La Costa de Papito is a little slice of heaven! We had our wedding there and Eddie and his family and staff made it a beautiful day. We felt like more than just guests in a hotel; we felt like we were true friends with everyone there. We will be back! A huge thanks to everyone there (Eddie you're the...

The owners of this property have enhanced the naturally beautiful environment with crafted wood bungalows, tucked away to provide maximum privacy. Each has a large porch with wood table, seats, and hammock. The main building houses the office, equipped with a friendly and helpful staff, and a top class restaurant, serving a full complimentary breakfast. We enjoyed the food and...

We recently stayed at La Costa de Papito for our daughter’s wedding – it was perfect! The surroundings are absolutely beautiful, the bungalows are delightful, and Eddie’s family and staff are the most thoughtful and accommodating hosts anyone could ever hope for – we were so well taken care of. Eddie, my daughter, and I corresponded by email over the...

We couldn't have picked a better place to host our wedding!! Not knowing anyone in the area who planned weddings was challenging, but as soon as we contacted Eddie, he took care of everything and made everything run smoothly. He and his staff and his local friends put together our dream wedding as we emailed back & fourth from Canada....

This little niche in paradise is beyond amazing! The price is amazing, and the place itself was more than expected. The Bungalows are beautifully unique and handcrafted, with privacy and comfort. They are an open air feel, with mesh on the windows to keep the Costa Rican critters out, but we were still able to keep the windows open as...

Loved the Papito !! One of the most unique places I have ever stayed; it was a great experience. Mosquito nets ?! It felt like a true arrival to Costa Rica. Bungalow #1 and #4 each had two beds equipped with jungle themed sheets (which could use updating) and mosquito nets. The rooms have ceiling fans and so many windows...

By far one of my favorite hotels ever! Relaxing, natural (no tv, phones, etc.) and absolutely beautiful! Excellent service, excellent kitchen, and excellent place to relax and take in the jungles of Limon. Isolated bungalows, extremely well designed, beautiful bathrooms and honestly one of the best kitchens in the Costa Rican Caribbean coast. Only 4 stars for value because we...

Wow. Where do I start? A few steps from the beach, great service (CINDY WAS A GEM!), HUGE, beautiful bungalows that are positioned so you feel you are in the middle of the rainforest. Quiet grounds and great customer service. Great for a romantic getaway or a family vacation. Takes some time to get to the location, but it was...
