I stayed there with my family (mother, father and sister) for 2 nights and we were very please. It is not only a nice little property but it is also super clean and the staff is friendly, especially the Italian owner!

Going around Costa Rica i have stayed in everything from cheap and actually bad to incredible 5* hotels. Truth is that few things turn out to be important. The owner/manager Space in the room Normal bed Normal shower/bathroom All are excellent. Thank you Andrea! Great advice every day.

We stayed in Cabinas Guarana for two nights. It was our first destination. Loved the Caribbean feel of Puerto Viejo. Laid back staff at the hotel makes you even more relaxed. Cabins are very comfortable, bathroom works just fine. Every cabin has a hammock and a rocking chair. I loved staying on a veranda in the evening. Wifi is very... More

Rooms: they are great - hot water, nicely decorated, nice lighting, mosquito nets, quiet, cool, fan, safe, very clean (and cleaned daily). Pillows are very hard - that though is the only bad thing. Terrace: my terrace and... More

What a great place to enjoy all the best of Costa Rica ! First of all, Puerto Viejo is one of the most beautiful place in the country (beaches, atmosphere, food and wildlife), and then, Cabinas Guarana is probably the best place in town if you want to experience the Italien hospitality, the tranquility, the "luxury" of having your own...

This is the second time we have stayed at Cabinas Guarana,clean rooms, all staff are very friendly and helpful. I would definitely recommend this hotel to family and friends. The hotel is very secure,the rooms are private with your own patio supplied with a hammock. Communal kitchen so you can cook your own meals.

Great stay at Cabinas Guarana for 2 nights. The hotel is about a block from the main road with restaurants, ATM, stores, and grocery. Staff was helpful and the room was clean and complete with bed nets for the mosquitoes. We rented bikes through the hotel for $5 a day. The road to neighboring beaches is flat and biking is... More
