We stayed two nights prior in a "jungle cabin" and we were so looking forward to air conditioning. The service upon arrival was great, they offered a cool drink and wet towel. Great touch. The front desk was huge help at our every question and request. The large pool was great and very refreshing. Bar service was perfect at the...

We stayed 3 nights. Rooms were nice, but part of complex was under construction. Hotel has maintained heavy forestation so there are active Howler monkeys in trees, birds including Toucans, sloths etc. pool was nice. Restaurant just ok. No beach towels available and beach across street is just ok.

The rooms are spread out among huge beautiful trees so that you feel immersed within a beautiful jungle. Pool area is great to just admire the beautiful lush area or take a drink by their in-pool bar. You can walk out of the property right onto Cocles beach, were we witnessed one of the most amazing sunrises ever. Service was...

We have just returned from 5 nights at this hotel. The gardens and the thatched bungalows were charming and packed with wildlife - the regular visits from the deafening howler monkeys are amazing (they stay up in the trees but they do wake you up at night! One lady thought they were a recording!) Also saw a sloth on the...

This was the first place I stayed when I got to Costa Rica and I frequently asked the hotel staff questions and to call taxis for me. They were always helpful and friendly. The rooms were spacious and clean. It is also very well secured and safe, as it is just outside of the city center. A cab ride costs...

I had been volunteering at the Jaguar Rescue Center for a month and was happy to meet friends afterwards and to relax. The drinks at the pool bar were more than generous or maybe I was just tired. Anyway, I ended up being tipsy after 2 drinks.

Stayed at the Cariblue in a Beach Front Apartment with my wife and daughter that just turned 11. Had a view of the surf from our room which was a nice second floor unit with an outdoor deck (and a hammock that got much use). Inside was nice and clean (with daily maid service) with two large bedrooms and a...

We just got back from 4 nights at that place. Upon arriving until we left, the service was excellent at any moment of the day. We also met the owner who spends time on site to make sure that everything runs smoothly. Our number one star goes to the tall, handsome, always smiling ( who wears glasses !) person who...

Cari blue at present is actually the merger of two hotels, the original (up market) Cari blue set back from the road and the (lower end) " totem" at the roadside. Consequently it has two of everything (pools restaurants), the totem end seems to have been a surf hotel, but the surf shop etc are closed, the "games room" deserted...
