““Very welcoming and relaxing hotel: THE BEST HOTEL EXPERIENCE we've had"”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 3 March 2012

Awesome. The resort was beautiful and the care and attention we received from Marian, Dilan and her staff made our vacation better than I could have imagined. This place was exactly what we expected after reading the reviews and checking out the website.
I want to emphasize:the room is very pretty and has very comfortable beds. Also, it has a high security.
I recommend it to anyone who wants to go to Puerto Viejo. VIP HOTEL is in the middle of the nature where you can enjoy its beaches and much more...AMAZING!!!!!

First things first, Marian who works there is a lovely lady. She was kind and helpful. However this doesn't make up for our disappointment with the hotel.

1. It is far from the beach. The website indicates otherwise. It is at least 15 mins walk along a bumpy dirt track.

2. The rooms are huge, which for us meant it didn't feel cosy. However they have been tastefully done. Each with a kitchen and lounge. For some people this would be great, of course.

3. There is no safe. As it is so isolated and they've already had a robery, this is just foolish. Plus our door didn't lock properly, so it was extra bad.

4. There are a lot of bugs. This isn't the hotel's fault, but it's something to be aware of. As they're truly located in the jungle, we were bitten here more than anywhere else on our 3 week trip.

5. It's too expensive for what it is. The prices should be lower. We met people on tours, saw their rooms and heard the rates. We were definitely over-paying.

All this said, the breakfasts were great, the pool area is decent and the staff very friendly. So if they can sort out these issues and you don't mind relative isolation and you aren't hoping to be by the beach, it'd be much better.
