This place is awesome. The boss is very very friendly and kind, he will make you feel welcome in the first place. The cabinas are very clean and tidy. Every bed has an own mosquito net. The location is also perfect.

My girlfriend and I recently stayed one night at Cabinas Guarana, and that was plenty. The hotel does offer a great atmosphere with Cabinas surrounded by lush plants and little front porches with hammocks and rocking chairs. Inside the rooms, however, quality is not as evident. The bottoms of my feet were soon black from walking on the dirty floor, and there were lots of Mosquitos inside the room. Also, the bed sheets felt very musty and the pillows were pretty flat. Add in some typical Caribbean humidity and it made for a pretty poor night's sleep (though the ceiling fan was a big plus). Give me clean sheets and kill some bugs between guests and I'd consider staying in the future.

Short walk to the main street and beach area, but far away to provide safety and a quiet nights.
Tons of restaurants within walking distance.
ATMs nearby. Pharmacy and Grocery store close by as well.

Front staff was extremely helpful and they also offer laundry service for ~$3/kg.

The bedsheets could use some upgrade.
Ventilation is decent. It can get a big muggy during the day.

Jaguar Rescue Center is a must visit and you can walk/bike/taxi to the rescue center
We enjoyed our stay. Would stay here next time we are in town!

We had an excellent stay in Cabinas Guarana. It also serves to tell that I visited Puerto Viejo with a friend from San Jose whose first choice is always to stay at Guarana: He's been visiting Puerto Viejo for over 20 years. They fulfilled our last minute booking request with ease, our room was spacious, clean and quiet, but my favorite part is that each room has a private hammock on the patio. I love the peaceful ambiance of napping in a hammock surrounded by a beautiful garden! Free wifi and access to a computer, a communal kitchen and located just right off the main street across the street from an excellent and funky shop with gifts for everyone on your list. I tried to book Guarana on a return trip but unfortunately they were full. Next time, I'll try to plan ahead!

We stayed in a great cabina with a comfortable bed and our own hammock at the front, with decent ventilation. They have a kitchen for guest use, which we made use of. In addition they have lovely, helpful staff and are in a great location. Hotel Guarana is good value for money and we'd definitely stay again!
