Welcome to Totem Hotel, An Exotic Beach Front Resort with quality hotel accommodation at affordable prices. The Resort is the right place for those who love pure Nature, in search of unspoiled beaches and away from the big all inclusive hotels.

Totem Hotel is located in Cocles Beach Front, just 1,5km from Puerto Viejo of Talamanca, a small village known for its mixture of indios Br Br and Caribbean black culture, sheltered by GandocaManzanillo natural reserve on the brink of the Panamanian border.

All the wonders of Primordial Tropical Paradise can be found here: palm trees swinging on tranquil beaches, the tones of purple, orange and red merging into the sea at sunset, accompanied by a soundtrack of reggae, calypso music and exotic birdsong.

Totem Beach Resort is a family style hotel has 20 rooms distributed as follows: 6 Suite: 3 on ground floor with direct access to the swimming pool and 3 on first floor with balcony and sea view. 2 Jr. Suite: especially for people with wheelchairs. 12 Standard: from which you can choose from A/C or ceiling fan, with tropical garden views.

It is involved in various environmental projects since 2004, including reserves of rainwater, use of roof, deck (outdoor), trash cans and chairs, recycled plastic replacing wood. This prevents the indiscriminate cutting of trees, reduces demand for virgin raw materials and reduces pollution. Moreover, they have installed an innovative plant for wastewater treatment, obtaining clean water by 97% to be carried into rivers. Their rooms have been tastefully decorated to the most sencibles tastes. The sound of the sea, the birds singing, the awakening of the howler monkeys and the leaves swaying of the trees with the rythm of the wind, will guide you to an unforgettable experience.

Mediterraneo Restaurante and Peace & Love Cafeteria has a spectacular view of the beach is open for breakfast, lunch and dinner. Everything is homemade, including bread, pasta, Piadina Romagnola (flat bread typical of the region of Emilia Romagna), and desserts.

Here you will find a friendly atmosphere where tropical elements combined all together create a friendly atmosphere. Choose from their menu variety of salads and different types of pasta like spaghetti, noodles, ravioli, tagliatelle seasoned with fresh seafood from their Caribbean Sea. Managed by Chef Nico Bareti and chef Andrea Biancardi, high quality dishes carry your palate away from these lands. Enjoy dinner, food and drink at home or elsewhere, is one of many Italian passions. It often seems that the Italians live, first at all, to eat and enjoy good food. The cuisine is rich, with much diversity, each region has its own dishes.

Over-priced, Under-serviced

If you want to be almost on the beach, this might work for you. If you're looking for a pool + beach, look elsewhere. Pool was disappointing, hidden on the property with little sun. Restaurant was average at best. Breakfast was almost cold or stale every morning as they put it out at 6am. Staff was friendly and the hotel grounds were lush with vegetation, but there were no real value added services. We wouldn't stay here again, even considering the 1 free night stay promotion we booked. There are many many more hotels in Puerto Viejo, unfortunately most are overpriced as well.
