This place was recommended by some friends and I couldn't be happier I decided to go there! I spent my 25th birthday here and it was the perfect place to unwind, relax and detox after months of travel! For Costa Rica it was really reasonably priced for the mini retreats, where you can choose 4 or 7 nights and get...

Start the day with a surf, yoga or walk on the beach, followed by a delicious breakfast and coffee. Julio, Mariano, and all staff are helpful and kind. Affordable, comfortable and very clean. Becoming popular with travelers from all over the world and for good reason! Sunsets are spectacular. Great return visit after 4 years away :)

Cass Zen is a hidden gem! My friend and I stayed a week. For $250 US dollars each, we were able to thoroughly relax and find our Zen at a very affordable price. The 7 days included unlimited yoga classes (which were incredible - great instructors!), breakfast, private room with two fans, access to an outdoor kitchen, wifi, reading area,...

Went here for yoga classes during my stay in Santa Teresa. They were the cheapest ones i could find $9 a class if you just dropped in, you could also buy 6 classes for $45 or something like that. Real nice setting and great, fun teachers. Yoga is everywhere in Santa Teresa but it is expensive, this is your cheaper...

Great place to go with friends, family, couple or alone. Perfect if you enjoy quiet and calm environments. Santa Teresa is a place with a lot of things and activities to do. I personally enjoy going out, but coming back to sleep to quiet place. Casa Zen makes it happen! PLUS! The yoga classes are AMAZING! Breakfast is the best...

Nice place but to be zen you need the people to be zen. The reception staff was either incompetent, rude or simply not warm. Somehow, the client mirrored the staff, it has been difficult for me to meet people. The dime light and disposition of the lounge makes it difficult for interaction. Fridge door was broken, and kitchen don t...

The atmosphere is very relaxing and quiet, a few meters from the beach. The room are clean and comfortable. The only thing that is missing is the hot water. I paid 56 dollar for a double room with shared bathroom

We had booked 5 nights in this hostel. Our flight was cancelled from Havanna which made us arrive 4 nights later, but as we had e-mail contact they sorted everything out so that we had the same room. The personnel were nice, but not too chatty. The place was clean, they clean everyday. The toilets and showers were really clean...

I stayed for one week and really enjoyed my stay at Casa Zen. As many other reviews mention, the staff really let this place down. Especially as I haven't traveled solo in a while, friendly staff can really make you feel at home but this was totally missing from Casa Zen. Even other businesses in town had commented on their...

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Santa Teresa and Mal Pais are rather remote beach towns, and that is what makes them so special! Thankfully, even though we are a little off the beaten path, there are still quite a few services available to visitors. This is a excellent area to relax practicing of Yoga and Surf.On the first floor, we have six private rooms, ideal for single travelers, couples or pairs of friends. The rooms have either a double bed or two single beds. We also have two larger private rooms on the first floor, each with beds for three people. Scroll down for photos and prices for our private rooms. Upstairs you will find the apartment plus three additional rooms with varying capacities, featuring exterior doors as well as interior doors connecting to the apartment. An abundance of shared bathrooms are also located on the first floor (there are many to choose from and they are always clean!).We also have two well-equipped communal kitchens, including our signature chef’s kitchen, complete with a professional quality stove, microwave, blenders, and a giant stainless steel refrigerator. We offer a amazing Yoga deck with every day class. Our helpful, bilingual staff is always ready to help plan other tours and activities in the area, including surf lessons, canopy tours, stand up paddleboarding (SUP), visits to nearby waterfalls, fishing, sailing, snorkeling, horseback riding, ATV rentals and more. We can also assist you with restaurant recommendations, reservations and travel planning, so your trip can be totally relaxing and worry-free! ... more   less
