This hotel was excellent. The breakfasts were very good. This is the place to stay when travelling to Puerto Viejo. The staff was excellent. One can hear the howler monkeys in the distance. Sloths in the trees. The massage spa was excellent.

We had the absolute BEST experience at La Costa de Papito! Amazing hotel, so unique. Wonderful staff, amazing food! One of our favorite experiences was watching a mom and baby sloth climb down a tree right next to our bungalow...CRAZY cool!! We could not be happier and can not wait to return!

Rooms are private, away from other rooms. We liked that a lot. Restaurant and food are great. Parking needs more space, gets crowded very frequently and we had to park a couple of times on spots not assigned as parking.

Absolutely wonderful people. Privacy. Nature. Very close to Cocles beach. 2km from main drag. Rooms are big, breezy. Beautiful bathrooms! Hammock was super relaxing. Breakfast buffet with eggs made to order. We rented bikes and explored everywhere. I've been twice now, once in May of 2016, and again at the beginning of 2017. Both times were incredible. 100% would recommend.

We loved everything about this resort. It was close to everything we wanted to do and yet away from the busyness of downtown. The food and cocktails were yummy, the customer service always went above and beyond the expected and the bungalows were exactly what a family wants on a vacation.

Spent Christmas with my family at La Costa de Papito. The location is fantastic near the beach and the vibrant little town of Puerto Viejo. Everything we needed was arranged by the very friendly staff including a wonderful kayaking tour. We hired bicycles and cycled to the idyllic beach at Manzanillo seeing monkeys, toucans and sloths on our way! I...

We booked this resort last minute trying to finalize our trip in Costa Rica. This was the more than we could have hoped for. The property is beautiful, the staff is amazing, the food is excellent and the jungle is everything you hope to experience in Costa Rica. We were sad that we only had three days to visit. I...
