This retreat will take place in Santa Teresa, Costa Rica. It is a quaint, small town and there is only one main road in town, so people usually use landmarks than numbers to share location. The beach village of Playa Santa Teresa is located in the southern tip of the Nicoya Peninsula. Private and secluded Playa Santa Teresa lies on the central Pacific coast of Costa Rica, and is roughly 150 kilometers west of the capital city San Jose and is situated north of the very popular Playa Mal Pais, about 12 kilometers south east of Cobano. This beach is known worldwide for some of the best surfing spots in Central America.

    Review by Lisa Overcash from United States

    CONS Cons: Transportation challenges. Not so easy to get to. Must take a ferry or plane from San Jose airport to Santa Teresa

    Organizer response: Many thanks for staying with us and we are so pleased that Nautilus lived up to your expectation, we look to see you again in the not too distant future. Access is improving as Costa Rica gains in its position as a leading destination, specifically those seeking an immersion vacation away from the corporate pressures. Many guests enjoy the transfer as they switch into vacation mode and Costa Rica takes over..... Regards The Nautilus Team

    Enjoy & Relax!

    CONS Cons: - ik vond de cappuccino niet te doen haha - het avond eten was lekker maar alleen keuze uit drie menus

    PROS Pros: - super goede surfschool (ook als je niet kunt surfen of bang bent) zeker de moeite waard!! - heerlijk ontbijt en lunch - vriendelijk personeel - elke dag wordt je huisje heel goed schoongemaakt!!

    Organizer response: Bedankt voor uw feedback. Onze cappuccino maakt echter gebruik van lokale koffiebonen die bekend staan ​​om hun sterke smaak. Goed punt, we zullen in de toekomst een mildere roast aanbieden. Ook we zijn erg blij dat u Olam Pure Food ontbijt en lunch genoten. Ons avondmenu is een gereduceerd menu dat we rechtdoor naar voren houden en op de meest populaire gerechten ophalen. We hopen dat u een aantal unieke vaardigheden en kennis hebt gekregen uit uw retraite-pakket, en hoop dat u snel terugkomt om ons te vernieuwen ...... vriendelijke groeten Het Nautilus Team Thank you for your feedback. Our cappuccino does however use local coffee beans which are renowned for their strong taste. Good point, we will look to procure a more milder roast in future. Likewise we are very happy you enjoyed Olam Pure Food breakfast and lunch. Our evening menu is a reduced menu which we keep straight forward, picking up on the most popular dishes. We hope you gained some unique skills and knowledge from your retreat package, and hope you will come back to see us soon to refresh...... Regards The Nautilus Team

    "The apartments are really nice, they are one bedroom apartments with a full kitchen/living room. The kitchen has a large fridge, coffee maker, mini oven, toaster etc. utensils are provided. The name of the hotel and the rooms is slightly misleading. Its not really a boutique hotel nor are the rooms villas. They are more liked serviced apartments. You get a key to your room and one for the front door of the hotel, there is a daily cleaning services and that's about it do not expect any more services, any pampering or amenities really (not even free water anywhere). That being said, I would still definitely recommend this hotel. The hotel is in a great location, the rooms are very nice, spacious and comfortable. There are great yoga classes given twice a day for 12 USD per class. There is also a restaurant that has very delicious and healthy food. There is easy access to Santa Teresa beach just walk down a road for a couple hundred meters."

    "Nautilus Boutique Hotel is a gem in the jungle. It's only a few steps from the beach and also located in the middle of the colorful vegetation and wildlife. Each room is a private suite which has a plenty of space to stay. The staff will set you up for whatever activities you like, with the best Santa Teresa has to offer. If you have any inclination, take a surf lesson from Amit at Surf del Soul. The food is all fresh, organic and absolutely delicious. I usually try to get out and enjoy as much of the local flavors as possible, but I found myself eating at Olam a lot. It was just too good to be missed!"

    "I have now stayed twice at the Nautilus, once in the green season and once in the high season. I love this place. The ambiance is special, peaceful, and zen. The management is friendly, very approachable and helpful. The rooms are large, well appointed and comfy. They are like apartments with kitchens and living rooms. Everything's is spotlessly clean. The restaurant is beyond compare. I saw that they were written up in the New York Times food section! Open for breakfast, lunch and dinner. Everything is organic, healthy vegan/vegetarian fare and you can tell it was made with love! We did yoga twice a day most days and the classes were great. The yoga studio is above the restaurant with a wonderful ocean breeze to cool you off. We also had massages up there and that was a great experience! Just a quick walk to beach for surfing, swimming and to watch the sunset. A dip in the pool after dinner and the day is complete. The reception and the managers gave us lots of ideas for fun things to do,in the area and arranged everything for us. I can't think of anything I would change."

    "My family and I stayed at Nautilus Boutique Hotel for about two weeks. Rima and Pete are wonderful managers of the hotel. Olam Restaurant is an amazing vegetarian or vegan and restaurant. I'm not vegetarian but I absolutely loved their food. Beautiful hotel and just a short 100 meters of walk to some of the greatest sea!"

    "My wife and I enjoyed our stay at the Nautilus in January 2015. The food and service in their in-house restaurant were excellent. We especially appreciated the many vegetarian options. The hotel has a cozy feel with lots of plants and neatly clustered single story small buildings for rooms. Our room was spacious with a large bed, kitchenette, and large bath. We booked a duo massage which was completed on their yoga deck (above the restaurant) overlooking the ocean. We didn't drop into the daily yoga class but that is available. The hotel is well-located in Santa Teresa being just a short downhill walk to the beach and to the south the bakery (definitely worth a visit) and other restaurants in the more commercial section of the beach road. Overall Santa Teresa has a charming small surf town vibe and not over developed. If you are pressed for time in Costa Rica, taking a domestic flight into Tambor and short shuttle to the hotel is worth it. There is also a great sushi restaurant a short cab ride away north of hotel on beach road. Hotel also felt secure as there was a steel gate which was closed in the evenings."

    "This is my new spot without question. The vibe and styling of Nautilus is impeccable. The restaurant is beyond amazing- and totally healthy. The yoga studio and pool are epic! Secure and off the main road. Rima, the manager and her husband and such good wholesome people. Stay here for sure. Pura vida."

    "I highly recommend the Nautilus! Villas were nice, spacious, and clean. The food at Olam was delicious and healthy. Yoga in the jungle was amazing. The staff was very friendly and incredibly helpful throughout my stay. I had a number of flight issues traveling to Costa Rica (cancellations, delays, etc.) and Rima and the rest of the staff were there helping me along the way to figure out how to modify my travels accordingly once in Costa Rica. I also got something stuck in my foot running on the beach and they took me to the doctor to get it taken out. They were beyond wonderful! I cannot wait to come back!"

    "The place is everything you want on your surf holiday in Costa Rica: clean, nice architecture, yoga, organic food and smoothies, amazing staff, etc. etc. If I had to pick on downside that would be the lack of a sea view. But that does not matter so much as you are at the beach in two minutes."
