So often times, when searching for a place to stay on vacation, in particularly when visiting a country or region that you are completely unfamiliar with, photos of hotels or condos can be somewhat misleading, and when you arrive, it looks nothing like the photos you saw on the website (and not in a good way). In the case of...

Brilliant simple but well thought through rooms, with lovely terrace overlooking lovely garden and view to die for. Loved the setup here, perfect for low key family hangout. Owner lent us boogie boards which kids loved, and privacy is also good. Only minor complaint is aircon fan units for upstairs are downstairs near bedrooms so can be noisy. Downstairs rooms...

This was our second time staying at Surf Vista Villas and as other reviewers have said this place is truly spectacular. Both times we stayed in the penthouse suite and the views are breathtaking! Every morning we woke up to the beautiful sound of animals, and I would go out on the deck with my binoculars and watch all the...

What can we say about this glorious, secluded getaway? We opted for the rooftop suite, and all week long, felt like we were in our own private Treehouse Paradise. The enclosed bedroom provides terrific airflow, with screened windows on all four sides, and A/C should it get too warm. The rest of the space is fully outside: a covered kitchen...

We stayed in the private villa, it was very cute and the view was amazing! We felt like we had our own private room in paradise. We loved having a kitchen, we made fresh fruit smoothies every morning which was amazing. Every night the sunset was beautiful, the pool was great after a day at the beach. Overall would recommend...

We stayed for two weeks at the Surf vista Villas. We went with two toddlers, two adults and two teens (who stayed in small apartment) and my sister came as well with her family staying in a separate villa. We had a great visit. Staying at the top of the hill was great. No dust, great views, morning monkey calls...

Just returned from spending 10 days at Surf Vista Villas and it was amazing. Although up a very large hill from town (you need an ATV) it makes it that much more special. Waking up to White Faced Monkeys, Howlers, Iguanas and lovely birds each day was amazing. The rooms were clean and so spacious and the staff do an...

We just returned home from a great time in Santa Teresa. SVV was perfect! Clean rooms, great hosts, stunning views, and MONKEYS! We watched monkeys from our rooms every day we were there...magical! The quad rentals being on-site were perfect and convenient. Although we had a rental car, the quad was great for exploring some of the dirt roads. Thank...

Everything Peter S (recent review) said is true, and just about exactly what I'd write. My partner and I didn't surf but we did go on some pretty neat excursions (on a Surf Vista Villa ATV, of course!), including a trip to see the falls in Montezumma (about 40 minutes away), zip-lining (about 20 minutes away) and Hermosa Beach (about...
