Hotel Blue Conga
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed February 3, 2014

Writing this review from the thatched roofed poolside pavilion on our last day at Blue Conga, it saddens me to go. My girlfriend and I had a wonderful time here and Eric was a gracious and helpful host. This place is quaint and secluded but still very much in the center of things. Relaxation at its finest and excellent value. Be sure to check out the Jaguar Rescue Center which is only a few kilometers away. Hands down the best excursion of our trip to Costa Rica.

We only stayed for one night and thought it was overpriced. We had a room on the garden level and it was below average (not even a fan on the ceiling) the hotel did provide a stand alone fan but wasn't as effective. The bathroom was in need of some serious TLC and the shower didn't drain properly......the gentleman who checked us in was nice and they did pack us a breakfast despite our very early departure. If we had paid less it might have been ok but I've stayed at hostels in Costa Rica that were nicer and cheaper. The bed was hard and not terribly comfortable, maybe the upper balcony rooms are better but this one was in need of a renovation...good location but for the money I'd stay somewhere else . We won't book here again.

Francesca thank you, your review will be very useful for us and for our customers.
Staying one night, you have an estimate of the delivery room "standard". It is true that they are the oldest part of the hotel and very different from the superior rooms. They need renovation but we can not repeat the architecture. We think. Blue Conga collects his reviews for its environment and atmosphere. We agree to accept the standard rooms are expensive for what they are. However, it is part of a whole must remain consistent with our customers.

This is paradise! My hunny and I just spent 5 nights at Blue Conga and it wasn't long enough. This is the perfect place to stay in Puerto Viejo. If you are like my husband and I and are looking for a place close to the sea with a comfortable bed, spacious and clean room, great breakfast, and relaxing pool area then this is the place to be. It's only a 2 minute bike ride out of the main part of Puerto Viejo (nice and quiet but still close to everything you need) and 3 minutes bike ride to the nearest beach, Playa Cocles, which is great for boogie boarding, surfing, or just lying on the lovely soft sand.
I'd highly recommend this hotel to anyone travelling in Puerto Viejo. The atmosphere is so chill, just like the owner, Eric, and it is very obvious how proud
he is of his little piece of paradise. All of the staff were friendly and helpful. The young man who made breakfast in the morning made FANTASTIC coffee! I looked forward to waking up early and having a coffee on my balcony, enjoying the scenery. It was a sad day having to leave Blue Conga! Stay here and try to get room #11 if you can!

We spend two nights here and had a great time. We loved the enthusiasm of the French owner about the country and all it has to offer. Nice rooms, beautiful pool and garden and lovely breakfast and friendly staff. It's in a quite area of Puerto Viejo but still a short walk to the centre and the beaches.

Very simple accommodations, however - it has all that you need. I would not mind the airconditioner, as a couple of nights were hot and humid, and the fan was not doing it...Overall great atmosphere, would not trade it off. The owner, Eric, was very accommodative, gave great recommendations, helped to make reservations. We were planning to go somewhere else after 3 nights, but decided to extend our stay - stayed a total of 5 nights. BlueConga really helpped to embrace Puerto Viejo!

The Blue Conga was my favorite hotel of our entire stay in Costa Rica. My daughter and I booked all our vacation hotels online, so it was an adventure! We landed in a couple of really neat places and one sketchy place. Every place had one thing in common, we never knew where we were going and dirt roads were involved. So when our gps told us to turn right down yet another unpaved road after a long drive, we all got the giggles and said oh no, here we go again! Then we pulled into the Blue Conga driveway and Erik was there to greet us and we all did the fist pump thing and said YES!

The Blue Conga is a little piece of paradise in Puerto Viejo. The beautiful pool, thatched roofed common room for breakfast and hanging out, clean spacious room with mosquito netted beds and a hammock on our balcony, and a great location combined to make our last leg of our vacation perfect. It is located just south of town, an easy walk to all the action. Although there is no AC in the rooms, they are all screened and fanned and we had no problem sleeping at all. Besides, who is in their rooms in the middle of the day when there's a beautiful beach just down the road or a sweet little pool downstairs?

Room had a refrigerator to keep our water and beer cold, wifi, and a safe for passports and money. Bed was comfy and linens were fresh and nice. Bathroom was clean and nice. Erik, the owner, was so nice! We really enjoyed him.

If, no WHEN, we return to Puerto Viejo, we will definitely come back.

The room was clean and nice. There where breakfast included served in a nice dining area outside under a roof next to the swimming pool. The staff was very friendly and helpful. You can rent bikes directly at the hotel, bikes are the preferred transportation for exploring the surroundings. We would definitely visit this hotel again!
