PV is intensely unintense, so one needs a retreat like the friendly, comfy, coffeed Guarana Hotel. We found it clean and safe as well as lush and colorful and reasonable. Met interesting folks including the Italian owner. The location is quiet but convenient. How do I get back?

The stay was very relaxing and comfortable. It rained most of the time we were there, but that was alright, as the lobby is set up for study or being on the internet. The room was clean, and being able to use the kitchen anytime I needed was great. I am an early riser, so I was able to have... More

We arrived in Puerto Viejo without any plans, and we stumbled across this lovely little hotel. We were very pleasantly surprise. Once you enter the courtyard it is almost like you have been transported into the middle of the jungle. All of the rooms are situated around this lovely courtyard and from our little veranda we couldn't see another sole.... More

My husband and I had the pleasure of staying at this wonderful hotel for 9 nights in January 2010. We were greeted by Alma the friendliest receptionist ever and felt at home immediately. The staff was eager to help with planning excursions or calling a cab. The rooms were kept more than clean and you felt great about the hotels... More

I was pleasantly surprised by how charming this place was because the price was so reasonable. The reception area has been beautifully done by the owner and is very inviting. The rooms are very bright and large with very clean bathrooms. What really makes this place though are the people who run it. Everyone who works there are courteous and... More

Simple rooms set in tropical gardens which provide some privacy from other guests while providing a pretty outlook while relaxing on your verandah. Rooms are kept very clean as well as community areas & shared kitchen. Complimentary coffee & free wifi in the lobby. Good location easy access to town but far enough away to ensure a tranquil setting. The... More

Cabinas Guarana is the best place we've stayed on our entire trip. The staff has been incredibly helpful booking tours, helping us get around town, even helping us to get our money back after a tour company gave us the wrong pickup time. The place is beautifully decorated with mosaics made by one of the owners. Both of the owners... More

I can't say much about this hotel because I never really got to stay there. What I can say is that I wouldn't trust them and I don't recommend them. I made a reservation several months ahead of my visit. And we drove for 8 hours to get to this hotel on Christmas Eve night. When we got there, someone... More
