This is my 6th trip down to Pavones, Costa Rica, which is far down on the Panama border and sits along the Gulfo Dulce. I really enjoy staying at the Riviera. The grounds are beautiful, there are banana, star fruit, pineapple, mango, and other fruit trees (I know, pineapples are not on a tree... more like a bush.... sort of).... More

We stayed in the smallest cabina, farthest from the road. It has two beds, but comfortably only sleeps 2 people. It would probably be too cramped for 3 people. It is tiny, but has a spacious covered patio, and a private outdoor shower. The grounds are beautiful! It is a about a 5 minute walk from the ocean. I highly... More

We did not plan on staying Pavones, but after the long trip there, we decided to stay. We stumbled upon riviera after a local told us it was the nicest place in Pavones. He was right. We stayed in the most beautiful casita with this great tiled patio that we spent most of our time sitting on. Not only was... More

I went to Pavones on a surf trip with my boyfriend. We had the Cabina nearest to the road. There was a gate that closed off the property at night. The cabina accommodated up to 6 people so it was really spacious. It had a full kitchen so we cooked almost every day. The location was great- a 5 minute... More

This past summer I made my 5th trip to Costa Rica, and this was my 4th stay at the Pavones Riviera. Shawn and Jamie (the owners) are extremely nice, and they took care of all of my needs. The Riviera is clean, and it is in an excellent location... very easy access to the few resturants in town, the grocery... More

I have been to Costa Rica 5 times, four of those times I went to Pavones, and all four of those times I stayed at the Riviera. The property it sits on is beautiful. Extremely well landscaped, with fruit trees, clover beds, nice trees, etc. This place is very secluded, safe, quiet, and peaceful. The rooms are large, have A/C,... More

We had a great couple of days in our little villa in Pavones, a sleepy little surfing town down by the Panamanian border. In fact we extended our stay by a day because we loved it so much. Our little one room cabina was simple, clean and charming. A little kitchenette was stocked with basics and The Riviera provided you... More
