The sounds of the jungle will rock you to sleep in these well-equipped 1 or 2 bedroom units. Mariam was a very gracious host willing to help in any way to make your stay more comfortable Location is very peaceful, but with a car you have easy access to the great beaches and animal rescue centres in and around Puerto...

We had planned to stay 14 days in VIP Hotel, but when we got to Puerto Viejo and saw how rough the sea was we changed our plans, since it was not possible to bathe in the sea with kids - we hardly dared ourselves. We had obviously not researched properly about the Caribbean coast this time of year, so...

First of all, the hotel's staff is wonderful. Their service is outstanding. Rooms are nice decorated y very clean as well. After the excursions we did, we had a swim at the swimming pool. Everything is exotic and I really recommend it.

Nice place to recover energies from the daily routine. It was my first there inCosta Rica and I received a good impression from both the country and the hotel. The staff people are very kind and I enjoyed the holidays with my girlfriend in a peaceful atmosphere.

This hotel is clean and safe. However, the kitchen lacked some basic equipment and the lighting is poor. The pool is nice and the casitas are comfortable. In general, I don't recommend this for more than a 2-3 night stay. The owner was quite rude to me when I explained that I preferred to pay using PayPal as Moneygram was...

VIP I spent 3 days and 2 nights at the VIP HOTEL Playa Negra. The owner, Miriam, is from Spain (Barcelona) and very helpful. The "hotel" is in private property.
