The hotel is okay, rooms were clean, housekeeping staff was very responsive and the pool area was expansive. The hotel/restaurant has a beautiful beach view, but be forewarned there is no beach access and it's not that close to Playa Bonita (despite what the lonely planet may lead you to believe). Unfortunately, I was not overly impressed with the hotel...

If it looks like a chicken and clucks like a chicken, it's probably a chicken. I can't say I stayed here. I can say that just as I was about to check it, we asked to see the room. Upon opening the door, the bed had mismatched sheets, the TV was huge (and not in a 42" flat-screen kinda way)...

The Maribu Caribe Hotel is situated high on a hill overlooking the Caribbean sea, a few kilometers north of Puerto Limon. Once past the rather handsome reception area, you get a full view of the well manicured grounds which are extensive and quite impressive, as are the swimming pool, the pool-side bar, the restaurant and the the thatched-roofed bedroom units...

We stayed at this hotel while on a trip to Puerto Viejo. We had to stop due to the terrible weather and were directed there by a friendly cab driver. The hotel actually looks quite nice from the outside with some very pretty palm roofs and white round buildings. The restaurant has a nice view to the ocean and the...

This is a decent place to stay. The rooms are ok, beds a little hard and you get a little tube television. Personally the TV didn't matter to me because I was out at the pool or beach most of the time. The beach is about a 5 minute taxi ride. The breakfast is complimentary but it mostly just consist...

Hotel is in the mid-priced range. Booked it through www.vacationcity.com. The property is one of very few hotels in the area. Limon and surroundings has been neglected by the Costa Rica Government and this is reflected in the attitude of the people...rather different from the rest of Costa Rica. Not friendly in general. The rooms are very basic (VERY). The...

I have stay at tis hoel on several occasions. I found the rooms fairly small but clean. The food was very good! I love the pool. You have to try the Thursday night buffet.

It was a real desillusion as we have been told that this hotel was one of the best in Puerto Limon. Rooms are really small and are getting really old, confort is basic, and beach is not accessible. Breakfast is included but terrible.The only good point is the beautiful view from the restaurant. We paid around 80 dollars for one...

We recently spent two days in the Maribu Caribe and enjoyed our stay. The grounds and the view were beautiful, the room very adequate. The food was plentiful and not great but satisfactory. We received excellent service from all the staff. We went on a half a day guided river/canal tour towards Tortuguero and this was wonderful, I would highly...
