It was a stopover for one night before going into the jungle for a Bribri Indigenous Peoples village experience, but would be a good place to base while exploring Puerto Viejo and the surrounding area. Your room is like a thatched-roof hut with all the modern facilities of a hotel, plus swimming pool, wonderful restaurant, and short walk across the... More

Breakfast has a good choice with fresh fruit and pancakes made in demand. Restaurant is pricey but ok although there are other restaurants... More

We have just stayed here for three nights. The first impression of the standard jungle room was that it is below standard. Too small, poor ventilation and uncomfortable and noisy beds. On top of this, rooms are not cleaned until 5 or 6 pm. Two pools are advertised but only one us really usable. On the positive side, the food... More

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 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
