Definitely spend at least one sunset here during your stay in this area. The minimum drink purchase if you're not a hotel guest deal is annoying but really not that bad--pretty reasonable, actually.

Just read my text about the hotel..... I won't return! The service is not acceptable...... You order and hours later you get your order, if you are lucky. I ordered a mojito virgin and got some water on ice and two leafs of peppermint........

This place has an awesome infinity pool with a great swim up bar. I'd suggest going around the time the sun sets to take in the views. Probably the best spot to watch the sun set in Santa Teresa.
