4/10 Fair

Not recommended
The hotel is not as advertised. It is not beachfront as the misleading photos show. There was no Internet and the TV did not work ( noblesse obliges, we got a discount for this, but we had to work online and we couldn’t). The cabins have a very nice layout and a beautiful patio with tables and chairs but everything is old, worn out and dirty. I would not return. There are much better places for the same money.

If you want a taste of life in Playa Santa Teresa, this is a great spot. In the middle of everything but tucked away in its own bit of jungle.

6/10 Good

Location was perfect super short walk to Teresa beach. Pool at the cabinas was just a wadding pool. Had three items go missing, back of green, my girlfriends swim suit bottom, and a Garmin Vivo Active watch. Total loss = $350. Otherwise the place was nice, cleaning staff could have done a better job making the rooms, but the veranda and kitchenette were very nice to relax and make dinner in the evenings. If they had a night security guard like all the other places I would highly recommend, still recommend but lock your door even if just going to the pool.

Local living by the beach
Right by the beach, the beachfront restaurant and walking distance to the grocery store and banks. We were looking for a place that was original and felt like Santa Teresa and this was it. Pia and Amanda were very helpful; helped us to organize surf lessons, atv rental, directions to Playa Hermosa and Montezuma as well as a helping us book a flight to San Jose as well as a car rental to go to Tamarindo! You could tell that they just wanted you to have a good time and would support you to make that happen even when they weren't directly benefiting..... that's true help! It was a completely relaxed and cool vibe!
