I first visited Casa Amarilla's restaurant which offers exquisite meals using the finest ingredientes and also local fruits and vegetables. Rosemarie and her husband (owners) make a great effort to please your needs and make you feel comfortable. Lately I stayed in one of the cabins and the experience was just as good. Shared showers and bathrooms where always immaculate... More

Casa Amarilla is a tranquil oasis situated on the quiet Punta Chame peninsular, the perfect place to unwind. We stayed in a pleasant room in the main house, which was tastefully decorated. There was a very nice pool area with plenty of seating. Rose Marie was a very attentive hostess. There was a good range of meals which were well... More

Punta Chama is a strange place, lots of potential but hardly anyone here. In any event, a private cabin at Casa Amarilla is a wonderful way to spend the weekend. The bathrooms are shared but they are large and spacious with two toilets, two showers, and two sinks so you are never waiting. Most importantly, the food is excellent. The... More

This is an excellent stay on a beautiful beach. The rooms are comfortable and the service is perfect. We had delicious meals with a European touch. Beer, wine and other beverages were availabale at our beck and call. The área is famous for action sports, but we just walked on the beach and swam in the pool. This is a... More

This is a very pleasant place to stay. There may be cheaper options around, but if you would like to spend a couple of relaxing days, go there. Chef Cristiaan makes very nices meals and Rose Marie is a perfect host. We stayed in one of the nice and spacious rooms at the 'old' building.

I currently live in Pma city, and whenever I want a quick comfy getaway i choose hostal casa amarilla, its very comfy, great relationship price-quality, the food is amazing (and I'm very picky with the food, not even in Pma i have found such good food/price) I recommended to anyone who is interested in a tranquil place to relax.

Where to start?! My boyfriend and I stayed at Casa Amarilla for 10 days in Cabana 2. We were in Punta Chame for a kitesurfing instructor course and decided that $35/night was well worth it due to the length of our stay. The cabin was very nice albeit small. No air conditioning and only a small fan so during the... More

Came here for New Year's Eve dinner, impressed with the place. Excellent customer service by the owner(s) and the wait staff. The price for a legit french gourmet meal, by a french chef is a great value. The property is well kept and clean, if I was looking for accomodation options I would definitely consider staying here. Great ambiance and... More

Arriving at Hostal Casa Amarilla was great. Bus straight to the door and love french hosts that spoke French, English and Spanish. Few guests were staying and we had booked out Cabana only the day before. Comfortable beds and clean rooms with our own little cupboard, lamp and fan. Beautiful pool, with a table in it for drinking and relaxing... More
