What a truly wonderful experience for our first time staying in Coast Rica. The La Costa de Papito owners and staff were wonderful and truly great people. They made our family feel part of theirs. They were very friendly, helpful and accommodating in every way. They were very helpful in coordinating our excursions, giving us advice on activities, and for... More

Highly recommended for those whole look for peaceful and quite place to stay where birds can be heard whole day. Bungalows are massive and everything is made from wood - which is pretty impressive as well as the delicious breakfast. The have a special ofer: if you book 48h before you pay like 3/4 of the initial price which is... More

We were welcomed with open arms, despite not having a prior reservation. They took care of our every need and Minerva took especially great care of us, always with a huge smile and a "pura vida" after each request. The bungalows are really cute and well built, perfectly comfortable for our stay.

I stayed here for 2 nights and I must say I really enjoyed it and will definitely return. I was ill on my check out day and they accommodated me right up until the moment my minibus turned up. Minerva, a receptionist, went above and beyond her duty for me and helped organise a change of plan. They refunded me... More

This place as the character of a hostel in many ways. The bungalows are very unique and artistically designed. However, it is a perfect example of form over function. There are lots of big windows with fancy border "grates" of wood, however, there are not shades or curtains. So it looks nice, but is a problem if you want to... More

There was definitely no hot water and apologies are required! These clients had a reservation for one night made through an agency and next morning the cleaning staff reported that there was no hot water in the shower because a breaker switch had been tripped. Really a shame that these clients didn`t report the problem because with the flick of... More

If you are willing to sleep with a celling fan in 80+ degrees and humidity of 90 or more percent. (NO A/C) ..this is the place to stay, otherwise I suggest you do your homework and don't be duped by Travel agents that tell you this is equivalent to a hotels otherwise advertised in package deals. The property is lovely,... More

This is really unfair! These people were not clients of ours who made a reservation with us after “getting to know us” on our website. They were clients of a USA agency who sold them an inexpensive package deal indicating another hotel on the coast here as the included hotel. The agency contacted us after this hotel decided not to... More

I loved satying at La Costa De Papito. It was beautiful and had everything could ask for. Good food, great service, beautiful location, clean, etc. Only downside was that they didn't compromise anything on the price when I had to leave earlier due to sickness.

La Costa de Papito was much nicer than we expected. The premises are very beautiful and the bungalows are craftily sparsed along the property. That renders a very nice sense of privacy. There is plenty of space in the bungalows. They have a large porche with a hammock and a table. Very nice. The rooms are clean, dry, well-ventilated. The... More

Our family of 5 spent 3 nights at the end of August and found the bungalow to be comfortable, clean with a great atmosphere. We're especially liked the unique design of the rooms and the grounds, making us feel like we were on vacation in a different country instead of just another chain hotel. The staff was very helpful with... More

We really enjoyed staying at La Costa de Papito. The bungalows are comfortable and well equipped. The location is very good, close to Puerto Viejo town but with enough distance to not be noisy or crowded. The breakfast buffet is also very good.
