“one of a kind!!!!!!!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 7, 2013

Our friend strongly recommended Nautilus to us and he was right on the spot!!
This place is simply amazing, Adi and Gal (the owners) will go out of their way to make you feel like home, the food, the facility , the staff ,the location and basically everything was perfect.
Couldn't ask for better vacation, they made our whole experience much more unique!
Will definitely go back again and again...

Simply put; I fell in love with this little town called santa-Teresa. The Nautilus rooms, restaurants, location, atmosphere and especially the people make this place one of my favorite destinations. Charming, friendly, inviting...

I had such a wonderful time at Nautilus and hope to return very soon!! The owners, Arik and Adi are such warm and welcoming people, and they really made me feel at home. At the same time they were super professional and booked surf lessons, massages, kayaking, and transportation for me, so I didn't have to worry about anything.

The villa was very comfortable and spacious, (bigger than my NYC pod!), had a great bed and sufficiently equipped kitchen, and was cleaned daily. The pool was refreshing both in early mornings and late nights, and the grounds are lush and well kept. The yoga classes (twice a day at $10) taught by Karen and Sandra were a bliss.

Every morning I enjoyed the amazing and healthy smoothies from the on-site restaurant Olam, and their super yummy raspberry/apple and chocolate muffins made me beg for the recipe!

Santa Teresa itself is a friendly little surfer town with a great vibe, and there are plenty of activities to choose from. I visited at the beginning of the rainy season, and we had some refreshing and much welcomed showers a few nights.

Overall, my two-week stay at Nautilus was wonderful,and I definitely recommend the hotel to others!

We didn't stay at the hotel, but the food at the cafe was so amazing. The smoothies were big enough to have as a meal, and the food was superb. Plus, the owner was there and he was very friendly, just like the staff. Next visit to Sta Teresa we will definitely stay there!

Words cannot describe our incredible experience at Nautilus! Arik and Adi were the most gracious hosts and made us feel like family...they are truly the salt of the earth! As soon as we arrived, we knew we picked the best place and felt right at home! We were warmly welcomed with a delicious smoothie, and they were more than accommodating when we arrived several hours before check-in.

We were extremely pleased with our room--it was so beautiful, modern and immaculate! The hotel grounds were stunning...Nautilus is paradise! The pool was wonderful, and we were usually the only ones in it. So relaxing and peaceful. Also, we loved having a room right next to the AMAZING hotel restaurant Olam (see separate review).

What sets the hotel apart the most are the owners behind it. We fell in love with Arik, Adi and their passion for this place! Their service is truly unbeatable, and we just loved being around them. Not only did they recommend the best activities and restaurants Santa Teresa has to offer, they didn't hesitate to book reservations for us. We never had to worry about a thing...I know our trip wouldn't have been the same if we had stayed somewhere else.

To say we highly recommend Nautilus would be an understatement! We've told just about anyone who will listen that they should book a trip here as soon as possible. This trip to Santa Teresa was the most amazing vacation we've ever been on, in large part thanks to Arik and Adi! We came as guests and left as friends. We can't say enough about them and their beautiful hotel...we are already planning our next trip back!

Everything about this place is amazing !!! Eddy & Gal were the best hosts we could imagine. They organized our transfer from Tambor airport straight to the door & were very welcoming when we arrived. Nothing was out of the question they organising our surfing school, fishing charter,daily taxis, restaurant bookings, dirt bike hire everything you could imagine to take the stress out of your holiday. We originally booked for 7 nights but felt so looked after we booked in for longer. !!! The food each morning,coffee & service was just the best!! Its the best place in Santa Teresa & all the staff there are brilliant!
Highly recommended.
Loved it !
Thanks

My wife Tina and I spent a very refreshing 9 days at Hotel Nautilus. Eddie And his wife Gayle were very accomodating. They made us feel like family. Later, we met his brother Eric and his wife with their new baby. The rooms are large. There was a full kitchen with pots, pans, & everything you need to make your own meals. Also, a fullsize refridgerator. It is just a 5 minute walk to the beach, and what a beautiful beach it is. We aren't surfers, but I could see why they flock to Santa Teresa. Big enough waves to get a workout. Also, on the hotels site is a fantastic natural foods restaurant called Olam. The best smoothies, breakfast, & lunch entrees. Above the restaurant is their yoga retreat. Once again, if you wish to have a relaxing or stimulating stay I would recomend Nautilus.
