We checked out the website carefully before we booked.it looked the kind of place we wanted.laid back , on the beach and close to good waves.it turned out to be an excellent choice.Peter the owner was a great host., helpful and very knowledgable, any problems were sorted easily.every person who we came in contact with was really friendly and polite, made us feel at home and let us really feel relaxed. The food in the restaurant was always
Delicious but the service is not rushed or too formal.the atmosphere is really chilled with great music and lots of cool friendly peple around
the gardens were full of wildlife, we saw a beautiful anteater one day by the bar. The accommodation is not chain hotel type, but clean, comfortable, spacious and adequately equipped and the water was always hot.
overall, we got excellent value for money, and a big thankyou to peter and his staff for a very pleasurable stay.

Myself and twoof my mates stayed at Itauna for fourteen, beautiful and relaxing days. Peter and his staff were always available, friendly and helpful. I have been to Santa Teresa several times and have stayed at varying levels of accomodation. I can assure all that Ranchos Itauna ranks right at the top. I would return without hesitation and hope to do exactly that next year.

Cheers!!

Thank you to Pedro, Fatima, their friends, and all the staff at Ranchos Itauna for the great friendly service!!! My husband and I were only there for two days but we had an incredible time in Santa Teresa, the weather was perfect! I loved the atmosphere at Ranchos Itauna, a peaceful experience. We had such a fun and relaxing time at their sunset sessions with awesome music and food. I also need to thank Raquel for the amazing massage by at sunset by the beach (; I highly recommend this place. May God keep Blessing all the amazing people we met here!!
love-
MARS

Me and my wife stayed there in january for a couple of days. The owner asked us to write a review on this platform. I just don´t know why?
First of all, it´s a surf camp, not a hotel as written on their homepage. The 4 rooms they offer, are a kind of dorm rooms for 4 people and they are much too close to the unpaved and very dusty road (apx. 40 to 50 ft). Because of this it´s very noisy and extremely, unhealthy dusty all day and night long. The backyard of their rooms looks terrible.
Although it´s called a Beachfront Hotel, you can´t see or hear the ocean from the rooms. What you see is just the dusty road and the ugly backyard.
Next thing is, there is no privacy at all. Lying in your bed you have to look directly to one of the beds of your immediate neighbor room if doors are opened. We didn´t like this situation. The walkway to the beach, the bar and restaurant is passing by right in front of the rooms. From there you can look or even grab right through the window into the room. People are passing by all day and night long. It was terrible!
The mattresses seemed not to be changed since years. They smelled sourly. Disgustingl
One night there was a party at the beach bar and hundreds of people passed by till 6 am! Very loud techno music. Impossible to sleep. They broke in in one of the neighbor rooms and several things got stolen. Realy scary!
Our points of view regarding the "hotel" are for sure completely different to the austrian owner´s one. They are different in every sense we found out during our stay. From a certain time on also because of this everything got a kind of strange vibe for us. Worse luck.
But the beachfront garden is nice. Two surf spots are roughly 15 min walk away.
You can't swim at their beachfront. It´s too rocky and there are very strong currents. It´s fine at low tide.
All in all … not for everybody … nothing for us.

Ranchositauna, Owner at Ranchos Itauna, responded to this reviewResponded 13 January 2014

first off all that review feels like someone wants to damage our image. we never had a client with this name last year. then why doing a review one year later ???? also we had no break in last year in january !!! that's an absolout LIE !!!!! our rooms are also no dormstyle rooms. dust problem had everyone in st.teresa cause of that road but meanwhile they paved and there is no dust anymore !!!! with the backyard you probably mean my neighbores property where i have absolut NO influence to change anything. usually peopel look into the tropical green front yard !!! and not back into the neighbores yard !!! also you can hear the ocean from the property and you can see the ocean cause we are right infront.!!!! how you can't see it ???? and the swimming is the best in whole st.teresa on low tide infront of our place !!!
if you check my other reviews no one complains about that what this person invents. sorry but it seems more that you have been in someone elses property !!!!!!!!!!!

My husband and I stayed here for 4 nights and loved it! Peter and his family are so welcoming! We stayed in an upper level cabina. Hot water and cold air! We even had a holiday cat that visited us often! We tried surfing for the first time and Peter is a great coach! I highly recommend this wonderful place! His dogs, Ghandi and Luna were also so friendly! We will return!
