Surf Vista Villas is absolutely amazing. My husband and I stayed here for a week, and if it wasn't for the bad!!!!!! road through Santa Teresa, we would have stayed longer.

We did not want to leave! Full equiped villas. Spectacular view. Nice place to rest between two surf sessions. Andy and Cota are very nice hosts. Fresh air on top of a hill. I will be back! Nothing to say against it. Perfect stay!

Surf Vista Villas was awesome. It's nice and quiet up on the hill and away from all the action (and dust) down in the town. You can hear and see plenty of wildlife (monkeys' birds, etc) right around the villas. The room and entire property was very clean and comfortabIe. It was a beautiful place to stay! We were glad...
