“Miss this place!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 25, 2013

It's like my home away from home! I've spent many vacations with Vera @ Jacaranda, she has created a lovely, beautiful, comfortable and very reasonably priced place to welcome visitors of Puerto Viejo. It's right in the heart of the town but it's quiet and feels like its own little oasis. I can't wait to get back for another visit.

4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 27, 2013

Quiet, great location really close to all the shops and bars. The place is really quiet, the only noise you'll hear it's the birds singing in the morning. Rooms are really cute, with mosquito nets on beds. The only thing that didn't thrill me (and that's the reason for the 4 stars) is the fact that walls are really thin so you can kind of hear a little bit of what's happening around you -- not loads of privacy!! But showers are really great, very spacious and sinked in nature. Really nice, prices are reasonable and staff really kind too. There's also a lovely cat in the reception area. And a kitchen, too. Worth the money.

A lovely little hotel away from the busy main road of Puerto Viejo. I had a room up some stairs with a veranda and picturesque view from the shuttered window. The hotel has been designed with lots of greenery and places to sit and relax, the paths have been made out of pretty mosaic tiles. There is free Wifi by reception, the hotel doesn't offer any food however Bread and Chocolate is just down the road and lots of other restaurants close by. No AC but a decent ceiling fan made the nights comfortable enough.

Only stayed here for one night as we already had reservations for 4 nights somewhere else...it was lovely..nice friendly staff, clean rooms and great location away from the main drag.
Would definitely stay here again.

My friend and I came up on a shuttle from a stay in Bocas del Toro. Panama. We had no reservations and our driver recomended Jacaranda Hotel. They only had one room for the night,with a single and double bed. The rooms were clean and comfortable, great shower with lots of hot water and TV and good fan that kept us cool. The next day they had a cancelation so we were able to keep the room for two more nights. The lady who owns the place was great and there whenever we needed some advise etc. She and staff were great and real hard workers keeping the gardens beautiful and well manicured. It was very quiet. There are two tables isolated from the rooms, in the garden, for smokers. They also have some suites that are available for longer stays at a resonable price, which she gave us a tour of. While waiting for our shuttle to San Jose, she gave us some cold refreshments. We also enjoyed the hammock on our porch I would definetly stay here again.

Room Tip: We had room 7

This place is awsome! I have stayed here for 10 days ! The garden is gorgeous, and even a number of species (crab, raptiles) are living in the garden. The decoration is also charming and inspiring! The place is quite, as it is little bit back of the town, but also very close to everything in the town. The staff is also super duper kind, and good hearted. + even the price is cheap! It is fabulous. When I come back to Puerto Viejo, I will definitely stay here again !!! Here is no swimming pool, and no fitness facility. but don't warry. Puerto Viejo will provide you with that.

When I came to Puerto Viejo the first time for a week visit, I was directed to Jacaranda Hotel and Jungle Garden and I've been here ever since.
In a world filled with confusion, this retreat gives you time to breathe, recuperate, and enjoy nature everywhere around you. AND..you are within walking distance of all major attractions, restaurants, swimming holes and shopping so you don't even need a car. For a low-cost, comfortable place to stay, I highly recommend Jacaranda.

Room Tip: Always stay in an inside room where it is quieter. If you don't love the sun (or do), check to s...
