Don't even know where to start! What a fabulous place to stay. Everywhere you look there is something at the hotel to delight your eyes: the lush grounds, the wood and stone carvings, even engravings in the pathways! Just a brief stroll across the road to a beautiful Caribbean beach- completely unspoiled by commercialization or crowding- often we were the only people on the whole beach. We stayed in a incomparably lovely and very private bungalow with huge porch and hammock and a huge stone shower. There is a lovely spa on the grounds and the restaurant (also open air) had a great international menu and we ate very, very well at a reasonable cost. The complimentary full delicious Costa Rican breakfast included fruit, coffee, potatoes, pinto gallo, quesadillas. tortillas. pancakes, and eggs anyway you wanted them. The service from the front desk ( Henry, Marva and Kitty)to our waiter (Gabriel) to the landscaping crew were outstanding and the owners Eddie and Auxi were attentive and friendly. Now one caveat: if you like quiet air conditioned Mariott type hotel rooms with golf and tennis and swimming pools, Puerto Viejo might not be the place for you! This is a laid back community and hotel in a jungle setting with noisy birds and animals and grasshoppers and such! Our bed was comfortable and room was cool. We had mosquito netting over the bed but did not have any problem with mosquitos buzzing or biting! On the whole much preferred the Caribbean side of CR over the more developed Pacific side.
