About this listing
We have recently remodeled four wide rooms , all with private bath, hot water and air conditioned.
One room is only for two people with a queen bed, another one has queen bed and a single bed, and two rooms have queen bed and a two stairs bed, for an occupancy of four people.
we don't have TV sets and telephone in the rooms, but there is free Wi-Fi in the rooms and in the restaurant, Il Giardino en la Playa!!, that is facing the Ocean front.
The furniture are simple but functional, the bed of good quality and the cleaning and hygiene are absolutely of first importance for us, both for the rooms and for the preparation of our legendary recipes.
We are located at 100 metres East from the Public Pier, directly on the fine sand Beach, where sea turtles come to feed on the weeds of the bottom, and where is possible to watch a lot of sea bird and Dolphins.
In the Mangroves in the back of the Hotel lives a group of Capucine Monkeys that, often come to eat the fruit of the restaurant while Scarlet macaws come to feed on the Almond trees of the front , on the beach.
The bus stop is at 800-900 metres from us, the ferry boat from Golfito is docking at the Public pier, at 150 metres, and the road from S. Jose' is now almost perfect.
for staying of any length, is possible to study some kind of plan that include breakfast, lunch and dinner, in any combination, up to offer sandwiches made with our fresh made bread to the people that want to hike of do some sea tour, all things that we can help to organize directly, using our net or safe and professional collaborators, including too flights reservation and car renting.
This Hotel/ Restaurant is our home too, where we live, sleep and work, so we will receive you as some of our long time friends, with all the benefit of this , but we don't have friends that aren't less than educated, polite, clean and interesting.
We are available for to try to satisfy any needs as special diet or to help with planning your trip.
We try to maintain our rates the lowest is possible and we need your help for this: please, turn lights and the Air conditioner off when you are not in the room, and don't waste the precious water of the Osa Peninsula.
We stayed here two nights and it was exactly what we expected. Everyone who worked there was kind and welcoming and helped us whenever we needed it. The food at the restaurant was great too! I would definitely stay there again.
As mentioned in a previous comment, this accommodation is more suitable for backpackers on a budget. If there's one place in Costa Rica where you should spend the extra money for accommodations, it is definitely in Puerto Jimenez. Spend the extra money. We normally do not like to put negative comments, however you should know that the rooms are behind a restaurant (down a dark and crowded hallway) and are noisy and lack intimacy. Please note that since the restaurant is built on a swamp and there's no window or screen in the bathroom, you can expect some creepy crawlers. We did not feel that the ad reflected reality and we were disappointed. The only positive we were able to find is that the host is kind.
The room was ok, spacy and clean.
Room service was nonexistent, but we only stayed for 3 days, so we could live with that.
Breakfast was a bit on the lean side, with 2 slices of toast per guest and a small cup of jam.
The pizza was great, though!
The room was ok but nothing special. But we had a private bathroom so that was ok. We didn't have a view and the A/C made a lot of noise also the tv that was standing next to our door and was playing really loud! Giulio himself was friendly. We went to eat in the restaurant and that was nice.
The host and his staff wes very friendly and made our stay really pleasant.
The place is beautifully located next to the sea.
Wir haben 10 Tage bei Giulio verbracht. Das Zimmer hat ein Fenster mit Blick direkt in den Mangrovenwald. Hier kann man mit etwas Glück schon morgens nach dem Aufstehen viele Tiere in ihrer natürlichen Umgebung bewundern. Die Gezeiten wirken sich an dieser Stelle stark aus, so dass je nach Tageszeit bei Ebbe oder Flut eine ganz neue Welt zu sehen ist. Bei ungünstiger Wind und Wetterlage können Faulgase aus dem Sumpf ins Zimmer gelangen, was anfangs irritiert aber echte Naturfreunde nicht abschrecken sollte. Die Zimmer werden täglich gereinigt und mit neuen Handtüchern und Bettzeug ausgestattet. Das Frühstück (inclusive) war typisch italienisch mit heißen Getränken, Toastbrot und Marmelade zusätzlich mit einer tollen Auswahl an lokalen Früchten angerichtet. Das zugehörige Restaurant ist im Ort sehr beliebt, wird in vielen Reiseführern erwähnt und hat schon Preise gewonnen. Giulio hat sogar Fische für uns zubereitet die ich im Meer gefangen habe. Sehr schön war, dass wir jederzeit 2 Kajaks von Giulio benutzen durften, die direkt vor dem Restaurant am Golfo Dulce parken. So konnten wir die nahegelegenen Mangrovenwälder auch vom Boot aus entdecken und auf dem Meer sogar ganz viele Delfine hautnah erleben - fantastische Erlebnisse die von den lokalen Tourismus Agenturen teuer verkauft werden!
Vielen Dank Giulio!
Han sido unos dias estupendos en la casa de Giulio y su familia! Los doce integrantes del grupo han recibido un trato excepcional! El restaurante merece mención especial por la calidad de sus platos y su atención! Han sido un total de tres dias divididos en dos tramos en los que nos hemos sentido como en casa
