We stayed in a superior bungalow for 3 nights in April; it was the 2nd area of our stay; we chose this area as we were visiting the wonderful Sloth Sanctuary in Cahuita . Jessica is exceptionally welcoming and warm. The setting is very pretty and very friendly laid back vibe Bungalow Outside Each has a little veranda with tropical... More

Hola Karin and Tony- It was a pleasure to meet you both and thank you for the lovely detailed review! I do want to apologize for the noise of the back-hoe...we do try to keep our upgrades and repairs to when they won't bother guests, but apparently not with 100% success. We also appreciate the honest feedback! "Grotty" must be... More

Working in the hospitality industry myself it was so refreshing to stay somewhere with people who are very good at what they do. Great location Across the road from the beach and out of the busy streets of the town but easy to walk into. Loved the vibe... More

We just left today and we can't wait to go back. Marc and Jessica are wonderful hosts, not intrusive but very available when you need anything. The gardens are gorgeous, Marc's hard work has paid off, our house, Casa Pipa, was beautiful and very comfortable. We love the open Tico style and the fans kept us cool on the hottest... More

This my latest visit and it just keeps getting better. Super clean and well thought improvements combined with super service! The beach is just next door and the best there is. Definitely the place to be on the Caribbean coast in Costa Rica ! Best to make reservations early.

Jessica and Marc are two of the most gracious hosts we could have hoped for! The houses and cabins are very well maintained, clean, comfortable, and private. The hosts are a wealth of insider info- from restaurants, activities & adventures, or culture and general info abut Costa Rican life, they can tell you what you need to know! We would... More

Perfect location - quiet and feels secluded, yet steps to the beach, just a short bike ride or wonderful beach and jungle walk to bustling Puerto Viejo. Stayed at Gecko house, with wonderful breezes through the second level. So relaxed and rejuvenating with massages and acupuncture treatments! Falling to sleep to the sounds of surf and jungle every night -... More

Stay here if you want the true Costa Rican Caribe experience. friendly owners, welcoming, clean rooms/houses, safe yet you feel secluded! GO! We stayed in Casa Mariposa. No A/C, didn't need it! Hottest time of day, you are out and about, at the beach. Night is cool and comfortable. Surrounded my nature. Trip to Manzanillo is necessary! Not far at... More

If you're looking to stay somewhere that offers peace, tranquility and nature, then Caribe Town is the place for you. My boyfriend and I stayed in the honeymoon bungalow. The surrounding of lush vegetation offers privacy and plenty of wildlife to watch right from the front porch while you relax in the hammock for two. Hearing the jungle noises at... More
