“fantastic place!”
Reviewed January 23, 2012

Stayed here during Christmas and the New Year's. We couldn't have been at a better place! Jerremy and Emily are the best hosts for a perfect stay. Nice rooms, clean sheets, fresh towels, lovely garden with relaxing hammocks, great bike and boogie board rental. They will tell you everything about where to go and what to see...and will even take you there!

Nice coffee and breakfast in the morning. Great tucan spotting from the balcony.
( only for early birds!)

Will certainly go back to this place again!

Thank you so much for our stay!
We miss you guys!

We were lucky enough to stumble across Physis on B&B world so were lucky enough to spend the last part of our Costa Rican vacation in their capable hands. This property has been newly renovated to provide all the comforts of home as well as blending into the beauty of it's natural surroundings perfectly. We woke to Howler monkeys and toucans before enjoying Emily's wonderful coconut rum pancakes and syrup, did I mention the coconut rum! Then we made the 5 minute walk to the beach for some fun and lounging in the sun followed by a leisurely bike ride to town on the nice new bikes available for rent. Does this sound like an advertisement for Physis? We could not have been more pleased and will head straight back the next time we venture to Costa Rica.

Room Tip: This B & B only sleeps 8 and all 4 rooms are wonderful!

This is the perfect Puerto Viejo location- Cocles is quiet and close to the main town without being too close. They have GREAT bikes to rent if you need to get into town. It's the best of both worlds here: Costa Rican style and beauty with the level of service and amenities that Americans are used to. The rooms are well worth the price especially considering the meticulous care taken to keep guests comfortable and accommodate any guests needs. Jeremy and Emily make you feel like personal house guests rather than just customers. AND they have two of the sweetest dogs I've ever met. Gizmo should be a permanent mascot for the place! I can't say enough about this little B&B. I'm already trying to get a trip together to return to Costa Rica and they will be the first people I contact regarding accommodations.

Room Tip: Go for the Terra Room- they call it the Honeymoon Suite. It is adorable and detached from the rest o...

Emily and Jeremy are lovely hosts, who do everything to give you a good time on the Caribbean coast. Location is great, because you are in the middle of Cahuita and Manzanillo. Good, clean rooms, warm water and airco. Just do it!

If you are looking to stay anywhere near Peurto Viejo you should absolutely check this place out. The owners are extremely nice and helpful. This Bed and Breakfast is located in Cocles which is a little beach town just outside of Puerto Viejo. Only a 10 minute beautiful bike ride to town.The landscaping and decor at Physis is elegant and tropical. Bike rentals are available for guests and the beach is right down the road.

Room Tip: If you have more money than your average traveler, there is a beautiful suite located in the back. I...

If you are looking for a great place to stay in the Puerto Viejo area, I would wholeheartedly recommend Physis. Ideally situated just far enough away from the crush of PV, it is nestled in charming Cocles, not far from its lovely and relatively secluded beach. Physis is an oasis of calm and comfort. Appointed with beautiful, varnished, lattice woodwork features, a compact layout, and a small but beautiful tropical garden teeming with bromeliads, Physis is a tasteful and impressive B&B in every respect.

The real treasures here, though, are your hosts Jeremy and Emily, a young couple from California who are kind, sincere, generous and genuinely interested in providing the best possible service they can. They haven't skimped on details (sheets, towels, etc., are all top quality), and they gladly entertain any request to help you do and experience what you want in the area, whether it be seeing toucans, showing you around Puerto Viejo, or connecting you with operators of local attractions. Peripheral services like bicycle and boogie board rentals, laundry, free wifi, etc., are all excellent.

Highly recommended and deserving of all five stars!

Room Tip: The detached cabina offers the most privacy, is spacious, and is definitely the choice pick.
