An awesome location only a few steps from the beach. There are four individual bungalows which are amazing. I'll post pictures rather than trying to describe them. We stayed in the "Armonia" room which is located furthest from the entrance. The way that its set up, it would be hard not to meet and get to know the other guests....

The Blue Surf Sanctuary is a great place for enjoying the Surf and Sun. Laura has a five star attitude and provided great service with the transportation needs, restaurants, laundry and spa services (Daniela is the best!). The accommodations are very nice with great AC, daily housekeeping services and a friendly and engaging staff. The tree frogs, monkeys and birds...

This place is amazing... Be aware you will fall in love with this place as soon as you step inside the gate. The grounds are immaculate, the staff friendly, helpful and awesome, and the rooms are spotless and have such a beach house feel. I loved every bit of my stay from the comped morning coffee, to the homey common...

We had a great time relaxing on the beach and wandering around the peninsula on the ATV. During low tide we would wander around the tide pools looking for shells and fish. We did the zipline at Montezuma Falls, which was very nice. It had rained very hard the night before, so the water was muddy while we were there,...

Blue Surf was awesome. Beautiful rooms and outside landscaping. Everything about blue surf is relaxing and just the escape we all needed. The staff is wonderful, super helpful, and accommodating. I couldn't have asked for a better experience while in Santa Teresa!

First trip to Costa Rica. The people at the sanctuary are amazing, all extremely nice and helpful. We surfed every day and explored a few of the areas around, all recommended by the staff at blue surf. Couldn't be happier with Blue Surf and it's employees.

Great people running the hotel, location and room. This was our first time in Santa Teresa. Blue Surf Sanctuary turned out to be a great location for us. A short walk to the beach, beach bar, and yoga + dinner at Florblanco. Away from the hustle and bustle further to the south. A wonderful oasis. Only negative was the rooms...

I recently visited Blue Surf Sanctuary for my friends wedding and it was AMAZING. The beach is just steps away and gorgeous. There is always someone available to help you with basically ANYTHING (literally 24/7). And the beach bar/restaurant has amazing food, drinks and service. NO complaints whatsoever.

... But this place made a first trip to Santa Teresa easy. We were here for a wedding so our party had taken over the 4 cabanas. The staff was super helpful from renting quads for the day or week to surf lessons to excursions. They never let us down and put us at ease if we ever needed anything....
