We had planned to stay 14 days in VIP Hotel, but when we got to Puerto Viejo and saw how rough the sea was we changed our plans, since it was not possible to bathe in the sea with kids - we hardly dared ourselves. We had obviously not researched properly about the Caribbean coast this time of year, so... More

I spent a fantastic holiday with my wife. It's a very good place to holiday and....to live as well. We really enjoyed our stay because of the idyllic beaches and landcaspes nearby. The hotel staff was also great. We'll return to Playa Negra very soon.

First of all, the hotel's staff is wonderful. Their service is outstanding. Rooms are nice decorated y very clean as well. After the excursions we did, we had a swim at the swimming pool. Everything is exotic and I really recommend it.

precious house. The big houses were pretty. Very well decorated. I enjoyed my holidays so much. Mariam´the owner is a great host. She invited us to a barbecue the last day of our holidays there. I also love the swimming pool. It has a gym in the garden. I love working at the gym near the frogs. Cheers.

Nice place to recover energies from the daily routine. It was my first there inCosta Rica and I received a good impression from both the country and the hotel. The staff people are very kind and I enjoyed the holidays with my girlfriend in a peaceful atmosphere.

This hotel is clean and safe. However, the kitchen lacked some basic equipment and the lighting is poor. The pool is nice and the casitas are comfortable. In general, I don't recommend this for more than a 2-3 night stay. The owner was quite rude to me when I explained that I preferred to pay using PayPal as Moneygram was... More

We were very happy with the pool and the location was great for bird watching and seeing monkeys and sloths. The gardens are beautiful and I enjoyed looking in the frog pond each night for different frogs. The... More
