We arrived in Puerto Viejo at night after a very long bus ride. When we arrived at Hotel Guarana we were extremely happy we had booked there (we just emailed them the day before we arrived as were able to get a room). The owner, Paolo is super friendly and made us feel at home right away. All of the staff were friendly and helpful. The rooms are quite basic, but each have their own little patio with a hammock. The reception/communal area is also great for lounging around in and using the free wifi. The location is just a couple blocks off of the main road so it is totally safe to walk back to in the evenings. They also keep the front gates locked at night (but you are given a key) as well as provide as safe in the room which helps allieviate any concerns about safety and security. Our only disappointment is that we didn't discover the TREE HOUSE on the property until the day we were leaving!
