Not bad but not much in that area to choose from
Dated hotel. Not horrible but not what we expected. Food wasn't bad and service was conditional depending on who you spoke with.

Worst experience at a hotel EVER
STAY AWAY. The moment you walk into this hotel room, the smell of mildew hits you like a ton of bricks. Lifted the sheets to look at the mattress ( NOT Tempurpedic as listed) and saw dark mildew stains on all 4 corners. In addition, mosquitoes were buzzing inside more so than anywhere outdoors. We noticed a large 3/4 inch gap in the doors when they were fully shut. plenty of room for mosquitoes and other bugs to come join in the room. In fact, we heard a loud buzzing in the bathroom, walked in to see a Dragon fly that looked prehistoric. This thing was HUGE. After ALL of this my girlfriend and I left to another hotel. I have NEVER done that before. I have attempted to get my money back from the hotel, my credit card,, and because I paid at the hotel, couldn't force them to refund (gave me a voucher for 1/2 cost which was nice) and my credit card could not force them to refund since it was international. I REALLY hope this keeps people away from this hotel. GARBAGE. STAY SOMEWHERE ELSE.

Saved by an upgrade
We went to the Caribbean Coast with visiting friends. We were provided with two rooms both facing the busy and noisy street. Our room had an air conditioner, phone and a toilet all that did not work. We asked to be moved and were provided with an upgrade to adjoining bungalow rooms at no additional cost far from the noisy street. These rooms were quite satisfactory. The grounds, lobby, pool secure parking are nice, but I would rate the free breakfast a 5 on a scale of 1 to 10. However when compared to other accommodations in the Puerto Viejo area, this is one of the better properties.

The room was too close of the street and there was a lot of noise, loud music. I did not enjoy the condition of the room it´s not just that It´s old but in bad condition. Probably I could look the other way if the rate of the room were lower but for the rate I paid I did not expect such conditions.

Wonderful Hotel
We were greeted with a cool fruit drink and cool towel which was a perfect way to start our stay after traveling. The staff was extremely accommodating. We arrived late, yet they turned on the pool lights and allowed us additional time in the restaurant and bar. The town is lovely with a typical Caribbean laid back feel. We had an early morning shuttle and they even prepared a boxed breakfast for us because the buffet breakfast was not set up that early. Wow, you don't get that kind of service often. Overall, I would highly recommend!
