Let us introduce ourselves. We are Alessia and Stefano, an italian couple that came in Costa Rica in 2000, fell in love with it and never left again. After a few years in the North Pacific area, we moved to Santa Teresa in 2004 and started our own project, Raratonga Hotel & Apartments in Playa Santa Teresa, Costa Rica. Since then we dedicate our time to create a home away from home for our guests.
We Love: the beach, the nature, the ocean, sunrises and sunsets, healthy food, travelling, yoga , dogs, cats and all animals. We live on the ground so you will see us often around and in the reception, with our baby girl Emma.
Part of our team are also Lucy at the reception and tourdesk and our maid Giselle. A dedicated team to highlight your experience in our lodge in Playa Santa Teresa . Reception is open from 8 am to 6 pm every day plus we are available for assistance anytime. On Sundays reception is open on call.
