Cabinas Montesol is in the perfect part of Puerto Viejo, a couple minute walk from the center but hidden away from the main road so it's super peaceful and quiet. We were only going to stay 2 nights and ended up staying 3. The showers had lots of hot water and they made our bed and changed our towels everyday.... More

Montesol is located at the end of a small side road just off the of the main street. The location means it's much quieter whilst still being a few minutes walk from the hub of everything. Unfortunately that was just about the only good thing about Montesel, as there was an utter lack of care by the owners throughout my... More

We stayed in the Monte Sol Bungalow for four nights, and it was not easy to leave. The staff was very friendly, the room and bad were bright and clean (hot water shower), and the bed was very confortable and big (there are tow big beds in the bungalow). Every morning we enjoyed cooking our own breakfast and eat on... More

Me and my boyfriend check some hostels out after not liking the hostel we stayed in the first night in puerto viejo (well mainly me did not like the first hostel) the price was not bad, nice hot shower (and easy to understand for once!) comfortable room, and very specious if you as me! Very clean. Friendly staff, though the... More

We stayed for a night at Monte Sol and arrived pretty late after driving all day from the west coast of Costa Rica. The staff at the desk was super friendly for it being late and the rest of the staff were friendly whenever we saw them. The room was comfortable with screens and a big fan but pretty noisy... More

Stayed at Cabinas Monte Sol for 4 nights in June 2013. We arrived on the Monday, so had a pick of various rooms, following the exodus of Ticos who descend to Puerto Viejo over the weekend to relax. The owners were lovely; a German guy and his charming Costa Rican wife, who were both very accommodating and friendly. We loved... More

I have now visited Cabinas Monte Sol for the second time. My first time was in 2010 and I've been waiting to come back. It totally feels like home. Peter and Iris, who own, run and manage the facility are incredibly kind, accommodating. They are always willing to provide advice, comfort and a dose of fun conversation. It's a happy... More

I stayed in the room upstairs with the queen bed. Only had to share the bathroom and balcony with table and hammock with one other room. Lovely building, super clean, set back from the beach a little and the noisy bars so was very tranquil.

Thoroughly enjoyed our stay here - location is great, room was clean, felt like we were staying in a treehouse in the jungle! The howler monkeys are right outside the window! Plus the owner is incredibly helpful and accommodating. A kitchen would've been handy (as we're on a budget) but everything else was great.

We moved here after a horrible experience at another hostel in Puerto Viejo and were so relieved we did! Cabin as were clean, new and so were the mosquito nets- not that you need them. The rooms are completely sealed. Bathrooms are really nice and clean. Central meeting area is cool and has a nice relaxed vibe. Was also nice... More
