Having become disenchanted/disgusted by what Tamarimdo has become over the years, my wife and I finally sought out a new vacation spot in CR this year. Needed upper-tier place to stay on the beach in proximity to good restaurants, beginner-level surf, and maybe some nightlife. After reading Lonely Planet and deciding upon Mal Pais, i went to the Trip Asvisor reviews of hotels in Mal Pais and Santa Teresa (btw, these are basically connected as one beach town). I ended up booking at Moana Lodge, and stayed there for the first few nights of the 11-day trip. No complaints with the place, but wasn't on the beach. I had planned to look for a more ideal place once there anyway. After visiting many hotels on the beach in the area, we chose Pranamar. The whole place and staff were excellent. When i searched on Trip Advisor, i never went past the first page of listed hotels; therefore, i never even saw pranamar. What more can i say-- i looked at a lot of places in the area, including all of top-ranked-- and pranamar was the best.
