We started our family vacation to Costa Rica in Cahuita and spent four nights in the Playa Negra Guesthouse. The place is a wonderful oasis in the djungle, a 10-15 min walk from the centre of Cahuita. The perfectly clean rooms are elegantly furnished with a lot of taste and sense for detail. The nice pool is located in a...

I read all the great reviews of Playa Negra Guesthouse before our trip - and our experience lived up to the positive reviews and then some. It has the just the right blend of being off the beaten path yet convenient and comfortable. The grounds are spectacular. Every beach in the area, including the one steps from the guesthouse, is...

This place is perfect. Across the street from the beach, but has its own beautifully landscaped grounds with a pool. Large iguanas, many birds, and tree frogs can be see right on the premises. The rooms are spacious, bright, an airy. The guesthouse is located away from the bustle of town, just far enough away for the perfect stroll. We...

We stayed in the Blue Cottage for 6 days in Cahuita. It is set right in the middle of your own little paradise! Beautiful plants and animals everywhere plus the beach right across the street! We loved Dolly, Pepper and Shep the resident doggies...they kept us company throughout our visit. Marise and Pierre were absolutely wonderful to us! Marise set...

The facility is really a little tropical paradise. It offers rooms and cabinas (bungolows). We stayed in two different rooms over a couple of days. Both were perfectly equipped with fridge, coffee-maker. Everything is in top condition, each unit has its own privat terrace, there is a beautiful pool area and a very clean pool with a barbaque at your...

The experience my girlfriend and I had at Playa Negra Guesthouse was outstanding. We took the bus in from San Jose and after getting our bearings out of the bus station, we were able to walk to the hotel in no more than 20 minutes. Although it appears somewhat out of the way on a map, it is within very...

We found this hotel under B & B's in Cahuita, it was number 1 and sounded exactly what we were after, so booked to stay for 3 nights, and what a stay it was. We were greeted by Dolly and Pepper (the owners dogs) and the manager at the time Marise and Pier, and what a lovely couple they were....

We are leaving after staying three days in Cahuita. First off, the hotel is located right across the street from the Playa Negra beach which is awesome. The rooms are spacious, clean, and the service...Amazing. The managers even offered to drive us to Puerto Viejo for free so we wouldn't have to take the bus. What nice people.

It's a lovely place to stay. Just 5 minutes from Cahuita town. We hired a bike and it was easy to get around and explore the area. The hotel has different bungalows hidden behind a wild scenery full of plants. Beach is just one minute. Wish breakfast was included but there are places nearby anyway. Greg and Michele really made...

A relaxing stay, a beautiful beach, friendly staff fluent in english. This mini resort had it all! Peace and quite, drinks by the pool, steps from a nearly deserted beach, comfortable and exotic rooms and cottages with a privet feel and absolutely beautiful landscaping.
