We stayed here two nights with a student group and found the hotel to be very comfortable. The reviews I read were pretty true. You want a room in the back part of the hotel. These rooms appear to be newer and the atmosphere is really great. As you walk toward the back, past the lobby and pool area, you literally enter the rain forest. Our room was almost at the very end of the elevated walkway and we seemed to be in the middle of the forest! The room was spacious and, although sparsely appointed, very comfortable. There was a nice balcony with a table and two chairs where you could enjoy the rain forest. The sounds are impressive- birds, frogs, and howler monkeys. The rooms in the main or front part of the hotel appear older and I'm assuming were part of the original construction of the hotel. I don't think there are a lot of choices in Puerto Viejo, but you will find Hotel Bambu to be adequate for your needs.
