“An oasis in the Puerto Viejo area”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 29 October 2013

The hosts and owners really show their care for their livelihood and their guests! However, if you are less of a hotel tourist, you should know, the cheaper bungalows do not have aircon. They do not come with toiletries such as bath soap or shampoo. You will have to ask for wash cloths and there is no storage space to unpack your luggage. But, all you have to do is plan ahead or ask. In this way, we got separate towels for the beach and the washcloths we needed. The breakfast was made to order and was a delicious start to the day! Everyone knew a lot about the surrounding area and was able to guide us as well as rent us bikes to explore. If you don't have a car, you will be walking about 5-15 min to hit various types of eateries. The lovely common area with simple kitchen and beautiful pool give extra space for relaxation. But truly, your hosts make your visit, their kindness and attention is top notch!

Room Tip: Rooms in the Puerto Viejo area are cheapest in the town itself which also has the most and easiest a...

We're glad we were able to help you with what you needed! We DO listen to our guests and today, we installed shampoo and soap dispensers in the showers of the bungalows. We appreciate all feedback..next for plans...more places to store bags and clothing :) We hope you come back to visit us to see the progress we work hard on every day and thank you so much for your valuable feedback! Pura vida,

Caribe Town is perfectly located, close to Cocles and Punta Uva beaches and to the town of Puerto Viejo. Marc and Jessica make sure that your stay is perfect. Highly recommend Caribe Town for your caribbean get away.

My partner and I stayed at caribe town for 9 nights unfortunatly we had to leave earlier than we had planned, we loved staying at caribe town!
Jessica and marc went above and beyond to make our stay amazing and theyvmade you feel like part of the family would highly recommend staying here, so close to beach and lovely restaurants.
The bungalows were lovely and clean. We would love to return in the future.

We stayed at Caribe Town for 4 nights last week and absolutely loved it! Jessica and Marc are SO GREAT. Really, I can't express how wonderful these two are. We felt like family staying there as they were so keen on making sure we had a great trip. I would come back to Puerto Viejo just to stay at Caribe Town and enjoy their hospitality. Jessica booked us a zip lining trip that we decided to go on last minute, and organized all our transportation to and from San Jose. They're so easy-going and truly embody the "Pura Vida" lifestyle on the Caribbean coast. The bungalow was perfect - felt like we were in the middle of the rainforest but had just enough amenities to make us comfortable. The pool was also amazing and was the perfect accompaniment to beers that we could pull from the fridge at anytime. We easily took the bikes into town, or walked to various restaurants and never feared for our safety. The beach right across from the hotel is beautiful and at times we were the only ones on it. Breakfasts were great with excellent home made bread and jam. You MUST stay here if you go to Puerto Viejo!

Room Tip: We liked #4 the best

I've stayed at Caribe Town 3 times for a total of around 2 weeks. This review is long over due as I fell in love with Caribe Town over a year ago. Jessica truly makes this place wonderful because it is her life. She opens up her place and treats everyone who visits as family. Jessica and Marc are good down to earth people who will go above and beyond to make sure you have a great stay.
They can recommend tours and know all the best places to eat. The grounds are well taken care of, they have a frog pond where you can see little dart frogs. The bungalows are surrounded by nature and sometimes even the howler monkeys visit! Every bungalow seems secluded but not secluded enough to feel scary. We cannot wait to return! Hola to Jessica, Marc, Sydney, and Jules from Carol and Nathan we will see you next summer!

Room Tip: Paying with cash helps small businesses like this avoid large credit card transaction fees. Use cash...

Caribe Town bungalows were awesome! Jessica and Marc were most professional and made us feel “right at home”. Bungalows were very clean & provided all the needs to enjoy one's stay. Breakfasts were very healthy and prepared fresh every day. We will be returning. Ernesto and Maria.

My boyfriend and me stayed for two weeks in caribe town. We loved to stay there and to be honest there wouldn't be any other location im my mind for renting, if we'd come again to the coast side of Costa Rica. And the main reasons for that are, the beautiful atmospere in the hotel, the nice pool in the main area, and for sure the GREAT breakfast everyday with homemade pancakes, homemade marmelade and soo many diffrents things you can add . Marc and Jessica are the nicest, hospitality, understanding hotel owner we have ever met. They helped us with EVERYTHING, like planning and organising trips to everywhere, did our laundry in quite a short time period and did give as the best informations to many good restaurants and several places like the best beaches around. Our Bungalow with the king-size-bed was so comfortable and huge that we'd never wanted to stand up in the morning. We also had a private bathroom in it which was clean with a nice shower! It was the best decision to choose caribe town and we recommend this one to all people, families, couples, groups etc. We enjoyed to live there !
