Puerto Viejo is a vibrant beach town, the Lizard King Hotel is on the edge of town on the main street just a 3 minute walk from the center and across the street from the beach. It's a great location to be where you're close to everything but far enough to get away from it all. The staff were very pleasant and had many suggestions about the best beaches and places to eat. The rooms have varnished wooden floors. The interior courtyard has a nice pool in the center, plants and resting chairs outside each room. Overall, I found the hotel very clean, quiet, relaxing, and while the decor is made of precious wood, it was certainly comfortable. I thought it was a good value and would stay here again. In case you're looking for other commodities they have air conditioning options and all rooms come with free breakfast and WiFi
Everything was perfect. Comfortable queen bed, Air Conditioning Room!!!! which is hard to find here in Puerto Viejo, flat screen cable TV, mini fridge, and free coffee in the room. Can't beat this! Couldn't have asked for more. Just wish we had known about this hotel before! It is all in a perfect location. Looking forward to our next trip
We should had came to this hotel first..
One of the best places we have stayed in Costa Rica. The owners were very friendly and helpful!!! The receptionist was very helpful in organizing our trip to Tortuguero, including transfer, hotel as well as a tour guide there. Great experience with staff. We got great tips what to do, where to eat - many of the restaurants serve good food!), what beach is the best, you really feel they will take care of you. WIFI works great, beds are very comfy, rooms super clean and cozy, breakfast prepared by the staff is very tasty and serve 2X1 special cocktails done. Well done! Wish everybody would do it this way... !!!
wish the vacation was longer
Breakfast included was delicious every morning and also having the pool to cool off in was very nice.
Unfortunately there was renovations going on so was a bit noisy during the day. Also the wooden floorboards meant you could hear hotel guests moving above and outside the rooms.
All was great. Great location, friendly hosts, relaxing atmosphere, delicious pancakes for breakfast, a nice swimming pool. the hosts helps you a lot with making recommendations to restaurants, tours, etc. I recommend this hotel.
The Lizard King Hotel is in the perfect location in town and across the street from the beach. The owners/hosts are very nice and welcoming. The property is a beautiful wooden hotel with a swimming pool. The rooms are simple and charming, very clean. Breakfast is delicious. I definitely recommend staying at The Lizard King Hotel when you come to the Caribbean.
Friendly staff, lovely wooden interior & furniture, beautiful second story overlooking the town and ocean, nice location just 50 meters from beach and the center of town. Nice place in general - Puerto Viejo is a really nice place, everybody treats you like a friend.
Everything was perfect . Staff and Owners went out of their way to make our stay wonderful . We wish we could have stayed longer! Lovely place in a perfect location with the very best hosts ! Looking forward to our next trip.
We had to leave because our room was pre-booked months in advance by another couple
This motel serves the beach crowd and nature lover well. Owners are great, do their best to take care of their customers. I feel this is hotel is above average for this area, would book there again!
Not a reflection on the property but Costa Rica as a whole is very trashy and very overpriced. Theft is rampant.
I travel here a lot for business. It has a great location, rooms are clean and breakfast is delicious. This is my favorite hotel in the region. You can't go wrong here.
We came back for the second time and were greeted like old friends. We got a free upgrade because of a small issue in the room we were originally given. Breakfast is so nice, especially the pancakes and the homemade bread.
The cleaning of the rooms is a bit at random. Sometimes at 10, sometimes at 14 and sometimes even later.
I had a comfortable queen size, my room had a frige and LED cable television. The breakfast was delicious and the location is where everything is at from a short waking distance. The staff was very welcoming as well.
Having to leave my vacation.
Great breakfast that was included. Bike rental at hotel. Friendly and helpful staff. Wifi. Close to centre of town.
Very hard beds... More so than anywhere else we stated. Pool didn't have very much sunlight so not ideal if you're wanting to sit around and sun bath but still nice to cool off in. Undergoing renovation but noise not too bothersome. No in-room safe.
Bethany at the Lizard King really looks after her guests. I had an issue with my transport to the airport at the end of my stay and she helped me immensely - I made my flight, which was a shame really as I'd have preferred to stay in Costa Rica! The location is great, the facilities are comfortable, very clean - great pool! There are cheaper hostels in town but they don't have warm showers, aircon, a pool or such helpful hosts.
Nothing, I thoroughly enjoyed my stay in paradise.
Beautiful room with A/C next to the beach, great location, delicious breakfast and cocktails, the staff was very helpful with information
nothing all was good.
Friendly reception, generous room. Central location in a great non pretentious resort.
Work in progress
Great place in the middle of the town but realy quiet place.
people of the staff is nice.
First i stayed in the room in the first floor. It was impossible to sleep because it was very noisy. The floor is made of wood. So if you want to sleep you have to stay in the second floor.
Excellent rapport qualité prix !!
Location on the main street in Puerto Viejo center but not where all the noise is so it's the best of both worlds, queen size bed for comfort, receptionist was helpful and nice, and the breakfast was very delicious
nothing, everything was good.
Bethany & Luis were terrific hosts. We stayed in the large suite and it was great. The delicious breakfast was included and the pool was a delight. Walking distance to everything. I would highly recommend a stay at Lizard King!
We had two beds in our room and one was a normal mattress and the other was wafer thin, so my friend and I kept trading off.
Location , Location , Friendly , helpful , owners , Very safe place , close to best food in town- Chile Rojo and the best beach- Punta Uva. Also free breakfast was excellent .
The staff was friendly and it was close to the beaches where we wanted to spend our time.
The girl at reception was so kind with us.
We had a suite room but there was nor balcony neither a place outside the room to relax and only a small window inside. Noisy and humid.
location just outside the noisy main drag; nice pool; good breakfast
Excessive price difference for AC in rooms-especially as this is a hot climate on the Caribbean coast
