Hotel River View, hotel in Tortuguero

Hotel River View offers riverside accommodations surrounded by lush tropical gardens in Tortuguero. All rooms feature comfortable bedding and a private bathroom.

The location could not be better! This hotel has its own boat ramp so when we arrived and departed we could do it right from the hotel. It is also right in town, so it was easy and fun to walk to restaurants. The staff members were friendly and helpful (and patient with our limited Spanish). We had a problem with our shower and they worked quickly to find a solution. They were exceedingly helpful with arranging and advising us about activities and transportation.

    The town is ok - plenty of eateries.

    The town is ok - plenty of eateries. The accommodation at Cabinas Sports Fishing was wonderful! The early morning boat trip was very enjoyable, as was the Jaguar trail in the National Park. The Budda Cafe has a nice vibe and good food. We were there in April so missed the turtle nesting season but still very much worth a visit!

    What a gem.

    What a gem. We had three nights here but in hindsight could have done two (a lot of people just do one). Two nights gives you a chance to soak up the atmosphere and explore the village from end to end. It was an experience getting there - a 1hr boat trip (which can be longer depending on the water levels). On arrival we were surprised at the number of bars and restaurants - a huge variety. Many on the waterfront and how wonderful to have no cars. Our hotel met us at the wharf and transferred our luggage. The hotels are right amongst the locals houses - so you really get to know the village and can hear all the 'goings on'. Just walking around you see the houses, some of the challenges living there, the flora and fauna. We did a motor boat tour at 9am - would recommend doing this at 6am as the forest wakes up. Its amazing on the water - seeking the birds close up, camen, monkeys and iguanas. You will see more animals on a tour of the forest but its still worth the experience. The motor boat tour includes national park entry - but I would recommend using a guide in the park as despite what you think its really hard to spot animals without the 'experienced eye'; and of course its their livelihood. I also did a night tour - there were a lot of other night tours - we walked along the route to the airport so it didn't feel super secluded - but we did see an armadillo, spiders, a snake, sloth and an iguana. Just goes to show nature is all around us - but again I would never have seen it without the experienced guide. Overall its quite an experience and would suggest Tortuguera is a 'must have' on a Costa Rica itinerary.

    Loved the fact that the boat dropped us off at the hotel's dock and picked us up here as well. Checkin was a breeze but make sure you have the cash to pay for the room and any tours. Canoe/boat tours, day hikes, night walks were arranged by the hotel in advance for very nominal rates. The tours start right at the hotel and hence very convenient. The hotel sits on the banks of the river and the views are lovely especially during dusk and dawn. We experienced torrential rain one afternoon and during the night. The rain in the afternoon did not last long. The canals are accessible by boat, canoe and kayaks. Tortuguero is laid back and a nice place to wind down and experience time float by. Great place to see Great Green Macaws fly by during dawn and dusk. We also saw the last of the turtle hatchings make their way to the sea. Wonderful sight to experience. The town and beach are easily accessible. The canals are teeming in wildlife. We saw green basilisks, iguanas, jacanas, toucans, caimans, herons and monkeys (howler, spider and capuchin). On the night walk we saw frogs (Savage's bullfrog, red-eyed tree frog, some snakes, and a sloth at close range. The hotel staff were nice. The free breakfast was an added bonus. Laundry service was available for a fee. The town was easily accessible by foot. Local food at the sodas was fulfilling. Overall a wonderful experience!

    It was like going to the Amazon River and experiencing wildlife and diversity. It was a multi cultural place with a taste of how locals villagers live , ocean access, river access and the best part is watching conservation of turtles. Turtle night tour is a must do!!?

    Town was better than pictured.

    Town was better than pictured. Walking to everything is easy. Favorite restaurants were Miss Miriams next to the football field and Budda Cafe overlooking the river. Went on three turtle tours and the canoe tour. All great. Used Tuanis Tours for 2 turtle and canoe and Leonardo for private turtle tour. Grocery store carries beer and liquor at reasonable prices.

    The Tortuguero area is considerably different from the rest...

