This lodge is nicely located in the jungle and you wake up with the screams of monkeys. Very stylish and friendly personnel, although the breakfast has room for improvement. Large cottages, all with a porch and hammocks.

We spent two night at Namuwoki lodge and got an upgrade, we ended up in a big 3 bedroom house just for my husband and myself. The house was well equipped, though the screen on the bedroom window had a few holes and it was hard to regulate the hot water.
We loved chilling out on the terrace but the garden could be a little better maintained.
Very friendly and efficient staff, we did not try the restaurant but the menu looks nice, they have a big selection.
The pool is a bit small for all the bungalows but was well looked after.

We were there for a couple days in January, and it was incredible. You feel like you are sleeping in the middle of the jungle, but in a completely comfortable bed. It is located in a great spot between the main beaches of Limon, but is very quiet at the same time. There is a supermarket just a couple steps from the entrance.
The service is awesome, Thaima is so gentle and she can help you with whatever you need, from towels to reserving tours.
The restaurant is very good, good service and delicious food. It would be nice to have more options in the breakfast.
We are decided to go back!

Room Tip: The bungalow suite is the best option for couples. Just in front of the pool.

Went on a quick escape to the south caribbean to Namuwoki!
They have come highly recommended and it was a beautiful hotel.
Quiet, the rooms spacious and the wood décor is amazing.
Maribel and family are amazing, great service always smiling!
Lots of wildlife.
Totally recommend getting up early for sunrise, birding and after breakfast we even had a sloth pass through the property.
The only thing is that I find it is not for everyone.
There is no TV in the rooms or WIFI and little cell service.
No problem for us but I know people who can’t live without internet.
In the evenings there is very little lighting around the pool and restaurant, I recommend that you bring a flashlight or pocket torch.

Great little lodge in the middle of the jungle! We spent our last several days in Costa Rica here on the Caribbean side and we're glad we did. It was definitely one of the more relaxing parts of our trip, in comparison to the Pacific side of Costa Rica. We were well looked after, the rooms were clean and we loved the balcony for reading in the late afternoons. Just a quick 5 minute walk through the jungle and you're sea side. Lovely!

This review is long overdue! My husband and I were married in Puerto Viejo in March, and us and our group (26 of us) stayed at Namuwoki Lodge. This hotel is absolutely beautiful. It is tucked back off the main road and is a tropical paradise! They have done a very good job about blending the restaurant into the surroundings, rather than overtaking the surroundings. The lodging is setup in individual bungalows, with one large bungalow with several separate rooms. There are other bungalows with a separate bedroom and then a loft bedroom, with a shared bathroom as well. We stayed in the suite, since it was our wedding week after all! It was beautiful, the beds were comfortable, we had a romantic mosquito net over the bed, which I loved! Each bungalow has a nice patio with hammocks, which was fantastic. There is a pool, restaurant, and two "hangout areas".

When we arrived, we were greeted warmly and were taken aback by how beautiful the hotel is. We did have some difficulties throughout our stay with various guests having a tough time with the owners over various things, one dinner we had there was served very slowly, but I do not blame them for this entirely as they were serving a very large group of people. The staff was very kind and helpful as well.

I owe a big thank you to one of the owners (Maribel) for being so sweet to me as I (the bride) fell ill the night after our wedding (UGH!). I had gone to her home on the property to ask if there was a hospital or somewhere I could go for medication, if I was not able to handle being so sick throughout the night. Fortunately I didn't have to, but she was so nice and sweet to me offering various things to help. I really appreciated it.

The care that Maribel and her team put into decorate the hotel for our reception, as well as the work which was put into our wedding at the beach (Maribel worked with Nina at Gecko Trail Adventures to order and setup the ceremony site) was incredibly appreciated. Our wedding was everything we hoped it would be and Maribel played a big part in that. She is a very kind and caring woman, and takes pride in her hotel and her work. Thank you, Maribel!

One other thing to note about the hotel is that it is a ways out of town, and the main road is rather sketchy to ride bikes on, particularly at night. I would recommend renting a car. Taxis are very easy to come by, but it is just the hassle of always being sure to call to arrange the transport every time you want to go somewhere rather than being autonomous.

Its incredible because you are in the middle of the rain forest, surrounded by wildlife in a luxury bungalow! The beach is near by and cant be more beautiful. The pool is perfect for that afternoon swim! The food is incredible and the people are really warm!
