Close to what many say is the best beach on the west coast - Santa Teresa. The pool was in fantastic shape and we used is often. The staff were great. The air-conditioning was a life saver. Several easy routes down to the beach: be careful, the current/surge can be quite powerful here. We woke up to the sounds of howler monkeys every morning.., pretty awesome to wake up to them.
Really good cocktails at a bar nearby called El Smokey Bigote. The best value and cheapest Soda in town is right next door.
Downside: The rooms are separated by thin walls (its an eco-lodge) , if you have noisy neighbours, you'll hear them.
Also, the roads in town are bad, have a decent car to get around. We had a small rental (not a 4X4) - it's fine if you drive slowly. Raratonga provided safe parking.
Overall - I highly recommend this place.More
