Meli Melo was the most awesome little hotel in Santa Teresa. It is centrally located next to the coolest restaurants, yoga, shops and bars. The rooms are very clean and comfortable and everybody was so welcoming. I would definitely recommend it. We wish we could have stayed there forever! L'hotel Meli Melo est l'un des hotels les plus mignons et comfortables que l'on ait visité. L'emplacement est parfait, en face de la plage et tout pres des restaurants, studios de yoga et bars de la ville. Melanie et sa famille etaient tres acceuillantes. On aurait aimé y rester plus longtemps!

This place is close to everything. Modern, clean, and spacious rooms made the stay perfect. Lots of great food options nearby, and the beach is just a very short walk away. The best sun sets!

I highly recommend Meli's place to anybody looking for lodging in Sta Teresa! Its location is PRIME, across the street from the beach and in the middle of everything. Meli is very responsive and professional. She has also done a wonderful job of landscaping her area. We enjoyed our own private patio chats and falling asleep in the hammock. Additionally the other guests staying at her property were all so great. A+++ for Meli will return soon!

Hotel Meli Melo is simply beautiful, as soon as you walk in you feel that you truly are in paradise. Located about a 4 minute walk from the beach, this gem has everything you need to relax in Santa Teresa. All rooms, from what I noticed, have their own hammock right outside the door, and the rooms are in excellent condition. There's a kitchen and fridge for guests to use, which is very clean, and an area where guests can read and hang out. Melanie is a great host, she makes herself readily available, she suggested a fabulous restaurant as well as beautiful must-see beaches. Strong wi-fi and family friendly. Thanks so much Meli, hope to come back soon!!

Great location, very conveniently located near stores, surf shops, path the beach and the supermarket. The rooms were nice and clean and spacious with a neat little private patio Our only negatives were lack of pots and study cookwear in the kitchen and the bikes kept braking down on us (chain fell over many many times) on our ride to Mal País. Overall, we enjoyed our stay.
