A simple and very affordable place to stay when you are visiting Puerto Viejo. A little bit outside the town but in a distance easy to walk. El Pizote is a big property with plenty of bungalows and a nice pool area. Located in a very calm neighborhood, close to nature, where you wake up to the sound of nature.... More

A very charming and beautiful place close to the jungle and to the beach. The owner (and the rest of his staff) of Pizote Lodge is very helpful and accommodating. It's a priceworth alternative, the breakfast is tasty and fresh. Amazing surroundings. We will definitly come back.

We traveled into Puerto Viejo and were due to stay at this hotel for 3 nights. We first arrived at the hotel and were delighted by the hotel grounds. The place was beautiful, although many huge spiders resided along the pathways in their webs. The owner showed us to our hotel and when we walked into the room our opinion... More

We were due to stay here on an organised 10 day trip round southern Costa Rica. Out of a group of 15, 4 of us refused to stay here and found alternative accommodation. I agree the owner seems lovely and the setting is tranquil, however, I have never come across anywhere so dirty in all my life. The sheets were... More

If you are looking for a quiet, relaxing place, just a few minutes away from the center of Puerto Viejo, this is the place to be. The bungalows are rustic but clean with all the essential facilities. The beautiful property is huge and gives you a jungle feel. The amazing Playa Negra is right down the road, you will be... More

We came to this place on the 31st of December after leaving a highly praised hostel in Puerto Viejo, where you couldnt sleep (too many gallos and perros around). We took a bungalow. The bungalow was rustic, but clean with a private bathroom with hot running water. The estate is amazingly big and beautiful. You feel like right in the... More

The cabins and rooms are on an incredible piece of property with a tree that has to be at least a hundred years old. Super quiet and mellow vibe, right in the rainforest and a few steps from the beach. We saw green and black tree frogs and white herons hanging out. The owner is really chill and it feels... More

We attended a wedding; we did not and would not stay there. In serious need of either a complete renovation or a good bulldozing. The staff (if you could call them that) were absolutely useless. They walked out before serving the reception dinner. The Guests had to step up and served the meal. Steer clear..

Board outside states 'Deluxe Eco Lodge'. Deluxe it certainly is not. This could be a really nice place, but needs some care and investment. The lodges are substantial, with a fan (no air con). Some mozzie nets were missing completely and other's were not up to the job, our's allowed in a bat, so I don't believe the mozzie's would... More
