Casa Pica Pica was very comfortable and quite. The bed is comfortable,great air conditioning, and the bathroom is very nice as well. The hosts are extremely nice and most welcoming. The location is great for those who enjoy small secluded beaches with no shops and no fuss. There are restaurants in the area to choose from and Lola's (20 minute drive) is the best place to relax with a cocktail or get food served to you on the beach front. I would go back for another visit for sure! Well worth the price!

The Lizard King was great! Not having to think about getting breakfast in the morning was comforting and helpful. The staff were incredible, very friendly and helpful. Martina, Hannah, Andres were all amazing. The whole place was very clean and they were adding some nice blue tile around and re-staining the walls. It looks great. I loved the location as well, it wasn't in the heart of Puerto but just out of it where it felt quieter and secure. Walkable to everything in town including the surrounding beaches, maybe a 10 min walk to Playa Cocles. My only complaint would be the advertised price for a weekly stay. It's in the first line in their "about" section and says $490 for week. Reached out to them asking about it, bc the "15% discount" didn't add up to their advertised price when booking on the calendar. Basically equaled to a free night but still was $546 for the week not the $490. They never acknowledged my question about the weekly stay price, I mentioned it twice while contacting the host and i guess they just ignored it. BUT thats on the host, not the Lizard King staff/hostel. We enjoyed our stay, i would definitely recommend and maybe even return someday.

Stayed at the Lizard King with a group of friends for four nights and had an incredible stay. We needed to check in early and the hosts Luis & Fresy were very accommodating. We were greeted at check in by a wonderful member of the staff named Hannah. She was an absolute pleasure and very helpful with whatever questions we had. We all extremely enjoyed getting to know this lovely lady and will miss her beautiful face. The hotel is in the perfect location if you want to be close (walking distance) to almost everything in Puerto Viejo. Three of us stayed in the Suite with Kitchen/AC/Jacuzzi and the other two in a double room with AC upstairs. Both rooms were clean and offered great amenities. We definitely took advantage of the AC! The breakfast here is really good and the upstairs lounge area is a great place to chill. You can rent bikes right from the hotel and the WIFI works great. I really can't say enough great things about the Lizard King and would absolutely stay here again. Puerto Viejo is a magical place with so much to offer. We had a fantastic two weeks in this special little town, that went by much too fast and look forward to our next visit.

This is a great place to stay while visiting Puerto Viejo and a very good value for your money. We had a suite at a good rate which includes breakfast- and the breakfast is a really nice buffet. Luis and Fresy are great people who are more than happy to help along with the highly personable staff. Location is perfect- you can walk anywhere in town from here- a decent beach swimming area is a 1 min walk and some of PV's best bars and restaurants are all within a 5 min walk. Biking is a very popular way to get around as well and renting a bike and riding south to the various beaches is a great way to experience PV. We went to down to Punta Uva one day to Sloth point and saw 4 sloths just hanging out in trees at the beach and a group of monkeys traveling in trees along the beach- this is why you come to Costa Rica. All of this is minutes away from Lizard King and their hip and comfortable accommodations. I highly recommend this place.

The apartment was a nice spot to get acquainted with Puerto Viejo for a few days before classes. The space was larger than we needed but very nice and the photos depict it very accurately. The pool was very refreshing and the neighborhood was perfect, close to restaurants and bars but an easy walk to less crowded beaches.

We had a room with private bathroom and kitchen. The AC was great and whatever our kitchen may have lacked, the employees got for us from their restaurant. The breakfasts were very tasty and the employees bent over backward to help us, give us info, and just in general make our stay more enjoyable.