    The Tortuguero area is considerably different from the rest of Costa Rica. Isolated from land transport, all access is done either by boat or plane. Opt for the boat if you can. It's cheap (around 8000 colones round trip from La Pavona), and despite being on a public transport you'll have a tour experience. The trip can take up to 1,5 hours, with safety conditions guarateed (life vests) and you'll be winding through the florest canals until you reach the Tortuguero sandbar. much like running down the Amazonas, The village is very small but with a great ambient of friendly people (general fact in all CR) with plenty of options for food/drinks, accomodations. Tortuguero life runs around sightseeing (National Park, turtle tours, and cannoeing in the canals). At night you'll have plenty of options for sunset and dinning. You're in a protected area for marine turtles and the mindset is all around that. Forget about bathing in the river or the beach, as one it's inhabited by crocodiles and the other with bull sharks,

    situated in a beautiful area along the canals of tortuguero. food is buffet style and of good quality. we stayed for one night and spent another at a different small hotel in tortuguero village. Heidi on reception was very helpful she organised a driver to collect us from la Pavona to guapiles, where we picked up our hire car. She also organised a motor boat trip along the canals with Angelo at 6am which was excellent we saw lots of wildlife. A wonderful start to our holiday in Costa Rica

    Perfectly located next to the river and right by town so you are close to restaurants, markets, beaches, and national park. Hot water and AC worked perfectly, and there was a big fridge inside as well. There’s also a bar with happy hour and drinks are delicious. You can enjoy a drink and watch the sunset. Staff was welcoming and friendly, even though I don’t speak much Spanish. They helped organize our trip from La Pavona and we were dropped off right in front of our hotel

    The location of the property is great, in the centre of the village and about 5/6 minutes walk from the entrance to the national park. The rooms are basic but spotlessly clean. There’s a great decking area at the back of the hotel where breakfast is served. it’s right on the river and had lovely views. I don’t think the photos do the place justice. The staff are friendly and accommodating and the morning boat trip was one of the highlights of my time in Costa Rica.

    Our stay at Casa Caribe was so pleasant and such a good value. It's an easy walk of less than five minutes from the boat dock and it was extremely clean and the air conditioning worked great! This was the only time we had AC our whole 3 weeks in Costa Rica but much needed. Tortuguero is hot. The host is super kind and friendly and made us an incredible breakfast that comes with the room. I am so glad we stayed here and would definitely stay here again!

    Great location. Very close to the beach and national park. Short walk to town. Hammocks to rest in outside. Quiet at night. I could hear the sound of the waves. Ask for a map of the town because at first it’s a little confusing. I think mostly locals stay here. No AC but it wasn’t needed. My room had 3 beds and a fan for each bed. The proprietor used an app to translate his Spanish into English for me. I was very pleased with this place.

    the location was perfect: to the left, a short walk to the beach, to the right one block, the center of town… and kids enjoying soccer in front each night. There are lower priced hostel-type accommodations and higher priced private rooms and everyone enjoys the pool and covered dining/relaxing area. The Roots tours were perfect, filling our heads with unlimited knowledge. Relaxing and enjoyable place to stay during your Tortuguero visit.

    The host was very friendly and helpful, showing us where the local shop and drinking water supply was. Anything extra we needed for the kitchen he provided. Cleaned the apartment and bedding during our stay. He offered many other things and was very helpful all round. The property is in the heart of the local community and very close to the national park entrance, as well as an easy stroll into town or to the beach.

    Very nice and clean room, especially the bathroom. The best shower we had in over two weeks in Costa Rica! Unfortunately, a mirror was missing in the room (since the rooms are very new, maybe that's the reason). The staff is very helpful and friendly, especially Carmen from the reception. She is super helpful and also took care of personal matter. She was always very supportive.

    We stayed here to experience nature. The lodge fully lived up to that, with excellent reasonable priced tours and excellent guides. Recommend the simple grounds tour for wildlife viewing. Lodge has great facilities, nice pool, and is kept very well. Meals are a bit expensive, but everything in Costa Rica is a bit expensive for what you get.
