I drove around costa Rica and I stayed at the Perla Negra in early October for 4 days. The place is not a 5 a start hotel, here is the bad news, if you are looking for a 5 star place, you are not going to find one in Puerta Veijo. Nonetheless, if you are looking for something magical, perla... More

No frills, very basic, bad ant problem. It was a room. Really needs some updates. If they put in a little money to fix some things up, like shower improvements, bed linens, ant control measures, it might be a really nice place.

I speak limited Spanish and found it easier and better if you could talk to the wonderful desk man in German. He seemed grateful to have someone speaking in his native tongue and bent over backwards to help us. We spent the first night in an upstairs room overlooking the beach. The room was very large and clean but without... More

Just returned from a 5-night stay at La Perla Negra. What a wonderful, charming place! It is located far enough from the bustle of the town to escape the other tourists, but easily within walking distance. My husband and I walked to PV along the beach each day and took a taxi back in the evening. The beach is clean,... More

La Perla Negra was a real finding for us and, as soon as we arrived there, we were sure that it was exactly what we were looking for our vacations. Far enough from Puerto Viejo (2 km) as to stay apart from the traffic and the noises of the town, but close enough to go there as many times as... More

Do not be fooled by the web-site into staying at this place, it is a dump and the management terrible. We booked this place as it looked nice on the web and advertised "luxury" accommodations. While they certainly charge luxury rates for Costa Rica, the hotel is anything but. We stayed in one of the condos. It has recently been... More

Our stay in this hotel was excellent, and exceeded our expectations. La Perla Negra fitted our objectives, finding an establishment away from the noise, with some views of the sea but ultimately indescribably sounds of the waves, a constant experience for 24 hours a day. We chose the rooms without air condition to experience the natural breeze of the region.... More

La Perla Negra Hotel in Costa Rica turned out to be exactly a place we were looking for - a quiet spot, beautifully situated right on a sandy beach, offering also a very well maintained swimming pool. It' s close (less than 2 km) to a town of Puerto Viejo - a great beach walk. The staff were very friendly,... More

When opening the door to our room, a musty odor overwhelmed us. Our room was a good size and had a lovely balcony with a tranquil view of the palms. There was a loft that looked like it hadn't been cleaned in quite some time. The patio area was a good hang out place. Internet was sporatic. The manager was... More

We loved this hotel. The host, Wesley, was friendly as were his staff. The location is superb, on the beach and close to town but far enough away to be relaxing. Everything we needed was there and we felt at home. Slept to the sound of the waves and enjoyed the view of pool and beach. Rooms were comfortable and... More
