We had been on a tour of Costa Rica and stayed in a variety of places in Quepos, Monteverde, La Fortuna and Tortuguero. Escape Caribeno was one of the best. Comfortable and clean in beautiful private garden setting. I would have given them a 5 star rating anyway but the owner Gloria and her husband were absolutely brilliant. On the...

Loved staying here, perfect place to relax in Puerto Viejo! Hammocks and seating areas outside for every room and we even saw a sloth in the tree next to our room on the last morning! Had breakfast at a bakery down the road which was cheap and really tasty and the hotel was conveniently placed just outside of town.

I had one of the cabins in the gardens close to the beach. I was travelling alone but had double bed and two singles in the room. All the beds had mosquito nets. And I had en suite shower and toilet. Very clean. Very impressed. Veranda with a hammock to lol in. The owners were a very nice italian couple....

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)

Thank you for expressing your evaluation, which we appreciate   and that we take into great consideration .We do not mind if we will appropriately informed that the keys can be safely deposited in our reception. This allows you to not lose them and be more comfortable. A warm greeting Gloria Gavioli

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.
