The tv has loads of channels and there is a fan and a fridge and shelves in the room too. Coffee and tea is available every morning and you can also rent bikes and go on... More

A very nice little hotel set in a beautiful tropical garden. A lot of space with hammocks outside the rooms. The owner Rolf is very friendly German biologist who have lived in Costa Rica for many years. He is the author of serval book about the costarican flora and fauna.

Very close (5 minutes walk) to Puerto Viejo Central City. They don't include breakfast, the personal speaks English, German and Spanish. Safe parking lot with night gard.... More

I have stayed in Puerto Viejo 5 different times; the last three with Rolf at Cabinas Tropical. Reason: best value, location and helpful staff. You won't do better than this. Local people, well traveled, multi lingual, educated, want more?

The place outside looked really nice and is well done. You have very comfy hammocks outside of every room. We liked that. But inside the rooms it should be done a bit. The sheets where so old, and should be changed. Even if they might be washed it doesnt feel very nice. Also the moskito net is not long enough.... More
