Stayed here for a few days. Casual and fun and not too touristy. It's not the ritz, but for local flavor, it's perfect. Loved that they supplied free kayaks and bikes to get around on water or land. Staff helpful in locating and booking excursions. They even came and found us to notify us that our guides had arrived and... More

After all positive comments I read, I expected much more! The staff is very lousy, when we arrived we had the impression to disturb the guy at the reception. The rooms are small with bad aircon, the a/c is located in the bathroom! The deposit is located under the sink and behind the door, very unpleasant to get access to... More

We very much enjoyed our stay in our small but clean rooms with A/C off the pool area. There were lots of Macaws about, my daughter loved the pool and we all enjoyed the landscaping and harbor view. The iguana feeding by the pool was a special treat. It was easy to walk to anywhere in the town. The staff... More

Variety of rooms to fit all budgets, a lovely pool and free wifi, bikes and kayaks. I rode to a great beach (Iguana Lodge beach) and kayaked at night into the sunset through the mangroves - unbeatable. The rooms are comfortable, have fan or A/C, a fridge and coffee maker as well as plates and cutlery should you want to... More

Walking distance to downtown PJ. Overlooks the Golfo Dulce. Excellent staff (a lovely young lady named Annie) helped us set up fishing with some local guides. They're receptive to unusual requests (e.g. can you store this fish in your refrigerator overnight?) and helpful all around.

This past February 2015 was our first stop in Puerto Jimenez and thanks to the reviews posted on Trip Advisor - we chose this place. We cannot say enough about John and his passion of preserving the real culture of the area. The art work in the rooms and the friendly staff made our stay a perfect 10! We are... More

We spent two nights in this hotel, before and after our hike in the Corcovado National Park. It is very close to the main street but peaceful, quiet and by the water. The room was pretty small but very nice, the bathroom very clean and the shower worked well. The staff was very nice too, they gave us some kayaks... More

The staff here were helpful, the rooms clean and well decked out. Unrelated - corcovado is difficult to access from this area, a drive down the coast is lovely though, we saw howler monkeys, toucans and macaws.

We picked this place because of reviews on Tripadvisor and it was everything and more than we expected. Charming place with wonderful local art and murals inside and out. The owner, John, really took the time to make it a true Costa Rican experience. The free bikes and Kayaks which we used everyday and sometimes many times per day, made... More
