Great place to stay in Tortuguero. Quiet and easy to get to the rest of the village. Caribbean sea is right on the doorstep and there is a great service from staff how make your stay really comfortable and are helpful. Wildlife is all around the village and the place is completely unique.

Stayed here for three nights in march, very friendly very helpful family, the guides here are also excellent. The rooms are basic but clean and made up everyday. This hotel is metres from the beach front. Breakfast good value and tasty.

For what you get we thought our room was a bit overpriced, it would be more reasonable value if breakfast was included in the rate. We've paid less for better rooms in Costa Rica. Nonetheless, we had a good stay. Room was really clean, everything worked well. Cleaned daily & given fresh towels. Note to the staff- please don't move... More

I've just spent four nights here, I booked three at first but extended as it was so good. The location is great....right on the beach of the roaring Carib. Town is only a five minute walk away but maybe bring rucksacks not wheeled trolleys as tarmac is rare & surfaces uneven. The rooms are basic but kept clean & there... More

We (two young couples) stayed in one big room (3 beds, one double bed) with private bathroom for two nights. The cabines are located directly at the beach and offer few nice hammocks to chill. We had breakfast there once, which was also good. Since the turtle season was over at this time, we decided to leave Tortuguero one day... More

The hotel is located on the seafront with a good and relaxing atmosphere. The rooms face a central garden. They are cozy and clean and the bathroom is good. The hotel has good breakfast but other meals are not available.

We stayed here last week, and thought the place was pretty well packed with a lot of European tourists and small groups, it was very quiet and peaceful. Rooms are very basic, but my daughter and I spent our time sightseeing so didn't need much.. However, there is WiFi, a pool close by and the beach is only a stone's... More

Stayed here for 2 nights. Had a double room with ensuite. Two big beds and a fan. The staff is very friendly and you are only a few footsteps away from the beach. No breakfast included but you can order something in the morning. It was a nice stay! :-)

Loved the location, right on the beach, a bit away from the village centre so very quiet for those dreamy evening hanging in the hammock and listening to the waves pounding. It's a very simple place - mind you, exactly as it is advertised - yet i loved the simplicity and exotic feel to it. Owner and his wife are... More

Was really surprised by the great reviews of this place. We planned to stay two nights but only stayed one and couldn't wait to get out of there. They started trying to sell us tours before we even got on the boat in La Pavona. Once we got to Tortuguero, after four hours of travel, they took us aside and... More
