About the hotel

Elegant handcrafted hardwood cottages 50 meters from the beach.

Designed for maximum air circulation, the units are elevated high off the ground, cooled by sea breezes during the day and mountain backdrafts at night.

With an open-floor plan that is simple yet practical, the cottage has a fully-equipped kitchen, large refrigerator, king-size bed and a large open-air bathroom with a striking glass block shower and all the hot water you need. The unit is screened in all around.

A large porch/deck looking out to sea doubles as an outdoor living room, where beach music melds with the sights & sounds of the forest birds.

Designed for 2 people who wish privacy, the cottage, and its location, provide the foundation for a holiday of rest, relaxation, and renewal.

The Mother Dear experience is definitely more than the sum of its parts.


Located in the south eastern part of Costa Rica just a few kilometers from Puerto Viejo, Mother Dear sits directly in front of Playa Negra just steps from the blue waters of the Caribbean Sea.

Puerto Viejo is both funky, yet cosmopolitan (43 nationalities at last count), with charms all its own. When you feel like venturing away from your peaceful home base, you will find a myriad of activities available within short distances of “Mother Dear”.

With its unspoiled nature, the beach at Playa Negra is reminiscent of the 1970’s: don’t be surprised if you sometimes see more wild horses than people out enjoying the salt air!

If you are still a traveler rather than a tourist, yet are now welcoming a few more creature comforts when you venture away from home, then “Mother Dear” might be just the place for you.

But wherever you decide to stay: come to Puerto Viejo!!!
