Reviewed 4 February 2013

I really enjoy staying at this original, exotic and wonderful hostel where everything is very Eco-friendly and natural. The congos on the morning wild life outside your room butterfly's, birds, monkeys, sloths. The front beach is just a paradise warm and clear water. Service was always smiley, friendly, just great (Silica, javier, marco very helpfull with amazing tips on the area). The price of the room is very good and is a great place to stay with friends. The room have his own kitchen and they are very private.

This is by far the best option for families traveling on a budget. The cabinas are simple but well equipped with a kitchen, warm showers and a private bathroom. The hosts are a very friendly and very helpful couple who genuinely want you to have a relaxing, great experience. But even better, the nicest beach you will find near Puerto Viejo is just a 50 meter walk through the forest. Even on the weekend, the beach NEVER has more than a handful of people - it's paradise. There is a great grocery store close by and Puerto Viejo with its nightlife and charms is only a few kms further if you want to go out for a meal, drinks, or hear music.

I stayed here last year a couple of nights and i can say this was a great option. The place has it all, a great location between the town and the cabins, you can easily bike travel, a relaxing atmosphere, also the beach is just a few meters away, and the bungalows are fully equipped, if you`re going to puerto viejo this is the place to go.

It's definately my favourite place to stay whenever I'm in Puerto Viejo. The best thing is that it's just right next to the beach: crossing the jungle and you can have a nice swim every morning! The beach is the nicest one that you can find near to Puerto Viejo and in the morning you have it for yourself. The cabinas are just right in the jungle which means that you're always surrounded by the music of the nature. You don't see you're neighbours because of all the trees, so it's a good place to escape from all the touristy places in Costa Rica.

I really like this place, this place is for people who likes to relax and enjoy the music of nature. Bungalows have everything you need to stay a few days or a while. Also the beach is just 50 mts from cabins. Highly recommend.

We saw a baby sloth in front of our cabin here in Cabinas Yemanya, check it out: http://youtu.be/0B_8vtjehs8

Ive been going to these cabins for quite a few years and in my experience it has been perfect. Its not expensive and you have a lot of privacy. Plus the beach in front is beautiful... Also the location is perfect if u wanna explore other places on bike.

We were there for a couple of days and the place is really beautiful! But ... no service at all! No towels, no good information! They also don't care of the nature, the water from dishes and (cold) showers are going to the forest. They ask too much money for what they offer and everything needs some cleaning, it could be a wonderful stay! I know they also let people working there without paying, no, it's a bad place at the moment!
