10.0 Excellent
Pros: The breakfast was delicious, starting with coffee and plenty of fresh, local fruit. The location was good, being near restaurants and a short drive to the beach. We did see people walk to the beach as well.
10.0 Excellent
Pros: I drove there and the property was clearly signposted from the main road with enough room to park. We were in the garden room, across the road from the pool. The room was very comfortable and private, with an outdoor table and hammock. The breakfast was more than enough; the homemade jams were fantastic! The owners were always around to help with any questions that we had. All in all I wish we had had much longer there!!
8.3 Excellent
Pros: very friendly stuff, well caring family. Price was competitive (but you need a car as location is little outside)
Cons: The room was super small, it had no ‘buenavista’ at all and the bed was not really comfortable. There seems to be different quality in rooms. Make sure you get into the modern part

10.0 Excellent
Pros: Amazing cabinas high on the hill. Remote. Amazing views. Super comphy bed, great shower (this was our first hot shower in a week) WiFi worked great. AC worked great. Winds howeled at night
Cons: Having to leave
10.0 Excellent
Pros: The hotel owners literally went the extra mile to give us a unique experience. Because we had a small issue with our car, they personally brought us up the hill with their quad to enjoy an A-mazing sunset. The food was delicious and served in a very professional and caring way. Rooms were clean and comfortable. Also for the checkout they were very flexible, allowing us to stay longer during our last day to enjoy the pool and have access to shower before going to the airport. The view up there is simply amazing - feeling peaceful up in the hills yet close enough to be down in 10 minutes by 4x4 car to enjoy the beach and other activities.
Cons: N/A
10.0 Excellent
Pros: Friendly staff, really nice swimming pool with a great view. Clean rooms and big lodges.
Cons: Everything was great!
10.0 Excellent
Pros: The property was immaculately clean: pool and rooms were cleaned daily, landscaping was pristine. The staff was very welcoming. It was obvious that Laura and Cedric took care of their staff and that they enjoyed working there. Laura was our host for all but one night and she went out of her way to accommodate our needs. On one particular evening when we had planned to go out for dinner, our children showed signs of needing an early bedtime. We asked Laura if the restaurant would be open. She profusely apologized, explaining that during the low season she only called in her cook when guests had let her know ahead of time (completely our fault as we had intended on going out). Despite this, she helped us out by cooking pasta and sauce for us and our kids. We told her she didn’t need to and we’d figure something out but she insisted. That was the level of service we received at Peace and Lodge. In addition a to the service, the location was stunning. You really get a true sense of peace as Peace and Lodge is perched high up in the mountains overlooking the Pacific. It was serenely quiet; the only sound above a whisper was the troops of howler monkeys. Given that we brought our kids (ages 2 and 5) I will offer this: do not bring your children here if your kids can’t get through a meal without using an IPad, have poor volume control, don’t appreciate the natural world and/or are subscribed to a paradigm of instant gratification. My partner and I had prepped our children for this experience. In our down time they enjoyed reading books in the hammocks, playing cards, documenting the wildlife, journaling, swimming and napping. Playa Carrillo is a short drive down the mountain and is a great family beach. Since you’ll need a 4x4/4wd to get to Peace and Lodge, it would be worth exploring other, off the beaten path beaches. We particular loved Playa Corozalitto for its remoteness and abundance of Scarlet Macaws. Overall, Peace and Lodge exceeded our expectations.
Cons: Nothing, it exceeded our expectations.
10.0 Excellent
Pros: The staff were amazing and super friendly. They were very attentive and made our week at their lodge such a lovely one. The facilities and location are great, super quiet and peaceful with a stunning view. Breakfast each morning was a real treat!!
7.5 Good
Pros: Amazing view
Cons: Some of the staff weren’t so friendly (although others were great). Menu for vegetarians/pescatarian very limited eg had to have same starter and pretty much same main course the 2 nights we were there.
