We had a great time with owner Francesco staying at Vista Verde. The place is clean, wonderfully set up, and has a really nice staff that was super helpful and kindhearted. We Extended our stay by a week based almost entirely on how great it was to hang out at Vista Verde. There are lots of hammocks to lounge in,... More

Stayed here in March after reading all the positive reviews on here. We were very disappointed. Our cabin was a tiny shack with gaping holes letting in the hundreds of mosquitoes which plague the place. The bed had a mosquito net with holes in it that was too small, so you couldn't help having your legs and arms touch the... More

We enjoyed our stay here. The room was a good size, and the patio was amazing with all of the hammocks. It is on a great piece of property, and the staff member, Gift, was very nice. The location was also great--easy to get to town and the beach. The price was very reasonable. There was drinking water available, and... More

We have been traveling for a few weeks now;this is the best one so far! Such a comfortable atmosphere, staff are so helpful and friendly! Two sloths hang out in the back yard!! One that we nicknamed buster (the grey one) even came out of the tree for a visit! While the white sloth (now nicknamed booboo!) just hung out... More

I'm having trouble finding words to describe the magnificent beauty of Vista Verde. We stayed in the master bedroom which had plenty of space as well as the spacious room next to the big room. The rooms were clean and tidy and the bathrooms were always nice and clean. The lady who checked us in and ran the day shift... More

We booked to stay here based on the great reviews. However, we never actually spent the night after being shown to what only can be described as a shoebox! A double bed touching 3 out of the 4 wallls meant that if we both wanted to be in the room at the same time then our bags had to be... More

We had an awesome time staying at Vista Verde. It is basically in downtown Puerto Viejo but since it is set back from the main street you get a nice break from the loud hustle and bustle that sometimes can go on late into the night. The property was very lush and beautiful with tropical plants growing everywhere. The staff... More

Had a lovely relaxing time staying at this place over New Year - it was a quiet haven away from the NY festivities! Good kitchen facilities and outdoor sheltered common area with hammocks. Our room was very comfortable and private. The atmosphere with staff and guests was very relaxed. Recommend it.

It was great here. We were the only people there when we stayed and it was nice and quiet. The wifi wasn't working but that's OK. There was a sloth kicking it on the property and was a nice treat. The owner let us borrow his bikes for free.

Vista Verde is the nicest place I've ever stayed at by far. It's pure and natural combined with all the luxuries that you could wish for to make it your home, like a lovely kitchen and free wifi. Francesco, the owner, is a fascinating man who has a lot of passion for what he does and has created a relaxed... More
