We didn't stay at the lodge but heard a lot about the great service and sushi night so had to give it a try! The dark sign on the road outside was hard to spot, but after finding it we were pleasantly surprised. The margarita was delicious and the sushi was on point. We had sashimi, rolls and a tuna...

Let's start with the food... Amazing!!! Joaquin and nacho handle the kitchen like pros. 5 star meals every day with fresh ingredients and creativity within the plate. Never ate the same thing since each night's meal revolved around the fresh, local catch. Super Bueno!! Accommodation was also too notch. We stayed in the dorm and it was large, spacious and...

The staff at the restaurant (Nacho & crew!) were great. They were always helpful, warm and set a really cool vibe for hanging out, even with two younger kids (7 & 11). Even when walking around town & at the beach everyone would say "hi" and was happy to chat. After spending 10 days, we felt part of the community...

We stayed at Funky Monkey for a week of surfing and we can all highly recommend it. The staff are super cool and friendly, and in addition to giving you great tips on surf spots etc., they are amazing chefs! The place is really cozy and the atmosphere is laidback and cool. Also, the guys play great music at night!

We have just come to the end of a great week at Funky Monkey and would highly recommend it. The location is perfect for reaching many of the local surf spots, we had a car but there is also a spot within walking distance. We stayed in a private bungalow which was comfortable. I was a little worried about not...

Awesome! We came as a group of friends looking for somewhere to stay, hang out and chill in between trips to different surf breaks in the area. The first thing we noticed was the friendly attitude of all the staff and awesome music playing in the background, which continued all week long. This is place is known for its food...

Located centrally in Santa Teresa, run with a big smile by a great crew with great food, I highly recommend the Funky Monkey. The open bar common area makes for a social place to make friends, the rooms are nice and big, and the showers facing outward are quite an interesting experience in themselves.

Stayed here for a week in the large bungalow and it was great! Loved the super relaxed and open atmosphere. Since I paid for a package with activities and food included I was able to walk around from a day of surfing or hanging out at the pool with no keys, no wallet, no nothing and no worries. We never...

“If you want cheaper the shared rooms are great and a good way to meet other traveler. If you want it to be quite try to book the rooms furthest away from the restaurant even thought they shut down at 10pm I believe so it's not too bad.”
