I absolutely adore Griss Lodge and Villas! My boyfriend and I stayed here for 4 nights and received far more than we paid for! I highly suggest using Griss Lodge as your escape while on vacation. The grounds are beautiful and well cared for, the rooms are EXACTLY as advertised and very nicely decorated, and the staff is so amazing--they...

We actually started calling RIcky 'The Fixer' because no matter what we needed, he found a way to help up. If we are fortunate enough to visit Santa Teresa again we will absolutely be...

This is a wonderful place , very clean, secure and unique. I walked across the street and surfed everyday, then walked to get a nice meal. Everyone here was very nice, very helpful and quiet. I will be returning in the future.

This is the place to stay in Santa Tresa. Ricky and his family make your stay perfect. My girlfriend and I stayed for a week in one of the houses and it was the best part of Costa Rica. Ricky has boards for rent and luckily for us Ricky even gave us lessons. It was my girlfriends first time surfing...

Griss is a must stay while in sta teresa. It is right across the street from an expansive and uninterrupted beach and walking distance to great restaurants. The rooms are comfortable, clean and spacious. The hotel staff are friendly, making you feel like you are at home. Griss is not a place to miss!

I had a great experience at Griss Lodge! I spent 18 days solo at Griss and I loved it. Selma, Gabri, Simona and Ricci were warm and hospitable. They were always eager to help with anything I needed. I stayed in house 1. It was very much an open-air villa. There is A/C in the bedroom, but one should know...

Griss Lodge is just far enough away from the busy town area to make it quaint and quiet. Close to the beautiful beach and some great restaurants. Selma and Gabriel were gracious hosts, and our room was much more than we imagined.
