Hotel Principe del Pacifico is clean, tidy and has all the essentials but what makes it amazing is how James, Marilin, Christian and all the crew go out of their way to make your stay special and help where they can. Principe is right opposite a beach access (a premium in Santa Teresa), so great surf is no more than 150m away from your room. The principe is suitable for all types of guests, couples, families, singles (there's a night club just down the road). Marilin has great tips for the best places in town but there are great restaurants/cafes walkable distance (try Kika, Ginger, Cafe Tiquicia), a minimarket about 3-400m in either direction and an awesome surf shop where you can hire boards for about $15USp/d or you can buy a beaten up board for about $100. It's also a mini animal park, visits from parrots, iguanas, squirrels and lots of different birds.
Principe has a pool, it's unfenced for those with young kids, but great design with a big shallow end for the kids to play in - bring floaty wings for littlies, we could only find vests/rings to replace our broken ones. We travelled with our baby, and 3 year old and it was great for us, the rooms we stayed in had kitchens which helped, there are cribs available. We absolutely loved and will return one day!More
