“Excellent place, excellent food, excellent owners! :-)”
Reviewed March 12, 2014

The title says it all :-) We had amazing time staying with Vanessa and Ramon. They are very friendly, helpful and fun people to be around. They put their hearts and souls into this place. We had small but very cozy romantic room with ocean view and hammock. Vanessa and Ramond were very kind to us. They took us to the beach with them, showed us how to surf, invited us to joint them and their spanish friends to go to the concert in the bar at Santa Teresa. It felt like visiting old friends. And their spanish cousine is delicious! If you are unlucky and the rooms are fully booked you have to come here for the food at least! We were on our honeymoon in Costa Rica for 2 weeks, traveled around a bit and then chose this place due to the best reviews - and it was the best choice :-) Unfortunately we originally booked only for 2 nights because we wanted to explore other places in Costa Rica but we extended straight away for an extra night. After 3 nights they were fully booked :-( but Vanessa and Ramon called for us to several places and helped us to find another accommodation in Santa Teresa so we could stay close and come back to their restaurant for the delitious mussels and chololate volcano cake.
Ramon you are a star, we really miss your food! :-) And Vanessa you make people to feel very welcome :-) You both make a great team.
Thank you for making our stay at your place so wonderful. We will definitely stay in touch with both of you.
Lots of love Ilona & Martin, Czech Republic
