We stayed for 3 nights in this glorious place, we wished we could have stayed longer. We were allocated cabin number 3, a spacious 3 bed cabin with a wonderful bathroom that was like something from the flintstones! A huge verandah complete with table and chairs and a wonderful hammock to lounge around in, all set in beautiful gardens filled... More

Our stay at La Costa de Papito was incredible. The bungalow was very private, and comfortable. The food was very good, and the staff made us feel right at home. Eddie, the owner took the time to tell me all about his adventure in the creation of this beautiful resort. We travel to Central America quite often, and we will... More

The bungalows are designed in a very nice way. They are clean and they all have a wifi-connection. Just a few hundreds of meters away from the beach. The service is also very top and efficient. So, this hotel is highly recommendable.

In early July my daughter and I came to La Costa de Papito for an extended stay. This was our FIFTH visit to Puerto Viejo and every time we visit, we stay at La Costa de Papito. It is starting to feel like a second home to us. Eddie and Auxi have done a great job with this property. It... More

We were amazed at the publicity for this hotel and were very excited to go there. It however did NOT meet our expectations. When we arrived, we were asked to pay upfront for the entire 7 days of our stay. The rooms were not what we had signed up for. The bungalow smelled bad. The bathroom was outside the bungalow,...

I ´ll go on the internet if don´t get my money said the client .The bungalow doesn´t smell bad and the service is not lackluster .The hotel is perfect for families and the 3 door 2 bedroom bungalow with the bathroom in the middle is not akward or scary .No one was sick. It was raining hard the morning they... More

My two friends and I stayed there two nights and loved it! Beautiful bungalow, rustic and colorful. The whole place is pure art. The owners put a lot of work and dedication in every detail, from the title in the bathroom floor to the sculptures in the garden. We want to go back and stay more days. Totally worth the... More

I absolutely loved staying here! Yes, it is a 5-hour drive from the Juan Santamaría International Airport in San Jose, but it is sooo worth it! First of all, we hired a private driver to take us down to the coast. The drive, itself, is beautiful -- going on narrow mountainous roads through the rainforests was breathtaking. Once we got...

This was our second trip to this location, with friends that also visited before. This time we had the chance to stay in Bungalow 10. The bathroom is set between the 2 bedrooms on either side. The one drawback is that you have to step outside to enter into the bathroom, since there is not a door from either of... More
