The resort was a great getaway for the weekend. Nice location and felt like being in the jungle. Staff was fabulous and we enjoyed the pool, the restaurant, the spa, and sitting area of the lobby for after dinner drinks. The morning grounds were filled with howler monkeys which were lots of fun to watch. Traveling with my husband, Mom and good friend we all shared the same opinion, Great service, friendly staff, and wonderful care!

Room Tip: Bungalow rooms are great and nestled in the trees. Just know the howlers will wake you up early.

Beautiful grounds, flowers, fountain, pool and hammocks, across street from nice beach with lots of surfers - fun to watch. Great resident dog and cat, and though a bit out of town, has bike rental on site if you don't want to walk or cab. Best breakfast of all the places we stayed, though a bit light on the fruit so abundant everywhere else. Hard working ladies in the restaurant. Rooms are decent sized, no TV in ours and we did experience plumbing issues with the toilet, and very low water pressure in the sink and shower. Easy walking to restaurants in town or the other direction.

Room Tip: Check water pressure - not sure if it was our room or hotel issue.

this place was nice, it's directly across from a beautiful sandy beach. The grounds of the property well very manicured. The staff was always friendly. The only reason for not giving it 5 stars is that, I wasn't fond of needing to put my poo paper in the thrash can. That's just not my thing. Oh ya, also you better not mind giant spiders everywhere outside. Actually the whole town needs some serious pest control. There taking over.

We had a lovely stay at Cariblue the staff couldn't have been friendlier or more helpful. Our room was always cleaned beautifully. The grounds were visited by Sloths, lizards and a wonderful array of birds. There are some bad reviews about the food at Cariblue so be careful about what you pick from the menu on the whole we had some good food especially the fish fingers (unlike ours) it was fresh fish lightly cooked and was very good, same goes for the chicken fingers (whole fillets).

Rooms were clean and nice location to beautiful beach. What made this hotel good was management. Mariela, the manager went above and beyond to help us with anything we needed or any recommendations we asked. Loved the beach area more than other beaches in CR.

Reading mixed reviews I was a little leery to book here but it was the only option available on very short notice. The room was clean and does not offer a tv. It smelled a little damp but that's something that we found in many hotels in Costa Rica. The jacuzzi was not in working order which was disappointing but there's an ocean across the street so we didn't really care. Loved the hammock area to relax in. The food was tasty and we got a 20% discount on one of our meals upon check-in at our room. For us the location was perfect as we don't like to be in the middle of it all but in a five minute drive or quick bike ride, you're in town with plenty to do. There is a cat that loves to share your food and a very friendly dog that might follow you to the beach for a game of stick. We are animal lovers and having pets in restaurants is a normal occurrence in CR, so it didn't bother us. The only thing that irritated me was the ants in our room. Then again, it's CR and there are bugs every where. I would stay here again.
