One of the prettiest bungalow type hotels I have stayed in. Beach front... so you hear the ocean roaring and rocking you to sleep. The pool is nice tucked back under amazing trees and got to see tucans flying by... one of the most amazing treats are the lotus flower gardens... speechless! The room, bedding, bathroom and amenities great. Breakfast in the terrace delicious. The service was outstanding... specially Andrey, he was always available to assure we were happy! I know some complain about the traffic noice... it didn’t bother us at all... what woke us up one morning were the howler monkeys screaming! Awesomeee! I found that for the price it is worth a longer visit See you soon Lanna Ban!
This is a boutique hotel offering breakfast only. We had one of the junior suites upstairs. The room is large and comfortable with a large balcony. The surroundings are nice. The pool is good. Only minus point, our room had no safe. We realized too late this is bed and breakfast only. There are plenty of restaurants in Puerto Viejo, but you need transportartion.
Great location, lovely rooms. Ariel in front desk was very helpful and nice. Breakfast and afternoon coffee is served at your room. Very clean swimming pool. I would say it probably needs a bit of attention when cleaning the rooms, cleaning ladies often forgot to put new towels and toiletries. Aside from that, this hotel is great.
How happy we were to find the Hotel Lanna Ban after a very lamentable accommodation experience in Puerto Viejo, Costa Rica. This small hotel with tastefully appointed cabins and well kept gardens captures a cozy Polynesian style and invites relaxation. Colorful tropical birds along with Sloths and Howler Monkeys can easily be spotted in the magnificent tall jungle trees that border the property; and the swimming pool is a welcome and refreshing activity at any time of day. Also great for children. The entire staff headed by Mr. Jimmy Arrieta, showed a cordial, helpful professionalism going beyond the call of duty, and to all guests, adding so much to our stay. We loved watching the waves crashing on the beach from the comfort of rocking chairs on our cabin’s little patio. The hotel provides a delicious and abundant breakfast of fresh tropical fruit, to-die-for croissants, perfect scrambled eggs, orange juice and plenty of Costa Rican coffee. Extra towels for the pool, cold bottles of drinking water, restaurant recommendations and anything we needed were supplied immediately and in the most friendly manner. Thank you, Hotel Lanna Ban, we enjoyed our stay very much and highly recommend a visit!…
The staff does not communicate very well. They said they would speak to the owner to see if they could refund us money. Upon arriving to the U.S. I contacted them and they said they could not refund anything. They pretty much try to take your money like all Costa Rica.
