“Fantastic!!”
Reviewed 3 April 2016 for a stay in March 2016

A true paradise in the jungle. Shevonne and Joseph were the consummate hosts. Great restaurant recommendations and always ready to hear about our adventures.
Can't remember the last time I went a week without some TV and didn't miss it a bit. Waking up to birds and great coffee.
An amazing 20th wedding anniversary memory!

“wonderful accomodations”
Reviewed 5 March 2016 for a stay in February 2016

My partner and I were warmly welcomed by the managers, Shevonne and Joe, even though we arrived quite late at night. From there it got even better. The place felt warm (of course the weather was warm as well!) and was well provisioned and when we needed something else it was provided quickly. The location was well off the beaten path but it was a rather short 1-mile walk to the town via road (a bit dicey with cars rather wild driving habits) or along beach, and the Casitas provided bicycles to use for a small fee whenever we wanted to bike further to the other towns and beaches. We were there for 3 weeks and although it rain more than expected (often at night) it did not effect our ability to explore the area....and of course the wonderful feeling of just lounging around to read, play cards, and connect via wifi to friends. Overall a great experience with minimum mosquito activity.

“Jungle Paradise”
Reviewed 24 February 2016 for a stay in February 2016

Hidden in a tropical jungle of Puerto Viejo, we enjoyed a fantastic week of relaxation and a little adventure with the help of our awesome hosts Shevonne , Joe & Victor.
After a warm and friendly welcome we were informed that we have a guest at our quaint and cosy chalet.!! A young three clawed sloth was clinging to the railing of our patio.
Everything was perfect !
The room was spotless,very private and quiet...the kitchen was well equipped with everything we needed . The porch had a very comfortable hammock that got lots of use.Very well maintained grounds ,felt safe and sound always.A short walk to the beech and town. We had a wonderful time ! Thanks so much...hope to see you again soon..Cheers..

“INCREDIBLE & GORGEOUS place to be”
Reviewed 16 February 2016 for a stay in January 2016

We stayed here for 20 nights in January and simply didn't want to leave. We were greeted by the managers who were super nice and incredibly helpful with everything during our entire stay.The casitas are beautiful and clean with a hammock on the deck and we could sit for hours taking in the beautiful lushness and jungle sounds of the area. It is walking distance to every amenity you could ever want or need but we also used the onsite wood burning bbq which was a plus. We would go back in a heartbeat as there is nothing negative that can be said about our entire experience. Joe & Shevonne made our stay really special because we arrived as guests but left as friends. Overall a great 3 weeks and can't wait to go back!!

“The Best Beach in Puerto Viejo”
Reviewed 24 January 2016 for a stay in December 2015

We arrived in the tropical paradise of Costa Rica's Caribbean Coast at Casitas Las Flores and were greeted by our most gracious hosts Joe and Shevonne. It was our first time in CR and they could not have been more helpful with suggestions of where to go, what to do and how to get there. In addition anything we needed in the way of the casita they were fast to supply! We stayed a month and had everything we needed right there. The setting is beautiful and the walk or bike to the beach is only a short distance away. We were so happy to be on Playa Negra as we felt it's the best beach in the whole area. Although quite a trip to get to the Caribbean coast, we will be back as it was more than worth it. Also, the Cahuita National park, suggested by our hosts, was truly a wonderful experience. We experienced Howler and Cappuccino monkeys, sloths, snakes, birds, and crabs. It was quite out of the ordinary for folks from the Midwest!

“Two Tickets to Paradise”
Reviewed 14 January 2016 for a stay in November 2015

After a long hard trek to Costa Rica from Canada, our final moments of travel turning down Casa Amma road we arrived to paradise. Joe and Shevonne greeted us with warm smiles and showed us to our beautiful, immaculate, casita. The next morning we woke up to the jungle alive with the chatter of morning birds and unbelievably delicious, freshly baked banana bread (still reminiscing). The Casitas Las Flores is beautifully taken care of, a real taste of living in the jungle with all the comforts you could want. Biking to the beach is a breeze, but don't try to out bike a rain storm you're going to get wet! Joe and Shevonne were wonderful hosts and had plenty of ideas of what to do and where to eat. We would go back in a heartbeat and miss the jungle already.

“Couldn't Imagine a Better Place”
Reviewed 15 October 2015 for a stay in October 2015
1
person found this review helpful

Vittorio and Amelia were the perfect hosts. Welcoming, hospitable, open and friendly yet respectful of privacy. The cabins are new and comfortable. The property is beautiful, and feels like you're in the middle of the jungle. It's close enough to walk or bike to town but far enough off the road to feel isolated and relaxed. The resident dogs are lovable and give you a secure feeling at night when the jungle is calling. Amelia is a terrific cook. We wouldn't hesitate to visit again.
One Tip - I would encourage you to do some research on the area before you visit. This isn't an all-inclusive resort town in Cancun. It's a jungle in the Caribbean. It's hot and humid. There is no air conditioning. There are bugs. There are animals. There's no satellite TV in your room. It's a genuine experience. If you visit with the right expectations, you will absolutely love Casitas Las Flores and the Puerto Viejo area.
