6,3 Good
Pros: The outdoor environment was very nice and natural. Swimming pool and Jacuzzi was in outdoor environment and was very nice. They had some activities like cocktail workshop and yoga which was nice and unique.
Cons: The main problem was the amount of money I had been charged was double of what hotel printed in my receipt! I asked for reason and they said there is an agency who charged you! The room was not very clean, the bed cover had some stain on it. The bathroom was very slippery and I fell down once and got lots of pain and still not sure if my elbow is fine. The room was all in white with white light which is a bit gloomy in the rain forest.
9,6 Excellent
Pros: Professional staff, always providing the best service they can. The reception were perfect as were the waiting and bar staff in the beach club. Exclusive feel, great value for money for the rooms, breakfast and lunch too. The evening meals were not great however use trip adviser for recommendations nearby as this worked for us! The beach is gorgeous one of the best in the area and so quiet
Cons: The evening meals in Neo
4,0 Okay
Pros: Pool and jacuzzi are nice! Also the location of the hotel is very good.
Cons: The rooms as the queensize bed is was too small for 2 people and because the ground is white, everything gets dirty very quickly and becomes disgusting. Also the bed and everything was a little wet all the time. The breakfast is also not satisfying, there is not even fresh orange juice but from concentrate.

10,0 Excellent
Pros: Really beautiful place, nice location, friendly staff and value for money.
7,9 Good
Pros: Very stylish design. We love the way the room is recoloured every day, even the paintings change! Spacious room. The staff are very warm and polite. Two very nice pools and a hot jacuzzi (Shame about the chairs - see below)
Cons: There is not one comfortable chair anywhere in the property. A real triumph of design over practicality. The fact that everything is white means it is starting to show its age. It is very expensive really for the quality but welcome to Costa Rica. Service in the bar restaurant is a little slow but not so one needed to complain.
5,0 Okay
Cons: Very expensive for what you get. This is not a 5 star hotel. The restaurant is completely overpriced with very slow service. Paid for a junior suite and was given a deluxe room without compensation. Rooms smell of mildew/mold. Ground floor rooms are surrounded by a swamp

Pros: A nice Caribbean area, but the other coast is much more diverse.
Cons: As for the hotel. Sorry for the bad rating but we did not like the stay. There was a terrible stink in the room and on the terrace. I think you could find better and cheaper accommodation in the area. I do not recommend for a longer stay.
10,0 Excellent
Pros: Andrea, who took care of us, is amazing!!! It is a great place for relaxing, close to both beach and forest! Waking up in the morning to watch amazing forest right on your balcony and hearing the birds monkeys etc was a wonderful way to wake up every morning. The Hotell is very good located and the room tidy and pretty. The staff was very helpful and friendly and we definetly recommend this place
10,0 Excellent
Pros: This property was an excellent location backing right up to the jungle. We enjoyed relaxing on our spacious patio and enjoying the sights and sounds of the rainforest. We woke every morning to the sounds of tropical birds and howler monkeys in the trees surrounding the hotel. All accommodations were exceptionally clean and comfortable. The pool was awesome in the jungle setting as well. Andrea was an excellent host and he made some of the best cocktails of our trip (especially his caipirinhas) and his recommendations for dinner were superb. We definitely look forward to staying at Bugabutik again! With much appreciation, Brittany and Mike

10,0 Excellent
Pros: Hotel Bugabutik is amazing. Owner Andrea is so kind and helpful. The resort is very beautiful and clean. Room was big and nice. The view out of the room was amazing. All you could see was wilderness. We even saw some animals out of our balcony. Hearing all these noises of the jungle is so peaceful. The area around the pool makes you feel like you're in the middle of the jungle. There is a bar with a tasty breakfast and through the day you can drink coffee, tea or cacao. There is also a pooltable. We really enjoyed staying there. Bugabutik won't let you down if you're looking for calm and peaceful place with a soul. 200m away is a beautiful sandy beach Cocles where you can surf, swim or just enjoy a stunning view. Puerto Viejo is 2 minutes drive away. We really love Bugabutik hotel.

