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.

My wife and I spent several days at this resort and had a very nice time. The owner, Eddie, and his sister, Kitty, were excellent hosts and their assistants were great. They helped my wife and I immeasurably when we had a few snags. The bungalows are great with no phone, no tv, and no a/c except palm trees and... More

Great location, great service, great time. Highly recommend this place. They have private bungalows, but people come together for breakfast and everyone is super-friendly not just hidden away in the bungalows. It is not right on the beach, but the beach is just a short walk, and you definitely feel like you're in a beachtown. Laid back atmosphere, it is... More

We arrived exhausted in Puerto Viejo after an almost 5 hour ride from San Jose. La Costa de Papito staff were very accommodating and even allowed us to use our room before the traditional check-in time. Clean room with plenty of fresh air. The windows had screens and our bed also had a bug net for nighttime. We enjoyed our... More

If you want to amenities and a jungle experience, this is the place to go. Ample wildlife around - sloths in trees, many birds, insects, etc. I was woken by the calls of howler monkeys several mornings during my stay. The grounds beautifully integrate pathways and bungalows into the forest.The bungalows are comfortable and equipped with fantastic porches that include... More

Mr friends and I stayed here last week and we loved and enjoyed every single bit of this place. The hotel is feet away from the gorgeous Cocles Beach, which is definitely one of the better beaches in Puerto Viejo. From the moment we arrived, the receptionists and owner greeted us, as if they had been waiting for only us.... More

I could go on and on... But, suffice it for ALL TRAVELERS, to say that La Costa de Papito has CONSISTENTLY PROVEN to me and my Friends and Family that I need not look ANYwhere else for accommodations in Puerto Viejo, Costa Rica. I/we have been back OFTEN and will continue to trust this fine establishment... The service, the food,... More
