My husband and I just got back from a one week surf and yoga package stay at Blue Surf and we are already planning to go back. Our surf instructor Toro was knowledgeable, relaxed, and an excellent teacher. By the end of the week he helped us both catch and ride the waves. We always felt safe and the one-on-one...

I loved this place. The manager, Sofia and her husband/the surf instructor Tauro, were super friendly and knowledgeable about the area and the surf conditions. You get your own cabin all to yourselves with a balcony and a nice bathroom. The shower has a clothes drying line which was super handy. The pool is small and a bit mirky but...

My wife and I chose Blue Surf Sanctuary for our 20th Anniversary. We wanted a place where we could relax, surf, and relax some more. We couldn't have picked a better place than Blue Surf Sanctuary. The property is a 100 meters to the beach, has a great plunge pool that's refreshing, and the grounds and bungalows were immaculately maintained....

My girlfriend and I stayed at Blue Surf for 5 nights and had an amazing time. Everyone on staff was super helpful and really made our trip special. The hotel is a short couple hundred feet walk to a beautiful beach and awesome surf break. We can't wait to visit Santa Teresa again!

Our first time in Costa Rica was fantastic. The online booking process was excellent. Blue Surf is 100m to the beach and close to the shops and restaurants. Our ATV was reserved by the staff and delivered to us. Toro (an excellent surf instructor) and Sofia were so kind, as were the entire staff. We used the outdoor kitchen often...

Traveled there with my boyfriend and another friend and we all shared the Pacifico suite with two queen beds. The bungalow was more than spacious enough for the three of us, with very high ceilings, an excellent working AC, and beautiful bathroom. Initially walking into Blue Surf, I said, "Wow". It is just absolutely gorgeous, and the perfect hideaway. It...

The time I spent at Blue Surf was relaxing and laid back. The grounds, well maintained,,, the villas, very clean and comfortable,,, the hosts, friendly and helpful in every way I needed assistance.

My sisters and I spent three nights at Blue Surf Sanctuary and thoroughly enjoyed our stay. It's a really pretty and laid back place. "Maggie," Sofia and Johnny were lovely and accommodating. Breakfast and Pilates classes at the very swishy Flor Blanca hotel were wonderful. We are not surfers and found the surf too strong for swimming or even much...
