Highly recommended! We had an cute upper floor flat and it felt like staying in a tree house (still comfy though :)), also nice and personal service! Good location in Santa Teresa even if U don't stay ON the actual beach, it's still close though.

We had one night at Griss, which was more than enough. The place was crawling with cockroaches. In the bathroom we killed 3 in a very short period of time. Room in it self was fine, and the bed had a nice firm madress. We didn't go to the pool, but it seemed good and the children playing in it... More

Beautiful boutique hotel very close to the beach in Santa Teresa. The accommodations are very nice and you can get a real feel for the Italian style of the owners. The best thing about it though is the hospitality and friendliness of the staff and owners. We had been traveling for a long time and here we really felt at... More

Great location in the best part of Santa Teresa. Stylish, secure, safe and clean. Beautiful and attention to detail. The pictures is not nearly as good as the place. The staff is just lovely and the atmosphere is great. High level of hospitality, helpful and friendly! This is the place you should stay at.

We stayed here as part of Lucero surf retreat. Here in low season so were pleasantly surprised to be upgraded to house instead of room. Highly recommend as not a lot of restaurants open during low season so was nice to be able to prepare some meals. Ricardo and his family were exceptionally friendly and hospitable. Made us feel like... More

We stayed at Griss hotel for 5 nights and loved it! We had an apartment in the ground floor, well equipped and beautifully furnished and decorated. The large windows bring a lot of light and fresh air. It was quiet and could hear howler monkeys as well as the ocean! The hotel has a great pool and terrace. It is... More

I've spent 7 nights in one of these lovely apartments located just by the see. The place is perfect, because it's absolutely the closest to the most beautiful spots for bathing, walking and most of all surfing (all of the other hotels, more close to the village Malpais are in fact more distant from the Playa Santa Teresa). The houses... More

Stayed here a few days with the family. Really helpful staff and nice rooms. Close to the beach and far enough from the main road to not be too noisy at night. We stayed four people in one of the main floors of the lodges. AC was super quiet and effective!

The owners of this villa are super nice and helpful. The pool and the grounds are beautiful, and it's centrally located in Santa Teresa. Just a 3 minute walk to the beach. You are in the rainforest, so there are strange noises, bugs, smells. The rooms are nice and clean, but bugs did come out at night. The a/c in... More
