Juan Carlos is extremely cool and helpful, a surfer like us who took time to fill us on in the good spots. He even offered to take us surfing with him and a friend. He upgraded us to a big room with a giant sun porch. This was the best place we stayed in Costa Rica.

We stayed at two hotels during our trip to Santa Teresa. The first hotel shall remain nameless and the last one was Canaima Chill House. Boy did we kick ourselves for not having chosen Canaima for the full length of our stay! From the moment we pulled in, the owner was extra helpful and informative. The room was spectacular. Excellently...

Can you give 6 stars for service? Can you give 6 stars for value? We travelled through Costa Rica for 3 weeks - and stayed at the best reviewed hotels in the country - but the CCH was without doubt the best of the lot. From the second we arrived Juan Carlos made us feel so welcome and gave us...

Canaima Chill House is an extremely easy-going treasure trove of stylish comforts and tropical foliage perched on a hill just above the main street running through Santa Theresa. It's an easy walk to stunning sections of beach with great surf ,delicious and reasonably priced places to eat, and very cool nightlife with varying themes - reggae night, latina night, shammy...
