“Basic rooms, but excellent atmosphere!”
Reviewed December 23, 2012 via mobile

We really enjoyed our stay at Blue Conga! The tours Pierre offers are a super nice experience and really make a difference.
The room was nothing special though and the shower could use some thoroughly (chlorine) cleaning, but that said, we found the service really unique! Thanks a lot!

We stayed there 2 days and they were really great.
Marise and Pierre are very helpful and give excellent advice.
Road to place from San Jose takes 4 hours as you cannot speed.
Had very nice food there.

After weeks of traveling through Panama we made our way towards Puerto Viejo Costa Rica.
We were looking for a specific hotel but on our way to that hotel we found The Blue Conga.

We saw a couple staying in one of the rooms and asked about the price. The man told us, "Take it! It's good !"
We went into the reception and I understood why the man would give us such a straightforward advice.
We were welcomed with a smile by Marise, and later on by Pierre and we felt right at home. They are some of the nicest hosts Ive ever seen run a hotel. They are passionate about their lives and you can see it in the way they prepare breakfast, how they speak about the people, the parks, and their lives in puerto viejo. The hotel is quiet, surrounded by trees, the rooms are cosy with tasteful details.
We stayed in quite a few hotels before coming to Puerto Viejo, some hosts have long faces, and treat you like they are only after your money.
It makes all the difference in the world when you are greeted with a smile.
Highly recommended.

We found this hotel trough Tripadvisor and were welcomed by Pierre and Marise, a french-canadian couple who runs the place. The hotel is situated in a calm spot, surrounded by nature and the cosy exotique swimmingpool only adds to the feeling of being in the middle of an oasis of calm and tranquility. The only thing we heared at night was an occasional hotelguest who came home a little late, all the rest were pure sounds of nature. You wake up by screams of monkeys, singing birds, the wind in the trees... Magical! Breakfast consists of fresh fruit, eggs, sausages and sometimes a crepe with nutella and bananas inside. Yum yum. You can rent bikes and snorkeling gear for a low price.

The rooms are more than ok for the price you pay per night, but what makes this whole hotelexperience my best ever, is the enthousiasm of the hosts. Pierre took us out to explore nature on several occasions and he made our trip so much more than we could have imagined and hoped for. Not only did he teach us how to spot (and tease) different kind of monkeys, how to find snakes, tucans, pelicans, caymans, sloths and so on, but he and Marise helped us to choose the best restaurants, book our trip further, make us super sweet deals, and much more.

If there were a price for the best host of the Caribbean coast, they would get it.

One word. Awesome! This beautiful place is not only paradise but the owners, Pierre and Marisse, were the perfect hosts!

From the delicious breakfast Pierre makes every morning, to their enthusiasm and invitations to go on day trips, to the great pool, and rooms, we were so impressed and so happy there. They accommodated our little family so well (we had a toddler in tow) and spoiled the little one. Their two dogs, Conga and Perlita, were endless entertainment. Our rooms were a great size (ours had a king size bed, with two bunk beds, and the crib). The shower is spacious. Don't look for a tv here. (Really, why would you even need one? You are in paradise. Go play outside!) While there is no air conditioning, there was a fan in our room which was sufficient. Housekeeping was prompt and great! The breakfast area/lounge and pool we all totally fell in love with. And the views...absolutely beautiful. The hotel is at a reasonable distance from the center of town and other beaches. We were able to walk to most places in 8-10 minutes.

We really could not have asked for better and more caring hosts and such a chill, yet beautiful place to stay. We are definitely coming back! Thank you, Pierre and Marisse! Merci pour tout et a bientot!

I can't say enough wonderful things about our stay at the Blue Conga. The host and hostess are the best I've ever encountered. Marise and Pierre ran the hotel while the owners were out of town. Marisse accommodated our every need from hooking up snorkeling gear to serving breakfast. Pierre took time out of his day to take us on a unique, personal tour of the area. He walked us through the park and showed us more animals and critters than one could see in a zoo! He even took us on a hike where we could see a beautiful rock formation and took pictures for us. He also worked it out for us to take a hike to a waterfall with a local/indigenous boy. We were privileged to meet this boy's family as well. We felt like Pierre and Marise treated us like friends.

I would recommend this hotel to anyone and I would go back again to stay there and to see Marise and Pierre.
