Strange place... Clean but unfriendly

We were there for 2 nights and except during breakfast did not see the staff once! Not to greet us, and in the end we just walked off leaving the room key on the door. The hotel was included in our Tortuguero tour package but still it would have been nice to at least say hello to guests. On the... read more

When we arrived they were confused at reception not knowing how long we were staying and said we had booked tours, which we had not booked. After getting over this initial confusion they then stared at us for a couple of minutes before we had to ask for our room key and where our room was. Although this was bad... More

The food here was full of flavour and with great portion sizes. The veggie plate was the best I´ve had in all of South and Central America, with a nice variety of different things on it. The Miss Junie´s Stewed Chicken that my boyfriend had was also amazing, the meat just fell off the bone. The staff were attentive too.... More

A small, quaint local eatery where the food is amazing and the staff exceptional. It was so nice to find little jewels like this off the beaten path in Costa Rica.

This is a lovely place to stay. It is almost at one end of the main strip set in nice grounds with some waterfront. Rooms were characterful and comfortable. We ate in the restaurant one night and the service was friendly and the food was tasty. The historical aspect adds interest, go there yourself to find out!

perhaps we were there on an off night, but the restaurant really needed more staffing. people waiting at the door to be seated eventually gave up and left. we wanted attention with our meals and just had to make do. from food perspective, we were not impressed either. my meal, a seafood mix, was too salty and i wasn't able...

The hotel itself was great -- fan, clean rooms, fresh air with big windows, hot water --all of the basics. It's currently run by Miss Junies' children and they were incredibly hospitable and sweet. Excellent tour guides as well! We took the turtle tour and it was incredibly informational and fun. Beautiful hotel grounds and I would definitely go back.... More

This was my first time trying jerk chicken, and I'm happy to say that Miss Junie's now has me hooked for life. It was so delicious and served with lots of yummy vegetables. The menu offered a wide selection of dishes, plus there were enough beers and wines to choose from. The only downside was that there was no coffee... More

Excellent food. I recommend the Jerk Chicken with coconut rice and beans! It's the best I have ever had. I'm getting hungry just thinking about it as I type this. The mackerel fish is also excellent. I've had the veggie meal too, also very good - comes with avocado, cheese, veggies, rice and beans.

Miss Junie's was a little hard to find--go all the way to the wooden gate and inside the grounds--but well worth the search. The Caribbean gallo pinto was outstanding--amazing hint of coconut. The chicken was wonderful as well!
