Well, the front desk, restaurant and pool areas are nice. However, the rooms do not have windows or AC, so at 5am every morning your are awaken to the jungle coming alive with howler monkeys, and every bird under the sun. The staff was very nice; however the food was bland. Now the location was great. We walked to the...

Excellent! there are no additional words to describe my staying in Totem Hotel. In the last 10 years I have been traveling all around the world and I have to say this is one of the best place I have been. The location is simply fantastic, just 10 meters from Playa de Cocles. The hotel perfectly represents what my boyfriend...

We had a wonderful stay in Puerto Viejo and loved our time at Case Verde. We had a section of the little house which had a mini-kitchen; it worked out perfectly for us! I would recommend this place to anyone looking for a good deal, nice accommodations, friendly staff, safe, and cleanliness.

We booked our room for two nights through Expedia and were upgraded upon arrival to a spacious bungalow in the rear of the property. This was probably to accommodate a large multi-family party that arrived on our second day, but it was a kind gesture nonetheless. Our bungalow was quiet and peaceful. We liked the security at the gate, especially...

When I say best on the beach, I mean, closest to the beach as there are not any ON THE BEACH, but this one is close as you can get, its just across the road from Playa Cocles, and a killer surf beach only if you are REALLY GOOD, the beach is tough for swimmers, snorkelers, and any novice swimmers,...

I stayed here with some friends for 2 days. The staff was very friendly, the place was beautiful and right on the beach. Couldn't have asked for more, and the price was very reasonable. Will stay there again when I go back.

This is a cute, well designed hotel with a lovely tropical atmosphere. In this part of the world you won't expect big industrialised impersonal hotels, instead, you will find all sorts of boutique hotels with different concepts, some assertive, others not so. But Totem hotel has my best rating in Puerto Viejo. The breakfast is delicious, well assorted.
