Everything was just perfect !!! The piece of nature surrounding this guesthouse is so beautiful !!! We could sit on the porch forever... watching the wildlife, the sloth in the palm tree, all kinds of birds, monkeys in the trees. On the last day of our stay here, we had the hazardous idea of buying a ceviche on the beach......

Spent 11 nights here with our children who enjoyed the pool and accommodation. We had a very relaxing holiday and would recommend this place for all. Rooms are good and clean. The nature is all around you and we saw many animals in the hotel area. The owners are great and extremely helpful and want you to enjoy your holiday.

Our spacious room with kitchen was very comfortable, and we had a private terrace with its own garden where we had breakfast. The gardens and pool are beautifully maintained. Breakfast is extra, and we found one was ample for two. The couple who run the guesthouse could not have been more helpful with information and recommendations about restaurants and transfers....

We enjoyed our three nights at the Playa Negra Guest House. The rooms were simple but comfortable for myself and two kids (6 and 13). The pool was great, enjoyed by both of my kids. The staff were all vey nice. The location was close to town that you could walk there in 5-10 minutes, but far away enough that...

Great way to start my trip to Costa Rica. Caribbean coast beautiful - lots of birds, animals, local food and amazing tours. Very relaxed and natural environment. Marise and Pierre were wonderful hosts - very accommodating, lots of suggestions where to go and what to do. Warm and friendly, felt safe and very much enjoyed their company. Pierre took me...

After a long and stressful drive from San Jose we were welcomed by Marise and stepped into paradise, made every second of negotiating SJ traffic worth it. The gardens are spectacular and the accommodation so perfect. We stayed in the Blue Cottage which was just great. Plenty of space, lots of equipment if you wanted to cater for yourself and...

We (2 adults and a baby) stayed 8 days with Marise and Pierre and couldn't have been happier. This was by far the best hotel / B&B we stayed at during our 8 weeks travel in Costa Rica. The guesthouse is located right at Playa Negra in a lush beautiful tropical garden with a very pretty pool area. The owners...

Love this place. Best bed in Costa Rica. I didn't want to get out of it. Super clean. Super comfy rooms. Amazing garden I just wanted to sit there forever. The beach is just across the street. Two delicious restaurants down the street. Very comfy. Not far from town either. A short walk. Owner is very accommodating and will help...

A splendid destination choice. Everything way above par, plus exquisite landscape maintenance. Pamper yourself and order one of their remarkable breakfast selections at least! Worth a photo indeed... This hotel is located on the tranquil side of the Caribbean, but easily accessible to all the activities for which the Puerto Viejo area is noted, absent the congestion and noise.
