We have rooms surrounding the pool in a tropical garden with a distinct Asian style. We always maintain the best quality beds and bathrooms, and with AC for the Carribbean heat! We are located 20 meters from the beach known as Salsa Brava, where you can swim safely inside the reef and watch the surfers in the wave that breaks on the outside. We have an attached Asian restaurant that serves japanese cuisine such as sushi, and also cooked dishes such as curry, teriyaki, satay, adobo with chicken, pork, tenderloin beef or vegetables!
We have attention to detail to ensure excellent customer service and friendly staff to attend to our guests needs. You will enjoy Puerto Viejo while enjoying the Lotus Garden!
The host gave me all the information I needed to find my way around Puerto Viejo and the surrounding beaches. When I broke a glass, he sent help to clean up the broken glass right away.
The room was spacious, yet musty and a bit dusty in areas. I aired it out by opening the windows or putting on the AC. The linens were clean, but spotted with old stains. I couldn't get the jets to work for the jacuzzi bath, but it didn't matter because there wasn't a drain stopper, so I had to rely only on the shower head attachment for bathing. Having a balcony was a nice touch, but the door was so hard to open and close that I never utilized it.
Overall, it would be a much nicer place if more attention to detail were paid. But at less than $70 a night for a private room, you get what you pay for.
The host was great. He gave us a lot of great info on things to do and see. The restaurant was also great. Fantastic sushi that tasted fresh. As far as the hotel rooms, they were a step up from a hostel and roomy but nothing luxurious. The service was great. Fresh linen every other day, and cleaning everyday. Also they have hot water and a fan, no AC. My girlfriend and I would stay here again if we had to, but if your looking for something more luxurious make sure you pay for the more luxurious room.
