We did not book any hotel in Puerto Viejo, but arrived very late in the evening - stupid thing to do, but this hotel was open during the night, so that's a big plus.
Another big plus is that it is very very close to the beach - you just have to cross the street.
Breakfast was really nice and good, the pool was a little bit dirty, but overall - nice.
We stayed in a room without air conditioning the first night. In the morning, we took one with AC, that was worth a few dollars, because it was SO extremely hot.
The furniture is made of wood - smells a little, but that's ok, no wonder in this climate.
Close to the "city" and everything you need to see.
I would recommend this hotel to tourists on a budget, not too cheap but affordable.
Go to Cahuita if you can, very beautiful there!
