We loved Casa Cecilia! A beautiful beach, wonderful hammocks among the palm trees right next to the beach. Nice and tidy area in front of the hotel down to the beach. We had the only "second floor" room and it was perfect. The hotel is in a bit of a remote area (at the north end of Santa Teresa beach),...

I came with a group and we stayed a week at the beautiful Casa Cecilia. The home was beautiful and the beach in the back yard was breath taking. There was ample seating outside to enjoy the view and the common areas were clean and comfortable at all times. My room had everything we needed. Don and his staff took...

We traveled with a group of 11 people to Stand Up Paddleboard and experience the other activities in Santa Teresa-Mal Pais. Don is an amazing host and made sure our every need was met. He and Pia both went out of their way to make sure we were fed an amazing fresh breakfast every day before we left for our...

You need to know a little about Santa Teresa first. Getting here is an adventure. If you are coming directly from San Jose, you'll be taking the ferry, and traveling though a few kilometers of dirt roads (don't be alarmed). We traveled around the northern part of Costa Rica and circled back to San Jose via Santa Teresa. This proved...

What do you require for a relaxing beach holiday? A space to sleep where the sound of the water reminds you of what the next day is to bring...eating colorful fresh fruits, granola and yogurt while facing the ocean in the open air living room...the best restaurant in town is only a few steps away...suspend yourself in a hammock under...

My wife and I stayed here back in February of this year. We were in Santa Teresa for a wedding and Casa Cecilia worked out perfect for our group. We had the whole place rented between several couples/roomies. Don was the man as far as anything goes, just ask Don (and he was always there to serve breakfast). Great way...

My sister and I recently stayed at Casa Cecilia, and thoroughly enjoyed ourselves! We were traveling on a budget and were so excited to find such a reasonably priced, cool spot, directly on the beach. You can sit at the breakfast table in the open-air shared "living room," and the only thing between you and the ocean are some palm...

My wife and I had our honeymoon/surf vacation and stayed at Casa Cecilia for 2 weeks. The location is perfect for just about anything you can possibly do on the peninsula. You can wake up and watch the surf right out front or the villa. Don the manager is simply the man! He made us a killer breakfast each morning,...
