We booked online and granted, our connection in San Jose did not work out so our first night was refunded without question, I will give them that.
Advertised as a 5 minute walk from town, it's actually about 15 minutes. It was also advertised as having bikes to use however "there are only two and one is broken", so this was not helpful - another important factor in Puerto Viejo where bikes are a must.
The wifi did not work the entire time we were there and we were told "oh it comes and goes."
There was very rarely anyone around in the house across the road (the "reception") to ask any questions or speak to anyone about pool towels or calling a cab.
When we checked in (4pm) our room was not ready and the cleaner shuffled us out, we only saw one other room being used in the entire complex so found it difficult that it could not be ready!
The rooms were extremely hot with very little opportunity to open any windows which in accommodation in the Caribbean without air con is a must!
Not good value for money, stay closer to town somewhere if you're going to pay this price!!
