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

I stayed here 3 years back when purchasing my property. When my parents finally came for a visit got them a room on the bottom floor, witch was great because she uses a walker. They loved the place! Still talking about it and all the people they met there on their visit and they loved the breakfast! The staff was... More

The rooms have not been updated since the 90's. This includes sheets, mattress, and towels. The service is nonexistent and there is no management to assist with complaints and needs. It simply has negative energy and does not represent a Pura Vida lifestyle.

I stayed here for 3 nights and cannot recommend this hotel. The only good thing is that it is right on the beach, but the beach isn't that nice and I was cautioned to stay out of the water there. It is a quaint little hotel with a pool and nice enough breakfast. The fruit is really good, but that's... More

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
