We stayed from the end of October till a little bit into November! It rained a little everyday but the spot was wonderful. Simon the owner really goes out of the way to make you feel at home. I recommend getting the surf lessons if you are a beginner surfer. They want you to learn and make sure you have...

First time trip to Santa Teresa and we love this beach! A short walk (200m) down a seemingly private trail reveals the beautiful white sand beach, a nice welcoming with Howler monkeys escorting us the way in grand fashion. The accommodations boasted some very effective curtains, we managed to sleep in 2 hours past normal.. and good thing too. This...

The place is a 30m walk away from Playa Santa Teresa which makes it a great place to stay for surfers. We stayed there in October which was a quiet period. Ideal for couples or friends who appreciate having the pool and garden for themselves. Restaurants, supermarkets and bars are only a short walk away and no car is needed.

I had a wonderful time in Santa Teresa together with Simone and loads of new friends! It's the best matching reality to a dream.. Pacifica Surf studios is sited with access through Santa's main road, close to a market and an amazing bar. It's far enough not to hear noises and parties from the more crowded area of the village...

We stayed for 2 weeks in June with our 11mth old son. The location is ideal as it is steps from the ocean, (especially nice on the early morning surf checks), it's off the main road so it is nice and quiet and it's close to the shops, restaurants and grocery stores, The studio rooms are large! Lots of floor...

If you're coming to Santa Teresa to surf, you've found the right place! Pacifica Surf Studios are on the beach side of the road, nestled in the trees away from the road, and just a few dozen steps to the sand on the south end of Playa Santa Teresa. The lineups at the south end of the beach are mellower...

We stayed at Pacifica Surf Studios a couple of weeks ago and thoroughly enjoyed it. The studios are in a perfect location for both beach and amenities and they are set around a lovely pool area, surrounded by trees. The studios are equipped with kitchens, hot water and A/C, they are cleaned daily and were a pleasure to stay in....

Our first trip to Pacific Surf Studios and won't be our last with a bit of luck! The studios are well styled, and give you a great place to relax after surf lessons - an activity that is both really rewarding and yet utterly frustrating at times. Availing yourself of an instructor makes all the difference We loved having a...
