I was fortunate enough to travel to Costa Rica and find this gem of a hotel. The family that owns this establishment could not have been nicer and more welcoming. Their place is located a bit out of town but right across from the most wonderful beach. The housing is clean and really gives you the jungle experience with all... More

The hotel locates in the jungle. You can stay in the nature. There is no TV. This place was very nice and bungalows beautiful. The room was clean, bright and airy, beds with mosquito nets. It's hard to describe but it was unique, and comfortable. The bathroom was unique. It looked straight out of the stones. The Staff were really... More

You can stay in... More

We made a last-minute decision to visit Puerto Viejo, so didn't do the usual extensive research before booking! I was down to what was available, reasonable value, and relatively close to the main town. I booked La Costa de Papito on a last minute rate, and truly hit the jackpot. It has a rustic feel without missing out on any... More

Stayed here for a week learning to surf and glad I chose this place,the rooms are individual cute bungalows with there own hammock in a semi rain forest setting. I had a problem while there and the owner's sister (who was running it that week) was a complete star with how she dealt with it being very generous. The property... More

Wow. This place was great. We had this amazing private, secluded bungalow with a wrap around porch, and hammock. The room was clean, bright and airy, with fans and mosquito nets. It's hard to describe but it was unique, beautiful, and comfortable. The bathroom too was unique, it looked straight out of the flintstones, really neat. It rained heavily for... More
