I spent 2 weeks here, and absolutely loved it. Everybody that works there was so friendly. It's right on a beautiful beach, close to the town centre. You are able to rent a bike for really cheap if you wish to. I travel to a lot of places, and would never normally go to the same place twice, however if...

I loved staying here, it was one of the best accomodations on my Costa Rica trip. Yes, it's a bit outside of the city but that's what makes its charme. I would've never wanted to stay in town - too dusty and sometimes noisy. The house it built of wood with nice colorful paintings on the wall, the front is...

We stayed here for the weekend- its a few minutes walk from town, and across the street from the black sand beach. We only booked one night because it was a little expensive and we wanted to shop around for a cheaper hostel- but decided to stay a second because we could have the same room. My husband and I...

So good, really friendly and really nice rooms. Met so many people and had a bonfire on the beach would definitely recommend for those travelling on a low budget. Felt like family after the first few days!! Good beaches and shopping everyone knows everyone 👍

Staying at Kaya's place was great! It's just on the outskirts of town, which is great if you want some quiet at night. The town is small and quaint so you don't have to walk far to get anywhere. As per usual, take the normal safety precautions you'd take anywhere in the world (i.e. don't go to the beach at...

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
The Door is Always Open at Kaya's Place... Kaya's Place is a 26 room lodge on the stunning Black Beach in Puerto Viejo, Costa Rica. Built in the Afro-Caribbean "Rustico" style, the hotel is artistic and unique. Local woods and materials have been used in their natural state, making each room different and beautiful. Every space you encounter will be a pleasurable experience. The sound of the waves is always in the background, soothing and tranquil, guaranteed to take you away from the stress of everyday life. Inside the hotel, you will find many places to relax. The reception area is more like a living room, with a gigantic sofa, television, people to chat with and view of the ocean. The large deck upstairs has a wonderful ocean view with hammocks and sofas - perfect for reading or taking a siesta. In the back, gardens line the walkway, filled with local plants and flowers. A covered sitting area in the garden offers another opportunity to meet and enjoy the company of others while you stay with us. Our restaurant is spacious and open with view of the ocean and a small creek with fish, water lilies, crab and other water life. Located in Puerto Viejo on the Caribbean Coast, the area is blessed with natural beauty in the form of dense jungle with impressive flora and fauna and some of the world's most beautiful beaches. Kaya's Place is part of the growing eco-tourism industry that supports the preservation of almost 2 million square meters of primary rainforest. Taxes from this industry support the many national reserves and efforts to maintain the natural resources. We are dedicated to preserving these resources while sharing it with all the people that come to know this amazingly beautiful part of Costa Rica. Our recent renovation of Kaya's Place was completed with the same philosophy. No lumber or materials were taken from the primary rainforest. Much was recycled wood or dead fall from local farms and lumber that had washed up from the ocean and rivers. With these natural and renewable materials, we achieved a unique character with rustic and artistic designs. Also all the walls are painted by hand, with many details and awesome drawings. BE OUR ECO-GUEST Our Door is Always Open at Kaya's Place - We Hope to See You Soon! ... more   less
