We stayed here for a couple of nights and really enjoyed our stay. The rooms are very clean, the communal area was great and they even had a kitchen that could be used by guests and also free drinking water. The location of the cabanas is perfect and the staff were lovely and very helpful. I also left something at... More

We stayed here for 6 nights at the beginning of November. Everything about this hotel was pretty good, the rooms were clean, not to far away from everything and you had your own little patio. But the terrible customer service out weighs all of the positives of this place! During the whole week we stayed here we were ignored by... More

Horrible is not enough to describe your behavior, not even as a guest, because who posted this review,was never our guest. You were found extremely drunk in your friends room, the real guests, with your girlfriend, totally drunken too. It was 1.40-1.50 am. I had to implore twice to get some , not even silence, reasonable volume, the third time... More

We stayed here for three nights. It was really affordable, staff were friendly and rooms had all you need. The communal kitchen was really great. Awesome location in Puerto Viejo with everything nearby, supermarkets etc. Being wet season, the mosquitos were pretty bad but the room had mosquito nets on the beds, which was a great relief.

When the original hotel accidentally forgot to tell me that they converted the private rooms to hostel rooms I was frantic. There I was in another country with no where to stay. So thankfully I looked online and found this place. I walked over and it was love at first sight. Beautiful front gates, lobby, garden area. I begged them... More

We stayed at Guarana for 3 nights and loved it. I had the best sleep so far out of our 3 months in Central America. The rooms are really breezy with the open air design and the fans kept us nice and cool at night. The kitchen was fully stocked and accessible to everyone. I thought because it was more... More

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.
