Rustic boat dock reception. Drinks awaited us upon arrival. All staff and dogs were very friendly. Large sleeping area and bathroom. Screens only, no A/C but ceiling fan was more than adequate. Be prepared to hear howler monkeys at night. Restaurant very accommodating. Don't miss the wild bird walking into the restaurant! Lovely pool area and grounds.

Rustic (ie basic) hotel in magical setting at side of river just ten minutes river taxi ride from Tortuguero. We arrived to a friendly welcome and mocktail from Bismarck for a 2 night stay. We were quickly checked in and helped to our rooms by the friendly and helpful staff. Soft drinks and beer available from the fridge - just tell reception what you’ve taken. Free coffee available in reception too. You really feel like you’re in the rain forest with all the fabulous noises that entails day and night. The howler monkeys we saw on both days were especially noisy. Several interesting birds wandering the grounds . Our favourite place was to lie in the hammock and watch the wildlife and boats on the river. Slight disappointments preventing 5 stars were lack of safe , slow WiFi (and in reception only) and luke warm shower. We really enjoyed our stay and tried to stay for one more night but unfortunately they were fully booked.

+ points.*Quiet and good location for Tortuguero. A water-taxi ride is only $10 for a couple each way and a out 10mins away. 2. We heard Howler Monkeys around 4am - so loud and sounded like it was right outside the room. 3. Nice-ish grounds, more communal bits would be welcome. 4. Reception girl was really helpful and friendly. - points. What we think was the owner, a guy with long hair, we felt had poor customer service. Pretty arrogant and didn't say thanks for staying/ goodbye when we left pr provide key info and just pointed to where our room was. 2. Room wasn't ready upon arrival but soon sorted. 3. Food very average and buffet style which felt risky but was fine. Observations. Popular with families with young children with a pool to keep them entertained. About 3 dogs running around who were the owners and very friendly. Conclusion. Fine to stay if you want rustic away from Tortuguero. Owner needs to take customer service lessons from the girl who also works there.

If you are looking for a place in the middle of nowhere that is quite and slow paced you need not look any further. The photos are misleading or out of date. This is a great place if you want to see monkeys in the trees out side of your hotel room, and have an amazing natural jungle hotel. Pros: Hot water calm Island pace Staff can get you drinkable water Food is pretty good clean Cons: thin walls really mean ants (but not in the rooms) in progress of being built up

Arriving here is an adventure in itself as there are no roads and the only way in is by boat. The journey takes about an hour along the Rio Suerte where you can see Crocodiles and Plumed Basilisks plus a whole range of birds. On arrival we were met by the owner Bismarck who showed us to our rooms. The rooms were basic but clean. The bed was one of the highest I have ever been in. The gardens were beautiful and Baby the resident Tiger Heron was very friendly. We only ate lunch and breakfast here but it was hot and tasty. Top tip - ask Bismarck to make you a cricket from grass blades.
