Raratonga was a joy to stay at from beginning to end, beginning with our host Gianni, who was so friendly, helpful, and sweet. He was ready with a smile every single time we passed reception, and answered all of our questions with regards to board rentals, restaurants, sight-seeing, and lessons. In fact Gianni himself gave me my first surf lesson ever, and was always ready with a report as to the wave swells morning, noon, or night - whether he was working, or we happened to run into him at a local restaurant. Speaking of which - our location was perfect! A short walk to the beach, so many restaurants, surf shops, and grocery stores, but secluded from the dusty main Santa Teresa road, and surrounded by lush trees and flowers filled with birds, iguanas, and monkeys. The rooms (we stayed in the wooden apartments) were simple and beautiful, with really lovely mattresses and crisp white sheets and towels. We had a kitchen, which was so great for making a little breakfast ourselves before heading out for a very early morning surf, and our room looked out over the private swimming pool. There was also an outdoor shower beside the swimming pool which was very helpful after a day at the beach for getting all the sand off before heading inside. We will definitely be back Gianni! Thank you so much for be so awesome!!!
