We had 3 very nice days at Miss Junie's. Nice people - and you should definitely visit the restaurant. The best in Costa Rica... The rainforest is VERY accessible, and the beautiful beach just in the front of the hotel.

Somewhat overpriced and over recommended, compared with nicer places for less money. Small breakfast in a tasteless restaurant. The owner seems also not much pleased with people staying for only 1 night. Much hestitation if yes or no he would accept a credit card (!?) when checkin out. Not really the place we will stay again next time.

I had a most delightful stay at Miss Junie's in Tortuguero in March, 2015. This was 10th trip to Costa Rica and Miss Junie's was the most authentic Costa Rican hotel experience I have ever had ! It was a first-class Caribbean Tico experience. The staff is delightful, the food is excellent (Nolli is an amazing chef), and the atmosphere... More

My wife and I stayed at Miss Junnies for 2 nights we did the morning canoe and the night tour and ate at the restaurant for one night. The hotel is perfectly located within the village with everything within an easy reach. The room was spotless and over looked the sea. We were surrounded by nature including sounds of the... More

We stayed here as part of a tour. The rooms were basic, but clean and comfortable, however hot water can be a lottery. I didn't manage to get a hot shower, although others in the group did. The location is great, a two minute stroll into town and just seconds from the beach. You can sit outside your rooms ant... More

This is a lovely place to stay, characterful rooms, nice grounds and an interesting history. You can't go wrong if you stay here, there is some waterfront and you are just a few meters walk to the ocean the other way. The restaurant is good too with typical dishes on offer.

We were wondering if we should stay in town and book tours ourselves or just go for easy booking via a lodge including meals, tours, transport but missing out on village life and turtle beach. I'm glad we chose for miss junie's. It's location is perfect, on nice grounds at the end of the village and next to the river... More

Nicely decorated and clean rooms set within we, look after gardens at the end of the main path in town, so always only a few minutes walk to all the tours. It is also just a stones throw from the best restaurant for miles......Wild Ginger. The problems I had , but I think I was rare case......The power didn't work... More

If you want to truly experience Tortuguero, then you should stay at Miss Junie's. I have stayed here multiple times, and each stay has been excellent. All of the staff is very friendly, kind, accommodating, and knowledgeable. The staff's historical knowledge of Tortuguero, the local wildlife, and the sea turtle conservation movement is exceptional - as Miss Junie's is owned... More

My wife and I have stayed at Miss Junie's now for the 3rd time. Each time was excellent, the staff goes out of their way to make sure we are cared for. This is by far the cleanest, safest hotel in Tortuguero. The Jerk Chicken is the best, each meal is painstakingly made with perfection.
