Richard was key in making our stay at Casa Azul in Costa Rica as wonderful as could be. The buildings and grounds are beautiful, meticulously maintained, and landscaped like a dream. The location is super convenient to most anything you would want in Santa Theresa. And, the best part is you have no idea the hustle and bustle is only 200 meters away, because all you hear and see is the ocean. There is a wonderful open-air pavilion that we used for yoga, watching surfers, and enjoying the hammock. Beautiful iguanas lazed in the sun while we did the same in the gorgeous pool. The rooms and cabanas are super modern; large showers, amazing AC, beautiful tiled floors, gorgeous woodwork, all with a relaxed feel. His staff are wonderful. Large safe boxes for my valuables added peace of mind to my stay.
His recommendations for activities; from surfing to restaurants, and most importantly, culture, was spot on. This is truly a labor of love and it shows.
