We had a great experience at Hotel Raratonga! It met our needs in a clean, safe, and comfortable place to stay with a price that was reasonable. The location is near quality restaurants, cafes (Ginger Cafe), the beach and the supermarket was a 2 minute walk down the street. Our time spent at Hotel Raratonga will provide us with many great memories of Costa Rica and Santa Teresa. Lastly, as mentioned in many other reviews, Alessia is great and always there for you. She responded to all my questions in a timely manner while planning our trip and continued to offer her assistance when needed throughout our stay at her hotel. I can't wait to go back!!!!

Enjoyed our time at Hotel Raratonga, firstly because Alessia is so available to help with any needs. The couple of maintenance issues we had were immediately addressed, the accomodations were cute and clean and we would definitely consider Hotel Raratonga on a return trip.

Searching for a balanced Costa Rica location one that provides seclusion yet offers nearby amenities is difficult. Writing this review is difficult bc I dare not want to spoil such a wonderful place. You can find no better than this wonder hotel nestled into a jungle-like atmosphere you feel instantly at home here. Clean, safe, spoilingly friendly between a hotel/hostel/private home there truly is not a better option than Hotel Raratonga. Santa Teresa is a wonderful place and will hopefully preserve what makes it so special. Your time researching should end here as mine did, you will fall in love with this hotel, the staff, the others that stay there. This is pura vida. Respect, preserve, and forever enjoy.

We stayed in both the hotel and the apartment locations and both were clean, safe and quiet. The owner speaks English and is super helpful. We had a couple of minor crises and she went out of her way to make phone calls and contacts for us.

We've travelled to Costa Rica a few times already and Hotel Raratonga is definitely the best place I can imagine. Very friendly stuff, beautiful rooms, very clean, quiet, close to the beach, close to supermarket and excellent restaurants in the midst of a stunning environment.
Go there, you'll love it!

Room Tip: Appartements are beautiful!
