Reviewed 13 December 2015

The location, people, food, and accommodations were beyond expectations. So nice to be on the sand yet hidden from view within the tree line and away from the dusty road along Playa Carmen. Very relaxing. For us Casa Cecilia embodied Pura Vida! Eager to return.

Long awaited return to Santa Teresa and Casa Cecilia and I was not disappointed. Don & crew have the perfect balance for a relaxing b&b with a great surf break out front. Well deserving of 5* Just wish I could visit more often......

Great place to stay. Woke to see the waves right out the front door every morning. Never slept better with the sound of them crashing only 150 meters away! The staff is tremendously friendly, helpful with local knowledge, and will paddle out with you to help with the break break-down.

My wife and I stayed here for 8 days (9/17-9/25). We stayed in the beach view room upstairs, and we absolutely loved it. Hotel is perfect. Bed was comfortable, room was comfy, Don cooks an amazing breakfast, great beach, awesome surf, shaded hammocks, and more! We really have nothing bad to say about Casa Cecilia. If you want a chill...

My surfing buddies were two days ahead of me, and by the time I arrived in-country, they told me they found a place in Santa Teresa and to head down from Liberia. I was somewhat reluctant to return to Santa Teresa/Mal Pais, as the build-up in the area over the last 15 years is well known. Well, a chance turn...

This was our fifth time staying at Casa Cecilia and we already booked our trip for next year. There is no better place to stay in Santa Teresa. This is the only hotel right on the beach with an unobstructed view of the beautiful ocean. I have checked them all. Coffee is ready for you when you get up followed...
