We have have been to Puerto Viejo 3 times in the last year and stayed at 4 different hotels. Exotica Lodge is great value for money especially as they offer the option of air conditioning for only $5 extra per night. The rooms are big and spacious and the grounds make it a nice environment to just hang out in.... More

The young woman working at Exotica (don't know her name) was the best part about the place. She spoke English very well and was able to get us an on-the-spot booking and then extend it later during the week. We loved the outdoor kitchen area but the wooden, backless stools were awful. Please get some cheap camp chairs with backs!.... More

Pros; Location- between the local beaches & en route to manzanilla beach (hire a bike) Helpful staff Privacy of kitchen area/garden Nice big beds No issues with safety as some reviews have questioned - it's 5 mins max to the heart of the town Cons: Kitchen not well equipped Hammock was dirty - felt horrid! Gardens= bugs so come prepared

We loved this place! It is a short, safe walk to town, but it has the privacy of a remote resort. The room is simple and basic with everything we need; the bathroom and shower are big with lots of counter/shelf space. I recommend asking for a room with a kitchen, because the kitchen is outside on the covered patio.... More

I have been in this hotel for three nights and we really loved it. There a so many loud and overpriced places in puerto viejo that we have been so happy to find this hotel: it is a bit outside of the center (approcimately 5 minutes to walk) and very quiet and clean. The stuff was really friendly and helpful.... More

This was the third place I stayed and thought it was great for the money. Like just about every place in Costa Rica you can't take the hot water sign seriously, but it was clean and comfortable with a hammock on the front porch plus tv and fridge. I would stay here again.

I have been traveling Costa Rica on an internship with a group of fellow scholars. We stayed at the Exotica Lodge for 2 nights. Lorenzo was very helpful and gave us plenty of information about restaurants, beaches, etc. They do have hot water; however, there is no filtration so you cannot drink the water. So we spent a lot of... More
