My husband and I stayed with Nautilus over the New Year and absolutely fell in love.... The accommodations could not have been better! Best location in Santa Teresa! Loved the amazing food... Perfect for a wellness retreat! Sad we didn't get to experience the new yoga deck that wasn't complete when we were there.... And the lovely owners coordinated yoga for us elsewhere. Along with dinner recomendations and surf lessons!!! We will be back!!! We heart Nautilus and all that it embodies!!!

Nautilus was the perfect choice for a week long vacation with my sister. The hotel was a quick walk to the beach but also has a beautiful pool area for relaxing. The location was great in Santa Theresa, the restaurant on site was excellent (had breakfast here everyday) there are many great restaurants within walking distance as well. Yoga classes are offered daily, I participated in 3 classes with two different instructors which I would highly recommend. Adi (one of the owners) is one of the nicest people I’ve ever met! Always making sure we were comfortable and that we were having a good stay, she made reservations for us for horseback riding, renting an ATV to drive to Montezuma and the Cabo Blanco Nature Preserve and wrote out directions so we wouldn’t get lost along the way! She was also great with restaurant suggestions in the area.

Would definitely recommend Nautilus and hope to visit again sometime!

My wife and I spent 4 days here on our honeymoon, and we couldn't have asked for a better experience. From the time that we arrived, Adi and Arik treated us like family and went out of their way to make our stay as comfortable and enjoyable as possible. Whether it was just mentioning an interest in a surf lesson or ATV rental, they volunteered suggestions and set up appointments to assist in our relaxing, stress free vacation. They made the trip exponentially better. My wife was not feeling good on our last day, and the level of concern from Adi and Arik were beyond comforting. Adi checked in on her several times, offering coconut water and advice for a quick turnaround. My wife noted that during a routine housekeeping trip, a staff member brought her a blanket, unsolicited, when seeing she was huddled on the couch in fetal position.
The amenties were fantastic as well. The pool was pristine on every trip and the on-premise restaurant was superb. There wasn't a dish that we didn't rave about. The open air yoga studio above the restaurant provided the ideal forum for a tranquil session that sits seemingly on a mountainside.
When we return to Santa Teresa, one thing that know for sure is that we will return to the Nautilus to try and duplicate this previous stay (besides my wife's sickness).

Fondly,

Patrick & Laura

We stayed at the Nautilus the first week of May 2012. We read the reviews and, believe me, this place lives up to it's excellent reputation. Small intimate hotel with spacious and airy rooms, clean, well equipped kitchen and a nice porch to enjoy that morning cup of coffee, fresh smoothie prepared in their restaurant, or bottle of wine. Loved the swimming pool, so refreshing after a day at the beach or exploring the area with an ATV. The cafe serves really good fresh, healthy food and smoothies (not open after 4:00PM). The hotel is a short walk from town with several very good restaurants, as well as a beautiful beach. Had a wonderful massage arranged by Adi. The owners are the nicest people and so accommodating. This was the last destination on our trip to Costa Rica and were looking for R&R, after hiking the rain forests, zip lining, and traveling within the country. It was the pefect ending to our 2 week trip to Costa Rica and we loved this area, it's beaches, and people. This area is a surfing haven for a very young crowd. We, on the other hand, are a couple 64 and 70 years old. It was great fun to "do nothing", enjoy the big waves, the surfers, and explore stunning, isolated beaches with our ATV rental (arranged by Adi).

Hotel Nautilus was beautiful. Adi and Arik are so relaxed and the atmosphere at the Nautilus was the same. From the time we arrived to the time we left, Adi was always around for advice and assistance. The accomodation was perfect and the pool was very relaxing. Olam (the cafe) has amazing food. Olam was closed on Saturday, so we were forced to eat out. If Costa Rica wasn't so far away from Australia, we would make this trip often. We had a great time there and will remember it fondly. Highly recommended.

The Hotel Nautilus is simply paradise run by the nicest couple, Adi & Arik. While it is a bit of an adventure to get there (a ~6-hour drive from Liberia), you are really getting away from crowded, touristy parts of Costa Rica. From the howler monkeys in the trees behind the hotel to the goat next door to the mangoes growing outside your window, this is a tropical piece of heaven. Do not miss the delicious, organic, vegetarian meals in the lovely open-air restaurant. The fruit and vegetable smoothies are sublime! Arik was so helpful in arranging surfing lessons, ziplining and horseback riding trips, ATV rentals, dinner reservations and more. The healthy food turned our teenaged daughter into a vegetarian; she is working very hard to earn a trip next spring back to Hotel Nautilus with a friend. Santa Teresa is so safe that we feel comfortable sending them back to stay with Adi & Arik. A magnificent place to visit...wish we lived there.

Room Tip: Only seven apartment-type rooms in the entire complex--you can't go wrong.
