The hotel is quiet charming by its looks but the owner is a witch known all over Puerto Viejo for her arrogant, rude behaviour. While we were staying there 3 individual people/ couples moved to another hotel as they couldn't stand her. For me, she completely ignored me, looked at me upside down each time I passed by, would never...

Great peaceful and quiet place with a wonderful garden and very contentious staff who ensure the place is clean and safe. Great for people travelling solo and groups. Location is a few roads back from the beach so you can go out and party and come back and have a peaceful night's sleep. Great mattress and quality mosquito net provided...

The front desk is open 8am-8pm, So I was expected to arrive by 8 pm. However due to me taking a bus from San Juan to Puerto Viejo my expected arrival time was 8:30 pm I contacted the staff through email and explained my situation and staff stayed there till my arrival of 8:45 pm ( which I truly appreciate)!....

I stayed for 3 nights during a tour. My roommate and I were given one key for the room and one key for the gate (the entrance gate is locked from 8pm - 8am) so when my roommate went home early one night, I had to ensure I returned to the hotel at the same time as another member of...

This is honestly the worst hotel I have ever stayed in. I came here as part of an intrepid tour and myself and my room mate were given a room which was like a prison cell. It was tiny, had bars up at the tiny windows, absolutely zero natural light, no air con, the tiny desk fan they had stuck...

We spent New Years Eve here. Last minute booking. Rooms were small but comfortable, bathrooms adequate. No breakfast. Highlights are service and the wonderful atmospherre created by the staff, "jungle garden" and Christmas decorations. nice to have porch with hammock if you have time to enjoy it. Locked car parking free.

I loved the Jacaranda. My Bungalow was in the back of the lush garden, it had a comfy bed, mosquito net and Fan, everything clean enough. My room had a small terrace with a hammock, great to relax. I did not use the communal kitchen as I was eating outside every day. Jacaranda has a good location, very quiet for...

Rooms are hot and no air conditioning. Fan is powerful but ends up circulating hot air. Water sometimes was not hot or even warm in shower. Having said all that the staff were pleasant. And the courtyard is nice. There is a kitchen and you can store things in the fridge. The place is pretty secure and there is a...

The one thing that really sticks out to me about this hotel is that they strictly enforced "quiet hours" which appeared to be after sunset. As a traveler, wanting to connect with other travelers, I found it frustrating that management requested that our group could not sit and converse in the gardens. Otherwise, the location of the hotel was good,...
