House Rules
Check in is anytime after 2PM

Griss Lodge is a family-friendly hotel. Most of our guests are surfers, and we like to keep a very relaxed atmosphere here.

We ask our guests not to make a lot of noise early in the morning or late at night.
The swimming pool is open between 8 am and 10 pm.
If you wish to use the barbecue area, all you have to do is ask us, so we can reserve a slot for you. We ask our guests to pretty please clean the barbecue area after themselves.

Please, no smoking in the house.
Also, we ask our guests to turn off AC, light and fans whenever they leave the house, and to turn on the AC only after closing all doors and windows.

We have 3 dogs and 1 cat. If you have a small pet that you wish to bring along, it is also welcome here.

Griss is absolutely beautiful. Not only is the staff absurdly helpful, but they're also completely welcoming and kind. I would stay at Griss again in a heartbeat. In terms of location, Griss is right where all of the action is in Santa Teresa, but just far enough up a side road to be quite and relaxing. The beach is less than 5 minutes walking and there are a bunch of great restaurants within the same distance. Griss also offers a nice selection of food and fresh smoothies on location. The staff was kind enough to help us with taxis whenever needed and also helped to arrange a flight to San Jose for us (which was an amazing flight!). I would recommend this location to a wide audience - from families with kids to a couple on honeymoon. Thank you again to the staff at Griss for making us right at home.

Our stay in the Griss cabin for our honeymoon was an amazing experience. The hosts were always available and accommodating. The cabin itself was very clean and rustic. We found it easy to cook in and very relaxing after full days spent hiking or on the beach. I would highly recommend to anyone looking for rustic accommodations, with the little luxuries. It was right in the heart of the Santa Teresa main drag, and was a cut above any of the surf shacks I observed.

The house I stayed in is not as light and airy as it appears on the pictures, but apart from that it was perfect. The hosts were all very friendly and so obliging I literally couldn't think of anything more I needed to ask for. The location is spot on for surfing; walking distance to the best part of the beach for it, and crawling distance from the local night club if you're into that kinda thing, but far enough away from hustle and bustle of the busiest part of town. Really enjoyed my time here. Would recommend. :)

Nice place in great location. The houses have a great jungle bungalow feel to them. The owners/staff were very nice and easily accessible. Always around to help us with whatever we needed. About a 2 minute walk to the beach. Walking distance to lots of restaurants in Santa Teresa, although the owners did help us rent an ATV for our time there, which makes getting around super easy. Would definitely stay here again.

Very spacious with lots of room for extra guests. Great location to beach and restaurants, would defiantly stay again. We loved the pool at night and relaxing in the hammock. Very unique spot.

We are four Italian friends (Selma, Gabriele, Simona and Riki) who moved to Santa Teresa 8 years ago. We built Griss to be the kind of place where we would ourselves love to stay.

The hotel has 6 apartments and 2 bedrooms. All apartments are equipped with small kitchens. The two bedrooms share a kitchen as well.
We are very proud of our garden, with hammocks in shaded spots, a swimming pool and a brand new outdoor jacuzzi. We also have a barbecue area for our guests.

Many of our guests come here for the amazing surf. Waves in Santa Teresa are consistent all year round. We are all surfers, and that is part of the appeal of this place for us.
If you are not a surfer, you can still have an amazing time here. The place is very lush and clean, with lots of wildlife around us.

Santa Teresa has a small town feeling, but still has many lovely restaurants and shops. There are many other fun activities to be done around here, such as horseback riding, yoga, canopies, trips to nature reserves, fishing, or simply walking on our stunning beach. Sunsets here can be incredibly beautiful and are an attraction in themselves.

Do drop us a few lines if you have any questions.
