10/10 Exceptional

Beautiful place in a lovely jungle setting!
So beautiful, amazing garden grounds, and the cabina, wow! So roomy, awesome little kitchen, pretty shower (tile mosaic), ceiling fan kept me cool despite no AC. Great Ed location. Breakfast brought to my table on my porch each morning. The cabina was so well made! Restaurant is yummy. So close to the most beautiful, mellow beach. I’d definitely stay again!!

Great family based hotel. Have to admit it was very clean and beautiful interior, friendly staff and great owner. He let us stay even few hours before they check in because we arrived way earlier. Morning breakfast was delicious and we had direct contact with the owner to accommodate the time (from 8am-10am) also been provided a menu for breakfast - 3 different types: Healthy; Tico and Kids. Which is very cool and we could change it how do we like. Around the house was also very clean and beautiful with birds songs and other animal’s sounds so it was amazing like in the middle of the jungle. We enjoyed every moment being in this beautiful hotel, I’d definitely visit again and give them firm 4 stars hotel-Amazing, strongly recommending!

10/10 Exceptional

This property exceeded our expectations! It’s beautiful and simple. It’s comfortable and staff is so friendly. We had our rooms cleaned daily! We had monkeys, toucans, Macaws among Agoutis and other creatures right on our patio. Swimming pool is clean and the landscape around it was beautiful. The hostesses are super nice people! I would stay here again. The only downside was the distance to the beach. None of the properties in this area have direct access to the beach therefore you have to take a little trail for 10 mins walk. Due to the raining season being awful in 2021, the path to the beach was an adventure itself. The beach is beautiful and clean but the rip current and waves made it unsafe for children. Apparently it was also due to the torrential storms otherwise the Playa Chiquita has tranquil waters.

Nice and relaxing place
I had a nice and relaxing stay at El Nido. If you want to be close to Puerto Viejo and the nightlife (shopping, restaurants, bars) but you also want a peacefull stay this is the place to go. It was about a 10min drive from Puerto Viejo and easy to go to by taxi or tuk tuk. At day time it is also a very nice ride on bicycle that makes it easy to go to all of the nearby beaches. The owners are helpfull with a arranging tours.
