“tranquility in the center of town”
Reviewed April 5, 2012

There are loads of great looking cabinas on the road between Puero Viejo and Manzanillo but if you want the convenience of staying in town this is the best option while still feeling like you are out in the jungle.

Rooms are moderately priced, spacious and clean with great verandas with chairs and hamocks. Rate includes complimentary coffee and wifi. The grounds are wonderful, with lots of wildlife (frogs, crabs, birds and the occasional sloth) a really nice pool and garden.

We rented bicycles everyday and cycled the road to Manzanillo but were really happy to come back each evening to our choice of restaurants and our comfortable lodge.

We stayed here for 4 nights in March 2012, with our 1 year old son. It's not particularly cheap, but they do discounts for cash and it comes with an amazing pool, and heaps of wildlife which our son loved (crabs, birds, frogs, squirrels, geckos). Also has free coffee and wifi and daily maid service. Our room had a great balcony with hammock and overall it just felt very calm and relaxing, but still in the centre of town. Also safe - they have a security guard at night.

Room Tip: The private room on the second floor at the back is great and peaceful.

stayed with my spouse on our last two nights in Costa Rica, we needed a place to air out our hiking gear and do some laundry. This place worked was just what we needed- for the moderate price. Nice spacious rooms and outdoor veranda for hanging all our swimwear and towels. Good location to walk for late night, and very safe for families.

We stayed in the cheapest room they had and it was actually better than I expected it to be. The rooms were spacious enough and clean and in a safe location. There was a hammock on the porch and a line to hang up laundry which I appreciated. The bathroom was shared but I never had to wait to use it or the showers and because there was a sink in our room, it was a little easier to manage.
They also have a pool and hot tub and a fun little garden with frogs and cool plants.

We only stayed here on night and although we enjoyed it, the hotel lacks the charm that warrants the price. We had a private cabin with a private bath which was clean and quiet. The grounds are clean and well maintained with a pool and other nice amenities. The staff is helpful although they lack the usual Costa Rican level of hospitality.

Overall there are many worse places to stay, but perhaps many b

Nice clean rooms, friendly & helpful staff. Well kept property with pool. Puerto Viejo is a small village, everything was within a block or two, restaurants, bars, clubs & beach. Sweet spot for a decent price.

The rooms are nice but not as private as I would have liked....they are in a row separated by dividers, you can`t see the other person but you can hear them... I did notice they had a few individual more private bungalows though..Now to the good stuff...Great big pool, hot tub is not really a hot tub, same temp as pool... The little patio in front of the room is nice with a chair, table and hammock. The room was nice with a little tv, hot water, and clean.....I liked this place....close to everything in town....not on the beach, but we weren`t in PV for beach, I prefer snorkeling in Cahuita...

Room Tip: try to get one of the end rooms, so you won`t have to much foot traffic in front of your room...
