눉Having to leave!
눇Nehle, the friendly owner, was very helpful in organizing a fantastic canoe tour for us and always on hand to assist with anything we needed including great restaurant recommendations. She has a couple of very well-behaved pets and we particularly loved playing with the kitten. Rooms are wood cabin style in keeping with Tortuguero. Basic with fan and ensuite bathroom as described on Booking.com, extremely clean, bright room with fresh linen and towels. New towels were happily supplied when we requested. After two days we were offered house-keeping (full room clean, new sheets etc..) which we were not expecting for such a budget price. Each room has it's own hammock facing the stunning green garden and we were lucky enough to spot a pair of hummingbirds feeding early one morning. Local art on the walls just adds to the special vibe of the place. We slept very well and had no issues with dogs barking in the night. We did hear some ambient noise from neighbours during the day which added to the local experience and Cabinas Tortuguero is so close to the jungle you can sometimes hear howler monkeys in the distance which is a real treat. Perfect location, 2 minutes walk from the boat dock, 250m to the huge beach and just 200m from the entrance to the national park. Handy book exchange (especially if you speak German!) and boule to take to the beach. The breakfast was delicious and very filling, eggs, fresh bread and fruit. To top this all of Nehle also offers free coffee all day long from early in the morning which was greatly appreciated! Nehle is a trained masseuse and yoga instructor so I booked a singing bowl massage on my second day which just added to the relaxation at just $25 for a full hour. The free wifi worked surprisingly well in our room. Very highly recommended. We had a wonderful stay and really felt part of the family.

눉Not recommended Dirty, old and dilapidated. Smell of dogs everywhere. Not enough towels and the ones we had were dirty. Very slow communication. Only one socket so it was hard to get our mobiles and cameras charged. No fly screen in the bathroom, Woke up with a cockroach sitting next to my pillow. Cracks between the floor boards were so big that it came in from below the cabin underneath our moskito net. Room bot bring made everyday. With the waste in the bathroom very unhygenic. Dogs were constantly barking, even at night.
눇Great breakfast. Very friendly staff.
