We had the best room on the first floor, it was spacious with big windows and great view into the green garden, hammocks on the veranda outside, very chilled and relaxed. The best thing on staying in Vista Verde though is the nice Italian owner Francesco who will help you with anything you need and amazing Italian cook Egidio who... More

We came here after staying at an awful place in town. It was so nice coming to such a peaceful tranquil place after our bad experience. We stayed in a room upstairs which was HUGE and very open and airy. My boyfriend and I both loved it. It was also very clean, infact the whole place was spotless. The showers... More

I stayed at Vista Verde for 2 nights. The location is great, it's very quiet and beautifully green with lots of plants around it and plenty of hammocks to enjoy the view. There is a kitchen which seems to be equipped alright (didn't actually use it). However, the rooms were a bit too basic and not quite clean enough for... More

We stayed here for 3 nights. The German owners, Olaf and Kathy are very friendly. Very clean, relaxing, safe. It's cozy, so there are not so many people, which was perfect for us. Hot shower. Very close to everything. No internet. We used the kitchen a couple of times, everything is very organized. If we go back to Puerto Viejo,... More

Our stay in Hospedaje Vista Verde was one of the highlights of our trip. Charming place, very friendly and helpful owners. The rooms were basic but very clean. Lovely building and the kitchen/dinning room area was perfect for a relaxing dinner surrounded by vegetation and wildlife. I would deffinetly recommned it!

Looking for a great hostel in PV? This is it! Excellent facilities, kind hosts, abundant wildlife, quiet, excellent location, and the price is right! Olaf and Katy made us feel like family. We loved chilling in the hammocks, watching the frogs, butterflies, and honey bears, and joking around with Olaf!

Puerto Viejo is a really great beach resort but can feel a little dangerous and sketchy at times; Vista Verde is a great option if you want some where safe, clean and welcoming. The German owners were very kind and helpful, we were staying at Puerto Viejo for a birthday weekend and the owners even brought my friend a birthday... More

我们非常庆幸选择了这家客栈。主人是一对来自德国的夫妇,房间非常整洁,每天都会专门整理。虽然距离小镇中心需要步行几分钟,但是这个位置非常安静,并且附近的餐馆和超市也都不错,而且客栈提供厨房还可以做饭。最特别的是这个客栈的花园很好,面积非常大,每天可以看到很多不同的动物,松鼠、蝴蝶与特别的鸟类,甚至每天可以看到绿黑相间皮肤的青蛙。 We're very glad and lucky to choose the hotel in Puerto Viejo. Clean room, quiet place and useful kitchen. The garden is very special and wonderful. We saw many birds, butterfly, squirrel and green-black frogs.

The location is perfect for being close enough to town with walking & biking convenience to everything you need, but also feels serene and private in its quiet garden setting, set further off the main road. Olaf & Kathy were very welcoming and made us comfortable the whole time.They were always available when we needed to ask a question and... More
