Friendly, welcoming staff, great breakfast, great location (main street 3 mins walk, beach is opposite). Ok, the rooms arn't the cleanest and they do smell of damp, but they look fantastic, - apartments with sofa, lounge and bedroom in the jungle!

For me, Kayas Place was the best choice in Puerto Viejo. A quiet locaiton only 200 m from town, a wonderfull Playa Negra just across the street.... Very friendly atmosphere and staff, restaurant and bar where you never get bored....espetially when the home made Honey - Mango Bier was on tap. A luxury beer, I loved it!

We enjoye our stay at Kaya's place. It's ideally located by the beach (although I'd recommend walking/cycling further up for nice beaches) and very near the town and supermarkets.

We got given a nice garden room, and would recommend paying extra for this as the other rooms are very basic.

The food is very nice in their hotel restaurant, with delicious pizzas and cheap drink deals.

If you get your washing done with them make sure you give plenty of time, plus if you're going to rent a bike choose one of the places in town as they're cheaper than Kaya's place.

It was a very nice hotel though and we'd certainly stay here again if we're ever lucky enough to come back.

I've stayed at Kaya's Place multiple times and have had no problems. Kaya's is right next to the beach, its an amazing view and the staff is great! Dawna, Mau, Andy, Lorna, and all the rest of the staff are awesome and after staying at Kaya's I go there all the time to hang out and have a few drinks or eat dinner at the restaurant. Reasonably priced, great view, and close to town. :) Stay here!!!

Kaya's Place in Puerto Viejo is a dark place. The best thing it has going for it is the ocean across the street. The owner has a terrible reputation for being rude, and I can attest to this. It is unkept, rooms are moldy and the atmosphere, as I said, is dark. The bar houses a rough group of drinkers and what appears to be druggies, and i highly recommend that you do not bring children to this place. For the price, one would expect kind staff and cleanliness, but this does not exist. I highly recommend staying elsewhere, as there are many places in the same price range that deliver a much higher quality.
