Costa Riki Apartments
Reviewed 26 September 2013

My husband and I stayed at Costa Riki for one month during our three month travel adventure in Costa Rica! Because of our extended stay, we visited Santa Teresa a couple of weeks prior to scope out the town and accommodation choices. We randomly drove by Costa Riki and decided to stop and check it out. When we met Riki (owner) and saw the property, we fell in love and made an almost instantaneous decision to stay there! In the days leading up to our stay, communicating via email with Francesca (Riki's wife) was very easy and she was very prompt to answer any questions we had. We stayed in a one bedroom apartment upstairs and it was very spacious, clean and affordable. The kitchen was great for us to make all of our meals and included a blender, oven, and large fridge. Costa Riki is centrally located to everything you might need during your stay in Santa Teresa. Within a 5 minute walk you can be at: the beach, yoga studio, grocery store, breakfast & lunch cafes, surf shop or bike shop! The owners of the property are extremely friendly and accommodating! We cannot emphasize this enough. We absolutely loved every minute of our stay at Costa Riki and hope to return one day. Costa Riki was THE BEST place we stayed in our 3 month stay Costa Rica!

I strongly recommend Costa Riki Apartments if you're looking for a peaceful and clean place that is just a short walk from the beach, supermarket and several restaurants. The apartments are fairly large and are great for solo persons, couples or family with small children. There are only 6 apartments to rent and the owners have created a great and relaxing atmosphere. If you want a place to relax in very peaceful surroundings after a busy day in the surf or traveling around this is a perfect place to get peace and quiet. The hosts are from Italy and are very nice, warm and service minded people. They did everything to make my stay as pleasant as possible. I couldn't be happier with my stay at Costa Riki apartments. Perfect.

Bang for your buck. In the heart of Santa Teresa and directly across from beach access.

The apartments are fully loaded, comfortable, and totally secure. Its just a short walk to the super, so you can save by cooking your own food in the kitchen.

I have spent a lot of time in the area and the surrounding towns, and Costa Riki is by far the nicest place to stay in Santa Teresa. The property is beautiful, the units are secure and quiet, and you can walk straight to the beach! The owners are very friendly and accommodating which for me is so important because I stay there for longer periods of time. Anything that needs to be fixed is taken care of right away. And I am always greeted with a huge smile from everyone who works there. There is a large patio or balcony space for each unit which is so great to relax on, eat breakfast, etc. Everything inside the units are new and well maintained. And the bathrooms are quite large for the hotels in Santa Teresa which is so nice. Even the landscaping is amazing. I definitely recommend Costa Riki for your stay. I can't say enough good things that I like about it. It just feels good to be there.

Practical and very clean apartments. Few meters to the best surf break of this area. Excellent service (almost like in a hotel). The owners are very nice and dedicated in helping their guests. It is a new building with new furnitures very useful. Everything works at Costa Riki apartments !
