We liked the location close to the ocean and to Puerto Viejo. However, the room was very dark, we had cucarachas everywhere (later on even in our bags and suitcases). Furthermore, the staff was not very helpful (e.g., recommendations for nearby things to do) and the breakfast was quite poor.

I loved that this spot was a 15-20 minute walk to the city of puerto viejo. It is a serene and peaceful hotel right on the water. The walk to town is along the water and insanely gorgeous. The staff was so kind and helpful. The rooms were pristine, beds were comfortable, and showers the perfect temperature. The fan in... More

I must admit that I was apprehensive about this hotel based on the other reviews. We arrived at night so we had to bump down a dark gravel road (off the paved highway) to get to the hotel, which was a little unnerving. But at the hotel we were met by the owner (Julian) who offered us a beer and... More

- Breakfast --> There is practically no breakfast, omelettes are, I don't know how to describe them. Rooms: Spatious, but the first night we arrived we had 20 dead flies lying around and when the "manager" showed us the room, a cockroach passed the floor and I was shocked. He killed saying "let me get that for ya" ...... We... More

We loved this place. The carefree, rustic and low key energy of the space and the staff was exactly what we needed in an "emergency" (because how much of an emergency can you have in CR?). On our honeymoon, a broken septic tank in our original hotel left us with nowhere to go in the Puerto Viejo area because it... More

To start with I grew up in Costa Rica and I know what "Cost Rican Rustic" is and this hotel is not that. The name is the first lie of this establishment, this is neither a hotel nor a resort. This is best described as a backpackers lodge or hostel. There is no restaurant, no bar, no food anywhere except... More

The rooms are traditional Costa Rican rustic and have a mountain lodge feel even though you are mere steps from warm Caribbean waters. The lady that was working the front desk was a wonderful help on anything we needed. We were well taken care of and each day had a fabulous fresh made breakfast in the open air dining. At... More
