“Comfort and feel-home”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 11, 2014

A lovely place and well-managed.
Nice and clean bungalows, comfortable beds
The location -surrounded bij jungle- is superb; close to the beach and easy going without the noise of Puerto Viejo itself.
The owners Jessica and Marc understand the traveler's wishes and make you feel at home.
whatever it is you wish, they will try an do their best to help you. (even if you are feeling ill:).
The enthusiasm of running their b&b shows and you will have a good time and feel at home. Good people! If you are looking for a big resort this is not your place, but if you want to avoid the bigger resorts..this is your place.

We spent 3 nights in this place in house. Everything was super. House is big, kitchen full equiped. Jessica and Mark are very good and ready to help. Beach is 50 m from house. If I will be in future in Puerto Viejo, I will stay only there.

We had a short visit to Puerto Viejo and stayed one night at Caribe Town. We loved the place, it was clean, quiet, and the setting was oh so tropical. Cute bunglows with lush green plants and trees along the walk ways, just beautiful. Jessica greeted us with a warm welcome and the ambience of the place was relaxing and laid back. We did not want to leave and seriously considered staying but we were on a tight schedule and had to leave before breakfast the next day. As soon as we were on the road, we start planning when we would come back. That is how impressed we were.

The rooms were clean and accurate, attitude superb and also the location is nice. The sea is just across the street. Maybe I would have cleaned the therritory more as I got the feeling of national park (with no permit to pick up any fallen leave) while walking from room to room. But anyway, it was nice to be there. Recommend. We took a bikes and cycled a bit around the town and it seemed that we have made the best hotel choice in there.

This was my boyfriend & I's first trip to Costa Rica, and we decided on Caribe Town based on the reviews. We booked the family suite, and were very happy with the accommodations.
Here were our experiences with the following:

Marc & Jessica: what a lovely couple! We were greeted immediately upon arrival, and they were both very friendly and helpful. We had some questions about tours/things to do/places to eat in the area, and Jessica was very knowledgeable and recommended some great places. They also will make you a great breakfast - eggs, toast & homemade jam, local chorizo and fresh tropical fruits. Of course, there is also coffee!

The place: has very home-y feel. It has a bar, salt water pool and a common area you can chill out in. The pool was refreshing for a quick dip, and whenever we wanted a beverage all we had to do was ask. There is also a communal kitchen to use (if you are not staying in a cabin with its own), with dishes and everything you need. We ended up buying a few things, and it was nice to have a place to put them. You can also rent bikes if you'd like, as many of the locals use them for transportation.

Our room: was very clean, and the a/c kept the temperature very pleasant. We were able to access the wifi from here, which was an added bonus. The bathroom was also very clean, and we had no issue with water temperature after Jessica explained how it worked.

The area: is very nice. There are plenty of local restaurants (or "sodas") to eat at, as well as a phenomenal animal rescue right down the road. Check it out! Puerto Viejo is 3 km down the road, where you can catch a good meal/surf/shop/people watch. If you have the time, there is a Sloth Sanctuary 30 km away that is also well worth a visit.

We plan on visiting Costa Rica again, and we will definitely be staying here.

First of all: Mark and Jessica are doing a really good job and they are super kind.
I went there with my two chihuahuas and it was perfect for them too!!
I rented the new bungalow and it's fantastic. Beautifully finished. All wood. Beautiful kitchen. Nice bathroom. Comfortable mattress. All perfectly clean. The breakfast ok.
It's really well situated just in front of a fantastic beach. Near a lot of other awesome beaches, good restaurants and a beautiful wildlife rescue center.
I will definitely come back!!!!
Totally recommended!
Espero de verlos pronto!
Un saludo de Manuela and Kris
