This hotel is just beautifull. You'll sleep on a really nice Bungalow in the middle of the tropical forest, surrounded by the sounds of the nature, just a few walk to paradise Caribbean beaches. The Boungalows are equipped with a hand crafted wooden bed with a mosquito need that create a romantic and peaceful ambience. On the front terrace you'll... More

This was a beautiful hotel in a beautiful location. Alejandro was a great host. Very helpful and gracious. We did our best to communicate in broken Spanish and English. Just be pre warned that there is no wifi or hot water. It was nice to disconnect and unplug for the weekend but we did not know that going into it.... More

Plain and simple, this place is amazing! Peaceful and quiet. A little stream runs past my bugalow next to a tree that could easily be over 200 years old as I swing peacefully in a hammock on the porch. Like I said awesome! Beautiful area for yoga with sauna. Playa chiquita is gorgeous and nearby, a little walk through the... More

Date of Stay; 12/22/14 to 12/24/24 Pros: Great location, Playa Chiquita is the most quiet and exclusive beach in the area. Breakfast is outstanding and very healthy. Wildlife around the bungalows. Bungalows are clean and updated. Staff is very helpful and will help you with anything you need. Very few other people in the area if that is what you... More

I had the great privilege of staying at Tierra de Suenos in July for a weekend visit to Puerto Viejo. I was debating several different places to stay at and settled on Tierra de Suenos because of its good reviews and proximity to Playa Chiquita. So glad I did! I had a beautiful little bungalow in the middle of the... More

The bungalows, though simple, are excotically set in a rain forest jungle, dense and green and very much teeming with life. No need to go far for your own little safari - that's for sure! Staying here is truly amazing, a once-in-a-lifetime experience. The amenities are simple, but the food served is tasty and the family who runs the place... More

All my thanks go to Alejandro, a local guy who was working at the resort doing a bit of everything. Extremely sweet and available, it was so nice to have him around. One morning we went on an a excursion really early and he packed breakfast for us. He also spent a lot of time with us giving us recommendations... More

Loved it here, we had an awesome treehouse and saw animals we didn't see elsewhere which was exciting. We slept in a treehouse and had a bathroom with a huge shower, five of us had no problems with the accommodations and enjoyed sitting on the deck with a bench, chairs and hammock. Great staff, very friendly and gave us coffee,... More

Found this place without a reservation. They were most accommodating. What gem. Slept 5 in a two story cabina. We all loved it! Super fun bathroom that reminded of the Flintstones movie! Fun! Beautiful plants everywhere you looked! Woke to howler monkeys in the trees. Saw animals that in 8 years in Costa Rica we had never seen. Very nice... More

We wanted very much to like Tierra de Suenos Lodge, but it was a bit of a disappointment. When we FINALLY found it (due to the miniscule sign) the first surprise was the tiny gravel parking lot, which made us feel we were in the wrong place. We headed in to sign up, and they only had a single key... More

I would like to extend my apologies for what you feel was a bad experience however all of our bungalows are listed in detail on our websites with full pictures of each. You also arrived at 11am which is 9 hours after check in time and 3 hours after reception closes. Our onsite manager was not thrilled with the cursing... More
