Couldn't get more relaxed. After staying here for 6 nights, we felt ready for the next part of our adventure. The staff are super chilled out and friendly, it's always being cleaned by the cleaners and there is acommunalkitchenwhich helps for saving abut of cash. Cheers!

We rented the second floor apartment in the seperate building on the front right of the property for three nights. Very good price very close to the center of town. This property does cater to the counter-culture, so it's not for the family travelers or closed minded. That said, the apartment has a huge balcony with water view, kitchen, sitting... More

KIRKO, The owner of the most notorious place in town. Is a very cool guy. If your not happy with something, he will do what it takes to make you that way. No way will you leave the hotel without a life lasting memory!!!! You haven't lived until you've spent a night here! I spent almost a year. It's not... More

I stayed at the hotel puerto Viejo for 3 nights. It's super cheap, and a great value. Of course, since it's so cheap, the rooms are small and it can get quite hot and humid in there, but everything is clean and the common spaces are really nice. The decoration is awesome, the wifi works well, and the people are... More

We only stayed one night in Puerto Viejo and didn't feel like staying longer. Massive place full of small rooms. Not the cleaniest place on earth. Central location. Staff more helpful and friendlier in the morning, less in the evening. Aggresive stoned local friends of staff in bar is the main reason why we wouldn't come back.

Great place to stay. I stayed here with my mom and we had a room in the garden which was actually a small cabin with a porch, it was great. The room included a fan. The staff members were very friendly. The hotel provides a spacious kitchen, fridge and Wifi. The location is great too. Close to the beach, but... More

I was only in town for 2 nights on my way to Panama so I didnt look around a lot but I ended up staying in Hotel PV. It wasnt great. I upgraded to a larger room that had its own bathroom, which was bearable but it sounded like the family upstairs was always having a dance party. The kitchen... More

i just walked around the corner form the bus stop to this place. Rooms were cheap (about US$15 for a private room), some of the cheaper in the area. Beer is cold in their fridge and the kitchen is basic but serviceable for most travellers. Rooms are small but matresses were pretty comfy. Wifi was pretty good also. Very central... More

It's just a few blocks off the water, but that's a good thing. Great vibe, amazing structure - all wood, tons of differently coordinated rooms. Good wifi (in the right spots). The owner actually offered me the room right above the router - it was approaching the off season so there were many rooms available. It's a super close walk... More

I Was here with my friend in February 2014. We were staying in private room for bargain price. Everybody in the reception is really nice and helpful with everything that you need. In the reception you can also order shuttle for Bocas del Toro, Panama, for only $25 (one way). Room was clean, there was always hot water in the... More
