I've had the pleasure of staying at the Chill House on two different trips to Santa Teresa and I had a wonderful time on both occasions. The first time I stayed here my boyfriend and I lucked in majorly and were the only guests for two nights. Having that pool and the entire place all to ourselves was absolutely magical.... More

A recent vacation with my wife and son led us to Canaima Chill House. A trip we will not soon forget. From the perfect waves nearby to the lazy rainy afternoons in the pool and hot tub. This was exactly what we were looking for. The staff was very friendly and being that there are only eight rooms it feels... More

We love this place! We can highly recomment it! It's tucked away in the mountain within walking distance to the beach- but far enough away from the dusty, noisy mainroad. The ambience is relaxed and luxurious. We had 2 spacious rooms incl. kitchen and an own big, private porch. We enjoyed a suit and a standard room. I would recomment... More

This hotel is perfect for a beach/surf town vacation. The common area is amazing it includes a pool, hot tub, dry tub, lounge chairs, a bungalow with a swinging bed and a comfy chair.

My boyfriend and I spent the coldest week in Canada away in beautiful Santa Teresa at the Chill House. We had a lovely experience - Juan and Pablo were incredibly helpful as they assisted in booking several off-site excursions and ensuring we had a comfortable stay. The Chill house was a beautiful & clean spot. We used the kitchen often... More
