Lush jungle setting with easy access to a gorgeous beach. What more could you want. Clean and functional room with lots of space and very helpful staff. Moved to another room just as nice when a shower problem could not be fixed right away. Breakfast was superb with an abundance of fresh fruits and cooked to order eggs. 20 minute... More

I spent 5 days here with my 12 year old grand daughter. The staff - with two HUGE exceptions - were all very nice. Our jungle bungalow was large, and kept extremely clean by housekeeping. The reception staff was very kind and helpful; my granddaughter developed a serious eye irritation, and they provided us with cold compresses, and lot of... More

We stayed at Cariblue 2 weeks ago, it was a 3 night vacation. We had a nice, clean and private room. The staff was very kind and the grounds are lovely. The beach is really beautiful, we had a total relax time in the Caribbean, just what we need it :).

I’ll always remember my stay in Costa Rica and enjoying my time at Cariblue Resort for almost two weeks, it’s surely been the best choice ever! I loved the fact that all of Cariblue’s bungalows are nestled outside within pristine tropical jungle. I enjoyed my little jungle space outside the comfortable and well-equipped bungalow. Food needs a positive remark as... More

We booked a "Deluxe" room for two nights the 2nd week of september, as part of our tour of Costa Rica. Puerto Viejo of Talamanca and the region are a must to get a feeling of the caribbean / rasta culture that settled here. The hotel is located in a beautiful tropical wood a bit outside the village and offers... More

Even though we did not stay at this hotel I wanted to leave a review based on our experience with the reception staff. We had been in Puerto Viejo for a couple of nights and wanted to move hotel to be closer to Cocles beach. After an afternoon at the beach we noticed Cariblue which looked appropriate.

We stayed in a bungalow which ended up being confortable enough. It was nice to hear the noise of the forest at night (cigales, monkeys). We were not happy by service at restaurant and front desk. Check in was not good, restaurant personnel was rude ... our only experience in 2 weeks in Costa Rica where we met so many... More

We stayed six nights with our two children in an Ocean Beach Front Room, a few meters across the road to Playa Cocles, probably the nicest beach in the area. The room was fairly basic, but was well maintained and was cleaned every day. With ceiling fans as well as air-conditioning, it was easy to keep cool at night. Our... More
