Recent Playa Santa Teresa reviews
Trust me, you want to stay here!
"I would not hesitate to recommend this house to anyone. My boyfriend and I spent one week here in February, we felt quite lucky to have such a large place to ourselves as it does sleep 8 very comfortably. Each room is its own contained unit making it great for 3-4 couples travelling together.
We chose to fly with Air Sansa from San Jose to Tambor where we met our taxi to Santa Teresa. This leg of trip in its self is an adventure. Our ATV's for the week were dropped off at the house upon our arrival and were picked up the day we left - our taxis, activities, dinner reservations & ATV's were all set up by the house manager who did a great job communicating with us and ensuring we were using the best companies. The sunsets and view alone from the pool were worth every penny. The road to the house is quite steep as mentioned and we were happy to have ATV's rather than a rental car.
- Tortuga island with Zumatours, we saw pilot whales, dolphins, blowfish and Macaws.
- The spa at Florblanca as well as the restaurant - we had lunch and dinner on the beach there *you can use there pool and beautiful beach area with bar service.
- ATV from house to Montezuma, don't miss the big Strangler Fir, monkeys or splashing through the rivers.
- Kojis has a nice dinner atmosphere and their sushi isn't too bad either, make a reservation.
***Lots of places are cash only and except US and Colones.
The rooms are simple and exactly what you need. Comfortable, clean queen beds. The caretakers are excellent and skim the pool each day as well as general tidy the house and garbages. Our laundry was even hanging out to dry when we got home most days. The kitchen, dining and living area is a great space too. Honey and Camilla are two canine frequent visitors, we loved having them stop by along with some horses, a bull frog, humming birds - lots of birds and lizards.
I'm sure anyone would love their time at this property. It's private yet close to everything you need."

"My friend and I had a great stay in the Plaza Royal apartment. The place was clean and perfect for your stay of a couple of days or long term. The apartment is located above a cafe (we went each morning!), surf shop, massage/spa, and is located about a minute walk from the beach! There are multiple bars and restaurants, and a market nearby for all your food and sundry needs. We woke up to howler monkey's one morning! Being that Santa Teresa is a smaller town the main mode of transport is ATV or motorcycle, so being right on the main road it did get a little loud in the mornings with people heading to work/surf, but that was easy for us to look past with the level of service the owner provided and the amenities in close proximity. I would definitely stay here again on any return trip to the area. Nice, modern, convenient... and the owner/her son were excellent hosts!"

"What a tropical paradise! Beautiful home that is surrounded by beauty & nature. Loved the monkeys in the surrounding trees as well as the fruit on the property that we used to mix "beverages"! The pool is relaxing & we grilled on the deck for dinner as well. The people we met both neighbors & in the towns of Santa Teresa & Montezuma were extremely nice & helpful. There is a lot to see & do or just enjoy a beautiful day/sunset on the water as well. Thank you to Rachel & Daniel for all that you did. We will definitely be back"

"We have visited Batik 4 times. Our most recent trip was to Casa Mali. Gorgeous accomadtions, your own private pool, short walk through the mango trees to the beach, what could be more perfect!
Casa Mali offers enough service to make your stay enjoyable and worry free but also the privacy to make you feel as though you are in your own home.
We can't wait to go again!"