8,3 Excellent
Pros: Nicely located, clean place. Stayed in one of the bigger bungalows just for one night. Enjoyed it.
8,3 Excellent
Pros: The lodge is beautiful and tucked away from it all. It's a little bit of a walk to the ocean, but not too bad. The rooms were nice and gave a feeling of a tree house. Lush gardens to walk through and a small, but nice, pool. Breakfast was included and very nice. We only stayed one very quick night on our way to Panama.
10,0 Excellent
Cons: The shower temperature changed constantly
9,2 Excellent
Pros: All stuff members were excellent. More wild life seen than at any other hotel ever. Anteater, agoutis, poisson dart frog, macaws, lizards, etc. We loved the common area near the reception area

Hotel Boutique Indalo - Puerto Viejo de Talamanca - Bedroom

Overview Reviews
Located in Puerto Viejo de Talamanca, Hotel Indalo is a 2-minute drive from Playa Cocles and 8 minutes from Punta Uva Beach. Featured amenities include luggage storage, a library, and a safe deposit box at the front desk. Free self parking is available onsite.
9,6 Excellent
Pros: Super convenient location, 5 min walk from the center yet remote enough to be completely quiet. The building and amenities are basically new, and everything was tastefully arranged. Bed was very large and comfortable, allowing us to get good rest after a string of hotels with squeaky beds. The owners live on property and pay attention to how it’s run.
Cons: I only wish breakfast had been included and it’d be nice for the property to offer some extra services like bike rental, laundry etc. You can get all this in town but the convenience of getting it from your hotel would be welcome at this price range.
9,6 Excellent
Pros: Paula at reception is great and was always available to answer our questions and she even helped us make some coffee since there isn't any coffee/tea in the rooms, only a fridge. Great location, everything is within walking distance and it's just at the backside of town which means it isn't loud at night. Beds were comfortable, hot shower, and we loved the rocking chairs on the patio of our room. For value/quality - this is probably one of the best choices in PV. Only con is that there isn't a swimming pool, but you have the beach within walking distance. Overall a great stay! Thanks Paula!
Cons: - a swimming pool would be a great addition :)
7,5 Good
Pros: The air conditioning in the room is a real value as it gets super hot and humid outside. The room is big and there is a fridge! They also allow you to refill your water bottle if you need.
Cons: It’s not on the Main Street but it’s not that important, it’s super close
10,0 Excellent

Cons: - Lots of mosquito's (no nets) - Beds of dirty concrete, matras okay. - Pictures and scores are not correct
8,0 Excellent
Pros: The pool was great, gardens are lovely and room is a great size!
Cons: Beds were rock hard!
10,0 Excellent
Pros: Weather, food, hotel.
Cons: Parking
4,6 Okay
Pros: The rooms are big and spacious, there is a pool on the “deluxe rooms” side (which is better side with slightly more expensive rates). They change your towels everyday, the bathroom is clean, and bed was comfortable but a bit small for the size of the room. The location is close to town but not on the Main Street, so it doesn’t get too noisy at night (although there were some noisy neighbors that partied to 3am one night).
Cons: At the price of almost $100 USD/night (including taxes) for a total of 4 nights ($380 USD) that we paid for the supreme rooms, this is one of the more expensive hotels on our 3 week trip to Costa Rica.....but: - the room was full of mosquitoes and bugs - the 3 throw cushions (not the pillows) on the bed were extremely stinky (like they’ve never changed or cleaned the covers between guests...I actually can’t begin to describe how gross the smell was) - they don’t leave any extra rolls of toilet paper - the front desk person doesn’t speak any English on the first 2 days of January, I’m assuming their regular receptionist is on holiday. - they charge extra for breakfast - the WiFi was non-existent!!!! Literally doesn’t get any in the hotel :( I don’t know about the other rooms, but I didn’t have a good experience with mine.

Featured amenities include dry cleaning/laundry services, a 24-hour front desk, and luggage storage. Guests may use a roundtrip airport shuttle for a surcharge, and free self parking is available onsite.
5,0 Okay
Pros: The location is awesome and the garden in the area is amazing. Loved all the green plants and trees around. Loved the hammock in the balcony and the balcony itself. The breakfast was good, gallo pinto and fresh fruits - the amount was just fine. The place is not far from center in walking distance, which is great.
Cons: We traveled 6.5 hours to this place on a day of my birthday (me, my husband and our small dog) and were very tired that day, but the very first thing we've heard from a reception worker was that they normally don't accept pets (however, in the reservation site they claim to be pet friendly!). That's not exactly the best welcoming message you can get upon arrival! Also, it's not my job to start figuring out why they claim themselves to be pet friendly in the website if they are not! It's not client's job to even think about what happened and reception workers should not put that responsiblity on me. I'm not there to discuss their computer/website skills or website errors, but to enjoy my vacation. Then reception lady told that this is fine and she will make us an exception, making us feel like she is doing us a favor. But come on! There are properties that accept pets in the area, and we were choosing from 5 other hotels and chose this hotel, so why should we feel like someone is doing us a favor when it's the opposite? Clients should not be treated like that and I suggest to a hotel owner to train their receptionist better to be more professional with clients. So, I highly do not recommend this hotel to the travelers with pets. WiFi was super slow. Hot water was only on the first day and then totally disappeared the other days. Receptionist lady claimed the room is superior, but in reality it was very simple. It was fine, we liked it, but this is not superior. Also, it is overpriced, but I understand that this can be due to high season, so this is fine.
10,0 Excellent
Pros: Very helpful and kind staff. Enjoyed room upgrade! Pool, breakfast and free parking were nice. Bike rentals easy and well maintained. Would definitely go back.
7,9 Good
Pros: Nice quiet place to stay, pool was a nice to cool off in after a hot day. Very helpful staff & owner

