Beautiful setting, great staff, not clean

Posted Aug 17, 2017
We really enjoyed the property and the staff was very helpful. The food was healthy and delicious and they recommended Habaneros in town for our last dinner in Costa Rica. Nice restaurant situated right on the beach. It was pleasure to stay in this beautiful location and relax in the pool and hammocks. However the villa was not clean and had stained sheets, towels, and curtains. There was hair (not ours) in the shower. Also the wooden doors and slider did not shut well. Lots of critters in our room and the bathroom with outdoor shower was not used do to the excessive amount of critters. Wish the toilet and sink were enclosed as to minimize the critters. I felt the price was high considering the lack of cleanliness and maintenance in the villa. Overall a nice place if you enjoy yoga, surf, and rustic villas.

Thank you dear Guest for taking the time to write Of course, I was devastated to hear you were not happy….and I certainly appreciate the chance to respond. I will start with our outdoor bathrooms…..we recognize that for some people the beauty does not outweigh the hazards, but honestly…most people love the outdoor bathrooms and tolerate any little critters that find their way there. (And they most certainly do). We are in the topics and we do not use chemicals, I have the philosophy that “I just borrowed this land from the insect and animal world”. (And they are winning!). On our website it is clear that we have these outdoor baths and most people love them…and are not surprised if leaves fall and ants nest. It is not for everyone, but I spend two months a year in Bali where I discovered these bathrooms and they have become my signature bath….this is my third hotel I built here in Costa Rica…and I love the baths so I always repeat. But again, I recognize that there is a minority of folks not so enamored…. As for stained sheets and curtains, we are always checking….always…but it is possible with white sheets that there are some permanently stained that pass by the inspection of my head housekeeper. The tropics with the humidity and rain are tough with mold..and quite honestly since I do not allow bleach, nearly impossible to not have some stains…..but I assure you of this…we are fastidious in our cleaning of the sheets and towels….. And….oh the white towels suffer so with women facial makeup. I have tried everything…to stop women from using the white towels as make up removers….because foundation does not come out….and I do apologize because I have a whole series of white towels that have some stains.

Wonderful

My husband and I stayed here for six nights and had an amazing time. Very private very beautiful area. And the free breakfast is stellar. Staff and bartenders are wonderfully helpful. We couldn't have asked for more and I would highly recommend staying here!

Fantastic piece of paradise

Pranamar was a fantastic place to enjoy our time in Santa Teresa. We stayed at one of the pool side villas and the accommodations are 5 star. Great restaurant with excellent variety of tasty, healthy options. Highly recommended.

yoga setting by the beach !

Couple stay for the long weekend turned out to be very much relaxed, a bit too much for our taste. If you don´t surf or do yoga this might not be the place for you.

Beautiful hotel

Posted Sep 10, 2016
This hotel is absolutely beautiful! The villas are large, the pool was right outside our door. The furniture however was not overly comfortable. The beds were hard and the furniture inside was damp from all the moisture in the air.

ALOT OF BUGS!!! NO SCREENS IN THIS HOTEL!!!

Posted May 5, 2016
This was the worse experience I've EVER had. To start off. There was NO screens and it was open so bugs can get inside. I payed 380$ a night not to expect CRABS running around in my bathroom and 200 flys in my kitchen. It was ridiculous. I came back to LA with 28 bites because of there POOR job in wrapping that place up. I'm sorry but I wouldn't recommend this to anyone.
