“WOW”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 13, 2012

We originally were booked for Banana Azul and they were booked so we were told to try here. It was better than we could have ever imagined! Michel is an amazing host, very helpful and caring. The room was nice,clean, and it was VERY private. Delicious breakfast on the beach (with his dog Zena by our side hanging out), caring staff and an unforgettable locale. We will definitely be returning!

We stayed at the Casita on our honeymoon and loved every second of it.

Michel was extremely helpful in almost all aspects of our trip. He gave us a lot of recommendations for things to do in the area and made sure that everything was as expected and up to par.

Casa Las Brisas is nice because it is more homey feeling that your typical resort. You get the peace and quite of being away from a resort but with the comfort of having one that is affiliated with Casa Las Brisas right next door (Banana Azul). Casa Las Brisas has at most 6-8 people staying there at a time, 3 rooms. So even when it is full, it is still extremely quite and relaxing. Even at the resort next door, it still seemed nice and relaxed. The beach that you can walk on to get to town was nice because it felt like your own private beach.

All in all, I laying in a hammock reading books while drinking from a coconut. Would definitely book this place again.

Thanks again for a memorable honeymoon!

On a trip with my dad, we were moved from Banana Azul to Las Brisas and no regrets. Best host, best coffee served on the beach and ideal view in the morning. For those who expect a five star hotel in Puerto Viejo, turn around, for those who want calm, nice service and to be a few steps away from the beach without the fuss, this is it.

After traveling for a week in central and western Costa Rica, chillin on the Caribbean side was a welcome improvement to an already amazing trip. I can't imagine anywhere better than Casa de las Brisas, and the warm, genuine, and helpful company of Michel and Wilbur. My husband and I were on our honeymoon, and these guys really made us feel like that was something special. Michel knows where to send you to eat, what to do, and he engenders an awesome sense of calm. The place is simple, quiet, clean, and in a beautiful location. We planned 2 nights, and stayed for 5.

The Casita at Casa Las Brisas on Black Beach outside of Puerto Viejo is the perfect place to stay for a relaxing, affordable beach getaway. It's the best of both worlds in that you have access to all the amenities at the larger resort Banana Azul (100 yards away) and the privacy and relaxation of a quaint cabin on its own along the beach. Host Michel is top notch in every way and you will feel safe throughout your stay. Breakfast on the beach and a rest in the hammocks was ideal. Highly recommend for couples or solo. You will also love Michel's trusted dog Zeena who will fast become your beach buddy.

Room Tip: Can't go wrong with any of them

My husband and I stayed here for 5 days for part of our honeymoon. It was so amazing! It is right on the beach and you can actually see the water from the window in the Casita. Miehel and Wilbur were so wonderful. Our every need was taken care of, often before we knew we needed anything. We were served breakfast on the beach on this awesome table made of cut logs every morning. It was just the two of us, even though the lodge was full! Breakfast was always wonderful and included lots of fresh fruit. The coffee was sooo good! On the day we left we had to leave before breakfast and Miehel made us coffee as soon as he hear us get up, then packed us snacks for our trip to San Jose! I could go on and on, but you should stay here. It was wonderful and I would go back again in a heartbeat!

My wife and I came here for our honeymoon in September. We stayed in the "Casita" separate from the home for 5 nights. We loved our stay there. Michel was an amazing host and we had a great time spending late afternoons with him. The location is perfect. You can hear the waves when you wake up and the town is very close by. The breakfast on the beaches were great too. Lots of fresh fruit and fresh baked goods. Having access to Banana Azul's ammenities was also a plus. It gave you that many extra things while still being able to stay at a quieter style accommodation.
