“The best vibe in costa rica”
Reviewed January 15, 2010

After touring around a few cities in costa rica we were ready to unwind at Santa Theresa beach and find a budget hotel that would be comfortable, relaxed, close to the beach and surrounded by nature all in one, and we did at Don Jon's hotel/hostel. The two owners who are also brothers, Jon and Jason and their 6 family watch dogs live on the proerty and are always there to help with whatever you need. They had everyone laughing for hours and we miss them already. Beautiful, clean private wooden cabins on stilts or shared dorms closer to the street, prices are more than fair. 35-40 for the cabins that sleep 3 or under 20 for share. All rooms are very basic, there's nothing frilly about this place, it's just about nature and relaxing. We saw families with young children to younger people staying here and everyone had good things to say. Jon and Jason are great company, the beach and surfing are amazing, the hotel is perfect; I can't wait to go back!
