“The best Bed and Breakfast I have ever been to and the highlight of our vacation”
Reviewed 8 December 2012

My girlfriend and I recently went on a vacation to Costa Rica stopping at our few places, and Physis was our first destination. We found the place on trip advisor and saw it was very well regarded, so our expectations were high; but we were still blown away with how amazing the overall experience was!

When we arrived in Costa Rica we rented a car from the airport and drove, but we underestimated the length of the drive and by the time we arrived at Physis it was already dark and we were completely exhausted. However, as soon as we arrived Jeremy (Jeremy and his wife Emily own the place) was waiting for us with a smile on his face and welcoming drinks. We instantly felt welcomed and it was just the thing we needed for the moment. This is just one example of the little things that make this bed and breakfast so wonderful.

The location at Cocles is great, right between Puerto Viejo and Punta Uva, with plenty to do in the area. The actual bed and breakfast is beautiful; Jeremy and Emily did a fantastic job decorating the place and we loved hanging out in the outside areas, we even saw a couple Toucans when we were eating breakfast!

I could honestly go on and on about how great everything was from the food, the hospitality, the room, the price, so on and so on. Jeremy and Emily are people who love what they do and would do anything to make their guests feel welcome. Jeremy even found a personal guide to take my girlfriend and I out on a long hike through the rainforest; which happened to be the highlight of our vacation!

Long story short, if you’re interested in visiting the Caribbean coast of Costa Rica, this bed and breakfast is a MUST. Easiest 5 stars I have ever given on any review! They’re constantly improving too, so by the time you read this review I bet it’s even better!

The owners were polite, accommodating, helpful, knowledgeable about the area, friendly, clean, and the list goes on. The place is beautiful and I would recommend others to go there and I would stay there again if given the opportunity. Breakfast was always fresh and delicious and the area is safe and secure. Beds were comfy as well! I wish I was still there! Great vacation.

From the moment I walked into Physis I was in awe from the beautiful design and the owners Jeremy & Emily are genuinely two of the nicest people I've ever met. They were on point with all of their reccomendations including Johanna's restaurant (carribean food) next door, the Jaguar refuge Canter, horseback riding, ziplining, Elena Brown's restaurant (carribean food), etc. They were also approachable and very eager to help. Physis is pretty much a central location to everything and less than 10 mins from town. The owners have a cat and 2 dogs, but don't worry they're very friendly and will not be in your way. Also, I felt very safe during my entire stay. Physis Bed & Breakfast is a must for anyone visiting Puerto Viejo. Costa Rica. Enjoy!

We found this B&B through Trip Advisor and were not disappointed. I had had several conversations by way of email with Emily before arriving about various points of interest and restaurants. They had made us a dinner reservation for the first day we would be arriving at an adorable restaurant with only 5 tables. This was done before our arrival. When we got there, we were greeted with a welcome fruit drink with coconut rum. Our paperwork was filled out and we were shown our room. We were in number 1. They have thought of all the little extras that will make your time there special. The B&B is immaculate and Jeremy always seems to have a project to keep updating their little piece of paradise. While we were there, he was working on adding more outdoor lighting to his very well kept grounds. Emily makes great breakfasts. Our first day was belgium blueberry waffles with syrup that had a splash of coconut rum. Both Jeremy and Emily were extremely social and we enjoyed hearing about their experiences of how they found this place and the obstacles of furnishing it. They put so much TLC in this place. One morning we were going to the Jaguar Center and Jeremy took us down on his golf cart but along the way, he showed us the way we would know how to get back to their place since we wanted to walk back by way of the beach. They went the extra mile to make sure everything was perfect. Great people and I would highly recommend this b&b. Our best to Emily and Jeremy. Hello to both of you from Cathy and Greg.

Our first week of our 3 week honeymoon was spent at Physis Caribbean and what a welcome to Costa Rica we received. Jeremy and Emily, the owners, made us feel at home instantly, always willing to help and provide advice to make sure we visited the best places during our stay. Our honeymoon cottage was so cute, very clean and the bed was extremely comfortable - great pillows! The owners have clearly worked hard with the house and gardens and we couldn't stop admiring all the little details. The location was spot-on for what we were looking for -short walk to the beach, $2 taxi ride to the town of Puerto Viejo and with restaurants and a supermarket within walking distance. During our week we felt like we only scratched the surface with what the surrounding area has to offer. The beaches, the wildlife and the food were all exceptional. We were so happy we chose to stay at Physis and were sad to leave! Highly recommended.

My fiance and I stayed at Physis and had an amazing experience! Emily and Jeremy were exceptional hosts--from greeting with us with a delicious drink when we arrived, to giving outstanding advice on beaches, restaurants, and nearby adventures (like the Jaguar Rescue Center, ziplining, and white water rafting). I would highly recommend Physis to anyone traveling to the Caribbean coast of Coast Rica!

This place is AWESOME! We were looking around for a place to stay and were extremely lucky to come across this place. We even stayed three more nights just because we had a great time! As you may have realized from other reviews, what makes Physis Caribbean truly special are the wonderful hosts. Emily and Jeremy really went above and beyond to make us feel at home - from giving us recommendations, to cooking delicious breakfasts and even rushing to provide us first aid when needed. They truly care about their guests.
The beach is a walking distance away and it is one of the most amazing beaches we've been at on our trip (which included many beaches). If we are ever in the area again we would definitely come back!
