Everyone who works at the Funky Monkey is so friendly, welcoming and helpful. When the company that was hosting our vacation kept dropping the ball, many of the Funky Monkey staff members stepped up and went above and beyond, and helped make our vacation so memorable after all! The food was delicious, and it's a convenient location to get to...

I stayed at the Funky Monkey for 6 nights while visiting Santa Teresa. The purpose of my trip was to relax, practice yoga, and hang by the beach. I'm so glad I stayed there! The lodge is great with a pool, kitchen, yoga, restaurant and bar. The staff is very friendly and hospitable, they really want to take care of...

I love the Funky Monkey Lodge. This is the second Aerial Circus/Yoga Retreat that I've ran here and both have been brilliant. Gabi - own of the place - is awesome to deal with. She is quick to respond to all emails and inquiries, is there on site whenever you need her and runs a 'tight ship'. The accommodations are...

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!

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....

We arrived at Funky Monkey planning on staying 3 nights but at the end we stayed 12 nights.. The lodge is well equipped with a bar/restaurant, pool and a kitchen. 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...
