We stayed three days in the cabins and it was so pleasant. We felt safe and there was always someone on the premisis to help. Be sure to eat a few meals with Veronica and family. She is an excellent and very knowledgeable cook. I also took the cooking class which was great. These are rustic cabins but 100% serviceable.

I stayed at Veronicas Place for 3 nights and wouldn´t want to miss that experience! I would immediately go there again - just because of the atmosphere. But first some facts: location: the hotel is one street away from the main street and the beach. and about 7-10 min away from the busstation. At the hostel you can rent bikes... More

Stay with Veronica and her family you won't regret it! This truly is a family run place with each family member having the perfect job for them. The rooms are nice and you really feel like friends rather than visitors.

We loved Veronica and her family! They were friendly, welcoming and interesting people with a lot of thoughts and ideas to share. We very much agree with Veronica's values of healthy eating, keeping well and sustainable living. We attended her cooking class and cooked some delicious Caribbean style food - coconut rice + beans, plantain + oat patties, starfruit +... More

I stayed at Veronica's place with 2 friends in a small cottage with two rooms and one bathroom ( shared kitchen) for one month. I don't think we could have asked for a better location! Its right in Puerto Viejo so just a 5 minute walk to anything and everything. Veronica's place is very a peaceful relaxed family environment, as... More

My wife and I have traveled extensively in Costa Rica and have generally found the food to be plain at best. We first found Veronica four years ago at her previous location and had the best meal of our trip. When we went back to Puerto Viejo this past May we were sad to see that location closed, but were...

I recently took two of my children to Puerto Viejo and stayed in one of Veronica's cottages on her property. We had a lovely time. She and her family were very kind and knowledgeable and so willing to answer any questions we had. They are close to the beach and all that you need in town, at the same time... More

I stayed in this hostel, the one that is located under the restaurant. It is a great hostel for relaxing, my buddy and I personally cleaned up the backyard space, and added a fireplace. It is very safe, you can feel a great energy coming from the people that stay there. Veronica and Delroy, the owners just passed off this... More

The hostel is under the restaurant in town where the kitchen is tiny and private room has walls that dont reach close to the ceiling. Pretty noisy and cramped. The b&b is much nicer, on the outskirts of town in a quiet street. The cabanas are probably nice but our room inside the house was pretty average. The family, although... More
