Stayed a couple of nights as part of a group tour in February. Unfortunately, it rained most of the time we were there which maybe colours this review slightly. We stayed on the land (as opposed to beach) side of the road in the pleasant and reasonably spacious little bungalow type rooms. These had a 'fridge, mosquito nets over the...

This is a restful getaway. As we entered the gates, we automatically felt the stress melting away. The owners are kind, warm host. The staff is friendly and attentive. Within walking distance of a grocery, pharmacy and a multitude of restaurants. Breakfast at Hotel Escape Caribeno was delicious. Enjoyed the tour to meet the Bri Bri people in their villiage....

We stayed here 2 nights on our tour. Very clean and comfortable and even had a 220v socket (most in Costa Rica are 110v and mean UK appliances don't work well or at all). Great to have mosquito nets too. Would recommend.

Lovely! Bungalows very roomy, clean and have that authentic Caribe feel. Outside sitting area with hammock a plus! Hot shower in a comfortable bathroom. Access to bungalow either where car is parked (and enclosed) or through outdoor dining area . Quiet and peaceful. Nicely stocked fridge and safe. The Manager greeted us warmly and professionally. I definitely would return.

Stayed as part of G adventure tour, everything worked in the hotel, nothing special (hammocks looked nice), had mosquisto nets, a little further walk to town vs. other accomodations. Very decent middle of the road accomodation. Don't lose the keys! They will charge 150USD for that key chain (which was very heavy and cumbersome to carry around)

We stayed for 4 nights in the Beach Front Cabana's with a party of 8 and had the time of our life. Everything we wanted to see was right in our backyard and better than the tour we took of the national park. Amazing cabana's and most friendly service in the best location in Puerto Viejo

My tour group used this place for two nights. Very nice, with clean and spacious rooms (beds even have mosquito netting), a good location, and a pretty garden. Only drawback is that it take awhile to get hot water. Also be on the lookout for the pretty tropical frogs if your wandering in the early morning.

Great hotel in Puerto Viejo. Bungalows are very comfortable and very clean. Beach-side is definitely recommended as to hear the ocean waves crashing near from your porch, Each room comes with A/C, Hot showers, mini Bar/Fridge, Cable TV, free WiFi, mosquito nets over the beds and they are very comfortable and really big, it has on site secure gated parking...

I operate a Costa Rican hotel association so I know Costa Rica. I have travelled to every corner of the country but when I have a few days off I tend to gravitate towards the laid back southern Caribbean, calmer waters, more animals, jungle backed beaches, cute little restaurants with funny names. Escape Caribeno is operated by the nicest people,...

A great hotel in Puerto Viejo. Rooms are sort of small independent cabinas with a spacious bathroom, one or two beds, a small desk and a fridge. Rooms are very clean and comfortable, air-conditioning in the rooms I've stayed in. In front of the room you have a small porche with a hammock and coupe of rocking chairs, great place...
