Recent Playa Santa Teresa reviews

  • Amazing Villa in Santa Teresa

    "We recently stayed at Milla la Maria early April as part of a 10 day trip to celebrate our 10 yr anniversary. We can't say enough nice things about the property, the owner Roberto and the house keeper Melania. All made our trip fantastic. First, the property is absolutely beautiful! There were only 4 of us that stayed and it was very cozy and would have been just as cozy with twice as many people. The beach is a beautiful short walk from the house. The outdoor space was my favorite. Enjoying a cup of coffee in the morning while watching the wide array of birds, lizards and the occasional howler monkey was a great way to start the day. Roberto met us at the house to give us the tour and some suggestions regarding Santa Teresa and helped us to arrange for ATV rentals for the week. He even called to check in on our during the week and prior to our departing. Melania must keep Milla la Maria the cleanest house in Santa Teresa. Although we spoke very little Spanish, we had very little difficulty communicating with her and she has quite an infectious laugh. We would all highly recommend this particular property to anyone wishing to visit Santa Teresa. Can't wait to go back!"

  • Our Own Personal Paradise

    "This review is WAY overdue (sorry Stephan)! Let me start of by saying that all communications with Stephan before our travels were great! The Owner, Stephan, was easy to reach and quick to answers our questions. The reservation process was also simple and easy. We rented Casa Iguana for 12 nights. The home and property was very well kept. The house itself was the perfect size for myself, husband and our 10 year old. Everything was there that we required or needed- even a blender to make smoothies with the fresh bananas and star fruit we picked! The grocery store was a 5 minute walk out the front gate- super convenient. The walk to the beach was also a five minute walk. This walk took you to the side gate (with security lock) that opened to the public access walkway to the beach. It was perfect for my husband who wanted to run up and check the surf several times a day! The wi-fi was actually TOO GOOD! We had fully expected to drop off the grid for two weeks! But, there it was, great wi-fi and the ability to make our Facebook friends jealous of the paradise we had found. Marta, the property concierge, was friendly, funny and helpful when we had questions or needed to find someone to take us fishing. The cleaning clue did a great job on their every other day visits. And maintenance replied promptly to the minor issue we had. We are hoping to return to the property...maybe bring friends and rent Casa Ying Yang! Thanks again Stephan, Marta and Hector!"

  • 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) 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."

  • 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!!!"
