ABOUT KAYA'S PLACE
Kaya's Place is a 26 room lodge on the stunning Black Beach in Puerto Viejo, Costa Rica. Built in the Afro-Caribbean "Rustico" style, the hotel is artistic and unique. Local woods and materials have been used in their natural state, making each room different and beautiful. Every space you encounter will be a pleasurable experience. The sound of the waves is always in the background, soothing and tranquil, guaranteed to take you away from the stress of everyday life. Inside the hotel, you will find many places to relax. The reception area is more like a living room, with a gigantic sofa, television, people to chat with and view of the ocean. The large deck upstairs has a wonderful ocean view with hammocks and sofas - perfect for reading or taking a siesta. In the back, gardens line the walkway, filled with local plants and flowers. A covered sitting area in the garden offers another opportunity to meet and enjoy the company of others while you stay with us. Our restaurant is spacious and open with view of the ocean and a small creek with fish, water lilies, crab and other water life.
Located in Puerto Viejo on the Caribbean Coast, the area is blessed with natural beauty in the form of dense jungle with impressive flora and fauna and some of the world's most beautiful beaches. Kaya's Place is part of the growing eco-tourism industry that supports the preservation of almost 2 million square meters of primary rainforest. Taxes from this industry support the many national reserves and efforts to maintain the natural resources. We are dedicated to preserving these resources while sharing it with all the people that come to know this amazingly beautiful part of Costa Rica.
Our recent renovation of Kaya's Place was completed with the same philosophy. No lumber or materials were taken from the primary rainforest. Much was recycled wood or dead fall from local farms and lumber that had washed up from the ocean and rivers. With these natural and renewable materials, we achieved a unique character with rustic and artistic designs.

Our Door is Always Open at Kaya's Place - We Hope to See You Soon!
we arrived in Porta Veija late and everything was great . My wife and I were tired from traveling all day long but still had time to have a drink at their outside Bar and just walked across the road to see the beach.
I would stay there again thumbs up.
nice little individual casitas on the bus line close to town
Great location, right out of town, but walkable. We had a room in the back of main building, which didn't get much air flow, and felt very damp and muggy with the rain. I'd recommend a room with the window facing the road.
Cheap, and really nice and helpful front desk ladies. Good breakfast.
Cute little space within walking distance of the beach. Very friendly staff and just an overall cool environment. A wonderful place to stay if you're looking to bum around Puerto Viejo or Manzanillo.
I loved my stay at Kaya's place, especially the uber helpful and friendly bar man whos name unfortunately escapes me. He made sure I had a safe and reasonable taxi on the day I was leaving and custom ordered vegetarian pizza for me at their on-site restaurant. Dawna was great and upgraded me for free when they ran out of the ocean-facing private rooms because a large party came in unexpectedly. She always kept up great communication and even gave tips on how to get to Kaya's from the pacific coast. The room was a double queen-sized beds, ACed garden-view room with a private patio and was quiet, COLD :-D, and had plenty of room for two traveling friends.
The night guard makes you feel super secure and the beach across the road is very peaceful.
I would recommend renting a bike if you're a single girl going into the town after dark and taking a taxi (~1000 colones if you negotiate upfront) if you stay out very late at night.
If you're taking the bus in from San Jose, ask the driver to drop you off at Kaya's instead of the bus station in Puerto Viejo. If you have big bags under the bus, make sure you put them in last, after everyone else puts theirs in, so the bus driver actually lets you off.
