Recent guest reviews

The resort was so amazing, very cozy and secluded for a very relaxing stay. They accommodated to all of our transportation needs from airport to just getting around. The included breakfast was delicious and different every morning. Nothing but good this time say about my time here. Would definitely recommend to any fellow traveler.

Amazing staff

They went above and beyond. I spent 6 nights at the hotel and had many questions about tours, where to eat (Try a local spot Soda Garabito - Awesome local spot - Hidden Gem) where to get a Covid Test before flying out to the US (They called a traveling nurse to administrate one). All of the staff was very friendly, helpful and were always ready to share a smile. Thank you for everything!

Clean, great service and the installations are awesome

Beautiful setting, away but still close to Jaco for business. Great staff. Only breakfasts available, so you need to go someplace else to eat. They do provide room service from local restaurants but foods gets cold.

Loved the way the staff welcomed and treated us. The place was great, it was clean and the beds were comfortable

We had a wonderful stay at the Pumilio Mountain & Ocean Hotel. We had a very warm welcome by the hosts and a very nice glass of wine upon our arrival. Once you enter the gate you are in your own little paradise. Quiet and quaint, this is the perfect place for just relaxing. We had a lovely unit on the second floor and just loved the outdoor kitchen. All ten rooms face the pool and the jungle. It is very relaxing to sit outside on the balcony or sit by the pool. Breakfast was very nice. There were lots of different options to choose from. Dining outside was just a great way to start your day. The location is excellent. It is really very close to many of the places you will want to visit in this part of Costa Rica. We went just up the road to Neofauna, also travelled to Manuel Antonio National Park, Jaco Beach, PuraVida Gardens up in the mountains, Puntarenas and Carrara National Park. You absolutely can't miss the amazing sunset from Villa Caletas. I think that is the most beautiful sunset we have ever seen. We also visited several beaches along the coast and watched the surfers at Playa Hermosa. It was an amazing trip to Costa Rica and we started it by staying at just a wonderful little piece of paradise. If I could make just one suggestion it would be to put toppers on the beds. The units are beautiful, clean and so spacious but the beds were just a little too hard. That would make our next stay just perfect. Thank you for your hospitality. Pura Vida!

Quiet place in a beautiful setting, away from all the busy town. Great breakfast, but no other meals. However, can order from a variety of restaurants that deliver.

Our overall stay was great! Very nice and clean hotel. Great location. The staff were wonderful, very nice.

It’s about a 7 minute drive to from Jaco, however well worth it if you want to be secluded up in a hill. Overall great experience and highly recommend for couples.

Wonderful small boutique hotel with personalized service. Away from the bustle of Jaco. Great full breakfast, but no other meal served. However they you can order from local restaurants who will deliver. Hotel will take care of everything

Loved our stay at Pumilio. Employees were all very nice. The hotel is beautiful and relaxing and it feels more like a weekend house than a hotel. Highly recommended!

Stayed only one night but we will be back. The hotel is very nice with an excellent amount of detail such as separate pool towels, a complementary drink upon arrival, outside wet bar and seating area for each room, etc.

great stuff and great location. Feels like in the middle of rainforest with all the lush landscaping and birds and lizards

Great place, & staff. Family really enjoyed the pool and small water slide. Secluded, away from the busy beach area, but close enough you can ride a bike (or take an uber). Would definitely go back.

We found this hotel on Trip advisor and was surprised at the number of reviews for a 17 room hotel. There is a reason why so many are 5 star. The breakfasts that are included are excellent with a varied selection depending on the day. The fresh fruit was magnificent. The staff was always helpful and had a smile. The rooms were cute and roomy with a modern rustic mix which we liked. The exotic birds start to sing softly as you get up in the morning and the surrounding jungle makes it a wonderful place to relax. There is no way to explain how the ambiance makes you feel. We stayed for 3 nights, and left for a few hours to go to Jaco for one hour. (its about 10-15 mins away as is the beach) They have an onsite masseuse and the little hut in the jungle they use for it is very cute as well. In the evening they light the tiki torches around the pool and use an oil that keeps the mosquitos away. They have a menu that you can use for lunch or dinner from restaurants in town. When the "takeout" arrives, they prepare in on plates and serve at no extra charge. Next time we come to Costa Rica, IF we can get a room here we will stay here the entire time. I almost hesitated to give this review as I really don't want it to get to busy. :) if this was helpful, please let me know.

My girlfriend and I had a great time at pumilio hotel. The room was big, clean, and comfortable. We also had a 55in tv which was nice. The pool was beautiful and the breakfast was awesome. No restaurant on site but the hotel offers delivery from many different restaurants to choose from. The staff was very helpful to all our needs, I would highly recommend this hotel.

The only problem is that the beach is too far away

Breakfast was ok! You can't walk to the beach! Too far! You need to have a car!

Hotel Pumilio helped to make our first trip to Costa Rica perfect! Laura (the owner) and Adrien (front desk) go above & beyond to help make their guests' stay in this quaint boutique hotel a memorable one. From the personal greeting and glasses of wine awaiting us upon arrival, to the fabulous breakfast each morning, lovely pool & spa areas, and extra efforts made to book day trips for us, we felt pampered and cared for every step of the way! Although downstairs suites open to the pool, we enjoyed the privacy of the 2nd floor and took advantage of the full outdoor kitchen that is on each suite's patio. Each suite (there are only 10 total; 5 up & 5 down) sleeps five comfortably. If you want a relaxing getaway, just a short taxi ride to Jaco (courtesy of Pumilio) and the beach, this is the place for you! We are already planning a return visit!

Thank you for your kindly comments and rating! All our guests are always more than welcome in our Boutique hotel. We work hard to give the importance that our guests deserve, especially knowing that they are sharing with us their vacation time. Our location path which is a major plus as it is tucked away, at the edge of the jungle, perfect to explore Costa Rica like being pamper at home surrounded by nature, just far enough to be in wilderness but only a skip of a beat away from anything you could ever need in in the area. We decided not to have a restaurant since is a boutique hotel and our guests usually go on tours during the day, reason why we choose the best restaurants in the area and have their menus and bring what our guest chooses and serve it where they prefer, dining room, terrace, balcony suite or even at the pool deck. Sorry to hear your food got cold. Best regards from all the staff that is very grateful that you appreciated our service that they enjoy giving our guests. Looking forward to have you back leaping into happiness at Pumilio!

For breakfast, we decided not to have schedule, guests that are going to tours frequently needs it before 7 a.m. and other want to sleep until late, we change daily because people love long stays. We added “tamales” typical dish for Christmas in Costa Rica, now we serve them at breakfast everyday, so our guest can try them. At Pumilio every day is a Holiday! Nice to hear you went to so many places, we have lots of beaches and amazing things our guests an enjoy a few minutes from the hotel and this summer we have been having the best sunset ever, good you enjoyed them. I have good news for you, last week we finally found a place in Costa Rica to buy memory foams to all are beds so next time your visit will be as perfect as you deserve.

Thank you for your kindly comments and rating! All our guests are always more than welcome in our Boutique hotel. We work hard to give the importance that our guests deserve, especially knowing that they are sharing with us their vacation time. We appreciate you shared your pictures! Pumilio is strategically located at the edge of the jungle, perfect to explore Costa Rica like being pamper at home surrounded by nature, see the toucans, macaws and lots of birds flying naturally and the lizards walking around. Close enough to lots of activities, restaurants and things Jaco or Herradura Beaches offer. Best regards from all the staff that is very grateful that you appreciated our service that they enjoy giving our guests. Looking forward to have you back leaping into happiness at Pumilio!
