The personal of this hotel is really probably the most friendly I have every had. The rooms are spacious, but what one does not directly notice: there is only one big room and the toilet and the shower are separed by a half wall from the bed, so that mosty you can here what the other person does there :) Well, it might be an advantage if you want to talk. The other disadvantage which is caused by the climate however it is the mold smell in the room. It is always very moist in Puerto Viejo and I suppose everywhere there is the same problem. But the mold itself was not seen anywhere in the room - it was indeed clean. The location of the hotel is good - it is indeed near the rain forest (see the map). The Spanish personal was extremely friendly and helpful.
The village of Puerto Viejo is a small Jamaica and its flare is everywhere. You can rent a bike to get to other beaches as the beach of Puerto Viejo is not very nice. But be careful: the rip tides are everywhere - being a very good swimmer I had difficulties to get out one time!
On the whole it was a nice stay in this hotel.

When we arrived to puerto Viejo, we had a hard time trying to find the hotel, the streets are like a small maze, and the hotel is far from the bus drop (like 7 blocks), but close to the beach... After that, everything went good... The room is so well designed, eco friendly and big.. the showers are amazing, and the bed (even not being so soft) is really cool.
The staff is good, and really friendly, they treated us so good. It's cool that you can pay later with card, something not that common in the area.
If you're willing to reduce your comfort expectations and save some money, this is the place to stay.

The hotel is designed in a simple, Ikea-like way. I thought it was functional, my partner thought it was fine but the bed was really uncomfortable. The shower was great. The staff was pleasant. If you rent bikes, bring them into the courtyard for safe keeping.

The hotel is located a short walk (3 minutes/2.5 short blocks) from the main street. It has clean, large rooms with a beautiful, minimalistic spanish design. The staff Marcos & Carlos very helpful and friendly. They are very outgoing and give great advice for further travels. We ate breakfast only once on our three night stay and it was fantastic and well worth the $6.

We went her for a 3 nights stay and we were very pleased with the helpful and friendly staff. The hotel is a little off of the main street of the village which is a plus considering that at night it can be a little noising. The rooms were very clean (they have a lady cleaning every day and changing the towels). For the price is a perfect stay and I would strongly recommended.

Room Tip: Any rooms looks a like and they're all good.

Indalo is a nice little boutique hotel on the outskirts of Puerto Viejo with simple rooms, own shower and WC. It's clean and got all you need. Marco who welcomed us was very friendly and accommodating. We actually didn't have breakfast there but went into town, which is a quick stroll. It's a hotel we would definitely return to. The value for money is excellent.
