Recent Playa Santa Teresa reviews

  • Absolutely Wonderful

    "This property is fantastic. We had such a great time. The view is unbeatable and the pool is amazing. The unit is very clean, thanks to the excellent caretakers. We spent a lot of money on water, I would try to pay a little extra next time to have the water jug refilled regularly - after the first one is used you are responsible for refills and we couldn't get it up the hill on quads so ended up buying many smaller jugs. The Wi-Fi will last a couple days, longer if you don't use it too much. I really have no complaints. About the area - The ferry ride from Puntarenas to Paquera is very fun! Best part of the journey there. I would suggest taking a taxi after the ferry right to Santa Teresa. We rented quads to get up the hill because it is VERY steep. Luckily our first taxi was able to make it but after that you definitely need an atv. They are also great for getting around to see the sights - must have. We went fishing with Jose at Sport Fishing Tours in Mal Pais - I would definitely recommend, we caught 5 mahi mahi our first morning out. For an amazing meal I would suggest the restaurant at Hotel Buenos Aires, they will even cook up your Mahi Mahi that you caught. Absolutely fantastic. Would recommended this property and area to everyone!"

  • Location, Setting, and House: The Recipe for a Great Getaway

    "This was our third trip back to Santa Teresa; a fun town with great surfing and fishing. The house is on the northern edge of town. Quiet yet very convenient to the grocery store and restaurants. The grounds are well cared for. The path down to the beach is magical. (About a 90 second walk to the beach, but a magical 90 seconds!). The house has a great combination of private communal space for a family vacation. The housekeeper was helpful and delightful. Thanks for the great getaway."

  • Paradise

    "Casa Java is everything all these reviews note and more - it was time for my husband & I to get away from the rat race and to arrive at Casa Java was an instant unwind - it is amazing. Though then we started to have some fun with (trying) to learn to Surf (Mick was fantastic), out Fishing to catch our dinner, horse rising, montezuma water fall, hiking, and of course the international cuisine in the many restuarants of Santa Teresa - incredible. We are on our way back home and miss it already. Thanks so much Carlota for your amazing place and thanks Lauren also for looking after us so well. Fingers crossed for our return."

  • 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."
