This place is a great gated resort. We had cabin #213 which was really quite and beautiful. The grounds are stunning. There are frogs, crab and birds everywhere. The pool was great, Oscar was our bartender and he was awesome. The food was really good! The beach is literally across the road. We did not have wifi in our cabin,... More

We stayed at hotel Cariblue a few weeks ago, June 2015, we had a bungalow room, the staff was super friendly and attentive. The only bad thing was that the Wifi there is terrible! None in our room at all even though they said we could get it on the porch and it was very spotty in the lobby, made... More

We stayed 5 nights at Cariblue and felt the best way to give this review is with a list of pros and cons. Pros: - It's in the jungle right across the street from the beach. The grounds are beautiful and you can see wildlife (hummingbirds, sloths, frogs, monkeys) just walking around the hotel. The staff seems to work really... More

This little hotel was wonderful. The staff was always nice (they even let me call the US at the front desk). Accommodations were good for the area....I admit I have to have my AC and we probably paid a little more for that but it was our honeymoon after all. My only suggestion for improvement would be for better service... More

This was my second stay in the Cariblue hotel. The first time was in summer 2009 with my wife and this time I was accompnying a group of 15 travellers as tour leader. Puerto Viejo is a nice little town, which you should visit during your Costa Rica trip. And in my opinion the Cariblue is an excellent place to... More

The entire experience was outstanding, from check in to check out. Emilia took excellent care of us at dinner and Oscar was as fabulous as previous reviews implied. The food in the restaurant was only average but the drinks were awesome (Tico ticos are so yummy) and happy hour (241 at $5 apiece) at the pool was so fun! I... More

From the moment we arrived we felt that we were transported a million miles away from our professional lives to a much simpler, and relaxing place. Truly Pura Vida. The service was spectacular from the moment we checked in until checkout. The lush grounds were filled with exotic trees, plants, and animals with the occasional friendly canine looking for a...
