There is NO service, rooms have NO locks, bathroom has NO locks either and to top it all shower has NO door!!!! The people in charge of the reception are so out of it that they keep no record of who parks where and the keep no track of the car plates, so if you have plans to visit other... More

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

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 Big rooms that are clean but a little outdated.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
