La Casona
Ranked #4 of 9 Tortuguero B&B and Inns
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 10 January 2015

I totally agree with the last few reviews. La Casona is a cute, comfortable and clean place to stay. The people here are very nice and accommodating. Breakfast was basic but tasty. I WAS impressed that they met us at the boat dock. I sent one email asking how we arranged that service and since I left for CR shortly thereafter, I never got an answer. However, once we got to Tortuguero, someone was there to meet us. JUST FYI--the location on Google Maps is NOT good. La Casona is REALLY close to the boat docks. I was worried that we'd have to haul our luggage (which was really just a backpack) a long way. One more word about the person who met us at the dock: turns out he is a guide with one of the tour companies and wants to give you an "orientation" as soon as you get to your room. Really, it's just a sales pitch for the tours that he offers. We ended up taking the canoe tour--it was nice. However, they are not the only game in town.

Room Tip: The wifi was free, but I think it worked better out in the common area.

As you'll find on a cursory search, the accommodation in Tortuguero falls in two categories: high end Eco lodge, or budget cabins. La casona definitely falls in the latter. It is perfectly comfortable and clean, and there is reliable(ish) hot water, but the rooms aren't winning any points for style. We had a perfectly nice stay here, and the staff was very friendly and helpful - the average rating speaks more to the fact that we stayed in other places in Costa Rica for the same price that were much nicer. But given how hard it must be to build and fit out out rooms when you have to bring in everything by boat, maybe that's to be expected!

La casona has good value for money. The rooms are quite large and have private bathrooms with hot water. The people who run la casona are really sweet and help booking tours and transport. The boat tour with andres that la casona organized was really good. Location and wifi are good. Breakfast is simple but the Coffee is tasty.

We stayed here for 2 nights during a time when it was continually raining. The room was comfortable, and everything worked. We had a fan. The breakfasts were good, and we were able to arrange all types of activities through La Casona.

There's one issue with La Casona that could be easily rectified. The courtyard you must cross to get to most of the rooms is dirt. In the rain it becomes mud, and the result is that you must remove your shoes before going into your room or else you'll track mud into it. The stepping stones were inadequate. Perhaps the courtyard could have walkways made of rock...

Room Tip: An upstairs room might provide a view of the ocean. This is a guess.

We stayed here for 3 nights in this family hotel and had a very pleasant stay. We had booked a package with breakfast, lunch, dinner and 3 tours. All the food was very nice and various. Andres, our tour guide, knew a lot about the nature and the animals. The rooms were cleaned every day. All the staff is very friendly and helpful. It is a very good hotel for that price.
