I was here recently (October 2015) and some of the local cab drivers did not know that the hotel had changed it's name; so, if you ask them to take you to Paradise Island and get a confused look, say Isla I and they will know where to go. This hotel has clean rooms with air conditioning, a pool and...

Nice Hotel, great staff and owner, in front of the beach. Breakfast included (self service with choice of fruit, toast, pancake, eggs ..). Amazing room with very nice decoration (all in wood) and all services (TV, Wifi, kitchenette ..). We staid only 2 nights as we ended our trip there; a lot of activity proposed in the area, the beach...

Very friendly and willing to help when I was sick, although at first they seemed very silent and came across as very unpersonal. Swimming pool is in need of some care, it's not very inviting. Room with A/C was excellent. The decor/furniture looks all hand made and adds a to the charm. Breakfast included and cannot be faulted, it was...

We stumbled upon La Isla Inn on a bike ride down through Cocles. We had already made a reservation at a different place in Puerto Viejo but immediately rode there and back to change it. And boy we were glad we did! The staff and people at La Isla Inn were extremely friendly and accommodating - one of the owners...

Remember, this is the Caribbean coast of Costa Rica, and if you don't mind a few rustic charms you will thoroughly enjoy staying here. Clean, friendly, pool, interesting rooms, nice outdoor dining area and laid back. But the great beach right across the street makes this a real gem. I looked at many hotels along the beach in Puerto Viejo,...

La Isla Inn is a really nice small hotel. Cross the street and you are in the best beach ever: Puerto Viejo. The only tip for this place is try to get a room upstairs so you do not have to listen the steps of those staying upstairs. Anyway, you will see it: it is not a fancy place but...

the hotel is more or less OK and it seems clean. It was very important for me to have Internet access but the Internet is not working most of the time and once working it is extremely slow. Service is nothing special - there seems to be a certain routing and things work in an unspectacular way. It was for...

Petra and David made us at home instantly. We spent 6 days at La Isla Inn and loved it. The rooms are clean and comfortable. The food is amazing! You can't beat the location and prices. The only negative to the experience, not even a negative really, was that the jacuzzi was actually just a mini pool, no heat or...

“Rooms in the front don't have AC but have big fans and windows for ventilation and the best view from the entire place. Big deck with hammocks overlooking the ocean. Worth it!”

“Rooms in the back are quieter not over the bar-it closes at 9 pm If you choose the Pico breakfast bring some hot sauce Don't turn the A/C past 23 or rains in your room (you'll see what I mean) And if Petra's cookies are available get some milk or coffee quick!”
