Need to work on the cleaning of bathrooms and kitchenette including restroom at the pool.Great location. Manager and staff were very nice. Wake up to howler monkeys each morning. Chance to see some local wildlife around the hotel. We walked everywhere from the hotel. Beach just across the road which has very little traffic.

I spent a couple of nights with my wife and Kids at this hotel, the place is good just for that.. to spend the night...while spending the rest of your day at the beach, the rooms were large and clean, which is what you need when traveling with the family...The limited staff was nice and friendly and always willing to...

Somehow this place had a kind of charming touch with the little picturesque library, the tropical garden with some stone sculptures and the restaurant without walls, but funny plush frogs on each table, as well as the nice music that kept going on without being too loud to feel disturbed. Not a five star hotel, but the owner was very... More

Although this hotel, with its excellent location across from the beach, should be a going concern, it has been hampered by several changes of ownership and management over the years, most of whom appear to know little about the hospitality industry. I have been a loyal fan for a long time in spite of this because of the hotel's location... More

We were charged 50 bucks, the man next to us was charged 60. The Italian man working the counter told us the island was full and we would have a hard time finding a place, that was a lie. We went down the street the next day and found a private cabin for 30 bucks. Go to Cabinas Brigitte just... More

I stayed at the Jaguar in Feb 2007 and found it very disappointing, practically deserted, dirty pool and all furniture very old and shabby. I'm going back to Cahuita this month and will take a look at the Jaguar as friends have told me that it's been renovated and cleaned up. I realise my review is a bit out of... More

For $40 a day, you can lodge up to five people per room. There are vaulted ceilings, ensuite shower, foam mattresses, TV, and the beautiful Playa Negra within 200 metres of the room. Also available in each room are magazines in five languages. The front counter sells beverages, snacks, and bottles of Imperial cerveza. Tourists are mostly American, German, and... More

One advice, do not give your credit card number to Hotel Jaguar in Cahuita ‘cause they’ll automatically charge 50% of your 2-day stay or 30% or your 3+day stay, even 2 months ahead… And if you try to cancel even 5 days in advance, they do not refund. Stay away from them.

The room was a decent size. Nothing fancy but acceptable. The bathroom’s not too new but it was alright. The pool was nice (a good size) with a shower right by it. Playa Negra is right out front.

I have stayed at this hotel a few times over the years and am glad to see that the new owners are doing renovations and taking care of this excellent property located right across the road from Black Beach, on the Caribbean. What the Jaguar has that most hotels in Cahuita don't is large, airy rooms that catch the ocean... More
