A terrible hotel in need of total restoration
Reviewed 16 february, 2017
My wife and I paid $92.00 a night a total $368.00 for four nights. We booked on booking.com and on the web the hotel looked fine but in realty it was terrible. Our standard room was dark and dingy constructed of timber like a garden shed. The shower and bathroom facilities were poor. The swimming pool water was fresh and clean byut there were no sunbeds or pool towels. The pool bar was derelict and full of old dirty broken sunbeds. The surrounding pool area was old and worn out too. The hotel is far from the sea and the town and apparently it is dangerous to walk back from town at night in the dark. The only good thing was the owner refunded our money in full as I told him I was terribly disappointed as we were expecting a first class hotel for the price we had paid. The hotel had no other guests staying there and looked as if few have stayed there recently. This is borne out by Trip Advisor as the last review was early in 2016. Be warned this hotel Is very poor and in need of total refurbishment. Stay here at your peril.
A nice and quiet option next to Puerto Viejo's nicest beach

A nice and quiet option next to Puerto Viejo's nicest beach, Pizote Lodge offers simple rooms in cottages with basic amenities. The lodge is set on a large property with lush gardens, los of wildlife around and Puerto Viejo's beautiful black beach about 150 metres away (but there is nothing in-between that blocks the view or the sounds from the Ocean. There is a small pool with beach chairs to relax, a ping-pong table and a billiard free to use. Especially nice when travelling with kids.
Reasonable lodge motel across the street from Playa Negra!
Reviewed 7 april, 2016
Found this place online for a short, one-night stay in Puerto Viejo with a friend. It looked like a resort hotel that was very happening in the 80's, but was now kind of a ghost town! I think we were the only ones there? The couple running it were super friendly and helpful, though! We were shown to our room. It was very "rustic", not for everyone, but it actually suited our needs! Had a shower with hot water and the bedding and beds were fine! There is a pool, wifi in the lodge, included a huge, Cosat Rican breakfast with lots of fresh fruit, and it's directly across the street from Playa Negra, and a short walk from town.

I have been in a lot of places and this one is the worst ever! The location is really convenient however the amenities are pretty cheap and you have to chase management to get a towel. The place needs maintenance. Beds are not comfortable and breakfast time is really bad. From 8 to 930 and check out at 11, so if you plan to wake up early have breakfast and enjoy the beach, here won't happen. Besides there is a nasty smell of rotten fruit all the time! Never again there.
Overpriced for what you get
Reviewed 21 january, 2016
El Pizote is a little old and tired but in a beautiful location carved out of the jungle and only 200 yards to the beach. We paid over $140/night for a spacious room but it had intermittent hot water so you never knew what the shower was going to be like. We were given one thin towel apiece each day. No face towels, no beach towels, no wash cloths. My whole Costa Rica experience was like that: a little expensive for what you got. The food is just "okay", which really means "not very good" and you pay American prices for it. I felt a little ripped off everywhere. For instance, we asked the manager at El Pizote if they offered laundry service. His wife had our one load of laundry done for us and then charged us $30! I was appalled. But I'll have to say, Carlos and his wife were very nice and Carlos spoke very good English.
