Great hotel in a very relaxed town....
Beautiful hotel in Santa Theresa, Costa Rica near the beach. It was located at the end of the town, quieter but still very close to the bars, restaurants, and all the action. Very clean and well maintained hotel. It was a bit of a hike up the path to get to the second floor hotel part, all stairs and no elevator. There was separate, individual units along the way to hotel that were very nice and easy to get to. I had no problems and the staff were very helpful and friendly. I will most definitely stay here again. Santa Theresa was a wonderful, lay back, friendly, easy going, no worries kinda a town. The trip to get there from Montezuma was amazing and the road was quite an adventure (hilly and parts were a dirt with lots of bumps), but that added to the fun for me. You can rent awesome ATV's or a bike to get around, but I preferred walking most places, especially on the beach, you could walk for miles. Gorgeous sunsets you don't want to miss.

Large Comfy Villas
Make sure you print out your online booking. The girl at the desk had no record despite email correspondence. The villa we stayed in had a full kitchen, large bed, air conditioning, porch and hammock. The beach is across the street and down a short path. There is a surf shop across the street for convenient rental.. $10/day. My only complaints were the ants in the room (excusable seeing as how it is the jungle) and the pounding of the all night disco across the street. This didn't seem to bother my girlfriend but I lost some sleep. Otherwise, I would highly recommend Escencia. It was our nicest stay in Costa Rica!! Also, there are monkeys around! We spotted one in the palm above our villa. You will hear the howlers in the morning and see them in the trees from the pool area.
