The setting was very nice, spectacular in fact, as all of Tortuguero. The prices were however quite hard to justify.

A Gem

This place was ideal. Wonderfully friendly people, Bismarck the manager was so helpful at getting us on tours with local guides, just the 2 of us so we could decided what we wanted to do. Food was a good buffet at breakfast & just 1 choice in the evening but nice. Town is a boat taxi ride away, 10 minutes $10 return for 2. Rooms were clean & quiet, grounds well kept with hammocks in shaded areas. Our daughter told us about it, as she’d found it & had a girls holiday there ideal for all types of adventures Highly recommend

A special location

This hotel is very basic but it was spotlessly clean, had everything you needed and the service was very good. But the really special thing about this hotel is the location. We were the only people staying at this hotel so it was extremely quiet apart from the sounds of the jungle. We lay in bed at night listening to monkeys, birds, from making their noises. Whilst we dangled our feet in the swimming pool we watched the spider monkeys play in the trees. It was very special. The staff are very friendly and accommodating, helping us arrange transport and trips. We did a couple of trips from here, the kayak, jungle walk and turtle tour. All were incredible and the guides were excellent

    Misleading advertising

    I couldn’t say I loved our stay while the staff seemed nice. This is a newer establishment and there seemed to be a lack of transparency in how they conduct business. First, the complementary WiFi only exists on the dock and not in your room, which made researching the area very difficult. Second, i regret booking our canoe tour through them, with one guy quoting us one price and another refuting it and us paying significantly more than necessary. Third, the outdoor pool was being repaired and we had to be transported to another hotel to use their pool. Going off the property takes surcharges and I still couldn’t figure out how much. The first guy said they offer a 50% discount than local water taxi, which made it $10. The other guy didn’t seem happy about it and after chitchatting in Spanish among themselves, they came back to say it should be $16. this is the kind of lack of transparency that makes me very uncomfortable. Oh since you might not want to spend 16 dollars to get off their property, you can eat at their restaurant for 15 but this was also not written out anywhere. Overall I feel the staff is trying really hard to make people pay more rather than operating on a fair pricing system. I would not recommend this property to anyone unless there is significant improvement.

    This place is a great deal for visiting tortuguero

    We love this place! It is clean and basic with comfortable beds and the grounds are gorgeous. It's a short way from town but they are willing to drive you there by boat and believe me it is much nicer than town! Great staff and food. Highly recommend, good value... Kudos to Ron our nature guide, Bismarck the manager and Edna the cook. We were sad to leave after two days
