I spent a fantastic holiday with my wife. It's a very good place to holiday and....to live as well. We really enjoyed our stay because of the idyllic beaches and landcaspes nearby. The hotel staff was also great. We'll return to Playa Negra very soon.

First of all, the hotel's staff is wonderful. Their service is outstanding. Rooms are nice decorated y very clean as well. After the excursions we did, we had a swim at the swimming pool. Everything is exotic and I really recommend it.

precious house. The big houses were pretty. Very well decorated. I enjoyed my holidays so much. Mariam´the owner is a great host. She invited us to a barbecue the last day of our holidays there. I also love the swimming pool. It has a gym in the garden. I love working at the gym near the frogs. Cheers.

Nice place to recover energies from the daily routine. It was my first there inCosta Rica and I received a good impression from both the country and the hotel. The staff people are very kind and I enjoyed the holidays with my girlfriend in a peaceful atmosphere.

The gardens are beautiful and I enjoyed looking in the frog pond each night for different frogs. The... More

A wonder in the middle of the nature. Magnificent house and garden and swimmingpool. The staff was very kind. I recommend it. Puerto Viejo's beaches were a great place for having fun as well as the leisure places. Great nightlife.
