Recent Puerto Viejo reviews

  • Our own slice of the coast!

    "What a great stay! The property is exactly as described. It’s a charming, right on the beach (the best beach in the area), private escape with an accessible property manager that was easy to communicate with before and during our stay. The air conditioners worked great when needed, drinking water was provided, within an easy bike ride or walk to great restaurants and activities. Great spot, and I would easily rent this property again."

  • Wonderful house, very private

    "We rented this house last month with just one other couple for a week and were extremely satisfied with it. We could have easily housed 6 people but we had 2 back out last minute. The house and landscaping were beautiful and actually exceeded our expectations based on the photos. We spent every morning and every night in the private pool. We were told by people from the area that it is the nicest house in the area. Very secure and safe. All the bedrooms provided ample privacy when with a group. The cleaning service they had came in every other day to change linens. The caretaker Clementino was there to take care of everything we needed and Amelie and Claudine handled some special requests we had to add to our experience. They helped arrange to have a private chef come to the house to prepare a meal (as a surprise to me) for my birthday while we were there. Junior was definitely a character and cooked one great meal. We spent time a lot of time in town and went to Punta Uva and Manzanillo as well. There are some very good restaurants in town, we went to Bread and Chocolate twice for breakfast and Cafe Rico as well. The Banana Azul is walking distance and allowed us to use their beach facilities and restaurant also. They have great 2 for one drink specials every day. We have only been back home for 4 days but I would pack up and go back in an instant if i could."

  • 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."

  • 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."
