A three night stay at Physis was the last leg of our journey through Costa Rica, and it truly was a perfect ending. Jeremy and Emily are amazing hosts, and their property is an amazing place to stay. It was a short walk to the beach, and to some very good restaurants. The room was very clean, and very comfortable.... More

Where to begin. Staying at Physis was magical. We loved the space, the location, the attention to detail in our room, the fabulous breakfasts and most of all we were blown away by how helpful Emily and Jeremy were in planning whatever excursions we were interested in. They are so passionate about the area and their hotel. It is their... More

Loved our stay at Physis. The beautiful outdoor spaces made us want to hang out and relax with our friends and other guests, read or nap in hammocks, and enjoy the garden. Our exceptionally clean and nicely decorated room was spacious and very comfortable, with a lovely toilet and shower area, fan and A/C, TV, and safe. Owners Emily and... More

I booked this B&B last minute after reading the incredible reviews from previous guests. Not only did it not disappoint, none of the reviews really captured how truly incredible this property is. Emily and Jeremy are so welcoming and made the check in process quick and fun. We were greeted with a welcome drink (the best beverage I ate drank... More

One could argue that this B&B with its neat appearance and great attention to detail is somewhat out of place at the Southern Carribean coast of Costa Rica - where a lot of places seem tobe fighting a constant - and mostly losing - battle against climate and slow decay. Here, Physis Guesthouse sets a bold counterpoint. With a fairly... More

After reading the other reviews, there is not much to add! My friend and I took our Christmas break in Costa Rica, and my friend made all the arrangements. Her choice was excellent, our 5 days at Physis were a real getaway. The guesthouse is indeed a beautiful place, well designed and decorated, very well cared for, simple and yet... More

Physis is really a great place to stay if you are planning a trip to Puerto Viejo. Emily and Jeremy are the nicest people and will go out of their way to make sure everything is taken care of each day. They really felt like friends we knew for a long time. The rooms are decorated very tastefully and the... More

Where do I start when writing a review of Jeremy and Emily and Physis B&B..... My boyfriend planned our trip .... so when he gave me a birthday card with our itinerary....I was so excited about going to Physis. I have been told that Emily helped Mario plan all our interbuses throughout our trip and recommended a lovely hotel to... More
