If you are coming to Puerto Viejo or Cocles, this is THE place to stay. Emily and Jeremy are the new owners and they have done a wonderful job with the place. Physis is immaculate to the smallest details: soft and fragrant towels, quality sheets, nice decor, fast wifi, nicely manicured garden & relaxation area, and so on...
On top of everything there is Emily and Jeremy who are born to be the perfect hosts. They are warm & welcoming and happy and have made our stay an unforgettable one.
Thank you guys so much, we had a wonderful time!!!!!! :))))))

Nina & Pascal,
Thanks so much for the wonderful review, we totally appreciate it. We had a lot of fun with you guys. Hope the rest of your travels through Costa Rica were just as fun, along with great surfing! Thanks again to you both!

I met Jeremy and Emily when a friend and I were staying at a house nearby. They were gracious enough to give us a tour, and although we weren't staying there at the time, they opened their home to us, and helped us out with the rest of our travels.

This place is really immaculate. They have completely renovated the entire lodge--from luxury towels/linens to amazing common spaces. They also have plans to add LCD tvs for those looking for a little more modernity. Jeremy and Emily have taken care to make sure their guests are comfortable. This is one of the few places in the area that has AC, and it must be the only one that has dehumidifiers in each of the rooms. (If you think you want to rough it, spend a few hours riding your bike around. You will appreciate the respite from the heat/humidity.) They are incredibly gracious hosts, and I would recommend Physis to anyone who is in the area.

As a side note, Soda Johanna, which is next door is absolutely fabulous. Take time to talk to the owners. It is well worth your time.

I stayed at this nice facility in Cocles, CR for 10 days. Its immaculate & the owners, Jeremy & Emily are very friendly & very helpful. Everything is new with air conditioning, anti humidifier, fully functional bathrooms, Fridg. Each room comes with its own safe. It has 3 hammocks with a fountain for your relaxation outside the rooms. Its completely secure & locked down with a security guard at night. You can rent bikes for riding to Puerto Veijo for some great shopping. You can rent snorkels, masks, fins & walk across the street to the beautiful ocean. Emily will cook you a fantastic breakfast every morning & at night you can walk next door for a tasty dinner. There's 2 adventure company's that will pick you up right up from your door to go zip lining, or whatever adventure you'd prefer. There's even a fruit truck thats stops by once a week. I loved it so much I'm going back in February. Thanks for the pleasant stay Physis Caribbean

My husband and I were in Puerto Viejo and saw an advertisement for Physis. We went to it and found a young couple that had recently purchased it and were in process of renovating. They told us that they were not open yet but would give us a tour. One of the rooms was almost ready. We talked Emily and Jeremy into letting us stay for 4 nights and assured them that the mess and noise would not bother us. A air conditioner has been put in that day. While we were there Jeremy added a small refrigerator and a room safe. A store is at the end of the street to buy soda, beer etc. Another great advantage is a restaurant right next door that is delicious. Physis is a great location that you can walk or ride a bike to everything. I can not imagine anyone being disappointed in this place.

We were fortunate enough to be one of the first guests to stay after the new owners have totally remodeled the property. Our room was very clean with bright,light and colorful decor.
All the units now have a/c and the landscaping is amazing. You have the " tamed jungle beauty" all around you!
The hosts Emily and Jeremy made us wonderful breakfasts along with the fresh coffee and fruits. We spent time in town and alot of time at the beautiful beaches close by. It made it very convenient as they allowed us to rent their bicycles and snorkling gear for our daily outings.
What a fun little town with plenty of restaurants to choose from. We will definately return to this place again and we have already booked our room for the next visit. Can't wait!
