Very friendly and willing to help when I was sick, although at first they seemed very silent and came across as very unpersonal. Swimming pool is in need of some care, it's not very inviting. Room with A/C was excellent. The decor/furniture looks all hand made and adds a to the charm. Breakfast included and cannot be faulted, it was... More

We stumbled upon La Isla Inn on a bike ride down through Cocles. We had already made a reservation at a different place in Puerto Viejo but immediately rode there and back to change it. And boy we were glad we did! The staff and people at La Isla Inn were extremely friendly and accommodating - one of the owners... More

Remember, this is the Caribbean coast of Costa Rica, and if you don't mind a few rustic charms you will thoroughly enjoy staying here. Clean, friendly, pool, interesting rooms, nice outdoor dining area and laid back. But the great beach right across the street makes this a real gem. I looked at many hotels along the beach in Puerto Viejo,... More

La Isla Inn is a really nice small hotel. Cross the street and you are in the best beach ever: Puerto Viejo. The only tip for this place is try to get a room upstairs so you do not have to listen the steps of those staying upstairs. Anyway, you will see it: it is not a fancy place but... More

the hotel is more or less OK and it seems clean. It was very important for me to have Internet access but the Internet is not working most of the time and once working it is extremely slow. Service is nothing special - there seems to be a certain routing and things work in an unspectacular way. It was for... More

Petra and David made us at home instantly. We spent 6 days at La Isla Inn and loved it. The rooms are clean and comfortable. The food is amazing! You can't beat the location and prices. The only negative to the experience, not even a negative really, was that the jacuzzi was actually just a mini pool, no heat or... More

If you are planning a trip to Costa Rica, going to Puerto Viejo is a must. But prices are increasing and sadly the local tourism is being managed mostly by foreigners. This place is partly an example, but if one thing I can say is that they definitely work to help the local industry grow by the locals. The place... More

La Isla Inn is right across from Beach Break - the surfer's beach. It is a beautiful wooden structure with a warm comfortable feel. The current can be strong at Beach Break but La Isla Inn has a lovely pool you can enjoy. The owners are quite friendly and accommodating.

Petra really came thru for us when friends of ours had a guest staying with them at their home, who was a Vietnam Veteran having severe leg problems with infection. While we were staying with our friends, they had a situation where a renter/housesitter became very ill and had to be taken to the doctors. Our friends contacted Petra where... More
