During our stay we were already planning a trip back! We can't reccomend this place more highly. Highlights for us were: comfortable bed with crisp white sheets and nice pillows, fun shower, friendly staff, decor and design, quiet location.

this hotel is a really special and amazing place. you find yourself in paradise. surrounded of real rainforest and a little bit up the hill it is perfect to chill after a long surfing day. the staff was very helpful and always knew about the best places to eat or hang out. wish to go back soon.

Wonderful place to chill out and enjoy some quiet time. Staff is extremely friendly and they are willing to go the extra mile to fulfill all the wishes you might have! They organised the most amazing trips for us and gave us insight hints on the best places to visit in the area. Don't miss out on this place, Canaima Chill House is a real oasis!

I found out about this place by looking on trip advisor! Its the perfect place to get away if your looking for peace, tranquility and to get away from it all. Its quiet during the day and night - and the day beds outside your room is probably where you'll be spending most of your time! The cleanliness of the room was fantastic - and the showers and bathroom were amazing, one of my favourite things about my room. The "quiet' time is usually after 9pm..but if your looking to go out there are tons of places right down the road to allow you to meet travellers and drink and eat! The front desk is super friendly and will help you organize anything from day trips, to taxi drivers and atvs! Atvs can be a little pricey for the day, around $50 a day but if you book for a few days sometimes rates can be reduced. I will definitely go back here if I visit Santa Teresa again. Its a must for R&R. They also have great wifi to stay in touch at home (if your that crazy) Thanks Canaima.

Room Tip: rooms on the top floor or second level keep you further away from the walkway if you really don'...

We loved our stay at the chill house. It was a very unique, very relaxing experience. Being a little bit up the hill from town was a disadvantage for beach access, but it really helps the property stay quiet and peaceful. The furnishing was amazing and we loved the property. Wish we could have stayed longer.

Room Tip: We loved the fish tacos at Joe's Chicken down in town.

Canaima is a great place to stay, cool interiors, surrounded by nature ran by a lovely guy who is also the surf instructor. We stayed here for a full week with the surf and yoga package. He was a great and patient teacher by the end of the we got to a good beginner level. Would definitely stay here agin.

We spent the 2013 Thanksgiving week with my wife at Canaima Chill House. We'd heard incredible reviews from some friends but we could have never imagined what our eyes saw upon our arrival.

This secret spot that Juan Carlos brought to life some years ago is the perfect place you wanna find yourself just to RELAX (capital letters!), enjoy central-american wildlife (surrounded by monkeys, iguanas, turtles,... every day!) and practice your favorite water sports. We personally love to go surfing so you'd never find a better spot than Playa Santa Teresa, in the Pacific Coast of Costa Rica.

And Canaima Chill House is right in the middle of everything you need. Among the wide jungle, but walking distance to the beach, which has probably the best waves in the country.

Check this place out, you won't go wrong!

We had awesome food, witnessed great sunsets and met amazing hosts that are now our friends.

Thank you Juan Carlos, Alexia and everyone that made our stay so special!

We can't wait to go back next year!!!
