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!

My boyfriend and I stayed at Mother Dear in the beginning of August and we had an amazing time. I read all the reviews and thought there was no way one place could get "perfect" reviews. HOw could they not even get one bad review?! Well now I know why. It is exactly what we were looking for. Right on... More

This, the 2nd trip to Costa Rica, but 1st to Puerto Viejo. Jimmy & Debbie are gracious hosts and the property is darling. The location is just far enough from town to be quiet and secluded, yet close enough to walk in for shopping or eating. Walking the beach is wonderful. The cottage has everything you could need and the... More

This was our 3rd trip to Costa Rica, but our first to Puerto Viejo. We loved the laid back, Caribbean vibe of the area, the food, the natural beauty, the international blend of cultures and our stay at Mother Dear! Our hosts, Jimmy and Debbie, were like 2 long-time friends; welcoming, helpful, fun, interesting, yet respectful of our privacy. The... More

My wife and I spent 4 days at Mother Dear while on our honeymoon and fell in love with the property and hosts. The owners were always nearby when needed and were very helpful with resturant selections and ideas of things to see and do. We loved our daily 20 minute walk on the beach (which is mostly black sand)... More

Let me first start by saying the Jimmy and Debbie are the most wonderful people we could have ever dreamed to have met. This was our first trip to Costa Rica, and we were a little nervous. I had done several months of research leading up to our vacation and when you do in-depth research like I do you find... More
