My sister held her wedding here last week and the hotel was poor, most of the staff were not welcoming, they didn't even provide water or open the bar! We stayed in the Cabins which were average and dingy. Jess was the only staff member who cared, and she bent over backwards for us despite being heavily pregnant! Breakfast was... More

We stayed here two nights. When we got there, we met Olga, who works the reception during the day. As others have noted, she is fantastic. She set us up in room 5, which has a patio that has a great view of the beach. That was so nice. The room itself was fine. The sheets on the bed felt... More

Stayed there our first night in Puerto Viejo..booked room through priceline. Way too expensive for what you get...rooms look like they haven't been updated since the 70s and the buffet breakfast, while nice, was not enough to keep us there. We thought the hotel was in town but were told that we needed to take taxis in to eat, go... More

We felt the most comfortable at the La Perla Negra. They had a huge magnificent breakfast buffet included in the price of the hotel stay. Everyone was warm and inviting. Their smiles were contagious. The rooms were large with high ceilings. From our room we could hear, relaxing soothing sounds of the ocean. We enjoyed sipping wine while watching the... More

Best beach view in Costa Rica. Great staff. Big rooms that are clean but a little outdated. Olga helped us out the whole time we were there. Set us up with several tours. Every restaurant recommendation was spot on. The breeze from the beach made sleeping wonderful. We were there for a full week and loved every second. If you... More

Moved to this hotel from another property that claimed to be close to the beach but was anything but. We found La Perla Negra on the internet and drove over to check it out. The first thing you see is one of the best beaches anywhere around that area. The hotel itself is typical for Puerto Viejo. We stayed in... More

After leaving another hotel after one night, we (2 couples) were looking for a place to stay. We drove to La Perla Negra, were greeted warmly and offered a choice of accommodations. Due to a prior reservation, we had to be moved to another room midway through our stay. We knew this in advance, so it was no big deal.... More

For being in the middle of the jungle, I was able to sit at the pool and listen to the waves crash. The staff was amazing, Olga from the second we arrived until the very last night she gave us great advice of what to do and where to eat. She never pointed us in the wrong direction!

It´s a pretty good hotel for the price, everybody is pretty friendly and breakfast is delicious, they even got great coffee. They serve a killer rice and beans breakfast with authentic flavor. Although parking may be difficult when the hotel is full, it doesn´t take away the quality of the service. All beaches and the main town are near. The... More

The place is spacious, clean, has terrific ocean views and a comfortable porch looking out to the ocean with a dining room table and chairs.They provided great help in terms of guest services.

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
La Perla Negra Hotel is located in the popular but quaint village of Puerto Viejo on Costa Rica´s Caribbean coast. Geographically, we are located at Playa Negra (Black Beach), where, just beyond our hotel, you will find miles of stunning and deserted shoreline. In fact, our hotel is located directly in front of the Caribbean Sea and the beach is the most peaceful, quiet and secure place outside of Puerto Viejo.Although La Perla Negra Hotel and beach is secluded and private, you will always be just a short walk to town (less than 2 kilometers), where you can enjoy great restaurants, shop for locally made souvenirs and crafts, or dance the night away in one of the town´s lively nightclubs. ... more   less