Pros: Nice little pool for after a long beach day. Cute place for breakfast. Had beer and soda available. Great location from Puerto Viejo and other beaches.
Cons: The rooms were ok.
10,0 Excellent
Pros: The accomodation is very beautiful and near the City of Puerto Viejo. The owner is a very good host. She helps us getting a dolphintour for the next day and makes everything that we felt comfortable. The bedsize of the extra large bed was incredible.
9,2 Excellent
Pros: It was all perfect
Cons: - the bed was not very confortable -
7,9 Good
Pros: The fruit was always delicious, especially pineapple and papaya. They served additionally scrambled eggs and toast. The place is rundown; a surprise since it got good reviews on trip advisor. The last Saturday nite the whole place was booked with local people and their party lasted past 2:30 am - very very noisy. We got no sleep and the walls are paper thin. No staff past 8 pm at night. It was dreadful
Cons: The staff seemed indifferent to our concerns except for one lady, Pao (spelling?) she was very helpful.
8,8 Excellent
Pros: Breakfast is fine, swiming pool for children.

Guests may use a roundtrip airport shuttle for a surcharge, and free self parking is available onsite.
8,0 Excellent
Pros: Good breakfast, lovely little dining area. Really nice and friendly staff. The maids did a fantastic job cleaning up. It's a little beach hut so it quickly gets sand everywhere when you come back from the beach. Every morning they changed the bed sheets for fresh ones and cleaned the room really well. I was impressed. We were initially only going to stay 1 night and then we decided to extend for 2 more. The staff was really helpful and accomodating our request, and also arranged a shuttle back to San Jose for us. Great A/C and nice high ceilings.
Cons: The plumbing is old and the water pressure in our room was often nil. It's a little beach hut, so don't expect a 4 star, but I thought it was solid value for money. We were mostly at the beach anyway, so we didn't even mind the fact the showers sometimes wouldn't work.
9,0 Excellent
Pros: Love the pool, the pool bar and the staff attention
Cons: The humidity of the room, the low force of the water in the shower, that the warm jacuzzi was not working, that there isn't bikes for kids. Not having enough time to get a spa.
9,6 Excellent
Pros: The grounds are exceptionally beautiful. Well maintained while still giving the feeling of a natural jungle!
Cons: Breakfast included a huge amount of flies and other bugs flying around, despite the fan blowing on the service table... They need to figure out a better way to serve breakfast.
6,7 Good
Pros: Nice location and really great staff
Cons: The floor was always wet and hard to figure out the shower
7,0 Good
Pros: Nice hotel set in private grounds. Good rooms and very large comfy beds but did not match description on booking.com. When booked it stated it was a room with double bed + single bed. In fact it was only one bed (massive king size). This was the case for my friends who had all made separate bookings. None of us were couples but we ended up having to share bed. Nice pool and lovely staff.
Cons: Jacuzzi out of order and lack of atmosphere. Restaurant very expensive for what it was. Limited lunch menu and had ran out of hamburgers despite there only being 2 tables for lunch
5,0 Okay
Pros: The setting is in a beautiful garden The manager did his best to support my discomfort
Cons: There was no working electrical sockets in the room. Way to overpriced for its standard Terrible lighting in the rooms No mosquito nets and I got bit Lacking comfort and coziness No Water or tea included

