We came here for the first leg of our Costa Rican excursion and were happy to find Magellan Inn. It's a small, quiet spot near cahuita. It was perfect for us, being close to the beach and the town, but far enough away to get the quiet isolation that we were looking for. Terry and the staff here were great...

We very much enjoyed our stay in Cahuita, and this hotel was beautiful, clean, helpful and the staff was very welcoming. Great place for a chilled out stay by the beach. I would especially suggest it to couples.

We stayed at this lovely inn for 3 nights with our teenage girls and absolutely loved it. The peaceful garden setting was exquisite, the private hammock in front of the room a favorite spot and the breakfast of tropical fruits and fresh bread delicious. Owner Terry was very attentive and helpful with any advice or suggestions one may need. We...

I travelled to Cahuita on work related matters and brought my family with me. We were received by the owner Terri who is a very pleasant and accommodating lady. We were housed in room number 6 and my mom in room 5. The hotel was full of greenery and lushious foliage and had a farm like atmosphere. It was very...

Terry at Magellan Inn runs a small hotel tucked away in the serenity and a short distance from the Cahuita national park. The whole ambiance of the hotel is so comfortable. A place to chill or keep active with the various tours that Terry and her staff are happy to suggest and organize. While there indulge in a massage and...

I spent Easter week there last year and as a woman travelling alone found it to be the perfect place. My main goal in coming to CR was to go to the Sloth Sanctuary, but that only took up one of the 5 days I spent there. Every other second was spent enjoying the beautiful environment, proximity to the jungle,...

This was a magical place to stay. You walk in to an open air reception area where terry greets you with a warm, kind smile. Then Leda fixes you a delicious tropical drink. Her piña coladas were delicious but my favorite was the coconut water with rum. Yum! Terry fixed us dinner three times and we were never disappointed. My...

Finding Magallan Inn was a little bit of an adventure, but once you found it, it is a little bit of heaven after the dust and bumpy drive getting to it. The garden is beautiful, excotic and full with flowers, little animal and colourful birds, including the Parrot that liked to show off as soon as he got your attention....

After spending 8 relaxing days at the Magellan Inn I can highly recommend this little slice of paradise. From the ambiance of the open air reception/ dining area to the crystal clear refreshing pool, comfortable beds with crisp linens changed daily, fresh flowers in the room and great attention to detail this place satiated all of my senses.

Three of us stayed at this hotel for two nights in January, 2013. It was clean, had a nice pool and green surroundings. Pet parrots provided some entertainment too. However, despite these attributes, it was the worst hotel experience of our two weeks in Costa Rica. To accommodate the three of us, a very uncomfortable cot was added to an...
