in Costa Rica. Don Jon and staff were the most accommodating and friendliest. The food was amazing the beer ice cold! If your ever in Santa Teresa, Costa Rica stay at Don Joh's priced right for ant budget. Can't wait to go back.

Don Jon's deserves all these 5 star reviews. My girlfriend and I have stayed there twice and can't wait for our third visit. I first have to mention Don Jon and his amazing team. They are so friendly and helpful making it easy for guests to "relax to the max". Jon, Alejandro, and Carla make it feel like a home away from home that you never want to leave. They also serve excellent breakfast and lunch. The location is great. It's very close to the beach, market, restaurants, bakeries, surf shops, etc. I also really like the layout of Don Jon's. Restaurant, Lobby, and 2 dorm rooms up front with 2 types of private rooms in the back. Hammocks everywhere! We have stayed in both types of private rooms and were very happy with both. It's nice to have some privacy in the back and go up front when you want to hang out and meet some new people.

Because of a friends recommendation, I stayed here with a friend of mine and we absolutely loved it! Aside from all the awesome travelers that we met, the staff is super welcoming! Really great location that is close to some markets, restaurants, the beach, and surf shops. The breakfast burrito was so amazing that it became our daily breakfast during our stay. The room we stayed in was really clean and well stocked. Amazing hammocks all over the place and an adult treehouse to enjoy the rain and some company! Wish I had more time to relax to the max here, but I will definitely be back. If you have the pleasure of passing through Santa Teresa, this place is a must!
