Jenny and her staff were great at communicating options of food and out door adventure of Tortugeuro. Jenny is a humble business woman, who has called this area her home for many years, and has built this quaint and cozy hostel from the ground up, welcomes you to hostel as if you were her guest in her home. The love of flora and fauna is apparent with wonderful variety of flowering plants and layout out, it is sure to help you decompress, while swinging in a hammock, or eating one of her delicious banana pancakes for breakfast. Always had hot water, except when we didn't have water at all, just for a short while, as one day mother nature took other and gave us heavy tropical showers for the day, that would have messed up any modern system of control! This was a great, safe, cozy space, that allowed simple living and a good nights sleep. When in Tortugeuro, value for money, I happily give my colons$ to stay right here, again.
??? We couldn't stay longer! 3 nights were wonderful note: do not leave ANY, I mean any unwrapped food out in your room, you are sure to have hundreds of tiny little ants capitalizing on your folly. This all acknowledged by one semi melted candy in its wrapper exposed to air in a bag... amazing little creatures. Make sure you eat outside your room, or only store food in air tight containers.
fruit salad and pancake with banana as breakfast Great tips about the tours which you can book in the hotel for the same price 50 meters from the beach
Nice staff very helpfull. We took a boat to moin and the lady owner came in the morning with us to the departure point just to make sure that everything was ok. Healthy breakfast with fresh fruits.
We went to tortuguero on november 2nd and it was the last day of the turtle end season carnaval. The place is just NeXT to the dance school were was the disco night. We almost did not sleep because of the noise.
La Casona was a great place to stay!!! they came to pick us up at the dock, explained everything aboug Tortuguero, and Roberto, one of our guides even went with us for a walk to see baby turtles!!! great breakfast and great owner! super nice!!! the internet worked :)
La Casona is a simple place to stay, its not a 5star hotel so if you are the kind of traveler that likes to be in luxury this is not the place :) but remember, you are in Costa Rica and specialy in Tortuguero, so there will be wild life! take that always in consideration before! that said......La Casona was Perfect!!! great quality/price!!
Close to the beach, staff very friendly. Equipment of kitchen very well. Breakfast was included. Sara gives some good tour advices.
Friendly staff, hummocks, fresh fruit for breakfast
Room had a strong smell of mold, mattress had a bad smell, room wasn't very clean
The family that run La Casona are lovely, going out of their way to help at any opportunity, helping out with tours etc. Breakfast is pretty small and basic but always nice. Rooms are also basic but comfortable, with a fan provided. Common area with hammocks is a really cool place to chill out. Tortuguero isnt big at all so everything is pretty close and the beach is just 50 metres away. That said, it is set away from the bars etc near where the boats dock, so you´ll always get a good nights sleep. Would stay here again if in Tortuguero.
Lovely helpful staff, nice cabins, good food!
Nice location, Sara and her family were really friendly and helpful. The tours booked for us with Israel and Andre were fabulous!
La Casona is a great place to stay while in Tortuguero. It is located very close to the beach and particularly the food in its own restaurant is great! The staff is very friendly and the turtle tour with Andres was a real highlight of our trip!
We shared the room with the one or the other cockroach and flying bug ...
Friendly and helpfull staff. Simple but tasty meals in the restaurant. Can't beat the price/quality ratio in the tourist place Tortuguero. One minut walk from the central boat dock.
- employees are very nice, cooperative and polite - cano tour was great, our guide Johanni (don't know how to spell his name) was a super guide, patient and he knows a lot about all the animals and plants. He also speaks good English. - location
- the room was a complete disaster... Supersmall and filthy... Filled with small termite which we complained about after 1 night, but the owner told us she couldn't help it. They woud clean it, but they never did. - we booked a Turtle tour at la casona as well, the guide wasn't very nice, we were together with 2 spanish people, she kept on nagging about the fact that she also had to speak English and she appeared to not be very enthousiastic. The tour is supposed to be following lots of rules to protect the turtles... Which we support of course. After 1,5h it looked like we all weren't going to see one. But one appeared anyway... Because our time was almost out... All rules seemed to be forgotten (complaint about whole organization... Not just our guide) and everybody (approx. 60 people) stormed to the turtle, she got scared of course and quickly left without laying eggs. It made us feel bad to intrude nature like this. -breakfast was a joke...only dry toast with fruit and bad coffee while costa ricans make a great breakfast everywhere.
Breakfast was good. Location was convenient. Everything is relative in Tortuguero. The whole town is dirty when not muddy. A little gravel on the path from the lobby to the rooms would save guests and staff a lot of dirt in the rooms. Very rustic but the whole town is and I don't really know if you could do much better for the price.
Staff lost reservation for 2 rooms. Manager was out. Ended up with four adults in one small room for first night. They provided a full, instead of continental, breakfast the next day. Manager apologized by email that mistake was hers. Would list the cold showers but they actually felt good in the heat and humidity. Each room came with a gecko which was fine but the bugs not so much. Stay busy with activities like we did so you don't have to spend a lot of time in your room. It worked out fine in the end.
Sara, the host, is very kind and will do everything to accommodate you and make your stay a great one. Have way between the beach and the docks, the hotel, in a nice setting, is well located to get around.
The room and the bed was okay. THe bathroom was a bit smelly and the water not always hot. The wifi acts up a bit but good for Tortuguero.
Staff was very friendly and helpful. We could use their own fridge and kitchen.
Bad mouldy smell in the bathroom.
Nicely decorated room and bathroom. Good price and location and friendly staff.
Included breakfast would have been a nice touch (for a few bucks extra would have been fine too). No wifi in the room, which would be nice when it poors rain for hours on end.
Very friendly and helpfull staff - very clean room
Good location, clean and comfortable
Not the best value, wifi was poor as was the breakfast, not much to do in Tortuguero once you have done a boat trip and the short 2km walk..... out of 70,000 hectares!
This hotel offers simple, but nice double rooms with private bathrooms, as well as an onsite restaurant. The rooms are very clean and come with a proper ventilator (not aircon) and all you need. The moskito nets seal perfectly. The location is just about 150 meters from the boat arrival/departure point, so only short walk. The staff is very nice and even it was not part of our booking, they offered us free breakfast. In Tortuguero definitely one of the best places to stay for a mid budget. The restaurant is nice and surounded by a nicely maintained garden area. The hotel is very safe. Definitely recommendable!!
Great location, friendly staff, breakfast. The hotel offers excellent tours with a great guide!
We felt very welcome and comfortable. The location and the staff was very nice. We only stayed for a night, but we would definately come back. With best regards from Germany :-)
Good location - near the seaside and the center of the town. Friendly owner - Andres.
No air conditioning - it gets very hot in the rooms. Extremely noisy if you stay below someone else.
These jungle-like cabins are situated in a perfect location between the beach, opposite the football field, and 20metres from the centre of town, the national park and the river. The cabins were comfortable, clean and very good value for money. It is also situated right next door to Miriam's who cooks up amazing Caribbean style food!
The breakfast was poor. You just got a plate of sliced fruit, coffee, and toast with jam, which attracted a lot of flies so you couldn't really eat.
The staff was awesome- very friendly and helpful. The hotel restaurant was very good along with the complementary breakfast we got.
We stayed here for 2 nights. What a wonderful place. Staff was super nice. Clean rooms nice showers. Very quiet area. Owner could help us out with information about the tours.
Our ceiling fan was noicy
