“Wonderful Gem of a Place”
Reviewed 31 August 2012

We just came back from a 5 night stay at Casa Las Brisas and it was just lovely. Michel is a charming and attentive host. He could not do enough for us. We especially enjoyed the breakfasts on the beach, the table with an embroidered tablecloth, freshly squeezed juice, a different one each day and as many coffee refills as we wanted. He provided beach towels any time we needed them and a lovely dog to accompany us on our beach walks. The beach is just steps away, you can hear the waves crashing right from your rooms. He put up hammocks for well earned relaxing after our numerous excursions such as kayaking and snorkeling and walking into town. And you have the benefit of walking the two minutes to Banana Azul for a dip in the pool or a beer at the bar. Highly recommmend Casa Las Brisas.

Casa las brisas was a perfect stay for us, Michel and his staff do everything they can to make your holiday great. The house lay just steps form the beach so at night you can relax at the porch and hear the waves enters.

Tips for wine and dine, just a lunch or a day activity Michel knows it, so if you like a personal and people who wish you well we will highly recommended casa las brisas.

The rooms are clean and the breakfast comes with a special touch. One morning Michel made us breakfast at the beach ( camping style ). You will feel like a honorary guest when he makes you fruit bowl, fresh juice, coffee, eggs and some homemade banana bread.

We were a bit unlucky with the weather, but our host made ​​the stay so special. Thanks to Michel an his staff.

My husband and I, like others were unable to get a room at Banana Azul which came highly recommended to us. We had just come up from Bocas del Toro and were hoping to get something clean and quiet without spending too much. This place was the perfect balance (stayed on June 9th and 10th). Michel is a wonderfully pleasant and classy host. The casa has all the benefits of the hotel with added privacy. We had to leave our two dogs at home for the trip, so we enjoyed the company of Zena. There were times on the beach when we were the only people on it aside from a horse and some dogs. Michel has been in the area quite a while and can give plenty of great tips of where to go in town.

Room Tip: The pool is actually next door at Banana Azul, along with wifi, laundry service, etc.

The casita was the perfect start to our honeymoon, we stayed for 5 nights and loved every minute. We we're recommended Banna Azul next door but they were booked up for the dates we wanted and we were so pleased we stayed with Michel and Zena. Perfect hosts and so helpful to a pair of Brits a long way from home. Everything from the breakfast on beach to help with places to eat and not getting ripped off by taxi drivers!
We would highly recommend staying here and are looking forward to going back for our 10th anniversary!

We originally were booked for Banana Azul and they were booked so we were told to try here. It was better than we could have ever imagined! Michel is an amazing host, very helpful and caring. The room was nice,clean, and it was VERY private. Delicious breakfast on the beach (with his dog Zena by our side hanging out), caring staff and an unforgettable locale. We will definitely be returning!

We stayed at the Casita on our honeymoon and loved every second of it.

Michel was extremely helpful in almost all aspects of our trip. He gave us a lot of recommendations for things to do in the area and made sure that everything was as expected and up to par.

Casa Las Brisas is nice because it is more homey feeling that your typical resort. You get the peace and quite of being away from a resort but with the comfort of having one that is affiliated with Casa Las Brisas right next door (Banana Azul). Casa Las Brisas has at most 6-8 people staying there at a time, 3 rooms. So even when it is full, it is still extremely quite and relaxing. Even at the resort next door, it still seemed nice and relaxed. The beach that you can walk on to get to town was nice because it felt like your own private beach.

All in all, I laying in a hammock reading books while drinking from a coconut. Would definitely book this place again.

Thanks again for a memorable honeymoon!

On a trip with my dad, we were moved from Banana Azul to Las Brisas and no regrets. Best host, best coffee served on the beach and ideal view in the morning. For those who expect a five star hotel in Puerto Viejo, turn around, for those who want calm, nice service and to be a few steps away from the beach without the fuss, this is it.
