My husband and I spent our honeymoon here and it was just perfect. We stayed for twelve nights and wish we could have doubled it.
The location was perfect for us - a bit down the road from the center of Puerto Viejo so none of the craziness but all of the convenience and near some lovely beaches such as Punta Uva, Manzanillo and Cahuita Parque Nationale.
The grounds are beautiful. Aside from the rooms themselves everything is outside, nestled in the stunning nature. The pool is lovely and we understand they're opening a beach bar in the next couple weeks. We saw all sorts of wildlife on site - one morning we spent two hours laying in bed watching a troop of howler monkies hanging in a tree just a few meters away. It's a civilized retreat in the middle of wonderful nature.
We stayed in the Le Cameleon suite (it was our honeymoon) and it was lovely. Simple, clean, contemporary. Nearly as big as our apartment in Los Angeles. With a gorgeous open air jacuzzi tub and shower.
The staff were wonderful. Pleasant, kind and helpful. Very attentive, but not annoying. The manager, and frequently the owner, were present every day. They organized a few really great trips for us and were always happy to answer whatever questions we had.
The restaurant was very good. And their mojitos are delicious.
We were there in the beginning of September and it was great - just before it got too busy.
This was our first trip to Costa Rica and we can't wait to go back again. We both travel for work and have stayed in tons of high end hotels around the world so are pretty picky. If what you want is stylish simplicity in the middle of the jungle at the beach this is for you.
In response to some of the negative reviews, we think that must be the exception to the rule. We didn't find it to be a party hotel at all but a very relaxing and much needed escape from Los Angeles.
