I know it was high season but the rooms were way too expensive for what they were in the end. It is a really cool location, close to beach and yet in the middle of the jungle but it looks like they are not taking care of it anymore. On the other side chef nico was worth the stay.

Dear Bianca Thank you very much for your review. You and your friend stayed with us during our PEAK SEASON - which is the absolutely most busy time of year and there are no discounts, even if there are only 2 people for a room of up to 7. Remember it was a last minute and there was no other...

Me and a friend of mine stayed at Funky Monkey Lodge for 5 days. We found the prices way too expensive for the quality and service of the rooms. On the other side, Nico the chef was amazing! Very good food!

The food is very good, the smoothies are so tasty and the staff cool and friendly! Good vibes in the tropical forest! The bungalow was clean and...

I absolutely loved my stay at Funky Monkey and I wish it was longer than 7 nights. Everyone that works/volunteers there is so kind. I loved the yoga on site and felt challenged by the classes - the teachers were amazing!! I stayed in a shared dorm with three other people which worked out nicely. The bed was comfortable -...

I had the pleasure of staying at the Funky Monkey over the New Years holiday 2017. I can't say that I have ever stayed at a hotel with more personality. Everyone on the staff went out of their way to make you feel at home, relax, and live Pura Vida. In addition to the staff, most memorable was the restaurant....

The staff speaks English and Spanish and is friendly. The whole lodge area (incl. common area) is really spacious which makes it relaxing. It's located 100m uphill from the main...

A few yard off the main road, close enough to the beach (walking distance), but far enough from the noisy main road,This is a Gem in the heart of Santa Teresa, very well run by its Argentine owner and his Chech´s wife, coupled with great manager Nacho and chef/barman Joaquin. They will make you feel like home. The property has...

The hotel was great, just ´5 from the beach. We stayed on a really nice and clean bungalow. The bar has sushi night and classic but great cocktails. The pool was amazing; and if this is not enough, an excellent yoga studio, which i used almost everyday. The good vibe of the people who works there was a great part...

From the first day to the last of my ten day visit I felt welcomed and cared for by the Funky Monkey Staff. Very clean and tidy, great food and drinks, and a perfect atmosphere to get away to an upscale lodge/hotel for a great price!

“If you want cheaper the shared rooms are great and a good way to meet other traveler. If you want it to be quite try to book the rooms furthest away from the restaurant even thought they shut down at 10pm I believe so it's not too bad.”
