Recent Puerto Viejo reviews

  • Lovely house, convenient location

    "For our family of young and older adults, this was absolutely the most perfect house and location. Restaurants, stores and beaches are within close walking distance. Punta Uva, the town of Puerto Viejo, and attractions like the Jaguar Rescue Center are within easy biking or walking distance (including the restaurant La Pecora Nera). The jungle is all around, but the property is completely secured by fencing and there's a feeling of security as well as privacy. The managers (Mao when we were there) were so helpful, before and during our visit, and always available. The saltwater pool was lovely, and we had it all to ourselves since we rented the entire house. Star-gazing from the lounge chairs by the pool at night was amazing. Every morning we walked along the dirt road through the jungle to the beach to watch the sunrise. We took flashlights to see the leaf-cutter ants doing their thing along the path. Some mornings the howler monkeys would be right up overhead, which was thrilling to hear. There were so many different birds in the area around the house, including toucans. On the beach, where the nearby creek feeds into the ocean, there was a variety of shore birds there every morning. At the house, we spent most of our time at the pool or upstairs in the open kitchen area. It was always comfortable, with a ceiling fan as well as a floor fan and plenty of seating for six, including rockers and a hammock. It was the dry season so we had no problems at all with mosquitoes. The bedrooms were air conditioned, which provided a nice break from the humidity. The bedrooms also had screened windows that could be opened if preferred to a/c. We cooked a lot of our meals and found the kitchen well-equipped. If you rent the entire house there is also an indoor kitchen downstairs, but we didn't use it at all. There's a charcoal grill by the pool that we used one night to grill some fresh fish. Plenty of towels are provided, with extras for the pool. If you rent for an entire week, someone will come mid-week to clean, bring clean towels, and even change the sheets if you want. We loved the house. Away from the crowds of Puerto Viejo, but within biking distance, close to Playa Cocles (with a lifeguard and surfboard rentals), surrounded by nature, but also in the midst of a vibrant community, it was the perfect location for our family--just what we were looking for."

  • Fantastic getaway jungle garden house

    "Beautifully groomed piece of land and cabins by two friendly owners. Lovely salt pool to cool down on those very humid CR days. Would highly recommend to families, or couples or small quiet groups of friends looking for a place where you can be autonomous, with a perfect distance from more bustling village of Puerto Viejo. Carter is a musician and has a local band that plays in town. Pamela gives yoga classes. They helped us with a "lost and found at airport" baggage situation, taking calls and greeting driver. Dogs are very quiet, chase after animals that visit. 7 minute walk to the beach, 25 minute walk to town. Fast Wi-fi station inside our cabin, water just warm enough in the outdoor shower, fully functional kitchen. Litchis, limes and more in the garden. What more to say? Pura Vida ! Hope I can come back some day."

  • Special, Unique, Wild

    "If you are ready for adventure and enjoy the sounds of nature all around you...if you are not too worried about a few visits from massive insects...if you don't mind that the "living space" is completely outdoors...this is a great place for you to make your home base for a visit to Puerto Viejo and the Caribbean Coast in general. The location is fantastic. The small pool was nice and always spotless somehow and the property is amazing. We lucked out and had a sloth as our neighbor for our entire 3 day stay which was a great treat. In the morning, after all the animals have done their thing, looking out into the jungle is such a serene experience. We felt very lucky. Pamela and Carter were great hosts and open to help, advise, whatever - whenever - while also allowing us to do our thing. I'd say if you are up for the outdoor-only living, which was initially a challenge for us (especially at night), then you should absolutely consider this awesome place."

  • Dream Location

    "My wife and I stayed for a week and enjoyed the extremes of weather; sunny, mild and an incredible storm. The bungalow was perfect for both. When it was nice we enjoyed the best beach you can imagine right in front, I mean, just out the door, pick a spot in the shade, under the palms to read, then in for a dip, repeat!! When it stormed we walked a short way around the point where the water was calmer to swim and were able to enjoy the bungalow when the power went out because there were candles and a gas stove to make a memorable dinner. It was windy so the fans weren't missed, quite comfortable. Another reviewer mentioned the security and I agree it really is like Fort Knox. We never felt in any way like the neighborhood had anything to worry about, but it was nice to swing the big wooden door closed and not have to worry about even the remotest possibility of any hi-jinks. The other outstanding feature of the property is the property booking and management company. Caribe Sur Rentals and Green Management treated us like we were their most important guests ever and I'm sure that's the way they treat everyone. The bungalow and grounds were clean and presented more like a fine resort than a vacation rental. They are as good at what they do as you could ever expect! We are a couple in our very senior years and some might say are more picky than we used to be, but we couldn't have been happier with the way we were treated and our stay at Robinson's Beach Bungalow."
