I really enjoyed staying in this beautifully located, warm and cozy place. Sure, there are no t v 's in the room, but that makes it all the better. It is close to beach, and even closer to the center of town. Many nice restaurants are right nearby, and so is a supermarket. But the best thing is the nice room and especially the extremely lush setting. Few places have so much "green" ! The 2 managers are really warm and friendly, and the showers are hot. What more do you want? I highly recommend this place to the budget traveller.

Room Tip: All the rooms are the same. They have a common kitchen and supply coffee all day long.

I stayed here in June 2011 and am writing this review a year later, which shows I still have great memories of this place. The rooms are colorful/comfortable/clean and the beautiful private porch with hammock is an amazing spot to just chill and take in the atmosphere of the place. Paolo the owner was amazing and such a delight to snorkel and hang out with. He is full of vibrant energy and great recommendations. He recommended this awesome strozzapretti dish from his hometown and it was amazing. There is also an amazing treehouse that is an intimidating climb up but a fun adventure. Definitely stay here if you are looking for something special and vibrant.

We stayed three nights in December, 2012, and loved it. Rooms are nice with a big porch with a hammock. Gardens on the grounds give the place a tropical feel and the rooms feel very private. Location is central and convenient for food, beach, etc. Guy who runs the hotel (Andrea?) is friendly and helpful--he even helped me practice my Spanish.

Go up in the treehouse!

My son and I recently spent 10 days in Puerto Viejo, Costa Rica. We chose Hotel Guarana 'sight unseen' and couldn't have been happier with our choice. The rooms, which are centered around a beautiful tropical garden, all have small porches with hammocks which were perfect for relaxing after a day on the beach. The hotel is located in the center of town but the street is quiet and the owners were most helpful. Having the use of a kitchen and a lovely patio on which to eat also made our stay feel comfortable and homey. We even loved Saba, the sweet resident dog. Can't wait to go back!

This place is really cool. The rooms are clean and the staff is really helpful. Prices were fair and they offer a kitchen which is a plus If you like to cook your own food. There's a treehouse which offers the best view of puerto viejo ever. The owner is a really sweet lady who offers help with anything you need. Will definitely stay here again.
