After a long day of traveling you may be interested in taking a shower…unfortunately we weren’t afforded that luxury. If more than two different showers in the hotel were running at the same time, they didn’t work. When they did work, it was low pressure and super cold. There was air conditioning, though, which was a plus. The restaurant below... More

We stayed here thinking it would be nice to not have to worry about making the 11:30a boat taxi to Drake Bay, but instead we were worried about our safety once here. As soon as we showed up and were checking in, we were stared at by some questionable and rowdy locals drinking beer at the Perla del Sur restaurant... More

Great people, very helpful and the base for La Perla tours which is listed separately. You can arrive in the morning have lunch and book your tours and be off on a boat in the afternoon. Friendly knowledgeable guides. Rooms are basic but clean, comfortable and with wifi in the restaurant. Food is good. The people are great.

We left our iphone charging at the restaurant and a local woman took it. Don Jorge knew this person and got it back for us. His people are amazing! We left our car with them for 3 nights and had lunch there twice. The food was delicious and the bathroom was clean (VERY important when traveling with kids who don't... More

There are three restaurants in Sierpe and Oleaje's is the busiest with foreigners. Oleaje's is the hub for tourism in Sierpe and the restaurant can be hectic when there's more than one tour leaving. There is free wifi but it often isn't working. The riverside seating is open-air with concrete benches & tables (not the most comfortable, especially if it's... More

Right next door for catching the boat to the park in the morning (which never leaves remotely on time!). You can leave your car in the secure car park along the road for a small daily fee while you're away. Staff were friendly and spoke minimal English. Air con in room which was a nice surprise and good wifi in... More

What a surprise. Good rate, clean and the AC works. The food was very good and our host Jorge was friendly and helpful. We had some drinks, dinner and could not be happier with the price or service. Understand it is not a resort. It's a good place to stay, eat and head on to Drake Bay, which is what... More

Basic clean rooms with air conditioning at a good rate. Breakfast, excellent coffee and Internet connection are included with a view to the river. The restaurant offers good food at a reasonable price. The small but well trained staff tries very hard to make you feel at home; they even provided mosquito repellant at the tables and have a guard... More

What a lucky find! I had seen some older mixed reviews of this place, but wanted to check it out when I got to Sierpe. It had been taken over by an experienced hospitality entrepreneur only three days before. I got a great deal, the room was just fine and they threw in breakfast for the bargain price of $20... More

Nice air conditioned and clean rooms at a very reasonable rate. Beautiful restaurant with on the river. Helpful staff! Make sure you make your reservations directly with the hotel website, hoteloleajesereno.com. DO NOT use Discovery Travel World to book your room!!!