10.0 Excellent
Pros: This is one of the best vacation hotels I have stayed in, a true gem in Costa Rica. Spacious, comfortable, quiet, with stunning views, the perfect place to relax and replenish. Laura and Cédric are wonderfully welcoming and generous hosts, always there when you need something, look for local info or simply want to chat, yet discreet and unintrusive. Our family bungalow was roomy and super clean, the beds were comfortable and the balcony was the perfect reading spot for me. Both rooms had a/c but the ceiling fans were sufficient to cool them down comfortably at night. Our boys loved exploring the property and quickly became buddies with the friendly household dogs and cat and of course with Jamón the pet pig. Breakfast with generous plates of delicious fresh fruit starts your day off with a flavour and vitamine boost, and supper in the intimate Coco Rico restaurant overlooking the jungle concludes your day with the flavourful and inventive menu from Chef Adrien's cuisine - try the garlic mushrooms with pico de gallo starter and the flambeed watermelon dessert! Playa Carrillo just 5 minutes down the back country road (with the howler monkeys loudly commenting our drive-by) is a beautiful light coloured sand bay with waves just big enough for the kids to have fun in. Most of the times we had it virtually for ourselves, sharing only with a handful of locals and the beautiful red ara pair feeding on the beach almonds. We spent a wonderful vacation at the Peace & Lodge and can't wait to be back!
10.0 Excellent
Pros: The place is a total gem. We had a cabin on the edge of the property with terrific views. Cedric the owner is a warm, friendly, hardworking host. Cedric is always at the open air restaurant eager to help in any way and always with a big smile. The property is very peaceful, quiet, and manicured (without being too overdone). The small restaurant/bar overlooks the fine pool. All the cabins are private and overlook the ocean. There is a bocci court. Andre arrives on scene in the evening and is an excellent French chef.. The menu had three main meals offered each night. Why go to town? Prices for the meals were quite reasonable, especially considering the quantity and flavor, not to mention the friendly service by Cedric and Andre. Wow. Double Wow.
Cons: We loved it all.
9.5 Excellent
Pros: Beautiful views, great little casita, nice rancho for breakfast and dinner, beautiful garden with pool. I will stay again and definitely recommend this place to friends. Normally I am a restless person who wants to go out and explore, but here I did not want to leave. It is such a nice comfortable place that just feels right. No need to leave, just sit in front of your casita or at the pool and enjoy the views or read a good book. They also offer a very nice dinner (which is good because it is quite a drive up the mountain so you do not want to go out to Samara for dinner).
La Posada Bed & Breakfast - Puerto Carrillo - Bedroom
3
9.1 Excellent (87 reviews)
Overview Reviews
When you stay at La Posada Bed & Breakfast in Puerto Carrillo, you'll be by the ocean, a 1-minute drive from Carrillo Beach and 5 minutes from Samara Beach. The front desk is staffed during limited hours. Free self parking is available onsite.
9.3 Excellent
Pros: The hosts are incredibly kind and helpful. The views from the ocean view room are breathtaking. Air conditioning is available and works well. Fresh breakfast in gorgeous outdoor dining area. Close walking distance to fantastic dining options and short drive or walk, (for people that are physically fit enough to climb steep hills) to beach and neighbouring restaurants and local convenience store. There is a refrigerator and coffee maker available for guests to share and use - this was great to have as we were able to make coffee early in the morning and store some milk and juice, fruits, etc.
Cons: The only thing lacking was a pool on the property to be able to cool off in. However, the air conditioning works well and the beach is located within about an 8 minute drive, or 15 minute walk for those physically able to walk the steep hills.
8.8 Excellent
Pros: Friendly and helpful owners, close to the beach, great porch with views. OK breakfast.
9.3 Excellent
Pros: Wonderful location, next to one of the best beaches I’ve ever seen. The staff were so friendly and made sure we had a great time. The breakfast is very good. The best part of the hotel is the overlook of Carillo beach where you can eat or chill all day.
Cons: Insects in the room and could be a little cleaner, but overall not bad.
7.0 Good
Pros: La posada is a small bed and breakfast with very nice owners. They are very helpful. The house is nicely arrangend at a hill with a beatiful overlook to the sea from the patio (which can be used by all guests). The breakfast is good, it is served at the patio and you can choose between typical (Gallo Pinto) or american (pancakes) breakfast. It is only a 5 min walk to the beatiful beach. In summary, Puerto Carillo is much nicer than Samara as there are only a few tourists in Carillo.
Cons: The price was rather high for Costa Rica (74 USD per night). The room was very basic, only a bed and a rack. The bath room is very small and old. The shower sink was damaged, the washbasin was rusty and there was always an unpleasant smell in the bath. We did not like the bath room at all. As usual there was no window glass in the bath room, only a mosquito net which had several holes in it.
