A friend and I recently traveled many parts of Costa Rica. We stumbled upon Physis online and because of the good reviews, we gave it a shot. The owners Emily and Jeremy were not there at the time, and the hotel was being run by their relatives, TT and Don. They were extremely helpful and knowledgable about the area and... More

Yet again we have had a wonderful time while at Physis Caribbean B&B. We always feel so comfortable there and the hosts make us feel as if we are part of the family! They always make just the right suggestions for restaurants in the area and have very good advice on which tours are the very best. We love spending... More

You would seriously be LOCA to stay anywhere else! But really. Before I had even stepped foot in the country, Emily was putting any concerns I had, at ease. This was be my first time traveling solo, as a female, outside of the country and she answered all of questions so quickly via email! Whether recommending what tour to do,... More

Sure... You can book any other Hotel in town and you will have some good days in the caribbean. But only at Physis you're going to have a phantastic-once-in-a-lifetime-extra-pura-vida experience! We spent two weeks there and got one of the best treatments in a B&B ever! The whole building is full of plants, paintings and chill-out areas. The breakfast ist... More

WOW! What an amazing place. Physis is tucked away in a very quiet, picturesque and extremely safe area of Puerto Viejo, called Cocles. You are an easy 5 min. walk to some of the most beautiful beaches this world has to offer. Your hosts Jeremy and Emily are gracious hosts that make your needs a priority. I highly recommend the...

Emily and Jeremy have a terrific formula for their guests satisfaction. These innkeepers are most amiable, helpful and thorough. No detail is beyond their focus. No effort is spared to arrange the most interesting of activities on this most interesting and beautiful coast. We used the cable locks to bind our bikes to a tree at Punta Uva, miles from... More

My boyfriend Paul and I stayed at Physis for 9 nights and our experience couldn't have been better. We couldnt get over how accommodating and welcoming Emily and Jeremy were. They truly made our vacation memorable from helping us schedule our transportation to recommending AMAZING restaurants and activities. Physis is PERFECTLY located. Not only is it on a quiet peaceful... More

I would highly recommend this place because, (a) the rooms are excellent, mosquito free, and air-conditioned, (b) the people running the place are caring and great, and (c) Jeremy, the owner, makes killer cocktails. Next time I'm in the area, definitely my place of choice.
