We stayed in Armonia lodge for 1 week to celebrate my birthday and get some waves in a stunning location. We were not dissapointed. If anything we were surprised at the high quality of the accommodation, the attentiveness and personal nature of the staff as well the location. When they say 2 minutes to the beach: they mean like 1...

I went from being a first time surfer (had never done it prior to this vacation) to paddling out "past the break!" Toro was so kind and patient. He was able to teach me so much - water safety, surf etiquette, surf technique, etc. I always felt safe with him, which was most important to me. However, he was able...

We just got home from a fabulous week at Blue Surf Sanctuary. We are already looking at dates to go back. We loved everything about it! The staff were so warm and fabulous and the rooms were large and cleaned beautifully everyday. We decided to rent a quad for the week. The staff coordinated everything and it was delivered right...

We stayed there for 8 nights, a group of 3 families with young kids. The shared kitchen is great, so is the small pool which offers some shade during the hot mid-day hours. The team was super friendly and helpful - the receptionists, cleaning team, night guards, maintenance - really everyone!! We had great time there!

If you are going to Santa Teresa and are thinking about surfing, there truly is no other option than Blue Surf. The rooms are awesome. AC, electricity, big shower and comfy bed. You need nothing else because you should be outside enjoying their many shaded lounge areas, the pool or the 2 min walk to the Pacific ocean. The staff...

Blue Surf Sanctuary was all we needed to have an incredible Spring break experience. My husband was the only one with surf experience (he was in heaven!) but all of us got up by the third day. Our children (10 year old son and 7 year old daughter) had a fantastic time! Toro and Danny were incredibly patient, kind and...

I love Santa Teresa and try to go a couple of times a year. I found this small hotel located 50 meters away from the beach, nice staff, comfortable rooms. We talk a couple of surf lessons, Toro the instructor was excellent, patient and professional!

If you're looking for a tropical getaway with some adventure and a lot of relaxation, Blue Surf is just the place.

I just returned home after a wonderful, week-long stay at Blue Surf Sanctuary. I traveled to Santa Teresa as part of a group to attend a wedding at a nearby property.
