Emily and Jeremy have created such a gem of a property. Anyone visiting this part of the country can expect 5-star service, a comfortable bed and beautiful room and common area. They are eager to share their knowledge of the area, providing money-saving tips for services and restaurants, and concierge services for activities in the area. They also have bikes... More

This place is wonderful and so are the hosts! Emily and Jeremy greeted us with a welcome drink ), discussed our interests and suggested wonderful tours of the area. We especially loved the day tour to visit the BriBri tribe (Talamanca) to visit two families and learn about their culture, their traditional medicines and their food. Physis is located just... More

For some reason when I booked this Bed and Breakfast in Puerto Viiejo some months ago, just for one night before we went on to another hotel for my daughter's wedding, I was not overwhelmed with anticipation... So what a wonderful surprise when I re-read a few reviews before we left the UK for our visit to CR. But the... More

What a gem! This B&B is tucked away in the thicket, but is an absolute oasis. A 5 minute cab ride from the PV city center, but if you're up for it, walk into town. Puerto Viejo just screams beach town and has a really laid back vibe. If I could, I would hide away in this town and live... More

Physis was a wonderful B&B just outside of Puerto Viejo, CR. Beautiful wood work and gardens and it was very clean! The care takers/managers (Kelly and Elizabeth) were friendly and very helpful! The beach was a short walk across the road. Or you could rent a bike and ride all the way to Manzanilla (about 12k) and stop at any... More

Out of the 6 different stops we made in CR Physis was by far our favourite accommodation. From the moment we arrived to the 3rd night when we left, Elizabeth and Kelly felt more like old friends than anything. We felt at every step they were going above and beyond to ensure we had the best possible experience. The charming... More

This is by far the most beautiful B&B to stay in the area - cosy, homely, great hosts and an excellent location. Elizabeth and Kelly made it feel like home from the moment we arrived and were offered a welcome cocktail even before we had put our bags down! We didn't want to leave, and can't wait to return.

This was my favourite hotel in Costa Rica. The owners were out of town but had arranged for a befriended couple to take care of the B&B. They had chosen well, we were taken care of very well. From the welcome cocktail to arranging trips to providing bikes to making a fantastic breakfast - it was just lovely! The B&B... More
