Beautiful lodge/dorm cabins designed by the owner/architect.
Definitely the best deal in Santa Teresa. I stayed in the dorm cabin for 10 US per night, which is pretty much what all the other budget options charge. The difference is that you gain access to the same facilities as the more expensive cabins. The owners are an Argentinian architect who designed the place and his Czech wife. They take immaculate care of the place and are very helpful. Good time.

  the owner, emilio, is a real hard man to get along with, and some of the staff are a bit immature, as just about everyone would agree. the accommodations are nice, however. i stayed there for one and a half months.

  I've stayed at the Funky Monkey a few times. Definitely every time that I travel to St. Teresa I will be staying here! Everyone who works at the Funky Monkey Lodge are genuinely great people and make the experience amazing. I've spent many hours sitting by the pool relaxing or hanging out in the restaurant. Plus, being off the road a bit, but still steps to the beach, make this place great! I would recommend staying here if you are heading to Santa Teresa/Mal Pais! This place gets an A+ in my books!

  I loved the Funky Monkey. I came for two days with my boyfriend and we stayed for more than a week. The cabins are very chill and the pool is awesome. We had lots of fun, great people, good vibe.

  This place is awesome. They took in 16 of us and took care of us better than any luxury resort could have. Gabby, Emilio, Luciano, and Santo, you all rock. Thanks for such a great week. See you soon. —The Salt Lake Crew

  This was the seventh time I've stayed here. It's the best!!! The Funky Monkey is the greatest place you could possibly go to in Costa Rica. Gabby is a great cook and the food is great. The hotel is also close to the beach so it's convenient for surfing. I plan on coming back every year!!

  I stayed here for two weeks with my friend Brian in June of 2004. Emilio, Ben, Daniel, and Gabby made us feel like friends rather than guests. If you are a surfer it's perfect because there are hammocks of all types to chill out on after a good session. They make a mean breakfast. I stayed with awesome people from all over and enjoyed the beautiful beach and fun nightlife.

  Well, there's much to say — Gabi is an amazing hostess. She's right on point with service and she's also a terrific cook. You can also rent surfboards right on the premises. The Funky Monkey is worth every penny — there's a great vibe, all the huts are beautifully designed and it's located very close to the beach. I'm heading back here again, and again, and again for years to come. :)
