The resort and staff were amazing. We arrived late from San Jose and the staff stayed late to assist us up the mountain. Additionally, they prepared a meal and had it waiting in our room upon our arrival. The house we stayed in and the grounds of the property were breathtaking. We will be returning to Samasati in the future.

Our family had visited Costa Rica before but never quite like this. After we contacted Costa Rica Expeditions (transportation was needed to the island) We were met at the airport with a sign displaying our name. From there, their was a 3.5 hour chartered bus ride through the city, the cloud rainforest and many villages to the dock. On the boat ride down, looking at the beautiful rainforest and river all around us we knew that this was going to be amazingly different. Everything was wonderful. It was both relaxing and adventurous. The staff was friendly and very accommodating. They met us with a refreshing all natural fruit welcoming drink. We had the 3 meal a day Full American plan for our 6 days there and this was EXCELLENT. The food was delicious with great portions served. Overall this was an excellent hotel.

"Perfect location for Eco tourists beach/rainforest"
For anyone looking for a combination of an isolated beach and rainforest reserve this is the place. Featuring some of the worlds friendliest staff who will treat you like family, who truly care about your experience. Prices are completely reasonable. The food is 5 star or better, surpassing anything we have ever ate in the world, from presentation to freshness and menu variety, always cooked to perfection. There are public beaches within walking distance, and local attractions and activitys to ensure you are never bored. We could not have asked for a better experience.

My wife and I stayed at the Perla Negra in January. It was a great experience. The hotel has a diverse group of people staying in a beautiful, rustic hotel right on the water. Oscar, the manager, is superb and streered us to a great Italian restaurant in Puerto Viejo, the city a mile away. We had some rain during our trip bit it was part of the experience, especially its sounds on the roof as we slept at night.
We loved it. Great place. Be a little adventurous and stay there. You will not regret it.

We stayed our first night in puerto viejo at a place we weren't too happy with. After finding lizard king on Expedia we thought we'd give it a try. We aimed to stay one night but ended up staying for 3. Staff were amazing. Breakfast was awesome (choice of 4 different ones) . great location. Pool was awesome and quiet. Bike rentals were cheap. Even our room without AC was well ventilated and cool with the windows and fans. Awesome place. Highly recommend. And VERY reasonably priced.
