Recent Playa Santa Teresa reviews

  • The most AWESOME spot in Santa Teresa

    "If you're looking for a laid back, convenient location for a Costa Rican getaway, Casa Buena Vida is the place for you.....I rented the compound for three weeks in February....the property is steps to the beach as well as the best beach bar in all of Santa Teresa....and it is located at the midpoint of the Mal Pais/Playa Carmen/Santa Teresa Beaches.....there are many fantastic restaurants all within walking distance and the super market is a block away....although the property is just off the main road, once inside the gate you feel like you're in your own was very hot in February so having your own pool is a must.....and the pool at Casa Buena Vida was great for a plunge and big enough for the main house, the bedrooms were very comfortable with great beds and well air conditioned and street noise was not an issue.....and the kitchen and living space was well appointed.....the staff as well as manager Brett went out of their way to be helpful and with an over night security guard at the front gate we felt very safe.....I can't say enough good things about Casa Buena Vida ......I have traveled all over Costa Rica and by far this is my favorite spot....."

  • Beautiful property and exceptional hospitality

    "What an incredible month. Everything about our stay at Villa Pochote exceeded our expectations. The Villa itself has been built beautifully (by Trey himself) - clean, spacious, bright with outstanding views from both floors. Great swimming pool, barbecue area and a lovely yoga studio free to use at your leisure with a great teacher who comes every Wednesday at sunset and teaches a class. If you want wildlife you're in the right place too - Iguanas, Howler monkeys, Whiteface monkeys, red squirrels, Coatis, an abundance of birds, the garden is teeming with life and when you sit an wait, it all comes to you. You can walk the the closest beach (Playa Manzanillo) in around 10 minutes but to get anywhere else you'll need a 4x4 or a quad/buggy as the roads are tough work otherwise. And you will definitely want to go everywhere else. So get one. The next beach along is Hermosa where I spent most of my time, great for surfing, beautiful sand, and with a guy who sells coconuts and delicious ceviche out of the back of his van for when you get hungry or thirsty. From there you're on the road to Santa Teresa, a bustling little surf town packed full to the brim with good vibes. There are a number of great bars and restaurants, plenty of surf stores and a few small supermarkets to pick up supplies. All along Santa Teresa are more pristine beaches, usually busy with local and travelling surfers. Further out from Santa Teresa you'll find plenty of nature reserves, other little towns and an abundance of staggering waterfalls (some easier to find than others). The best bit, however, is Trey and Jaclyn. Their hospitality knows no bounds. They gave us lifts to town, surf lessons, the best advice on where to go, they lent me snorkelling gear, Trey flexed his superlative BBQ skills when we all had a cookout, they booked us taxis, Jaclyn took me to the rodeo in Cobano, Trey even took time out of his day taking me around properties that were for sale when I expressed interest. The list very much goes on. Overall we count ourselves lucky to have found such a breathtaking place. If the rest of Costa Rica is as wonderful as the tiny slice we saw then what a country it is. As an unexpected bonus we have also made great friends along the way. We will surely be back. Pura Vida"

  • An experience of a lifetime!!

    "I stayed at the property Casa Yin Yang with my family and we brought a friend long wanting to visit Costa Rica for a surf trip and it was absolutely beautiful! The house was unbelieveable, more than we expected. It was so private and right on the beautiful beach.A true Costa Rican home with all the upgrades. The outdoor living space was the best and we spent most of our time outside. The pool was great, the rooms were large and the craftsmanship of the home was just beautiful, the pics didn't do the home justice. Marta (the concierge) was there for our every need.The boys only surfed a bit because the week we went there was a pretty big swell but we did alot of other things such a renting quads to visit all around town and anywhere else we could go (and did) ,ziplining, hiking, and sight seeing. We had a blast and I don't think there is a better place to stay than this property. There are very few in this location that we found that are even in this league and HIGHLY recommend it. Thanks Stefan, Marta, our cleaning girls and the rest of the great staff that watched out for us! There is great security here and they do keep an eye out for you."

  • Awesome place, perfect location.

    "We traveled to Costa Rica in Late April and stayed 4 nights at this place in Santa Teresa. We were 3 couples (6 people total) and it worked out perfect for each couple to have their own bedroom. It was very hot and very dry on the Nicoya Peninsula with it being the end of dry season, I would love to come back when the area is much more lush and verdant. With that said, it was a godsend to have a pool and A/C units in the bedroom. The units cool down the rooms very quickly, therefore we could turn them on as needed and conserve energy. We were able to drive up the hill easily in the Daihatsu Terios, these cars have 4WD but we didn't even need to turn it on to get up the hill. You definitely don't need to rent ATVs for the week unless if you don't have a rental car and don't feel like walking up the hill/ The location is perfect because you are away from the noise and dust of the main street without being far away from the best beach and restaurants. We ate one evening at Brisas Del Mar just down the hill, this restaurant is phenomenal albeit a bit pricy. Habaneros was a great place to go for a sunset dinner and tasty margaritas. We did breakfast at The Bakery one of the days and the other 3 days cooked breakfast at the house. Be careful when reaching for the dishes, as we did find a scorpion tucked behind a cutting board. My biggest critiques of the house are the lack of real cabinets in the kitchen to keep the dishes clean and scorpions out and that the second bathroom is not air conditioned or even well ventilated. We did a 24 hour surf board rental which was a blast and another day rented ATVs and did a big loop around the peninsula, visiting Montezuma and much more. I don't know that I will be returning to Costa Rica anytime soon, but if I did, I would definitely stay at this property again."
