"Very pleasant stay, staff made very nice. Congrat!"
We used the hotel bus from San Jose, comfortable and excellent service. Reception staff Gonzalo & Alex outstanding. Very pls with the staff in the restaurants and with the cleanness regardless we stayed on a long week end with lots of people. The food was very good as well as the maintenance and cleanness of the room. The gardens beautiful ! The beach, if you walk a few yards to the left you can find a lovely beach with lots of vegetation nearby.
I have never stayed anywhere where I have felt so one with nature! We spotted an armadillo foraging around behind our cabin, the sounds of the howler monkeys and cicadas at night was so loud and the Pacific Ocean was also rather noisy- but it was so brilliant to hear all these wild sounds and wake up in the most beautiful surroundings. Perfect getaway.
The El Sano Banano is a great choice for travellers on a budget! You have access to the gorgeous pool at the Ylang Ylang Resort without paying the high price.
We stayed at El Sano for 3 nights. The staff are great and there are lots of choices for the breakfast that is included. Not your typical toast muffin and cereal here - hot breakfasts, fruit, yogurt, granola etc.
Our only complaint was that the shower was not hot water, and you had to be brave in the morning! But it is perfect and much needed after a day on the beach.
We chose Hotel Tropico Latino for our honeymoon stay in Santa Teresa, and it was gorgeous. We went with the beach bungalow, which I would highly recommend for anyone who's looking for some quiet privacy with a personal hammock and a very nearby beach. The staff was very friendly and accommodating, and the food at the hotel restaurant is pricey but really delicious and worth trying at least once. I loved that you could have drinks brought to you right on the beach all afternoon. And the beach is mostly sandy with very few rocky parts - a lot of strong waves, though, and great for surfing if you're into it. While in itself being very private and relaxing, the hotel's location is conveniently located along the same road as many local sodas, bars and supermarkets, and it is also easy to rent an ATV and take a day trip to see Montezuma Falls. We also used a local tour agency to take a day trip to Tortuga Island for snorkeling, and went horseback riding at a nearby ranch. So, there's tons to see and do, and yet the option to absolutely do nothing and enjoy the peace and tranquility of the warm ocean breeze. I would highly, highly recommend it, and hope to get back there again someday!
