We rolled into town with no reservations and this hotel suited our needs perfectly. The secure parking was very convenient and the garden/courtyard was a nice touch. The room was clean and spacious. We spoke very little Spanish and the staff, who spoke little English, were very welcoming and accommodating. The hotel is very conveniently located in Puerto Jimenez, walking... More

Clean rooms and baths, nice and clean beds, friendly staff and they keep your bags while you go into the park. No breakfast, but there are places that open at 4:00 AM for that. Has a beautiful garden with a table under a charming roof where you can eat. It's a great option!

We stood there for about a week and we loved that place. It has a beautifull garden and very nice, spacious and clean rooms. The owner is very friendly and tries to fullfill all your needs. They have gooses in the back, which are very noisy, especially in the early morning:-)

I spent three nights in a room with AC, no TV, private bath and two single beds. There was a shelf-clothes rack unit and benches to sit on outside, facing the garden and parking area. There was also a thatch roof shelter with a long table and benches in the garden. Parking is convenient and secure with a gate closed... More

When you find a good place to stay why go anywhere else? We are treated like family each time we visit. It's friendly, clean, safe, and quiet! There is a close family atmousphere with a beautiful garden and gazebo to relax in. There is parking which is locked at night with a night watchman on guard while we sleep. They... More

First off, there was no breakfast as advertised in the big sign in the corner. There was no internet, the woman at the check in explained that 'that thing' was not working (pointing at the wi fi). On the other hand, it was an affordable place, with parking space, and with a good location (no beachfront though). It was clean.... More

We stayed here 3 nights in November '10 and really liked the place. Rooms were very clean, quite big, nice to stay at. We paid $ 31 for a double room. Location is great as well, just in the center of Puerto Jiménez. It felt like a safe place, garden is nice as well. Don't expect luxury but the place... More

I thought I'd found a rare gem and it was only glass. Changed the price on me after a long distance quote that brought me here to begin with AND after I'd paid for the week I was going to stay. When I said I'd pack and leave the next morning she renegotiated for an extra $5 a day and... More

The rooms are the cleanest and most comfortable we experienced in Costa Rica. Puerto Jimenez is a small town, with a lot of roosters, so you wake up early. That's not bad at all, because the only reason you visit this town, is because you want to go to Corcovado (one of the most beautiful places in the world). And... More

We were looking for a small clean room, close by to where my friend Mike Boston who owns the very experienced and respected Osaventura Tour comapany resides in the town of Puerto Jimenez. We found that the accommodation was more than adequate in a clean room, with fan and the person who looked after us, Sadie, was there every morning.... More
