#20 of 155 Specialty lodging in Puerto Viejo de Talamanca
The Door is Always Open at Kaya's Place... Kaya's Place is a 26 room lodge on the stunning Black Beach in Puerto Viejo, Costa Rica. Built in the Afro-Caribbean "Rustico" style, the hotel is artistic and unique. Local woods and materials have been used in their natural state, making each room different and beautiful. Every space you encounter will be a pleasurable experience. The sound of the waves is always in the background, soothing and tranquil, guaranteed to take you away from the stress of everyday life. Inside the hotel, you will find many places to relax. The reception area is more like a living room, with a gigantic sofa, television, people to chat with and view of the ocean. The large deck upstairs has a wonderful ocean view with hammocks and sofas - perfect for reading or taking a siesta. In the back, gardens line the walkway, filled with local plants and flowers. A covered sitting area in the garden offers another opportunity to meet and enjoy the company of others while you stay with us. Our restaurant is spacious and open with view of the ocean and a small creek with fish, water lilies, crab and other water life. Located in Puerto Viejo on the Caribbean Coast, the area is blessed with natural beauty in the form of dense jungle with impressive flora and fauna and some of the world's most beautiful beaches. Kaya's Place is part of the growing eco-tourism industry that supports the preservation of almost 2 million square meters of primary rainforest. Taxes from this industry support the many national reserves and efforts to maintain the natural resources. We are dedicated to preserving these resources while sharing it with all the people that come to know this amazingly beautiful part of Costa Rica. Our recent renovation of Kaya's Place was completed with the same philosophy. No lumber or materials were taken from the primary rainforest. Much was recycled wood or dead fall from local farms and lumber that had washed up from the ocean and rivers. With these natural and renewable materials, we achieved a unique character with rustic and artistic designs. Also all the walls are painted by hand, with many details and awesome drawings. BE OUR ECO-GUEST Our Door is Always Open at Kaya's Place - We Hope to See You Soon!

If you’re looking for American food while visiting Costa Rica, this is the place. We had the ribs, grilled veggies, mashed sweet potatoes and onion rings. All were good. Nicely sized portions, craft beers and fun atmosphere. Bands every Sunday night.

Stopped off for lunch while walking along the beach at Playa Negra. Wide (& strong) craft beer selection. Great menu - all freshly prepared. Delicious ceviche & lovely shrimp sandwich. Worth stopping - good atmosphere & very clean.

We visited Kaya's Place twice while in Puerto Viejo. The first time because my husband wanted to sample their craft brews. There are some decent brews on tap, which meant we needed to visit a second time! We had dinner there, pizza, beer and wine. The pizza was very good and really hit the spot, something filling with a variety of meat. The beers were good and the wine was acceptable. When we left, my husband left his credit card. The restaurant called the taxi and they actually brought us the card. Maybe we should have gone back to get it because when my husband stepped out of the taxi, he stepped into a a hole, fell and took a huge chunk of flesh out of his leg (20+stitches) and broke a bone in his foot! But, what restaurant calls and tells you you left your card there, let alone brings it to you? Excellent! It's a fun place to visit. Just a note to the guy at the bar who was an Oregon Duck...the Huskies own the series 60-47, and they'll beat the Ducks next year. Count on it!

Great tasting crafts beers, and good selection. And I highly recommend the filthy fries! πŸ˜‹πŸŸπŸ» Nice location across the street from the beach, and staff is always friendly too. If you can make it there on a Sunday, they offer free BBQ with purchase of beers. And live music!
