Enjoyed staying here with our 2 young kids (2 and 4). The cabin was small but clean, with a nice outdoor bathroom. Would have liked some hooks for our clothes. Each cabin has a private balcony with pretty garden and hammock, where we enjoyed reading, relaxing, and eating fresh fruit. The proximity to the restaurant is convenient and the food...

I have just returned from a solo trip to Santa Teresa, I stayed at the Funky Monkey. The room I stayed in had air conditioning and hot water. It also had an exceptional balcony that overlooked the rainforest treetops, giving a spectacular view of the ocean. You could sit out there and relax, watch the tropical birds bounce around from...

Funky Monkey, amazing experience. I traveled solo and stayed in the large single room on the second floor above the main common area. King size bed, private bathroom and porch with hammock (which got lots of use) The FM is nestled into the hill away from the noise and dust of the main rd a few hundred yards away. Great...

I really enjoyed my stay at the funky monkey lodge. It's a great sociable place to meet solo travellers if on your own. The food is lovely and breakfast is the best I've had on my trip. Don't miss sushi night (wed & sat). The yoga was very good and studio is very atmospheric. Particularly enjoyed Christof's classes. Gabi is...

Nice place situated on a good spot close to beach and fascilities, but we felt a bit uncomfortable, like we had to excuse us for being there, which is strange considering that we paid 1 600 USD (5 nights, breakfast, dinner, 3 surf lessons & 4 yoga classes included). Staff seemed stressed out (went from charming to arrogant in 3...

We stopped in for some drinks. A great looking venue and good selection at the bar. However the sound system was in a bad state of repair. It was karaoke night and it sounded appalling, and spoiled the entire experience.

Spent week on surf package, the entire entire staff is amazing. Special shout out to Gabi who was available to answer countless questions before stay! And Nacho for perfect surf lessons. Loved especially the pool, in jungle surrounded by beautiful flowers that almost thought was my private pool. Also food fantastic, Nicolas was brilliant - food delicious and presentation felt...

I can't say enough wonderful things about the funky monkey lodge and it's amazing staff. This is the place to stay in Santa Teresa if you want a clean, welcoming place to stay. It's cool, it's fun and they have the best surf instructors (Pura Vida Surfers with Vic and Nacho) in town. The location is excellent, a 5 minute...
