My girlfriend and I recently stayed one night at Cabinas Guarana, and that was plenty. The hotel does offer a great atmosphere with Cabinas surrounded by lush plants and little front porches with hammocks and rocking chairs. Inside the rooms, however, quality is not as evident. The bottoms of my feet were soon black from walking on the dirty floor,... More

Short walk to the main street and beach area, but far away to provide safety and a quiet nights. Tons of restaurants within walking distance. ATMs nearby. Pharmacy and Grocery store close by as well. Front staff was extremely helpful and they also offer laundry service for ~$3/kg. The bedsheets could use some upgrade. Ventilation is decent. It can get... More

We had an excellent stay in Cabinas Guarana. It also serves to tell that I visited Puerto Viejo with a friend from San Jose whose first choice is always to stay at Guarana: He's been visiting Puerto Viejo for over 20 years. They fulfilled our last minute booking request with ease, our room was spacious, clean and quiet, but my... More

We stayed in a great cabina with a comfortable bed and our own hammock at the front, with decent ventilation. They have a kitchen for guest use, which we made use of. In addition they have lovely, helpful staff and are in a great location. Hotel Guarana is good value for money and we'd definitely stay again!

I have spent several nights on various occasions during the past years in this lovely hotel. The owners and the staff are very kind people. The decoration is nice (good Italian taste), rooms are comfortable and I could make use of the communal kitchen to make breakfast tea and coffee occasionally. I return here every year and also recommended the... More

We stayed here for 4 nights when we visited Puerto Viejo, it was a great stay. Location is ideal. Very quiet and you can get a good night's sleep! Kitchen is great, you get to cook your own meals. The supermarket is close by, right around the corner. The rooms were comfortable and clean. Definitely would recommend and would stay... More
