Our family stayed at Physis Caribbean B&B for 5 nights in July 2013 and it was perfect for us. The grounds are beautifully maintained, the room was cleaner than any other hotel we had stayed at in Costa Rica, and the owners (Emily & Jeremy) were extremely nice and prepared an excellent breakfast every day before we headed out for fun.
Starting with our arrival, there was parking available for our rental car and we were instantly greeted by the owners who had wonderful complimentary "welcome" drinks in hand for us! Just what we needed! :-D We then unpacked our car and were really impressed by the extensive wood and beautiful relaxation spots all around Physis. This included hammocks, benches, and chairs that later in our stay my wife found perfect for catching up on her favorite Kindle book.
We stayed in the separate room near the back and loved how clean the room was, that it had satellite TV (although we only turned it on once), the very well working A/C, stocked mini fridge, and spacious hot shower - especially after coming from our previous hotel in Tortuguero which was very rustic and had no A/C!
The owners helped us with ideas on where to go each day based on how the weather was looking which was nice. We had 4 days of sun and 2 days with some pretty good refreshing rains. My wife and son went zip lining and preferred it to the zip lining we did the previous week near Guanacaste. We also spent ample time at multiple beaches and took along rented snorkel gear and boogie boards from Physis. Or son enjoyed the Jaguar Rescue Center animals and making chocolate and then eating it at the Cocoa Museum and it was nice to be able to rent the 2 beach cruiser bikes with baskets from Physis which we used to explore PV and get snacks at the local grocery store just down the road.
Right next door to Physis is Restaurant Johanna where we conveniently ate dinner and had great CR food. We also enjoyed a few other restaurants around PV and all the meals were very good. Eat at Malbec for an awesome steak dinner!
Puerto Viejo was the last town we stayed in on our 2 week CR vacation and we are so glad we stayed at Physis! We cannot wait to return some day. We will miss the owners Emily & Jeremy and their lovely pets, Gizmo, Vida, and Lucy.
