Next to beach and the hammocks are great!

Posted Jan 8, 2017
Pros: The restaurant was nice and the staff were super helpful.
Cons: The pillows were not great and we couldn't get the hot water to work.
Location: Wildlife, beach activities (the ocean is not good for swimming), just walking around town, night hike.
This is likely one of the best hotels in Tortuguero but it's still a Costa Rican hotel in a small town so don't be expecting the Hilton. And have you seen the price! A great deal! Tortuguero is a tiny town and at the boat dock in LaPavona a representative from the hotel, named Curly, met us and made sure we were on the water taxi. He spoke great English and walked us through town us to the hotel when we arrived. He was also our guide on an early morning canoe ride the next day.He paddled us all around the lagoon, which was fantastic! Tons of wildlife...Capuchin Monkeys nearly jumped in our boat, they were so close. He had a great eye and a clear love for his town.

Great value

Posted Nov 17, 2015 on Hotels
Great location, right by the beach! The hostel is very colorful and looks nice from the outside. The room we stayed in had 3 beds, not the most comfortable but good enough to spend a night or couple while traveling. We contacted the hotel a day before our stay and asked about transportation from the Tortuguero Airport. We had a water taxi come and take us to town, someone greeted us there and walked us right to the hotel. There was a kitchen available for breakfast (eggs and toast with fresh fruit and coffee/tea, pretty good and not expensive) but payment for the meals was not managed well, we ended up paying twice because the person we gave our money to the first day didn't write it down. Overall great value for the price!

Nice place by the sea

This is a good value for money hotel right by the beach. Everything is about right for the price you pay here. Maybe a little breakfast included would be nice. We tried to eat there but they were so busy and we had to go for our tour so no breakfast for us that day :(

Very close to beach and awesome view

Posted May 6, 2015
Pros: Being close to the beach rather than the canal.
Cons: The rooms could use a door mat at the entrances so no tracking in sand.
Location: On the ocean side of Tortuguero rather than the canal side. Lots of tours are avail. The best is the canoe tour.
Very nice accommodation. Breakfast good for the price, and included juice and coffee too. We stayed 2 nights and enjoyed Tortuguero. Do not forget to take the recommended canoe tour.

OK place to overnite in Tortuguero

Posted Apr 9, 2014
Pros: -on ocean side, so breezy and more comfortable -staff pleasant
Cons: stricter rules about where people can do their partying and smoking
Location: Unique location: quite isolated; no turtles when we were there but this is one of its main attractions; home of the Sea Turtle Conservancy
We were fortunate to have linked up with a guide, who took us to the hostel after we got off the river boat. It would have been quite hard to find otherwise. The hostel is close to the ocean side, which made for nice surf sounds and a breeze, and looks nice. The rooms are clean but very basic and the fan just took the edge off the heat. We unfortunately had a very loud group of drinking and smoking Dutch people (old enough to know better) staying in the next few rooms and, as there is only screen on the windows, this was unpleasant. Mabel was very nice and helpful and I loved seeing the children of the family running the hostel playing around the nice gardens.

perfect for this price

Great hostel directly across the beach! Has even a terrasse to sit outside, and some hammocks. The Reataurant part is not bad and very inexpensive.Go for it!
