My son and I took the public bus from San Jose to Cahuita and walked from the bus stop to the Guesthouse. Our room was spacious and perfectly clean and tidy. The grounds of the property are lush and meticulously maintained with a stunning range of tropical trees and flowering bushes. Right across the road is a gorgeous beach. The...

I spent a week at this fabulous guesthouse and loved every minute. It is a very beautiful, secure location right across from the beach. Couldn't have been better. The owners go out of their way to be helpful. I felt very welcome -- It surpassed all of my expectations. Highly recommended.

We stayed here in the yellow bungalow two nights and wouldn't change a thing!!!! The grounds are beautiful, by far the prettiest and most well maintained landscaping of the 3 places on the coast we stayed. What a charming location walking distance to a perfect little town. The pool is a nice touch and hard to find on the carribean...

We spent a fantastic week in Cahuita and staying at Playa Negra was the icing on the cake. Greg and Michel are wonderful hosts and have a gem of a spot. A stone's throw from the beach and close to the amazing Cahuita National Park, we couldn't have asked for a better spot to stay. We stayed in the charming...

We stayed here for two nights beginning our week trip to Costa Rica. If you're making the jaunt to the east coast then you need to stay here. It's probably the finest accomodations in Cahuita. Immaculate grounds, wonderful pool, clean and comfortable rooms. The sound of the Carribean Sea crashing the shore a hundred or so yards away. Many thanks...

All the reviews are right. The owners are wonderful hosts. The bungalows are beautiful (and reminds one of the British bungalows in their former colonies). Incredibly well-kept gardens. Who could ask for more? Hosts will provide you guidance for the local attractions if you ask.

Very comfortable - comfy beds with nice sheets, spacious and nicely furnished room, clean. Great pool area, sweet dogs. And in a nice location - close to the town, but not too close, and right across from a really great beach for swimming. Definitely a great value for the cost.

Awsome place to stay. Bungalows are very well-maintained, fully-equiped. Beach in front is clean and so much fun to play in the waves with the children and the body boards (furnished by the guesthouse). Owners Michel and Gred are awsome hosts. The garden is beautifull. Once you're here, you don't want to go out anymore.

I loved our stay at the guesthouse last week. It had some of the best gardens I have seen in all of Costa Rica. The location on playa negra is ideal. It is further from town but I prefer the beach to the town. Very nice pool with the stocked fridge was a nice touch. Greg was a great host....
