Nice close-to the beach hotel, with swimming pool to take a dip. It might be better called hostel, than hotel. Food is delicious and prepared at the moment.

Nice small place very close to the beach
While there were a few hiccups when I arrived a little early for check in, everything was good after! I’d stay there again!

Nice hotel
This hotel is very small, which I prefer. I stayed in one of the triple balcony rooms which had a lovely vaulted ceiling and private balcony with hammock. The room itself was set up nicely with a built-in shelving system for our stuff and a large bathroom tiled in natural terracotta and mosaic tiles. It was clean by Costa Rican standards.. Atrapasuenos offers a parking lot in back and a shortcut entrance towards the beach right in front of one of the best surfing spots and some tidepools. Breakfast is served in a covered courtyard, but served in Tico time so don't go if you're in a rush! Wi-fi was unreliable unfortunately. The hotel is located very close to the popular Banana Beach restaurant and you can hear their music which was kind of annoying. Also you can hear other guests through the walls. The location is right off the main road which is convenient, but is very dusty during dry season. The staff who I communicated with were very friendly and helpful in recommending places to go and setting up some transportation!

Good choice for Santa Teresa
One of the better Costa Rica hotels I've stayed in, despite some glitches. Breakfast was good and service courteous. Had some technical difficulties, but all worked out. The convenient location can't be beat if you want to be in Santa Teresa.
