I slept here one night and got a bad eye infection from the pillow. My eye was extremely swollen. There was no blankets on the bed. They only gave us sheets. The pictures really drew me in and I really wanted to stay here. I was so excited to get there and I was let down. There were so many... More

The owner kindly moved our 4 day booking one day later when we stayed a day longer in Bocas, plus upgraded us to a great room with a 2 person tub. What made it even more special is that we were married on the last day and had that room to come back to. The owner was so helpful with... More

Stayed here 4 nights and had a great experience! The lush gardens with Jasmine, hibiscus and bougainvillea, cool pools, very helpful host (Jordan) and staff (especially Gerald) made for a relaxing time. With the rest of Puerto Viejo just outside and all the beaches to explore it's an easy destination. It's a laid back and unpretentious place. Perfect for me.

My cousin & I stayed at the Lotus Garden Inn for 4 nights and we LOVED it!! It's steps away from everything in Puerto Viejo; and yet you feel completely secluded in their private courtyard garden. It was an oasis within an oasis! :) You can literally walk across the street and shop, eat, dance or jump in the ocean,... More

We were on our way back to San Jose from Bocas Del Toro and decided to stop about halfway in Puerto Viejo. We were looking for a nice, affordable place and the Lotus Garden exceeded our expectations. We first got there and the manager showed us a baby sloth that was in one of their trees. He showed us our... More

The Lotus Garden is a true jem! It's about a 30 second walk from a beautiful beach and about a minute from the amazing town of Puerto Viejo(Lots of shopping and good food)! Our room at the Lotus Garden was very comfortable. We had air conditioning, a T.V. and a nice private bathroom. The pool is cool and refreshing. There... More

Although marketed as a Japanese inn, it is really much more Balinese. The dark, carved woodwork and steep roofs are very Indonesian. The rooms are large and comfortable. The grounds lushly planted. We had a sloth in a tree just 30 feet from our balcony. Lots of colorful birds here too. The owner is hands-on and the staff friendly &... More

Verry friendly and helpful host. Really close to the village. Breakfast was better than average you find in other hotels. Rooms are verry special. We had a great time! They had a sloth in the garden with a baby.
