We stayed here in March for 5 nights. Gabriella was the only person in charge. She is very friendly and approachable. The main issues related to the water - one of our cabins had no hot water and the other one (we were 2 groups) had no cold water. Gabriella did her best to get it all fixed for us....

This place is not well maintained. The garden needs a real upgrade, but the biggest issue is that it is not very clean and you have small worms crawling in all the time. The kitchen is not very well equipped and there is no table to eat at - just a tall bar. The path to the beach is also...

This place in Puerto Viejo is kind of per fect to relax and get rid of the everyday tumultuous city life; the owners are very nice persons and they really make one feel welcome. However, the cabins need some work. The town is very charming and I admire the locals to keep it as natural as possible Great work!!!

Recently TripAdvisor featured the most beautiful beaches in the world. Add this one. Cocles Beach. There are actually several world class beaches on either side of Cocles Beach. In this region of the Caribbean side of Costa Rica, there are rapid transitions. Barreling waves, beautiful uncrowded beaches, a costal road, roadside amenities, accommodations then jungle, thick jungle. Puerto Viejo and...

Had a wonderful time. The place was very chill and peaceful. Cabina was equipped nicely, kept very clean, and had a wonderful modern bathroom/shower area. Victoria was very welcoming, friendly and attentive. Stove was a little bit dated, but worked fine for bacon and eggs in the morning. Birds and butterflies were everywhere. Out of Jaco, puerto jiminez and Puerto...

A great tropical escape in playa chiqiuta run by nice Italian owner. We were looking for a large room to accommodate family of 5, near the beautiful beach of Punta Uva with the option of a swimming pool. Apart from a slight hot water problem (which was partly fixed on day 2) the place is very nice. Huge bonus was...

I had posted a review about how bad the room condition was. The owner probably removed the post. Through booking.com and email contact with Paolo, i got some money back based on some 115$ per night rate. I don't have time to rewrite my bad experience. In summary, if el nido wants to be in business, they better fix what...

Hi Jayani, thank you for getting in touch with us. We are sorry to hear you complaints. We just checked with our supervisor Gabriela about that. Apparently, after your complaints, the room was cleaned again and the sheets were changed. And when she asked you at breakfast the next day you said that everithing was fine.
