Recent Playa Santa Teresa reviews

  • 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."

  • Paradise in Beach Haven

    "Maison Marazul is situated in paradise on a beautiful piece of coastline, walking distance to both Flor Blanca and Pranamar Villas. So without getting in your car you can enjoy the finest food (at Pranamar), yoga at both, and excellent beaches. Mario, the manager, made all the arrangements so easy--he has the patience of a saint, and delivers exceptional advice and service with competence, efficiency and professionalism. In addition to making all our housing arrangements at the house, he reserved accommodations and transport for our party of 6 in San Jose and up North. We love Mario! And Tania provided excellent concierge services, including arrangements for paddle-boarding and massages. Now back to the house--it could not be more beautiful and comfortable. Five days was not long enough to try out all the different outdoor seating areas. We watched the monkeys playing in the trees from the comfort of our lounge chairs--a National Geographic experience in the front yard! We enjoyed the beach sunsets, the sounds of the birds and cicadas, the iguanas , the hammocks, the pool and even the bats. The beds and house could not be more comfortable, serviced daily by a housekeeper and grounds person. For food we would highly recommend The Bakery in Santa Theresa (try the coffee and crumbled cheese cake), Mary's Restaurant in Mal Pais, Pranamar's restaurant. When we go back to Costa Rica, we will certainly arrange our trip with Mario."

  • Just as superb, if not better, in the off-season

    "This is the place where I step-off the grid of big-city life and a stressful job. Santa Teresa. The White House is the perfect retreat to take a group of friends or family. Ladies on a trip can get their daily yoga in right next door at Pranamar or "sip in the sunset" poolside. Gents on a trip, can surf at one of the world's best beaches, a quick walk away at Hermosa. Take a fishing boat out for the day in nearby Mal Pais. Come back to the house and cook it up - the dining table seats 8-10. Not to mention, being an event planner by trade I have noted, the house is uniquely set-up perfectly to host a small to mid-size wedding or special event. The way the kitchen is designed, the entry, the view and the back lawn facing the ocean, suitable to bring in tables and seat away. Use the Master suite for the bride/groom + family and the two villas for the wedding party. If you need catering, there are many wonderful chefs in town. Ask Mario, the house manager for my specific recommendations. Then hire me as your event producer - as I will fly down from the states. I know all the locals and speak the language. ~your bon vivant."

  • 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. We'd recommend: - 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."
