A bit of tropical paradise by the sea. The gardens were beautiful and the cabins are fight in town. The shower was a bit difficult but other than that it was a simple, no frills, paradise location. There is a communal kitchen but you are only feet away from some great places to eat.

I stayed at Hoel Guarana as part of a course so I did not know much about it before arriving. I was pleasantly surprised to find this little haven in Puerto Viejo, a lovely seaside town with some noisier streets so this was a quiet find I would return to again. I experienced good and responsive service regarding two issues...

This hotel was a great find. It's perfectly located with a supermarket, and a laundry a stone's throw away, and close to many restaurants. Try Bread and Chocolate around the corner! The room was clean, spacious, and had screened windows and mosquito nets. It was cleaned each day. They told us the wifi only worked in reception, but we had...

We enjoyed a spacious, clean double room. Liked how all the units are surrounded by a lovely garden and maximize privacy. Rocking chair and hammock to enjoy on own deck. Small and basic kitchen...made it a bit tough to dance around when other guests were cooking as well. Could benefit from a bit more dishes & utensils. The common area...

I was looking for some authentic hotel in Puerto Viejo, yet my criteria was clean and safe... This place nailed it all... Nice, cozy, clean with wonderful reception girl Alma, who made my stay just phenomenal with her knowledge (look for her when there.. she knows places to go and things to do :))

Continued with relaxing in the entry area and walking to the centre and beach. Or just reading ša book or surfing on PC available for all. Evening relax in rooms with mosquito nets, clean...

Second time staying here. Highly recommend this establishment to relax. Each balcony has a hamhook to relax in with a tropical garden in the centre courtyard. Guarana is off the main stretch where all the bars and restaurants are which make for the quietness.

This place is awesome. The boss is very very friendly and kind, he will make you feel welcome in the first place. The cabinas are very clean and tidy. Every bed has an own mosquito net. The location is also perfect.

My girlfriend and I recently stayed one night at Cabinas Guarana, and that was plenty. The hotel does offer a great atmosphere with Cabinas surrounded by lush plants and little front porches with hammocks and rocking chairs. Inside the rooms, however, quality is not as evident. The bottoms of my feet were soon black from walking on the dirty floor,...

Short walk to the main street and beach area, but far away to provide safety and a quiet nights. Tons of restaurants within walking distance. ATMs nearby. Pharmacy and Grocery store close by as well. Front staff was extremely helpful and they also offer laundry service for ~$3/kg. The bedsheets could use some upgrade. Ventilation is decent. It can get...
