Richard is an awesome host at Hotel Casa Azul. He has helped me to spend a significant amount of time in Santa Teresa, find my way around, and resolve problems. The hotel is really clean, organized, and pleasant. I stayed in the small room, one of the ocean-view rooms, and also for a few days in the upstairs suite in the main building. This is the best location in the whole area: right on the beach where there is a massive, consistent beach break. I surfed once or twice per day, every day on excellent waves. The water is literally a couple of hundred steps from the room. The pool is perfectly located in lovely gardens, and there is a yoga pagoda with a hammock for the use of any guest. All the rooms come with their own hammock, except for the small room. A/C is good, WiFi is good (in the main building). Santa Teresa has great cafes, bars, and restaurants, and it's got a great small-town, friendly, non-touristy feel. I highly recommend Hotel Casa Azul.
