I stayed at the Funky Monkey for a week with 20 girls for a surf camp, then stayed an extra couple nights by myself. The staff was really friendly, the food was amazing and the accommodations were clean and comfortable (despite a ridiculous rainstorm and mud slide).
The bunk rooms were comfortable for a group and the smaller bungalows were very nice.
There is a comfortable communal area where regulars play board games and a little guitar music. Everyone is really comfortable and makes you feel at home.
The bar closes early so it's pretty quiet most nights.
The lodge is about a quarter mile from the beach (with the surf shops about 1/2 way between), an easy walk in flipflops.
The pool is beautiful and quiet.
There is an open air silk yoga studio that has a beautiful view and the instructor is also an owner.
As a female traveling alone I felt very comfortable both in Santa Theresa and at the Funky Monkey. The staff can help you get around or book or recommend any activities you have in mind.More
