Had a great time. No need to go elsewhere. A beautiful environment created by nature and Chanti. The tranquility sound of the ocean waves, the songs of the insects and of course the howler monkeys in the huge garden. Easy to reach by bus. Well equiped two cosy apartment with great jungle and ocean view. Did you ever dream about...

We stayed for 2 nights and wish we had longer. As other reviewers state, jungle joy is only a few minutes drive from a number of great beaches, but you feel as if you are really in the jungle. The bungalows are cute, quaint and beautiful. We saw toucans from our deck and heard the howler monkeys very close by....

Jungle Joy is set far enough back in the jungle that you feel you are miles and miles away from everything yet you still have an ocean view from your deck! There are two small bungalows next to each other so no worries about a crowd. The rooms are very open with a beautiful bedroom and full kitchen with a...

We had an amazing stay at Jungle joy retreat! Chanti is a perfect host, attentive and relaxed and the huts are really well equipped and very nice. The location is just beautiful, close to the beach but in the middle of the jungle! Being woken up by howler monkeys was a new but very fun experience for us. Absolutely recommend...

Me, my husband and our young daughter (23 months old, so yes, this place is kid friendly) stayed here for Christmas 2012 and had a truly amazing time. Despite filling our time with lots of activities (including running up and down the local beaches after our little girl), this was a perfect place to relax and unwind and forget about...

Me and my family (including our dog) stayed in this place for a weekend. It is everything you need to have a nice stay. The cabins are located in the middle of the jungle with a beautiful ocean view from the bed. The location is great, it is near Manuel Antonio, Dominical and Uvita so it is a perfect spot...

we spent four days in jungle joy, the webpage will provide all the information you need, good place to enjoy sounds and colours of the near jungle, skillful management; you definitely need a vehicle to get there, the watsu massage is a big plus.

I can sure write extensive stories about how beautiful it was and how hospitable Chanti (the host) is but this is something you need to experience yourself. This place is sure still a paradise on earth and close to several hot spots such as Manuel Antonio. It's located on a mountain away from all Lonely Planet travellers close to a...
