We have stayed 4 nights in this hotel and enjoyed every second of it. The rooms are very big and comfortable. Our bathroom was very big and could have been used in any “Flintstones” movie as it looks like a stone cave. The outside deck is great and we liked to sit there when the day came to an end and watch the agouti running around in the garden. There is no A/C, but we did not have a problem with that and loved to wake up to the sound of the birds in the morning.
About the area: We have already in 2013 been in the Puerto Viejo area and just had to come back. The whole region is beautiful and absolutely worth the long trip. However, we are not particularly keen on Puerto Viejo itself as it is rather dirty. However, all the little villages and beaches between Playa Cocles to Manzanillo are just beautiful and the restaurants in the region belong (in our humble opinion) to the best in the whole of Costa Rica!
Last year we have stayed at Physis Caribbean and loved it, but since it was already booked out when I did my reservations back in July, we chose to go to La Costa de Papito instead. It turned out to be a very good alternative, even though the staff and owners are not as enthusiastic and welcoming as Jeremy and Emily of Physis. However, that does not mean we had any problems with the staff. They have always been willing to help, especially also when we had a problem with our rental car and could use their phone for free to contact the rental car agency.
The only little disappointment was the fact that they no longer serve the “beef filet strips in a pineapple” in their restaurant. I had been looking forward to this meal since I knew we would get back to Playa Cocles.
Apart from that our stay was great and we would always go back there.
