Andy and Cota were excellent hosts with great tips and advice whenever we needed it. The view and location was absolutely stunning and serene – including the hammocks! Highly recommended and cannot wait to come back again during our next visit to Costa Rica.
We booked Surf villa vistas in the fall and we were supposed to be in the middle villas but there was a problem with the system. We ended up in the Nicoya for 10 days it was fabulous even for the bottom floor, you have your own inside kitchen and a shared outdoor space also fabulous views of the sunset. The next week we moved up to the Roca Mar suite. (more…)
Nous avons adoré ce lieu ! La vue et les couches de soleil sont magnifiques ! Le lieu est très reposant et les proprio sont supers et présents pour vous conseiller ! On a pris un super cours de surf et un super cours de yoga sur leurs conseils ! Je consille ce lieu avec un moyen de locomotion de préférence car la montée est raide
Demasiado bien! Los dueños super amables, muy pura vida, las vistas no se pueden describir de lo hermosas que son, tiene un super en la misma calle y es un lugar muy tranquilo y silencioso.
The view is stunning… it’s peaceful and green and Mora who is the careraker now is so sweet and helpful. We stayed three nights and enjoyed those days big time. The kids loved the pool and all the apartments have a stunning sea view (we ended up seeing whales and dolphins!). (more…)
SJ Costa Rica Mora (the manager) is a super-friendly guy. He is also very helpful person. The place has incredible views and a nice atmosphere. The room was fully equipped and the surrounding forest was beautiful, with lots of birds that visited our deck. Overall a very impressive place.
We stayed in the rooftop penthouse for two weeks. This trip was our third trip, and we are already booked for next year! We literally have found our slice of Heaven. You get great views no matter where you stay, and even by the pool. The views from the penthouse, though, are unbeatable. It is up a hill that has a decent grade, but very similar to any place in Santa Teresa (the road in Santa Teresa is a dirt road that is very dusty in the dry season). (more…)
My hubby Peter and I stayed at the Surf Vista villas in early February. We stayed in the Sunset Reef suite for a couple nights until we could stay in the birdcage apartment for the remaining four days. (more…)
