We came just at the end of the wet season and the weather was amazing. We got the lovely fortune of being able to book our 8-day stay at the off-peak season price of $305 per night which is DRASTICALLY less expensive than peak season at $620 per night and it still felt like an expensive vacation. Pros: Neat, clean...

Dear Friends So glad you liked our villas and found the spa and grounds wonderful! Thank you for all the nice comments. On the other hand, I'm a little surprised you thought that you couldnt walk much. I walk four hours a day on the beach, I'm training for the El Camino de Santiago de Compostela and if you start...

Villa was perfect, two steps from the pool, comfortable and relaxing. Food was uniformly excellent (except one lunch pizza). Breakfasts excellent, lunches great, Dinners just perfect, and the bar was our favorite. Staff always had time to chat. Stayed ten days, could have been much longer. Staff was first class. Everything we asked for was "no problem".

Pranamar is an absolutely stunning place to stay in Santa Teresa. Me and my husband stayed there for 2 nights and we loved it. Our villa was incredible, very beautiful and confortable, right next to the pool, which is perfect! The location is amazing, the place is 100% calm, the only sounds we've heard was the waves and the birds!...

Dear Friends Another wonderful Trip Advisor report....wow...thanks so much. I'm sorry you were not happy with breakfast, and I must say, this confuses me! I am one of the few hotels that still includes it with the price of the villa and I refuse to put out a "usual and customary" token buffet. So many of our guests Love our...

I stayed at the Pranamar villas for a yoga retreat this August (2013). It was love at first sight upon arrival. The setting is beyond anything I could have ever imagined, a beautiful lush jungle setting tucks the villas and bungalows in a peaceful location. The ocean waves are heard from anywhere in the resort. I stayed in the Kula...

This hotel is just the perfect place. The architectural design of the rooms is awesome and the outdoors showers are incredible. The pools are super comfortable and very near to the rooms, which is great. And if this is not enough, the restaurants has one of the best food in Costa Rica, everything we ordered was served perfectly.
