    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.

    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!!

    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.

    Very friendly and helpful staff. They let us have the entire second floor. They recommend Castor for canoe tours, which we did and lived. He seems to be the best in the area, very knowledgeable.

    Hard to get rid of mosquitos, so bring repellant and cover up.

    Sara and Andres are great hosts. Andres is a great guide too. He can learn you anything about tortuguero. Food menu of the place is ok and not too expensive. Location is near beach, shops and restaurants. Rooms are very basic. Dont expect 5 star equipment.

    No fridge in the room.
