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

La Casona is a very good place for family. All the staff was very friendly an helpful. We took the package with tours included and it was more than what we expected. The location is next to the beach and the food was great. We highly recommended this place.

We knew we wanted to go to Tortuguero but had a hard time finding information about places there and I feel so lucky to have found La Casona. Sara and her family were so hospitable. We booked a package with her that included all of our meals, a canoe tour, a night walk and a forest hike. It was the... More

We had a lovely stay at La Casona and stayed longer than expected. Sara, her mother and the staff are sooo friendly and helpful! The room was good, and it came with a hot shower! The location is perfect: close to the center and the boats and a short walk from the ocean! Only down thing is the wifi not... More

The hostel was included in our tour to Tortuguero. We liked the place as it is located very central, close to the beach and the city. The rooms were basic but nice with hammocks in front of the rooms. The service depended very much on the persons in charge. The first day it was excellent, we were well informed about... More

The room we had was very basic, but large, with a bathroom and hot shower... as if you really need it it Tortuguero! They cleaned the room daily, even if with a little encouragement. And there is a communal space that people can use when the restaurant is closed (herratic hours!). The best thing about this place is the turtle... More

The hotel is very central and the rooms are basic and quiet. There were nice hammocks outside. However, there wasn't air conditioning which didn't help with mosquitoes. At the same time, the room was not spot cleanned. Regarding the service, we felt it would depend on the person at the front desk. There was a nice blond lady who would... More
