You can't visit Santa Teresa, I should say - Costa Rica in general, without a stay at Gumbo Limbo. Our stay was hands down the best part of our trip. The location could not be better - on a hill right off the main road - close to all restaurants and the beach. In my opinion, the best place to...

Staying at Gumbo Limbo was the best decision we made during our vacation at Costa Rica. Fortunately Gumbo Limbo is located off of Santa Teresa’s main street thus being very central to many of the local stores. As a bonus, due to its location on the hillside, it is also isolated from the noise of the town. Gumbo Limbo provides...

My boyfriend and I stayed at Gumbo Limbo for the first time and were very satisfied. We wanted to be close enough to the main road to be a part of the fun stuff but far enough away that we didn't have to deal with the dust and noise. The dust is awful during the dry season and you definitely...

Stayed for 5 days. This is very close to downtown and all the local establishments. The place is up a pretty steep hill, so a 4X4 is a must, but literally 1/8th of a mile from the main strip. The staff, especially Juan were fantistic. The views from the pool are the best in the city. There are 4 bungalows...

We spent some of our best time during our stay in Santa Teresa. This beautiful and nature surrounded villas have the best panoramic views in town and you will be able to see the best of Costa Rican flora and fauna. Clean rooms, a friendly staff and a great swimming pool makes Gumbo Limbo the best option you can take!

We stayed for three nights and loved it here. Our villa had two rooms and a great view from a private terrace. There is a small pool in front of the villa which is very nice. The hotel is on the mountain/hill which is nice because it is quiet and in a very natural surrounding. The hill is difficult to...

Was supposed to stay there for 2 nights for my birthday and lucky me had some friends who made a surprise reservation in another hotel for me and my wife. The Villa that was assigned to us is not even close to what they advertise in their website, very poor maintenance and totally different layout. Though in house staff are...

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
