Hotels in and around Puerto Limon are basic and rather grim. It's worth driving a few kilometers south to Hotel Playa Westfalia. The 2-story, motel-style design is nothing fancy, but the staff is friendly and efficient, gardens are pleasantly designed, and rooms are large and well-maintained with reliable hot water, air conditioning and ceiling fans. My standard room even had a little kitchenette with mini-fridge and coffee maker. Good firm bed with clean sheets and decent pillows. The pool is crystal clear and inviting, the beach less so. It's not maintained (flotsam, jetsam, some trash, lots of driftwood), and the surf is rather rough. The restaurant didn't offer much choice behind basic (and tasty) Tico fare, and the bar could be better stocked. Mixed drinks were limited to rum, and beer choices were similarly limited. No wifi, at least in the rooms. A pack of friendly, well-cared for dogs helps guard the place. They barked a couple times during the night but quickly calmed down. I felt secure and would stay here again.
