Great place to stay! Good value, helpful staff especially the young woman who works days at the front desk. Comfortable room with 3 comfy beds with mosquito netting (Cabina 3) and a large bathroom, large deck with eating area. We loved getting our buffet breakfast and taking back to our nice deck area. Fans were all you needed to sleep... More

So many great things about this place I don't know where to begin! We drove from San Jose in the pouring rain and arrived at 9:15pm. We were greeted with smiling faces and welcome drinks at the bar and was even asked if we wanted anything to eat even though they were closing in a few minutes. We were shown... More

I really hate to give this place less than an excellent rating if only because the staff was so unfailingly nice and tried really hard to make everything right but some things just can't be made right in the short term of one travelers stay. Many of the complaints that I have are mentioned in other reviews but have obviously... More

We are pleased with the compliments and distressed by the complaints. Because of the humidity and the salt air the beach chairs (which we provide as a courtesy) barely last a season and we are constantly replacing them. There are actually 2 towel hooks in the bathroom. It´s a 4 bed bungalow and our guest has inspired the installation of... More

This is a magical place. Waking up in a bungalow jungle life everywhere you look. The staff was so attentive and informative. Bungalows are mystical and super clean. Family friendly. If your looking for a spiritual experience this is the place to quiet the mind. I am still in awe about my whole experience.

What a wonderful surprise to find La Costa de Papito. The ride from the airport was long but we were greeted on arrival by the most friendly and accomodating staff I've witnessed in a long while. The cabins were beautiful thatched cottages, with mosquito netting, we really didn't need, large beds and even a comfortable hammock on the porch. We... More

We just finished 6 nights at Costa de Papito. This cabana style hotel is great. Our family of five had an amazing stay. The staff was so helpful with setting up trips for us and making recommendations. Keep in mind the rooms are open air with screens. No A/C. But we felt it added to the whole feel of Puerto... More

NOTE: My husband is a Tico and we live in the States, but we frequent Puerto Viejo when in Costa Rica; it is by far one of my favorite spots to visit, and we have stayed at Papito's many times over the past 10 years. Please accept my apologies: this review is long overdue and from our stay 11/2011 (I... More

Just 100 m from the Playa Cocles in a tropical garden you may chill out in a hammock on the porch of a wooden cabina with a fresh Piña (Colada) and dream about staying over Christmas. We were lucky to celebrate a Calypso Christmas night with a cheerful local band and owner Eddy and his lovely family, the 2 daughters... More

I've been to many places around the world. When it to comes to rest and relaxation this is the one. The town is quaint (no airs), food from a-z, no expectations. Dress is casual to bohemian. The Hotel is lovely set at the edge of jungle and beach just at the edge of town. You get the feeling of nature... More
