I won't rehash much of what many others have said. Casa Zen is a small, relaxed, well-maintained beach hostel in a great location. The upstairs hammock/yoga space is great for relaxing, the beach is a stone's throw away, and there is a supermarket and two tasty restaurants within 100 feet. It can be a bit noisy (trucks and dogs at night/early morning) and breakfast is a bit basic (fruit and toast), but those are relatively minor issues. The apartment is great for a couple, especially for a longer stay. Yoga was great too and Jamie is a fantastic instructor for beginners or those who are more experienced. Great spot at a great beach.
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- Santa Teresa and Mal Pais are rather remote beach towns, and that is what makes them so special! Thankfully, even though we are a little off the beaten path, there are still quite a few services available to visitors. This is a excellent area to relax practicing of Yoga and Surf.On the first floor, we have six private rooms, ideal for single travelers, couples or pairs of friends. The rooms have either a double bed or two single beds. We also have two larger private rooms on the first floor, each with beds for three people. Scroll down for photos and prices for our private rooms. Upstairs you will find the apartment plus three additional rooms with varying capacities, featuring exterior doors as well as interior doors connecting to the apartment. An abundance of shared bathrooms are also located on the first floor (there are many to choose from and they are always clean!).We also have two well-equipped communal kitchens, including our signature chef’s kitchen, complete with a professional quality stove, microwave, blenders, and a giant stainless steel refrigerator. We offer a amazing Yoga deck with every day class.
