I arrived to Puerto Viejo after a long 7 hours by boat and road from Tortuguero, having been up for about 9 hours already. When I arrived on a (Monday afternoon), no-one was at the reception, so I shouted hello a few times. Eventually, a mature lady came down with 2 guests who looked like they were leaving. The lady asked me what I wanted, I told her I had a reservation and she asked me to pay up front, which I didnt mind. I asked to see the room, which was very basic and the swimming pool area was dark and grim looking. The room was $35 with breakfast, which is what I would pay for a high end hostel or low end hotel. However, the standard of the room, property and most certainly the service was rated at low end hostel at most. Definitely far too much I wanted to pay. When I was looking around the room, I asked if I could get wifi, she told me it depends on my laptop. I tried and it didnt work and she literally told me that I could go look somewhere else if I wanted. That is what I did and let her keep the money I had paid. I wouldnt recommend this kind of attitude to anyone, especially in such a nice laid back part of the world.
