We found this hotel to be good value. Air conditioned. Walk straight from your back patio to the beach, Appliances in the room were old but everything worked fine. The staff were friendly, food was good. WiFi signal doesn't always reach the room farthest from the lobby. If you exit the hotel heading left (away from town) there are some... More

We stayed at this hotel during our vacation to "El Caribe". It has some air conditioned rooms- I highly recommend having A/C. It's close to great restaurants and attractions. There is beach access, but better beaches you need to drive to.

This place is right on the beach.We spent our honeymoon and our room was wonderful. Our entire wedding party stayed for a few days occupying 10 rooms. We had two story condo's and stood in a single room for the honeymoon. The rooms feel like a condo. Each room has a back patio equipped with a bbq pit, patio furniture,... More

Great location on a generally private beach. Great pool with elevated jacuzzi - not heated. Very scenic beach for tanning or strolling. Not great for jogging or boogie boarding, body surfing. Not really possible to get out past the reef.

The location is perfect because it is right off the beach and at the same time slightly away from all the shops and the hustle and bustle of all the tourists of downtown Puerto Viejo if you're not into that. The rooms are spacious with a super large queen-size bed and a balcony with a hammock overlooking the Caribbean Sea,... More

The Caribbean side of Costa Rica seems to be more rustic and a little less modern than the Pacific side. That said, this was a nice, clean, very comfortable, and uncrowded place to stay. It appears to be a bit older but well taken care of. We had a nice porch. It only had one lounge chair so I asked... More

We are very pleased you enjoyed your stay at VIllas del Caribe; was a real pleasure to welcome you as our guest. Indeed some areas of our hotel are old buildings; such as an old, authentic and traditional caribbean style beach house which is the site of our Seaside restaurante. We hope you enjoyed our "Gallo pinto"... We deeply appreciate... More

Villas del Caribe has a wonderful location; straight at the beach and you can choose to straight dip in the blue for some snorkeling at the reef, walk 5 minutes to the beach break for surfing or stroll in the different direction for some calm swimming waters.... just beautiful!

Lets say first this hotel is in the Caribbean and that mind since obvious for you and me but some ppl don't take that seriously. Being in the Caribbean is hard this is not the kind of weather you can control but in a beautiful way. You will see some ants walking in the kitchen if you let something out... More

Having already been to the Pacific side, I'd wanted to explore the eastern coast of Costa Rica, so we stayed at Villas del Caribe on the advice of a friend of a friend. I'm going to try to write a fair review here, because I can see how this place would be great for some people--but it definitely isn't for... More
