Totem Hotel Resort
TOTEM BEACH RESORT HOTEL, located in the southern Caribbean coast of Costa Rica, adorns the beautiful Playa Cocles in the town of Puerto Viejo of Talamanca. This area is unlike any other in Costa Rica due to its unique blend of Indigenous, Costarican and Jamaican cultures. The hotel has a pool, Jacuzzi / relaxation area with hammocks, Surf School, Laundry Service, Private parking, free WIFI, Bar & Restaurant and Tropical Garden.
TOTEM HOTEL BEACH RESORT participates in various environmental projects since 2004, including storm water reserves, use of roof - deck (outer), garbage basket and chairs in recycling plastic replacing wood. This prevents the indiscriminate felling of trees, reduces the demand for virgin materials and reduces pollution. Moreover, we have installed an innovative plant for wastewater treatment, obtaining clean water again by 97% to be carried into rivers and thus reduce pollution of this resource. We have tried to conserve trees and plants so we work daily in the care and renewal of our tropical garden, planting new trees and plants, and giving appropriate treatment to the already exist.
Our Bar Restaurant Totem Mediterraneo and Peace & Love cafeteria, has a spectacular view of the beach and specializes in original Italian food where everything is homemade.
Our rooms have been tastefully decorated for the most sencibles tastes. The sound of the sea, the singing of birds, the awakening of the howler monkeys and the swaying leaves of the trees with the wind, will guide you to an unforgettable experience.
