This small beachfront resort is set on a large, mostly forested piece of land fronting a prime patch of sand in the center of Santa Teresa. You can opt for the older, spacious, and economical garden units, or splurge for a newer beachfront room or bungalows. These latter bungalows feature roughhewn wood planks for walls and peaked wood ceilings; it’s a handsome look. In recent years, they've also added darn nice glamping tents. The expansive grounds here are covered with tall pochote trees that are often frequented by roaming bands of howler monkeys. The hotel has a small pool, a yoga studio and a spa, all with ocean views, and the Shambala restaurant is excellent. Some of the most coveted surf spots in Santa Teresa are directly in front of this resort.
