We just returned from a week at the Funky Monkey and had a great time. The property is beautiful and nicely kept up by the owners Emelio and Gabi. Our bungalow was clean and perfect for the type of stay we were after. It has a very open feeling and the open ceiling in the bathroom is awesome for showers under the stars. The property is set back off the main road in Santa Teresa so walking to restaurants and stores is easy, but you are far enough off the road to feel like you are staying in the jungle. It is also just a short and scenic 10 minute walk to almost empty beaches with great surf.
The food here is great and Rafa will make sure you have hearty and great tasting meals. The bar and common area are a great place to hang out and make friends with the guests who tended to be a rich international mix of happy people.
I would suggest this place to anyone that is not after the room service and white robe type of vacation.
