Recent Playa Santa Teresa reviews


    "If you are looking for the most heavenly getaway look no further than Santa Teresa Costa Rica. This gem of a town has it all. GREAT food, GREAT weather, GREAT ppl.. If you love to surf this is the place as well. We stayed at this really great bungalow and it was perfect. Located perfectly in the middle of the town it is a 7 minute walk to anywhere you really care to go to. It is also RIGHT on the BEST part of the entire strip of beach. This was my second time there in 2 years... the first was with a buddy and the second my honeymoon! The room is simple and clean. If you are looking for the Four Seasons this town is not for you. It is a surf town where you CHILL and just live it up. The food is ridiculous. Great people run this pad. They will take GREAT care of you.... Cant say enough good shit about this place."

  • Perfect 10!

    "We had an incredible vacation our stay at Surf Vista was what made the vacation. The location, the views, the villas, Andy and Crystal were just amazing. I would highly recommend Surf Vista Villas to anyone wanting to stay in Santa Teresa. We rented ATVs for the week and loved it. We were able to get around the coast so easily and Andy and Crystal were so informative and helpful. This place is perfect."

  • This was our first proper vacation in two years and every bit worth the wait.

    "We are frequent travelers to the Central America and the Caribbean, but this was our first time in Costa Rica. This is a beautiful country, with beautiful people -- inside and out. In short, nothing could be more befitting a place than The White House of Costa Rica. The pictures and descriptions of The White House simply don't do it justice. There is a certain air about this beautiful home that transcends images and words. There is no way not to relax – to put the craziness of the "real world" behind you as you open the giant, hardwood door and cross the threshold into this post-modern masterpiece. Upon our arrival, we were greeted with open arms by Tanîa, who went above and beyond our expectations by assuring the refrigerator, pantry and water cooler were stocked exactly to our request. Her presence during our visit would prove invaluable as she happily arranged for excursions, taxis and the general needs of our party of eight throughout our visit. She and the rest of the staff made us feel at home and are reason enough for a return visit – sooner than later. The house is elegant yet livable, comfortable, and nicely appointed and we loved the artwork. Need a break from the heat? The air conditioning works perfectly. For most of us, the swimming pool and evenings on the beach watching the sunset was the perfect foil to the Costa Rican sun. I understand there is a television in the "TV Room," but I can't imagine wasting a moment of the amazing surf, sandy, trees, wildlife, swimming pool and sunsets to turn it on. Want to get out of the house for a bit? There are plenty of fun shops, restaurants and watering holes to fit any budget or taste. Most of the locals we met spoke very good English, and those who didn't were patient with our broken Spanish. To round things off, portions are plentiful and everything is reasonably priced – particularly for a tourist economy. One exception for us was the restaurant next door. Pranamar's decor and ambiance is second to none. You should experience breakfast, lunch or dinner overlooking the reflecting pool at least once. This place is tranquil and romantic, but for our taste, the service and food quality is lacking for the price point. Our stay lasted one week, but the experience will last a lifetime. If you’re planning a visit to Costa Rica, you should stay at The White House. The country is hot, the house is as cool as it gets, and the people will have you missing this place the moment you leave."

  • Amazing house, perfect location, great for large families or two families

    "We are just back from a week long stay at Casa Escondida and we are already planning on staying there next year. The house is amazing, clean and spacious. The location is perfect, a quick walk to the beach, restaurants and a grocery store, yet it is completely private. The layout is open and spacious and the pool makes the house ideal. We are a family of five (with two teenagers) and had ample space. Next year we plan to return with another family of five. Kristain went above and beyond helping us with surf lessons, atv rentals, a fishing trip and a canopy tour. An amazing place and a perfect house."
