Jimmy and Debbie are the most gracious hosts. Thoughtful and helpful, they were available to answer any questions but also valued our privacy. Mother Dear is simply beautiful. This was the first place we stayed on our honeymoon and the only place we will absolutely stay in again. We woke up with the sun every morning, sipped our coffee while... More

Everything about Mother Dear is perfect... the location... the view... the accommodations and most importantly the hosts Jimmy and Debbie! Jimmy and Debbie made us feel like invited guests from the moment we introduced ourselves. They were there with helpful advise when you needed them and we never felt that we lacked privacy. We loved the sound of the waves... More

I don't normally feel it's necessary to review the places I go, however Mother Dear is a small private establishment run by an amazing couple who rely almost entirely on word of mouth to rent out the 2 cabins on their property. The pictures here on Tripadvisor appear almost too good to be true, but in fact hardly do it... More

What can I say about Mother Dear that hasn't already been said? Beauty, privacy, relaxation - it's basically perfect. Jimmy and Debbie are wonderful hosts - you never see them unless you need them, in which case they're very easy to find and very helpful. We stayed five nights and have rarely been so relaxed in our lives. We were... More

My husband and I spent the ladder part of out honeymoon at Mother Dear and it was better than we could have imagined! James and Debbie were so nice and friendly by helping us make reservations, arrange transportation, and offering suggestions and advice. The cottage itself was very clean with great views of the beach and it gave us plenty... More

Not sure what I can add that others haven't said already! My wife and I were here for a week for our honeymoon. It was even better, more beautiful, and more comfortable than advertised. I cannot recommend this place enough. We will make this place a priority if we go back to Costa Rica and would plan a trip around... More

My husband and I were lucky enough to stay at Mother Dear for three days in August. The cottages are beautiful, very comfortable, and designed just right to catch the breeze, frame a perfect view of the beach, and give you lots of privacy. The beach is clean and stretches for miles. Puerto Viejo is laid back and funky. And,... More

We really enjoyed our stay at Mother Dear Ocean Cottage. The cottage is perfectly equiped and the hosts Debbie and Jimmy are really kind. We spend four days there and we loved the beautiful view of the ocean from the balcony and almost the whole cottage. We definitely want to come back!

My wife and I stayed at Mother Dear for a week recently and had an excellent visit! Jimmy and Debbie are wonderful hosts and the cottages are absolutely great (complete with a perfect view of the ocean and Playa Negra). We would recommend Mother Dear to anyone visiting the Puerto Viejo area!
