Just had the most amazing stay at latitude 10. Fantastic service and the location based right on the beach is awesome. The bedroom looked out onto the beach, and it was so quite and tranquil. Very relaxing.
Jose,Maricella and the team make Latitude 10 feel like a home from home. Breakfast is lovely (fresh fruit, and beutifully cooked local delights), and we had a very romantic evening meal cooked by a chef who creates a fresh menue every day.
We can not rave enough about this place, and we leave feeling very happy.

We recently visited in July and cannot wait to return to our friends and the beautiful, tranquil environment that truly defines Latitude 10. Words cannot describe the overwhelming feeling of calm and comfort that comes from being a guest here. My husband and I are the type of people that stay away from big resorts that feel impersonal and sway more towards retreats that feel like home and have a genuine spirit that speaks to the culture of the country we are visiting. Latitude 10 takes care of their guests like family and breathes pura vida. We were able to get a real glimpse into Costa Rican culture through our conversations with the staff who were so open with their lives it was difficult not to make friendships (we still keep in touch!) from our experience.
Latitude 10 has a romantic & rustic elegance to it and the property is so well kept and clean. Listening to the ocean, watching sunrise & sunset from the beachfront, witnessing the most beautiful lightening displays from the clubhouse & lounge, receiving an oceanfront massage, surfing (with complimentary use of their boards!), i could go on ...
The resort is serene at all times of the day, but especially dream-like after sunset when the property is fully lit with candles that transport you to a calmness impossible elsewhere. The turndown service is also unlike anything we have ever seen ... do yourself a favor and experience it for yourself!
Additionally, the breakfast, lunch and dinner experienced here was the BEST we had during our entire stay in Costa Rica. We looked forward to every meal and every drink because we knew it would not disappoint! Everything at Latitude 10 was taken care of for us ... i cried when we left. It was the best vacation we've had to date thanks to the welcoming and accomodating people at Latitude 10 as well as the natural beauty that surrounded us. We will be back! Thank you Lat 10!

We had 9 adults and 2 kids at Latitude 10 for our wedding. From the minute we stepped off of the Sansa Air flight, things could not have gone more perfectly. Maricella, Cindy, and Juan run that place like a finely tuned engine. The chef, Yvette, makes absolutely delicious meals. You simply feel right at home, yet are waited on hand and foot by there awesome staff.

Anything you need taken care of on your trip, including meals, reservations, activities, transportation, etc, is all taken care of by the staff. You simply pay one bill at the end. I will also add that there are no hidden costs and the charges are all very reasonable. They are very accomodating to your needs, and our wedding went off without a hitch.

I am hesitant to write a review because I don't want anyone else to know about this place! But, you should go. You won't regret it.

Great beach location, private, and extremely perfect for a romantic getaway. The private villas added to the experience that you were one with nature. The sounds of the waves crashing at night helped make sleep as relaxing as it can be. Every attention was paid smallest details.

My wife and I were looking for an exclusive getaway for our honeymoon, and after consulting with a Danish travel-agency specialized in Costa Rica, we settled on Latitude 10. Man, was that the right choice!
After a 6 hour journey from San José cross the Gulf of Nicoya and by car through the jungle, we were greeted by a very friendly member of the staff, who showed us to our cabin and offered us each a complimentary ginger-smoothie. We explored our cabin and the surrounding jungle (yes, they are IN the jungle!), and settled back in our comfy wooden chairs on our porch with our smoothies. We were in a completely different world, and the constant, dwelling sound of the waves crept up through the jungle and made us feel in heaven.
We were there in the Green Season. We thought it to be merely a marketing-word for the rainy season, and indeed it rained a lot (though mostly in the afternoon and at night), but Costa Rica was just so incredibly green and lush everywhere, and both in rainy weather, and when it was sunny and blue sky (we had that every day as well) exploring the area was wonderful. On top of that, the area was almost completely tourist-free. We walked the incredible beaches, and for as far as our eyes could see, we were completely alone. Really amazing. This also meant that on all the tours we were on (canopy, horseback-riding, wildlife-guide, snorkeling), we were alone with the guides. Should we return, we would without a doubt choose the green season once again.

We can only repeat what others have already said:
The food was absolutely great, from the (included) breakfast with freshly pressed orange juice, to the delicious lunch selection, to the wonderful dinners prepared by the in-house chef. While dinner prices were a tad higher than the restaurants in the surrounding area, they were definitely worth the money, since it was a 3-course meal with fresh, organic ingredients and the highest degree of service.
In general, the service was really top-notch. When one of our prepaid trips were cancelled due to bad weather, the staff was fast and efficient in finding a replacement tour. And when my wife got injured on a coral reef by snorkeling, Juan (the manager) and his lovely wife expressed sincere concern, and were very helpful - they even called a doctor just to see if our medication was the right one.
The premises were very intimate, and since our cabin was surrounded by jungle (small stone steps lead to the main house), we had complete privacy - if not for the leguanas and howler monkeys in the trees above! :-)

All in all: We had our dream-honeymoon come true, and we will recommend the resort in a heartbeat. But as they say themselves, it is not for everyone, since you're practically in the jungle, and you have to bring an umbrella if you have to use the toilet at night in the rain. That just made it even more magic in our opinion. We sincerely hope we will return one day.

Cayuga S, Manager at Latitude 10 Exclusive Beach Resort, responded to this reviewResponded November 12, 2012

Dear Kristine and Daniel,

Thank you for taking the time to write this wonderful review of your honeymoon at Latitude 10 in Santa Teresa. We are thrilled to hear that you had a dream honeymoon and all of your expectations were fulfilled or exceeded. Your analysis of the green season is really “right on” and we hope that a lot of other guests will take this advice from you and visit us between May and November.

Thanks for all the praise on our management team, the service, food and experience in general. This is a great motivation for all of us. Thanks for your great advice on the topic of “Latitude 10 is not for everybody”. You are totally right and we are happy that you pointed this out. If you are looking for a cookie cutter, air-conditioned, standard hotel or honeymoon experience, this is not for you. But if you are looking for a once in a lifetime natural lodging experience in the jungle right next to the Pacific Ocean, our resort is your dream come true. Oh, and by the way, for future guests, the only time you will need an umbrella to go to the bathroom if it rains with strong winds. There is a roof over the toilet and sink area, but yes, the rest of the bathroom and shower area are open air in the jungle with monkeys watching you while you shower. Not for everybody. But it was a dream honeymoon for you. We hope to have you back with us in Costa Rica for an anniversary soon.

Saludos
