We have just returned from a 4 night stay at the VIP and we are completely rested and satisfied. The facility far exceeded our expectations. It is in the forest and was clearly built with the utmost respect for the environment. The gardens are magnificent. We saw spider monkeys, toucans and many other animals and birds in the area.

I stayed in this hotel for 2 nights and i was positive surprised! Its a little bit far from the beach, but the rooms are very nice and the garden is beautiful! And the best of this hotel is the owner Mariam! Very helpfull and friendly. Its a really nice place for quiet stay outside the tourist machinery.

I recently stayed at the VIP this past November. I have to say that overall I had a great experience. Our room was always clean, breakfast was made every morning (delicious) and the staff was very friendly. I loved that there was a kitchen area to make snacks at night. We went to the supermarket and cooked. The hotel is... More

If you want a quite relaxing and recovering stay, surely this is the right place. Just came back from our holidays and batteries are fully charged again, thanks to the quiteness, natural enviroment, personal attention of staff and location standards. I don't usually repeat holiday destination, but will surely return to this ideal hotel shortly. :))

We were really pleased with our stay at VIP Hotel Playa Negra. The room was very spacious- two bedrooms, kitchen, living area, and porch. We were glad to have the space because we went during the "green season" and we did get quite a bit of rain. There's a nice pool, beautiful manicured vegetation, and a covered lounge area, where...

This is an apartment hotel, and you will get lots of space. Perfect place to stay, if you are going to stay, a long time in Puerto Viejo. But prepare yourself, that it lies approximately 3 km from the city, and about one kilometer from the beach. The hotel has an okay swimming pool. Very kind staff, and good breakfast.... More

The hotel is VERY secluded and hard to find. The owner Marian, is the kindest, sweetest hostess. She greeted us with a huge umbrella, as it was pouring, and a hug. I think the hotel is quite new, or renamed/refurbished. There was only one other couple staying there at the time. The rooms are HUGE (two bedrooms, full kitchen, nice... More

Awesome. The resort was beautiful and the care and attention we received from Marian, Dilan and her staff made our vacation better than I could have imagined.
