Recent Playa Santa Teresa reviews

  • Peaceful paradise

    "My husband and I stayed in Casita Kala (next to Casa Kala) for just over a week. We were pleasantly surprised that the casita lived up to the pictures we saw on-line. Inside, the bed was super comfortable, and it was nice to have the kitchen to prepare our own meals. The bathroom is outdoors so we had to get used to visits from local land crabs (part of the experience:). It rained quite a bit while we were there (start of the rainy season) but there is a beautiful covered outdoor patio with a table and hammock so that was a real bonus. The grounds of Batik Costa Rica are very well kept and secure. There is a security guard at the front over night and cars are parked inside the gate. We felt very safe here. The walk to the beach is quite short, and playa hermosa is a quieter and cleaner version of Playa Carmen (previously Playa Santa Teresa)...it is a sandy beach (no stones) and lots of waves. The rip tide can be quite strong so those with young children would want to be extra cautious. We rented an SUV this trip which is a must have if you stay here and want to be able to do day trips and your own grocery shopping. Super Ronny 2 is where we did most of our shopping. Recommended restaurants Habanero for solid Mexican food, El Pulpo for take out pizza, and if you are willing to drive to Montezuma, Playa des los Artistas was great with the view of the ocean. The manager Dahlia was great and super accommodating to us during our stay. The cleaning staff did a fantastic job cleaning our room everyday and making it smell nice. We would absolutely go back, it is a great place to spend time if you really just want to relax and get away from it all."

  • Perfect location

    "This is a perfect location in Santa Theresa. Our family of 7 comfortably stayed at this home. We had ample room, plus we loved the pool, the open architectural plan, the convenient location, attention to security and of course one of the best surfing spots in Santa Theresa. The owners were readily available and helped with suggestions for things to do locally."

  • Our Idea of Heaven

    "My husband, son, his fiancé, and I enjoyed a beautiful week at Casa Infinity. The privacy and indoor/outdoor feeling of the property were just what we were looking for. I think the website photos accurately depict the home, but they do not show the feeling one gets as you actually stand or sit and absorb the surroundings. The structure of the building is something to admire and we so appreciated all the covered spaces. This home is IN the jungle, so we were visited by many harmless and interesting creatures. It is quite the drive up the steep hill, but once inside the gated property we felt save under Mike's watchful eye. Hanit made sure that all our needs were taken care of, sweet Joanna came daily to clean, and we had wonderful massages from Miguel and Johanna. We took advantage of the kitchen for breakfast and lunch. Check out the store that sells organic goods and pick up some of the delicious fresh ginger and papaya yogurt. There are tons of fabulous restaurants in the area. I think Papaya Lounge was my favorite. There is a new Italian take out called Pronto that makes killer lasagna and the French pastry shop next door is filled with tempting delights, so we ate in a couple of nights, enjoying their yummy food and the tranquility of Casa Infinity. Days were spent lounging around the amazing pool, surfing, body surfing, or taking walks on the beautiful beach. Yes, this is our idea of heaven. We loved our stay and Casa Infinity. We will return."

  • best beach house on the property!

    "First of all, the property is at a great location close to everything you need. We did our surf lessons and board rentals through our friends at Adenalina, walking distance a block just outside the compound (above the closest Super Ronny market to the right when you walk out to the street). Banana Beach bar is right next door on the beach, where we watched sunsets over delicious pina coldadas (food there is great too). The 'hotel' pool was nice. Lovely front yard with iguanas and squirrels that were so fun to watch from the patio. The beach view is amazing. Can't say enough good things about the property owners! They hooked us up with the best massages we've ever had. Our massages were by Natalia who came to do them at the house. Don't miss out on that. The house itself was very clean & comfortable. Would definitely stay here again! Perfect for 2 couples or a family. I looked at a lot of rentals and this is by far the best deal for a house on the beach with everything you need, close proximity to the action, and private / secluded for ultimate relaxation. Loved it!!!"

Playa Santa Teresa Travel Tips

Santa Teresa Beach Rentals in Puntarenas Province

Puntarenas Province, Costa Rica is in the Central Pacific region of the country on Nicoya Peninsula. A small but quickly growing village is Santa Teresa, where tourists have flocked since the 1990s. Santa Teresa resorts will place you in the busiest fishing village of the region, where surfing is a must. Let your tropical vacations in Costa Rica become a reality with a stay in Santa Teresa Beach rentals.

Santa Teresa Resorts Yield Gold and Grey Sand

Santa Teresa resorts stretch along five kilometers of road, with gold-grey beaches to welcome you. The road conditions are not the greatest and you will need a car to reach Santa Teresa Beach rentals. However, once in the tourist village there are Internet cafes, shops, and bars for nightlife which are easily reached on foot. Vacations in Costa Rica do include public transportation though the range is limited to surrounding areas like Mal Pais, Montezuma, and Cobano in the Puntarenas Province.

Vacations in Costa Rica at New Eldorado

Surfers from all over the world take vacations in Costa Rica, specifically Santa Teresa due to the waves and sand. Surfers of the past have returned home to rave about the well-kept beaches, letting the secret of a new “Eldorado” out. The beaches around Santa Teresa resorts are lined with forest trees, closing you off from the busy town. Surf instructors are available to teach beginners the needed techniques to catch a wave.

Riding the Waves to Santa Teresa Beach Rentals

Wave-riding is not the only attraction Santa Teresa Beach rentals can offer. The forests house many wildlife species and birds. Taking a canopy tour or hike through the forests gives you a different perspective on Puntarenas Province. If walking is not your favorite activity, consider sampling the local flavors by trying the different dishes restaurants have to offer. You could also purchase your own spices and herbs from local markets to put your rental kitchen to good use.
