This hotel was a highlight of our trip. Our friends highly recommended staying here, as they visit often. Now, we will do the same. The common area is a beautiful open aired patio with lots of seating. Books line the wall, tour and restaurant suggestions line a wooden table and breakfast is served every morning from a variety of items....

I can totally recommend staying at Casa Cecilia. Such a wonderful place! Right at the beach, with Don as the manager who is super great and helpful to assist with anything! Great restaurants nearby. The beach right in front of the house feels super private. Beautiful waves to swim & surf in. Casa Cecilia is located in a more quiet...

What a trip of a lifetime!! My family (Blomdahl party of 6) landed in Liberia and drove down to Santa Teresa to spend 6 days at Casa Cecilia (aka paradise). The beach is so beautiful and so private and so peaceful. You feel like you are on an episode of survivor. Definitely the most relaxing place on earth. The surf...

Staying at casa cecilia is the best thing you can do in Santa Teresa. My boyfriend has stayed there many times previously and talks about it with such love that I was excited for my first visit there. It was everything he described and more.

What a wonderful place to stay! I stayed 2 nights at Casa Cecilia in mid-July 2016. The rooms are super clean and modern. There is a safe in the room to keep your valuables. This bed and breakfast is right on the beach (great for surfers)! There is a huge, comfortable covered area/patio to sit and relax and enjoy the...

My girlfriend and I feel very lucky we found this gem nestled in the quiet end of Santa Theresa - right on the coast. Amazing location for surfing just outside your door, and just down the way from more surfing at Hermosa beach. Don and Rodrigo made us feel right at home with their warm hospitality and great conversation. Our...

The very best holiday finds deserve a great review but there's part of you that hopes they'll remain a closely guarded secret... This is the case with Casa Cecelia. The little privately-run hotel is nestled at the quiet end of Santa Teresa beach. It has a wide veranda that opens directly onto the sand. A hammock and amazing surf is...

I came down to Santa Teresa with my boyfriend and a couple of friends, we all stayed at Casa Cecilia for a week.
