My family recently spent our winter break at Playa Negra Guesthouse. The yellow cottage was perfect for our family of four. The grounds were beautiful (sloths, parrots, toucans, howler monkeys, iguanas, all within the yard!) and well-kept; the property was clean; the owners and staff were super friendly and incredibly helpful; the location was perfect, easy walking distance to the...

Playa Negra GH exceeded my expectations. Our room was lovely -- spacious, clean, and the bed very comfortable, with an outdoor seating area. The grounds are stunningly beautiful with a gorgeous pool and lots of wildlife (howler monkeys, iguanas) to see while lazing in the pool. Pierre, Marise and Annie are very helpful and go out of their way to...

Playa Negra was a wonderful and accommodating hotel. It was a calm place to rest and enjoy the carribean coast from, just across the street from access to a quiet beach in Cahuita. The hotel has a higher end feel and seemed extremely safe. The front desk was unusually helpful and accommodating.

Having visited Playa Negra Guesthouse once previously with friends, I knew what to expect - a great location, a great staff, a great setting, a great experience! This time I brought my family and it was even better. The weather and ocean conditions this trip were perfect! These were some of the best days we have spent anywhere in Costa...

The Playa Negra Guesthouse is one of the best places we've ever stayed. Our room was adorable with big double doors that we left open all night to the jungle breeze; the maid service was impeccable. The grounds are very well kept, very pretty and the pool is sparkling clean. Marise was so helpful, sat with my husband for easily...

We (family with four kids aged 12, 10, 8 and 4) just spent two weeks in Playa Negra Guesthouse with Marise and Pierre who where incredibly good hosts. Clean and well functioning cabins, amazing wildlife around the cabins, great breakfast, and a wonderfully guided tour by Pierre through the national park all at a very reasonable price. Thank you.

We spent two weeks at the Playa Negra Guesthouse. It was the perfect base for exploring Costa Rica's Caribbean coast. It is safe, clean and friendly. Lots of good restaurants within walking distance. Marise and Pierre are welcoming and helpful. We would encourage anyone to stay here.

Everything was just perfect !!! The piece of nature surrounding this guesthouse is so beautiful !!! We could sit on the porch forever... watching the wildlife, the sloth in the palm tree, all kinds of birds, monkeys in the trees. On the last day of our stay here, we had the hazardous idea of buying a ceviche on the beach......

Spent 11 nights here with our children who enjoyed the pool and accommodation. We had a very relaxing holiday and would recommend this place for all. Rooms are good and clean. The nature is all around you and we saw many animals in the hotel area. The owners are great and extremely helpful and want you to enjoy your holiday.

Our spacious room with kitchen was very comfortable, and we had a private terrace with its own garden where we had breakfast. The gardens and pool are beautifully maintained. Breakfast is extra, and we found one was ample for two. The couple who run the guesthouse could not have been more helpful with information and recommendations about restaurants and transfers....
