This place is phenomenal. It's very cozy and comfortable and accommodates everyone, from young and single, families or older people. The breakfast is delicious and the staff are very helpful and friendly. You will enjoy the spacious rooms, comfortable beds, views, and the pool as well. It was very nice to travel and still feel the comfort of a home. This experience was awesome and the hotel accommodations made it an even more enjoyable stay. I loved everything about this place and will definitely stay there during my next visit!

Although the hotel was clean and the location was in a quiet area, it was our least favorite overnight on this trip. The mattresses are extremely hard and the pillows are unusually lumpy. I am not real particular about these things normally, but was glad to see morning come this time. Is a distance from town so no restaurants close by that we saw

Nous sommes en procédure de changer les literies qui effectivement restent un point faible pour quelques chambres.
Je ne valide pas l'absence de restaurants proches, car il en existe beaucoup et ils sont relatés dans d'autres avis.
La plupart de nos mauvaises évaluations viennent de personnes qui ne restent que le temps d'une nuit. Nous devons reconsidérer ce point afin d'améliorer notre accueil de tres court terme.
Merci de votre intervention

The first night we arrived Eric greeted us with what I could see was a troubled look. He explained to us that the family that was supposed to leave "our" room had gone out for the day, left there belongings in the room and not checked out. He proceeded to drive us to a hotel in Playa Chiquita that was right on the beach! He put us up in a room that was double the price of Blue Conga!
It was my partners birthday "week" and I was trying to make everything just right for her. The fact that Eric took care of this situation the way he did made us feel very comfortable and taken care of.
Our original plans were to travel over to Quepos after our 3 day stay at Blue Conga. We decided to stay on the east side for the duration of our stay after seeing Blue Conga and realising we were going to lose a day of vacation riding on a bus to the west side. When I approached Eric about staying another couple of nights, he told me that he was booked solid. Well by some alignment of the stars there was an opening for the 2 extra nights and it worked out.
The location is just enough out of town to make it relaxing but still close enough for a 5 minute bike ride to the laid back energy of Puerto Viejo.
The accommodations at Blue Conga are comfortable, quite and relaxing. There was just enough staff presence to meet our needs but not so much as to impose on our privacy.
We love to patronise businesses such as Eric's. It is clear he performs his job out of a love for what he does.
Thank You Eric for making our stay memorable.

Hotel has a great, peacfull location, 5 minut walking away from city. Rooms are big, new furniture, clean, bathroom is nice. Breakfast is simple, but this is all you need. Eric, the owner, is great. You can also rent a bike for 5$ per day. My recommendation to all.

Blue Conga is a family run hotel within easy walking distance of the main town, but far enough out and off the mainroad to ensure a quiet relaxed stay. It has a plunge pool which is just right for cooling down, but the seating round the pool could do with upgrading. The pool is in a shady pleasant garden overlooked by the breakfast veranda, wher their is an honesty fridge with cold drinks and the owner is happy for the fridge to be used for your own drinks or fruit.
The owners of the hotel are very helpful and able to offe advise and recommendations on local attractions and restaurants.
Superior rooms (upstairs) have safes in the room, whereas standard rooms do not, but the hotel is pretty secur as it is secluded up a small track, where you can also safely park your car.
Breakfast is included and is a set plate of many varieties of fruit plus toast, some egg and ham fruit juice and fabulous Costa Rican coffee. Some reviewers have questioned the cost in terms of value for money, but in my personal opinion it is worth paying for the location and ambience.

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.
