Myself and 2 friends were travelling through Costa Rica and staying in Puerto Viejo for Christmas. I decided to book this hotel for the days we were there as it looked like the perfect place to kick back and enjoy our christmas. Although beautiful, I was slightly concerned when we arrived quite late in the evening, and had the 'rules' of the hotel explained to us - we weren't allowed to wear shoes in public areas of the hotel (?), and we were not allowed to hang wet beach clothes out on the balcony of our room (amougst other things). There were 3 of us, but only 2 sets of keys. We went out on Christmas eve and got seperated. I had to return home with no key and ring the bell. The owner was not pleased and told me wew would 'speak about this in the morning'! The next morning, on CHRISTMAS DAY, the owner knocked on our door at 9am and told us we had a hour to leave. I tried to reason with him but he refused to talk about it. Surely a hotel is prepared for people sometimes going out, coming in late, loosing keys - I understand that it isn't ideal - but these things do happen. I was not at all impressed with my stay here or with the treatment we received, and I found the attitude of the owners rude and precious.
