This was the perfect place to stay in puerto viejo, it's close enough in town for everything, but a block off the main road which makes it peaceful and relaxing. After partying every night in puerto viejo we loved being able to come back a crash in quiet place. The rooms are comfy and super spacious, no A/C, but the... More

I think that Costa Rica, in general, it's more expensive than the rest of Central America. This place was the best value for money that I found. Clean and nice. It's managed by the owners. They were very friendly and helpful with us.

Great place, small and cozy, very comfortable surroundings, but the best part is its location, in the jungle but two blocks from the action of Puerto Viejo, close to a cut in the coral we call the swimming pool because it is always flat water and a sandy bottom, great for families, tons of restaurants and bars just a few...

We had a lovely room with a shared bathroom. The staff was very friendly. The only downsides were that our shower did not have the advertised hot water and they did not serve breakfast (it says they do on their website).

Thoroughly enjoyed our stay! Located just off of the main road, the hotel is warm, welcoming and friendly. Great value for money, we stayed in a double room with private bathroom - shower was always hot and strong, towels and bedding changed very regularly. Mosquito net provided along with hammock outside on the balcony.

You cannot use The kitchen anymore because it is their kitchen now. The place is full with toys which belongs to their childrens. They discuss personal... More

With good prices, clean rooms, and friendly staff, Cabinas Monte Sol was a great place to stay at. They respectfully accommodated requests for additional sheets and towels and made an effort to make us feel welcomed and appreciated. The whole place has a peaceful and friendly atmosphere and we never had any problems with noise. I realized after leaving that... More

Overall, enjoyed my stay at Cabinas Monte Sol. The reception area was rarely occupied and posted hours were not followed. It was hard to reach the hotel with a question, whether in-person, by telephone, or by email. Booked a room with 2 twin beds and received a room with 1 double. Lastly...wifi is advertised...but the wifi never worked. For an... More

It was a decent place/pretty cool/away from main drag but close to everything. Very Tranquil. Only odd thing was that there was no real consierge, and the woman who was available to help kind of just sat around and the "kitchen" area where they used to serve meals now acts as a second kitchen for the family who owns the...

Cabinas monte sol is not in the middle of the centre from puerto viejo. It is quiet. Although, the owner had two dogs and they start to bark early in the morning. Oud room was basic, which was fine. We don't need anything more luxury. Unfortunately, There was a nasty smell in our room. Not fresh at all. Most of... More
