Perla negra is a nice beachfront hotel in puerto viejo, it is close to the city, around 20 minute walk or by a 2000 colones taxi. The service is really good and they are always trying to make your visit as good as possible. Recently they have this pizza nights with great pizza.

I really liked the location, in front of the beach. The place is quiet, clean, and the employees were nice and friendly. The only drawback II found was that they did not take credit cards. However, that seems to be common around Puerto Viejo.

The facilities are kind of weathered. Convenient beach front location and hidden from main road. Friendly staff willing to help. Other than the typical breakfast which is included in the rate, the hotel does not offer any kind of restaurant or room service. The price-benefit relation could be over rated as you pay much for the same type of accommodation... More

We liked the location close to the ocean and to Puerto Viejo. However, the room was very dark, we had cucarachas everywhere (later on even in our bags and suitcases). Furthermore, the staff was not very helpful (e.g., recommendations for nearby things to do) and the breakfast was quite poor.
