This is a hot, dirty, budget motel with a barely adequate restaurant. No hot water, little ventilation and a small window and poor ceiling fan is all you get but that's better than the floor stand fan in other rooms. The amount of sand tracked in the rooms makes it hard to stay clean. Sand sticks to your feet and... More

Where do I begin? No AC, no hot water, no pool, ocean swimming not allowed. Would never recommend this place. I definitely like the Pacific side of Costa Rica better. The one bright spot was the restaurant next door Wild Ginger great food. Town is very small.

Miss Junie's was the perfect place to start our 3-week Costa Rican adventure. Carla was a phenomenal host. She took us on a canoe tour of Tortuguero's canals, using her knowledge and expertise to point out a diverse array of wildlife. She also took the time to give us pointers for the rest of our trip! We arranged a turtle... More

Super friendly and helpful staff. We arranged a canoe tour through the hotel and had an excellent guide called Luis Mendoza. The rooms are nicely furnished with lots of wood. Breakfast was very good (fruit, gallo pinto, eggs, coffee etc) although we didn't go to the hotel restaurant for dinner as the prices seemed high and Tortuguero has many other... More

This is a charming hotel. Don't expect 5 star accommodations. There is no A/C. There is a fan and a ocean breeze. The bathrooms are simple and functional. The view is lovely. Where this hotel shines is its owners and employees. They were gracious and accommodating. They went out of their way to be helpful. For example my mother has... More

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
