The bungalows here were great. Very roomy and always clean. Minerva was great. She was always helpful and her customer service was great. On the other hand. The restaurant was way over priced. Food was good but service was the worst I have ever seen. One night we were supposed to get free glasses of wine with our dinner and...

My family recently spent a wonderful time at this beautiful hotel in Puerto Viejo. The grounds are gorgeous and the service and food was delicious!! We also loved our massages at the Indulgence Spa, located nearby. Silvia and Auxi gave us lovely massages. I highly recommend this establishment!!

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.

Me and my mother really appreciated our stay at La Costa de Papito. The staff was very helpful all the way throughout our stay. Minerva was sure to accomodate us for everything we needed. They let us keep our luggage their for a couple of days while we traveled elsewhere for free. They made us juice with starfruit that we...

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.
