We LOVED our stay at Surf Vista Villas. We were upstairs in the Roca Mar suite - a huge room with 3 beds, a sofa area and floor to ceiling windows giving us THE BEST sunset views we've ever seen. Cota was so helpful and full of great tips, from booking our ATV for us (recommended if you're heading there...

We were looking forward to visiting Santa Teresa and staying at Surf Vista Villas - neither disappointed. While not really falling into the Family or Couples category TripAdvisor ask us to select for these reviews, it was my mother and me travelling together around Costa Rica; two adults with a sense of adventure. Our room could have slept 6 with...

We are very happy that you enjoyed your stay at Santa Teresa Surf Vista Villas. I do have a few issues to address regarding your review. First of all.

I cannot recommend this place highly enough. First of all, the setting is absolutely breathtaking. It's situated on the top of a large, secluded hill away from the hustle and bustle of Santa Teresa. The place is surrounded by the jungle with a near 180-degree view of the coast. There are lots of interesting plants and animals to look at....

We were visiting Costa Rica in November 2016. We stayed in Surf Vista Villas in Santa Teresa. Because we really want to stay in that place we had to move 3 times ( which wasn't problem at all because Andy and staff made it for us very easy) the place is very popular. We start in Mar Azul Villa moved...

Andy, Cota, the staff and the animals were all very friendly and accommodating. They were great about anticipating our needs. The convenience was hard to beat as Andy was able to arrange quad rental, surf lessons, board rentals, taxis and give great advice on dining, surf spots, directions, etc.. Getting to Santa Teresa is a challenge, but once we were...

My fiancee and I stayed here for a few days in the beginning of February. It was a beautiful place with lots of space and privacy. We loved having a full kitchen to cook with! It is a up a very steep hill, but we managed to walk up and down no problem. The hike up the hill is worth...

We really enjoyed our 6 night stay here. The villas are right at the top of the hill so the views are incredible and a good workout if you prefer not to rent an ATV. The pool area is a lovely place to hang out. Andy and Cota were great hosts and very approachable. Would thoroughly recommend.

This place was simply amazing! Andy is an awesome host. He gives you plenty of space but is there whenever you need him. He knows everything's about the area and is eager to give you advice on where to go if you need it. We stayed in one of the two top units and had the most unreal views. It...

My wife and I absolutely love coming to Surf Vista Villas! It's seriously our happy place. We stayed here for our honeymoon in 2013 and just stayed again a last week.
