We stayed at this hotel for the first leg of our honeymoon and it is like being in the jungle. The hotel has 13 cabins. The hotel is very clean, very friendly, very safe. The cabins only have a ceiling fan and light, no TV, phone. This place is a great way to get away from it all. The beach is about 3 mins walk from the hotel (thru the jungle). The beach is soo empty, that it felt like a private beach and it is very clean too. At around 4 am, you hear holler monkeys "hollering" and it is very loud (i liked it, the wife didn't). Then closer to morning, you hear the roosters - the best! The town of Cocles is about 2km away and Puerto Viejo is 5km away. If you are not scared, you can always hitchhike (that's how we did it sometimes), otherwise, you can take a bus (bus costs about $1 per person). There is a security at night at the hotel and all staffs are great. If you like to get away from it all and like the jungle and animals, you will enjoy it. If you don't, do not go to this hotel. Recommendation: Go to Shawandha.