10.0 Excellent
Pros: We loved the place! Teo and his wife are the best host ever! We particularly enjoy the breakfast with a view (and colibrìs flying around!) amazingly cooked by lovely Maria. Can't wait to go back!
10.0 Excellent
Pros: Heaven on earth! Miss the place and the hosts! One of the best places I‘ve stayed in my life!
8.8 Excellent
Pros: The nicest hosts we had during our trip! We lived the place and the view from the terasse!
8.8 Excellent
Pros: Super friendly B&B, from the warm welcome to the owners BBQ to which we were invited. Nice peaceful location, with several reasonable restaurants within walking distance and Carillo Bay at the bottom of the road. If you book here you have to be aware that the accommodation is fairly basic, but the atmosphere and the fantastic view from the terrace as you have your breakfast certainly make up for any lack of luxury.
9.3 Excellent
Pros: Felt so welcome and at home thanks to the lovely owners!
10.0 Excellent
Pros: location, tranquility, proximity to beach and amability of our hosts.

The beach is one of the most beautiful and undeveloped beaches in Costa Rica. Loved it!
8.3 Excellent
Pros: Facilities were great and vibe was awesome
Cons: The room we stayed in next to the private house shouldn’t be a room or at least inform customers you might have to deal with the private house. Where are the duvets?????? Curtains in room were hideous or belonged to 1990
10.0 Excellent
Pros: Lovely hotel, really clean and comfortable and very helpful staff. We really like the tours on offer, too. We loved swimming in the evenings and the lovely gardens. The beach shuttle is also really convenient.
Cons: It's a pity the new menu had nothing vegetarian, but I was allowed to order from the old menu, so it worked out fine.
9.5 Excellent
Pros: The grounds and pools are absolutely beautiful. All the staff were excellent, front desk and waitstaff were especially kind and helpful. Our best hotel experience/stay ANYWHERE to date.
Cons: No complaints really, my particular room was cozy but not as new looking as the common areas and maybe some bigger rooms, but not a big deal as the overall quality was so high.

7.5 Good
Pros: The pool
Cons: The toilet has no door at all !
7.0 Good
Pros: Fabulous location and rooms.
Cons: Unfortunately, I have received my nice room only when I was threatening I plan to go. This is low season in Costa Rica. Hotel had only 10 rooms occupied. 80% of rooms have ocean view. And, in these conditions, the initial room given to me was with poor view and facilities. I have tried to get a nice room by communicating directly with hotel, 3 days before my stay. My interest and requests have been ignored. Very poor customer service! And a customer that was planning to bring family for longer stay will not return.
6.3 Good
Pros: The pool was great, especially the view. As was the restaurant location.
Cons: set on hillside and very steep areas around the property. Was ok for me but cant imagine someone with difficulty walking.
7.5 Good
Pros: Large rooms, friendly and professional service, good a/c and spectacular views from pool and restraurant
Cons: The most of the rooms do not have a view to the beach and it is technically not beach front but is a short walk down some stairs and across the street to get to Carrillo beach.
9.3 Excellent
Pros: Location and staff
Cons: It dorsn’t have beach chairs or club at the beach
7.5 Good
Pros: The view, the pool, the beach front and the size of the room and bathroom were unrealistically big, we did an early check-in and waited on the pool until our room was ready. Pool staff were really polite and friendly.
Cons: Big ants in the room walking around the floors of the room/bathroom. The Wifi wasn't working which was a huge disappointment. The entrance to the hotel is really scary that I have to make a turn and cross a highway on a curvy part where you can't see if there is a car coming. Staff didn't really try to tell us about activities or things to do in the area. It was only families there that we saw, so maybe not the best for solo, couples or groups.
8.8 Excellent
Pros: Nice accommodation near the beach. Beautiful rooms with large balcony looking (partly) on the sea. Friendly staff.

Pros: We really enjoyed staying at Puerto Carillo Sunset! Adorable beautiful view! Outstanding sunset! Good coffee. Ignacio and Nanni were very kind and caring to us and our two daughters. They both made us feel at home. Ignacio was even very helpful to us before leaving Sweden when we had problems with booking a rental car. He did everything to try to help us. We stayed two nights, but would have liked to stay more. The situation is a little off, so we would recommend bringing your own car. It is definitely a little paradise. One of the best places we stayed in during our stay in Costa Rica. We can warmly recommend this and would happily return one day! / Ingrid and Johan
