After a long and stressful drive from San Jose we were welcomed by Marise and stepped into paradise, made every second of negotiating SJ traffic worth it. The gardens are spectacular and the accommodation so perfect. We stayed in the Blue Cottage which was just great. Plenty of space, lots of equipment if you wanted to cater for yourself and...

We (2 adults and a baby) stayed 8 days with Marise and Pierre and couldn't have been happier. This was by far the best hotel / B&B we stayed at during our 8 weeks travel in Costa Rica. The guesthouse is located right at Playa Negra in a lush beautiful tropical garden with a very pretty pool area. The owners...

A splendid destination choice. Everything way above par, plus exquisite landscape maintenance. Pamper yourself and order one of their remarkable breakfast selections at least! Worth a photo indeed... This hotel is located on the tranquil side of the Caribbean, but easily accessible to all the activities for which the Puerto Viejo area is noted, absent the congestion and noise.

What an amazing place and directly across from the beach! Hidden behind a secure private fence, you step into a secret jungle garden around a pool. The apartments are tucked into the garden giving privacy and quiet to the guests. Our downstairs corner room with it's own patio was wonderful - spacious, quiet, with small kitchenette for coffee in a.m....
