As you'll find on a cursory search, the accommodation in Tortuguero falls in two categories: high end Eco lodge, or budget cabins. La casona definitely falls in the latter. It is perfectly comfortable and clean, and there is reliable(ish) hot water, but the rooms aren't winning any points for style. We had a perfectly nice stay here, and the staff... More

La casona has good value for money. The rooms are quite large and have private bathrooms with hot water. The people who run la casona are really sweet and help booking tours and transport. The boat tour with andres that la casona organized was really good. Location and wifi are good. Breakfast is simple but the Coffee is tasty.

We stayed here for 2 nights during a time when it was continually raining. The room was comfortable, and everything worked. We had a fan. The breakfasts were good, and we were able to arrange all types of activities through La Casona. There's one issue with La Casona that could be easily rectified. The courtyard you must cross to get... More

We stayed here for 3 nights in this family hotel and had a very pleasant stay. We had booked a package with breakfast, lunch, dinner and 3 tours. All the food was very nice and various. Andres, our tour guide, knew a lot about the nature and the animals. The rooms were cleaned every day. All the staff is very... More

We stayed for one night in this hotel. The staff was very, very nice. They lend us un umbrella for the heavy rain, and they were very helpful giving us local information. The room was simple but comfortable and clean. For 2 usd we had breakfast at the hostel. It was nice.

We stayed in La Casona for three nights. The room was clean and nice. There was a service every day (cleaning, new towels). The breakfast was served in the restaurant, which was actually closed because of low season (they would have cooked for you on request!). There were various types of breakfast, best was the banana-pancake! The staff (Sara and... More

We had booked a double room with private bathroom. Luckily we were upgraded and got a room which also had a private, really clean and well equipped kitchen. Towels were changed and the room was cleaned daily. The inhouse restaurant offered good food for reasonable prices. The included breakfast offers tropical fruit, bread, butter and jelly and is served in... More

PROs: This hotel offers simple, but nice double rooms with private bathrooms, as well as an onsite restaurant. The rooms are very clean and come with a proper ventilator (not aircon) and all you need. The moskito nets seal perfectly. The location is just about 150 meters from the boat arrival/departure point, so only short walk. The staff is very... More

They took us in when Miss Miram lost our reservation. The room was clean and large. The construction was poor: the floor was sloped and the bathroom looked like an after-thought add-on. We had a noisy bunch out on the balcony that night. Our room overlooked the dining area and from the window the food looked pretty good. The service... More
