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.

We stayed for one night in this hotel. The staff was very, very nice. They lend us un umbrella for the heavy rain, and they were very helpful giving us local information. The room was simple but comfortable and clean. For 2 usd we had breakfast at the hostel. It was nice.
