“Cosy! ”
Reviewed 27 January 2014 via mobile

We booked to stay here based on the great reviews. However, we never actually spent the night after being shown to what only can be described as a shoebox! A double bed touching 3 out of the 4 wallls meant that if we both wanted to be in the room at the same time then our bags had to be outside! The 'private bathroom' was separated from the shoebox by no less than a shower curtain. There was a fan, however it couldn't reach either of the plug sockets! The lady who showed us the room described it as cosy, that was an understatement!
The other rooms looked great, however they were fully booked! Just be warned if you book a private double. There's barely space for one person let alone two!

We had an awesome time staying at Vista Verde. It is basically in downtown Puerto Viejo but since it is set back from the main street you get a nice break from the loud hustle and bustle that sometimes can go on late into the night. The property was very lush and beautiful with tropical plants growing everywhere. The staff was very welcoming and were there to help answer any questions we had. The room was nice and suited us very well although we didn't spend too much time in the room itself, we mainly just hung out in the hammocks that are strung up all around and relaxed. Overall a great place to stay.

Had a lovely relaxing time staying at this place over New Year - it was a quiet haven away from the NY festivities! Good kitchen facilities and outdoor sheltered common area with hammocks. Our room was very comfortable and private. The atmosphere with staff and guests was very relaxed. Recommend it.

It was great here. We were the only people there when we stayed and it was nice and quiet. The wifi wasn't working but that's OK. There was a sloth kicking it on the property and was a nice treat. The owner let us borrow his bikes for free.

Vista Verde is the nicest place I've ever stayed at by far. It's pure and natural combined with all the luxuries that you could wish for to make it your home, like a lovely kitchen and free wifi. Francesco, the owner, is a fascinating man who has a lot of passion for what he does and has created a relaxed and easy atmosphere in his guest house. I felt at home immediately and had a wonderful time with Francesco and Gift, both very generous and warm people that are happy to just chat or help you out with anything. The rooms are nice and the downstairs area is a great place to hang around and do nothing or share a meal together. Saw a sloth in the back garden too, so close by i could've touched it. I've never written a review before but just had to this time since vista verde made a big impression on me. If I ever come back ill definitely stay here again!!

Ps if you're in puerto viejo, get a bite to eat at Puerto Pirata, right on the beach near the bus station. Amazing food made with love!

We really enjoyed the pura vida at Vista Verde. Especially, Francesco, the hostel owner made the stay there just nice. We had a really good time with him and it's important for him that you feel good in your holidays. Thanks for the good time! Hope to see u again :-)

I found Vista Verde after staying at another hostel and really enjoyed our stay for over a week. My girlfriend had to do alot of studying for university and Vista Verde was perfect for that. Such a beautiful tranquillo place. And Francesco is a great host. I would definitely recommend it and would stay again if ever in Puerto Viejo again!
