My sister and I just had the pleasure of staying 2 nights at the coconut grove 2bedroom apartment. The pictures depict it perfectly and the location cannot be beat (across the road from the beach, minutes walk to puerto Viejo centre, bars, restaurants etc). The kitchen is sufficient for making meals if you prefer to stay in and the wifi worked great. The guesthouse had plenty of hammocks and seats which were perfect for reading or relaxing. Heidi herself was friendly, informative and attentive as a host and had plenty of local knowledge which will assist with planning aspects of your daily activities. If you're looking for affordable, safe and enjoyable accommodation on the Caribbean side of Costa Rica I cannot recommend Heidi's guesthouse enough! Thank you so much for our delightful stay!
Heidi is the consummate travel host! When I was having challenges in setting up my shuttle transfer from San Jose to Puerto Viejo she took the lead and booked it for me! I could have stayed in the hostel but chose the privacy of the apartment as I was there for 28 days and have no regrets w/ this choice. The shower was huge and I never experienced a problem with a lack of hot water... waking up to my own private kitchen was also a blessing. the location is excellent as the town is literally just down the street but late night noise from the local bars and eateries was rarely a concern. If I ever needed assistance with any matter she was an excellent resource and if she couldn't address it personally she would direct me to the appropriate party no problem. The maid who came to clean daily was very efficient yet pleasant as well and Beckie, the on-sight maintenance man, could fix anything on the spot if need be. The house alarm system was also very reliable - this would be Lila the German Shepard, she was always available to keep company as she patrolled the grounds chasing off stray dogs and what not.
All in all life at the Coconut Grove Hostel was just what this newbie to global travel needed and I left Costa Rica felling relaxed and already looking forward to my return next year before I had even left!! All the best to you Heidi... see you sometime down the road soon I hope.
Good location, nice commons area.
Super spacious, great location on the main road (yet not loud), incredible patio area with couches and hammocks that was the highlight of our early evenings.
My friends and I arrived for our two last nights in Puerto Viego. Heidi was accommodating, checked in on us to make sure everything was okay, cleaned our room each night...I really can't say anything bad about our stay. We were in walking distance to the "hot spots" of the area but the hotel was far enough from the street so that even though we were on the first floor it was quiet and we felt safe (we had barred windows, and Heidi lives right above the room we had - it was comforting knowing she was right there if we needed her). I would definitely recommend this place to someone who is looking to travel in comfort and has a tight budget.
Heidi was very helpful and friendly, lots of local recommendations for places to visit and eat. Accommodation was clean and had everything we needed. Plumbing was a little dodgy lukewarm shower, blocked toilet but all in all good value for money.
This is the final rate, including any fees from the host and Airbnb.
