I was really looking forward to staying here but was disappointed. There's good access to a nice beach, and you can walk along the beach all the way to Playa Punta Uva, if you don't mind squeezing under some trees, etc. The rooms are cute with good air flow and screens on the windows. The gardens are lovely and the...

We chose this hotel after coming across their website when planning a short trip in Costa Rica. By "beachfront" it means a 300m walk along a gravel forest trail to the beach. The "cabins" are duplex style with your room directly next to someone elses and the next cabin no more than 3 metres away. We stayed 2 nights and...

So unfortunate...yet the water situation in fact besides truly being a municipal problem is also a problem known by all as a drought. When there is little rain and dry periods are closely related to the nino effect in all of CA countries, and the area tends to have more population. We do encounter this inconveniences.

Upon driving our small rented Toyota Prius through Puerto Viejo and the horrible unpaved roads, we arrived at the lodge. I highly recommend getting an SUV for that section of the road. The location of the lodge was just perfect for myself and my girlfriend (25 year olds) because as Thursday and Friday of Holy Week came up the traffic...

Want to experience Caribbean Costa Rica? This place is the real thing. The hosts were very accomodating and helpful. My words can't begin to describe the scenic beauty of both the resort and the area in general. I would certainly recommend Playa Chiquita to anyone looking for an au naturale Costa Rican experience.

It's a funny thing about reviews. I am actually someone who really counts on other peoples opinions when purchasing an item or going to a hotel or a restaurant.....If a handful of a people say its great there must be something in it. I just bought a printer and read dozens of reviews and based on that made my choice...

The Playa Chiquita Lodge was the author's mid-range choice in the 2006 Lonely Planet Costa Rica guide, and that's why my boyfriend and I chose it. Its grounds are beautiful, with its own private path to a beautiful beach, and the rooms aren't bad. We stayed there two nights in February 2007. We are not the resort type of people,...

I stayed here for 2 nights in March 2006. It is about 3 miles (6km) south of Puerto Viejo. I liked the fact that it was a little out of the way. The hotel is nicely designed and painted and has a real Caribbean feel. Each "cabin" is divided in half creating two completely separate rooms. Each room has some...

Although the location is great (a bit far out of Puerto Viejo, but peaceful and beautiful as a result) and the cabins are rustic, but very tastefully done, I would not stay here again. With so many places to stay in the area, I would expect friendlier service. The owners were indifferent. For the week we were there we really...
