Gorgeous, quiet place, centrally located in the heart of Santa Teresa. Only 2 minutes walk to the beach. Very clean and comfortable rooms. AND lovely, very friendly owners - thanks Melanie and Fred for making our stay unforgettable!

The place was in a great location, close to the beach and grocery store. They helped us with all of our needs. The bikes were a great feature and really helped us get around. The rooms are also very quiet at night, which we didn't appreciate before staying a few nights at another place without the same level of sound proofing. Overall would recommend.

Room was clean, bed was comfortable, and the shower pressure was great. The owners are nice enough but the place needs work. First, the individual rooms are guarded only by sliding patio doors, with chintzy locks that are literally falling apart. I'm pretty sure I could've broken into my room with one hand and a rusty screwdriver. Second, the air conditioning is very weak. Every hostel, AirBnB, and hotel in Costa Rica has the same A/C unit, so you come to expect a certain flow. I don’t know about the other rooms, but mine was definitely struggling. Finally, the internet. It’s so slow it’s not even worth getting online. I tried to do some minimal email / travel planning stuff on two different days, in different locations around the hostel, but even sitting directly under the router I got nothing. If you don’t care about the above, you’ll be fine. But if you like security, decent A/C, and getting online- look elsewhere.

Response from Melanie:
Thank you for your review. We do have sliding doors in order to have a lot of lights in the room and we never had any issued with it as we always show our guest how to lock them well during check in, the hotel also have a locked front gate and cameras for security. Regarding A/C unit, we always recommend our guests to close the bathroom door and the main sliding door in order to get the room cold, otherwise all the flow cold air is going outside (by the mosquito net opened bathroom window) and you feel that A/C is not working. And finally regarding the internet I never had any complaint before, I know some people are doing some streaming and are happy with it. But I know also if all my guests are connected in the same time yes internet can be slow. But I will check again with my technician in case we have some other technical issues to make sure it s working well for the next guests. Thank you for taking time to write the review and we hope to see you again in Santa Teresa. Cheers, Melanie

Perfection! Melanie's rooms are clean and cozy; hands down the BEST shower I had during my travels on the Nicoya Peninsula. The kitchen and garden are relaxing spots to enjoy morning coffee. Walking distance from all shops, restaurants and beaches. Melanie also arranged a taxi to the Tambor Airport for me on my final day, such a helpful and gracious host! Thank you Melanie!

Meli Melo was a great place with a good location close to the beach and restaurants/shops. The room was clean, nice, and comfortable. Melanie is very friendly and personable. She knows each person staying there and takes the time to talk with each guest.

The Meli Melo hotel is a perfect spot to stay in Santa Teresa. It is just as pictured, with hammocks and everything. The communal kitchen is nice, the a/c in the rooms is great, and the showers always ran hot. There are challenges with water and power in that area, but the Melanie always made sure things were sorted quickly. She was a very good host, greeting us on arrival and seeing us off. The place is just as promised, and a great value to be so close to the beach. There was coffee every morning too. We really also enjoyed meeting and hanging out with other travelers in the communal kitchen. We would stay here again, easily.