7,9 Good
Pros: Breakfast system was good. You can just pay for the extras which is awesome.
Cons: There was a freezer but the cable would not fit the outlet. So we had to ask for an extension. Also the AC controller was under the bed. Also the bathtub was not working. My point is, when you arrive, they should tell you all that rather than waiting for the people to ask.
6,3 Good
Pros: The location is close to town and the good bakery. Most of the staff was very friendly.
Cons: The room I had (Mikado Room) was very noisy because it was next to the street. There was a balcony, but it was enclosed with netting which didn't allow much air through, so it was hot. I think the netting was there to keep out the bats which roost in the roof. If you are there for any length of time there is no place to hang clothes. There is a chest of drawers, but that is not useful if you want to dry things. If you are looking at the photos online and think you can have a nice swim from one end of the pool to the other under the little bridge, think again. The pool is three little basins. However, the garden is nice.
7,0 Good
Pros: The bedroom in the loft. Air conditioner worked.
Cons: The toilet would not flush. The wi-fi did not work in the room - it did work in the restaurant.
6,0 Good
Pros: Had the Samurai Suite. Nice and spacious for my mom and I. Great ambiance.
Cons: Toilet wasn’t working. I know not to throw away toilet paper in the toilet, but the water pressure wasn’t strong enough to flush the contents down. Had to plunge the water down, but it was still hassle and just nasty. Was too late to contact the front desk bc it was after 8pm. There were also dead cockroaches. For the amount we paid for the suite, would’ve imagined the facilities were much more clean.
4,0 Okay
Pros: Good location, friendly staff, concept of the garden is lovely, 2 slots living on their trees. Big and comfortable bed.
Cons: First day took 40 minutes to serve the breakfast (second day it was quick,no issues). Rooms are very dark,poor lighting, walls are smelly and dirty. There is a club close to the accommodation and they have live music (a dj) until 2-2:30am in the morning and because the doors and windows are not sound proof at all I couldn't sleep. And the housekeeper threw my pijamas onto the lamp shade while she/he did the bedding and she/he left it there.
4,0 Okay
Pros: Location is ok.
Cons: The parking lot is across the street with no security or even lights. Our room didn't have a closet, TV, fridge. They said they would clean between 10 and 2 but never did in the two nights we stayed. Never changed the towels until we asked. House rules ask guests to be quiet after midnight, but the bar played loud and ugly music until about 2 am both nights. Included breakfast was unpeeled fruit (pineapple with skin, mango with skin); when we asked for sugar for coffee the response was "it's on that table" instead of bringing it to our table.

Cons: The driveway letting to caribe town was filled with garbage and dog feces. Not caribe towns fault but still took away from the experience. Overall the city is garbage ritten so just accept it and it won’t bother you! Pura Vita

9,6 Excellent
Pros: Super convenient location, 5 min walk from the center yet remote enough to be completely quiet. The building and amenities are basically new, and everything was tastefully arranged. Bed was very large and comfortable, allowing us to get good rest after a string of hotels with squeaky beds. The owners live on property and pay attention to how it’s run.
Cons: I only wish breakfast had been included and it’d be nice for the property to offer some extra services like bike rental, laundry etc. You can get all this in town but the convenience of getting it from your hotel would be welcome at this price range.

Pros: Paula at reception is great and was always available to answer our questions and she even helped us make some coffee since there isn't any coffee/tea in the rooms, only a fridge. Great location, everything is within walking distance and it's just at the backside of town which means it isn't loud at night. Beds were comfortable, hot shower, and we loved the rocking chairs on the patio of our room. For value/quality - this is probably one of the best choices in PV. Only con is that there isn't a swimming pool, but you have the beach within walking distance. Overall a great stay! Thanks Paula!
Cons: - a swimming pool would be a great addition :)
7,5 Good
Pros: The air conditioning in the room is a real value as it gets super hot and humid outside. The room is big and there is a fridge! They also allow you to refill your water bottle if you need.
Cons: It’s not on the Main Street but it’s not that important, it’s super close

Pros: Weather, food, hotel.
Cons: Parking
4,6 Okay
Pros: The rooms are big and spacious, there is a pool on the “deluxe rooms” side (which is better side with slightly more expensive rates). They change your towels everyday, the bathroom is clean, and bed was comfortable but a bit small for the size of the room. The location is close to town but not on the Main Street, so it doesn’t get too noisy at night (although there were some noisy neighbors that partied to 3am one night).
Cons: At the price of almost $100 USD/night (including taxes) for a total of 4 nights ($380 USD) that we paid for the supreme rooms, this is one of the more expensive hotels on our 3 week trip to Costa Rica.....but: - the room was full of mosquitoes and bugs - the 3 throw cushions (not the pillows) on the bed were extremely stinky (like they’ve never changed or cleaned the covers between guests...I actually can’t begin to describe how gross the smell was) - they don’t leave any extra rolls of toilet paper - the front desk person doesn’t speak any English on the first 2 days of January, I’m assuming their regular receptionist is on holiday. - they charge extra for breakfast - the WiFi was non-existent!!!! Literally doesn’t get any in the hotel :( I don’t know about the other rooms, but I didn’t have a good experience with mine.

