“cute and clean”
Reviewed May 27, 2013

The casitas at Mar y Luz are simple but super cute and clean. I stayed for four days on my own (as a single female) and felt safe and well cared for. The staff is helpful and available when you need them. Stephanie, the manager, is fantastic. She's able to provide you with whatever you need at the hotel and around the area. She makes your stay exceptional.

The casitas are located a way from Puerto Viejo (the main town) but near some of the best beaches. I rode my bike into town during the day and took a taxi after dark. Taxis can get a little expensive ($8-$10 to town) so you have to add that to the cost of the room.
