The Latin America Travel Company Rating: ★ ★ ★
Covering a total of 5 acres with several nature trails and beautifully kept tropical gardens, Cariblue is a mid range resort located just a few steps from the popular surfer beach of Cocles, just outside the town of Puerto Viejo. Rooms are spread out around the property, some located in the gardens and others facing the ocean. Rooms are quite spacious and all come with air conditioning, ceiling fans, wifi, a safe, a hair dryer, phone and bathroom toiletries.
Surrounded by rainforest and with direct access to Cocles beach, Cariblue is a slightly rustic but good standard beach and jungle resort
The decoration is rustic and in keeping with the local area with tropical wood furniture, stone bathrooms, hammocks and tiled floors. The Soleluna restaurant is housed in a large palm roofed building located in the heart of the resort. Local Caribbean style cuisine is served along with excellent cocktails at the American bar. The Totem Beach Bar provides more informal dining in an open air setting. There are lots of other facilities such as the excellent Aqua spa, two swimming pools and jacuzzis, a surf school, bikes to rent and a local crafts shop. Cariblue is also a great hotel for families.
