Overall the bungalows are cute and comfortable, but all the reviews we read in travel guides spoke of having breakfast with the butterflies or resting in a hammock. There weren't any hammocks, butterflies or even breakfast. The owner spoke no English so we didn't receive an explanation as to why these things were no longer available. The pool was warm...

Although a lot of reviewers seem to have problems with the owners of Calalú, I have received nothing but good service from them, and they do not strike me as particularly unfriendly or unreasonable, and definitely not mean, as some seem to think.

Everything was OK, the bungalows are clean and warm. The pool was OK but the owner threw some soap into it while we were enjoying the pool at night. They say that there is a restaurant but it is always empty, maybe because of the owners. But if you don`t talk to them, you can enoy your trip.

Pretty hotel and extremely reasonable rates. Everything was on the newer side. Bungalows were adorable and private. Pool is refreshing but is very small. Don't recomend the resteraunt on site but you are within walking distance from many good alternatives.

We stayed at Calalu for 4 nights from Dec 22 to the 26th. This was the only part of our 18 day trip to Costa Rica and Panama that we booked ahead, just to make sure that we had a reasonable place to stay at such a busy time of year. Overall, we were satisfied. It was more or less...
