My husband and I stayed here for our honeymoon and had the best time!! Our host, Natalia, was amazing. She was there for all of our needs and questions. She gave us great local advice on what to do in the area and was a very fun person to talk to! She is very sweet and we we're sad to say goodbye to her at the end of our trip. The bed was comfortable, the TV and wifi worked great, although we hardly used it! The breakfast service was great, fresh food served straight to our room. There was room service and cleaning every day. The pool was relaxing and the landscape around the property was gorgeous. The locarion is perfect, it is on the edge of the busy part of town. It's close enough to join the night life but secluded enough to have a quite night in. Only a 2 minute walk to the best surf in town, we both surf and had no clue we booked the hotel closest to the best surf! What luck?! We recommend renting an ATV to adventure all over the Nicoya peninsula, we went to Hermosa beach, Mal Pais, Cabo Blanco Nature Preserve, Cabuya and Montezuma all on the ATV. We absolutely love Santa Teresa and can't wait to go back, we would absolutely stay at Manalá again.

This little gem surprised me! The most accommodating host Natalia and her amazing team made my stay the most pleasant during my trip! I stayed in the bungalow which is spacious, high ceilings and most important had a great cleaning daily service. WiFi worked great, nightly security on the entrance and a car par. Will definitely come back on my next visit to santa Teresa.

We stayed 2 nights in a room by the pool and the walls and ceiling are very thin so you can hear the neighbors. Wish they offered water in the rooms and shampoo/conditioner. The grounds are nice, pool could have been a bit cleaner, lots of leaves in it. Location is pretty good, there are a few restaurants nearby....I found that walking on the beach was better than walking on the dirt, dusty road to get to beach bars. There is a super cool Brazilian beach bar right on the beach that was awesome!

Still enjoying the bungalow we have rented for two weeks I can only praise the advantages of the place. Beautiful setting in a lush garden far from the dusty road and yet only 5 minutes walking distance to the most beautiful part of the beach. Good restaurants and a supermarket around the corner. Breakfast served on your own little terrace. Helpful owner and friendly staff. Only suggestion: coffeemaker in the room would be nice to have.
