No one was there as advised online.. No bartender all day and the grounds smelled of sewage!! There breakfast was just fruit as they said they ran out of the other food!!
The road up the mountain is extremely dangerous.. Trust me!!
I am a regular off roader at home, as I have a lifted 4W jeep.. Even with a 4 wheel drive in Costa Rica it was still outrageously dangerous!! Straight up!! I pushed the pedal to the medal and we were only going 5km/h
The view was nice from one spot in the bar area (not the pool or porch, as there was to much vegetation to see anything), prob the only nice thing about the whole stay... Oh yea and the pool was more greenish then clear
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- Gumbo Limbo is a unique bed & breakfast located in the hills of Santa Teresa, just 2 minutes to Santa Teresa beach and town. Along with stunning ocean views, Gumbo Limbo's central, hilltop location provides seclusion- a nice break from the dust and bustle of town, while being only a 2 minute drive to the beach and main road. A 4x4 vehicle, which is generally better for Costa Rica roads, is recommended to reach our property. Each of our villas is surrounded by lush, tropical nature, giving total privacy, comfort, and a real feeling of being in the jungle. From every corner of our property, you can find amazing ocean and mountain views. Our beautiful infinity pool is the perfect spot to relax and watch the best sunsets Santa Teresa has to offer. A full breakfast is included in your stay. It is served each morning in our ocean view dining area. Some of our breakfast options include granola and yogurt with fresh fruits, eggs with gallo pinto, or pancakes, all served with fresh Costa Rican coffee. Our guests are our priority. It comes natural for us to host people and make new friends, so it is our pleasure to cover every small detail and accommodate our guests' needs so that they have the best time while staying with us. Many of our guests have told us that their experience visiting Gumbo Limbo felt more like staying with old friends, than staying at a hotel. Whether it's sharing a surf session or an Argentinean asado together, we look forward to having you!! ... more less