4,0 Okay
Pros: A nice Caribbean area, but the other coast is much more diverse.
Cons: As for the hotel. Sorry for the bad rating but we did not like the stay. There was a terrible stink in the room and on the terrace. I think you could find better and cheaper accommodation in the area. I do not recommend for a longer stay.

Pros: Andrea, who took care of us, is amazing!!! It is a great place for relaxing, close to both beach and forest! Waking up in the morning to watch amazing forest right on your balcony and hearing the birds monkeys etc was a wonderful way to wake up every morning. The Hotell is very good located and the room tidy and pretty. The staff was very helpful and friendly and we definetly recommend this place

Pros: This property was an excellent location backing right up to the jungle. We enjoyed relaxing on our spacious patio and enjoying the sights and sounds of the rainforest. We woke every morning to the sounds of tropical birds and howler monkeys in the trees surrounding the hotel. All accommodations were exceptionally clean and comfortable. The pool was awesome in the jungle setting as well. Andrea was an excellent host and he made some of the best cocktails of our trip (especially his caipirinhas) and his recommendations for dinner were superb. We definitely look forward to staying at Bugabutik again! With much appreciation, Brittany and Mike

10,0 Excellent
Pros: Hotel Bugabutik is amazing. Owner Andrea is so kind and helpful. The resort is very beautiful and clean. Room was big and nice. The view out of the room was amazing. All you could see was wilderness. We even saw some animals out of our balcony. Hearing all these noises of the jungle is so peaceful. The area around the pool makes you feel like you're in the middle of the jungle. There is a bar with a tasty breakfast and through the day you can drink coffee, tea or cacao. There is also a pooltable. We really enjoyed staying there. Bugabutik won't let you down if you're looking for calm and peaceful place with a soul. 200m away is a beautiful sandy beach Cocles where you can surf, swim or just enjoy a stunning view. Puerto Viejo is 2 minutes drive away. We really love Bugabutik hotel.

6,3 Good
Pros: The outdoor environment was very nice and natural. Swimming pool and Jacuzzi was in outdoor environment and was very nice. They had some activities like cocktail workshop and yoga which was nice and unique.
Cons: The main problem was the amount of money I had been charged was double of what hotel printed in my receipt! I asked for reason and they said there is an agency who charged you! The room was not very clean, the bed cover had some stain on it. The bathroom was very slippery and I fell down once and got lots of pain and still not sure if my elbow is fine. The room was all in white with white light which is a bit gloomy in the rain forest.
9,6 Excellent
Pros: Professional staff, always providing the best service they can. The reception were perfect as were the waiting and bar staff in the beach club. Exclusive feel, great value for money for the rooms, breakfast and lunch too. The evening meals were not great however use trip adviser for recommendations nearby as this worked for us! The beach is gorgeous one of the best in the area and so quiet
Cons: The evening meals in Neo
4,0 Okay
Pros: Pool and jacuzzi are nice! Also the location of the hotel is very good.
Cons: The rooms as the queensize bed is was too small for 2 people and because the ground is white, everything gets dirty very quickly and becomes disgusting. Also the bed and everything was a little wet all the time. The breakfast is also not satisfying, there is not even fresh orange juice but from concentrate.

7,9 Good
Pros: Very stylish design. We love the way the room is recoloured every day, even the paintings change! Spacious room. The staff are very warm and polite. Two very nice pools and a hot jacuzzi (Shame about the chairs - see below)
Cons: There is not one comfortable chair anywhere in the property. A real triumph of design over practicality. The fact that everything is white means it is starting to show its age. It is very expensive really for the quality but welcome to Costa Rica. Service in the bar restaurant is a little slow but not so one needed to complain.
5,0 Okay
Cons: Very expensive for what you get. This is not a 5 star hotel. The restaurant is completely overpriced with very slow service. Paid for a junior suite and was given a deluxe room without compensation. Rooms smell of mildew/mold. Ground floor rooms are surrounded by a swamp
