This hotel was perfect for me. The staff were fantastic, very helpful. They are obviously part of the community and can put you in touch with the local scoop as well as the tourist oriented packages. Very laid back and easy going. Room was comfortable and kept clean. Easy and safe access to town 24-7. It's in town but not on the main drag. Quiet time after 9:00 PM and no TV so if you're looking to party in your room until the wee hours this may not be your place. I really enjoyed being in town and not boxed into a more isolated self contained hotel. It makes you interact with locals and fellow travelers in the "lobby" and shared kitchen. Small town atmosphere type of hotel.

Four of my friends and I stayed at Cabinas Guarana last week during a visit to Costa Rica. The rooms were clean and well maintained and the staff was friendly. The prices are also very reasonable.

No air conditioning but that's to be expected at this price. I'd stay here again in a minute and really felt comfortable there.

had a great time. staff was wonderful, always helpful and friendly to meet all our needs.
pretty setting; gardens in courtyard of all the rooms like a rain forest.
location was good; just on the edge of town for privacy but walking distance to everything.
great prices and clean and good service. high recommend.

My 10 year old son and I spent 3 nights at Cabinas Guarana and we LOVED it. So peaceful, safe and the staff is friendly and helpful. The rooms are clean, no TV or phone but we all need some time to relax and go back to basic. They do have wifi in the reception area and a computer available for all that need to.
Each room has a private terrace with a woven hammock. We certainly recommend Cabinas Guarana to others that are thinking of visiting Puerto Viejo.

It's a great value since the prices are low and the stay is usually comfortable. It is right in Puerto Viejo town, so you can walk everywhere (restaurants, convenience stores, pharmacy, bank, etc) or rent bikes to ride to the nicer beaches like Playa Chiquita and Punta Uva.

The rooms are basic, comfortable and clean. The beds are comfortable as well...no itchy or humid sheets. The bathroom was always well cleaned when I stayed there.

It has a nice common area where you can sit and have friendly conversation.

The gardens are not too pretty.

I have heard people having bad experiences with lost reservations.
