This place has what you need, but seemed to not live up to its potential. We didn't expect luxury in the little remote village of Tortuguero, but many small things seemed to contribute to a less than stellar stay. The host could've been friendlier, the sheets didn't fit well,

These are more of a hostel type accommodation than a hotel. Rooms are very basic, but clean, with free standing fans. It says “free toiletries” in the description, which is basically a piece of soap the size of a stamp, and toilet paper. The hotel/hostel is right next to the

It´s in front of the beach, excellent location, very kind people, the breakfast is not included. They have a pool near the cabinas, very quiet place, no problems with noise. hammocks were great, and the rooms were very comfortable.

how is the swimming at the beach?
You CANNOT go swimming there, definitely not recommandable because of the strong currents. Splashing in the water, on the other hand, is alright and fun, if you do not go further than up to your belly, I recommand the Miss Miriam 2, because itÄS got the best view over the ocean. Ask for the last room on the top floor. Have fun in Costa Rica!

"Located steps away from the sea."
"I seem to have good luck contacting them directly for my room help."
"All the rooms were pretty much the same from what I could tell.. Very rustic but comfortable."
