The room was clean and the beds were firm which is standard in most places, we have stayed in many places in Puerto Viejo and through out Costa Rica. There was a buffet breakfast included with eggs and pancakes being made to order. The... More

The beds are very hard, the stay was expensive for what it is. I would not book this hotel again, had to wait for towels everyday, also the room took forever to get cleaned. They charged the room in colones to make an additional $13, when the intranet rate was in US Dollars. The wifi does not work in the... More

We visited this hotel for 4 nights in January 2015. The hotel is located about 2 km south of Puerto Viejo a little inside the jungle. The rooms are twin cottages speak out in the "jungle". Inside the cottage is a bedroom and a bathroom. No tea kitchen present. There are two restaurants with the hotel. One for breakfast and... More

I very much enjoyed our stay here. Laying in a hammock and listening to the wildlife around me while I read was amazing. The room was comfortable, but a bit rustic if you don't enjoy that. The staff was kind and attentive, but out of the way. The restaurant was a bit over priced, and the food was average to... More

The upgrade rate was more then double the original cost of the room. The tv only got four Spanish channels and no internet in rooms. Super clean rooms, comfy beds. Very tiny bathroom.... More

We stayed at the Cariblue Hotel on January 14, 2015. The room they gave us #123, was awful. I have been in better youth hostel rooms than this one. The room had two small twin beds.

Dear guest, thank you very much for your time and for your comment. It is normal in the tropics for small insects to enter the room, even though housekeepers clean every day under defined standards and daily supervision as well. Another important aspect is that the maintenance of a hotel in the tropics is constant, proof of this is that... More
