Great company, very comfortable, always clean and amazing food! We spent two weeks with Carlos, Andrea and the family and liked it so much, we crossed back across Costa Rica during our travels to stay for another week! Playa Negra is great, a lot better than the touristy, busy Tamarindo. And I would definitely recommend Cafe Playa Negra to anyone... More

What more can I say other than I absolutely love this place. I've been to playa negra six times and have stayed at Cafe Playa Negra the past 3 and refuse to stay anywhere else. Carlos and Andrea are the owners and are super friendly and more than willing to accommodate you in whatever way they can. They are great!... More

We picked Cafe Playa Negra because it was a little bit off the beaten track, but still had AC and a pool - we were looking to relax in Costa Rica and thought this would be the perfect place to stay. When we arrived we were greeted... More

Playa Negra is an almoust unknown beach of Costa Rica, and that is it's fortune, beacuse there aren't many tourist here. The Café Playa Negra is surely the best place where to stay here, it's clean, close to the beach, and the staff is quite friendly. I recommend it to anybody!

The Velarde family is a great host at this Cafe/Hostel in Playa Negra. The hostel is very cozy, great staff , delicious food, natural surroundings, and a beautiful beach a block away. It is a good place to stay and relax while charging batteries and enjoying many outdoor activities. Pura Vida Chicos

Immaculate rooms, relaxing atmosphere, Peruvian food that will delight every appetite...We always visit the Cafe when vacationing in Costa Rica. The Owners/Staff are very warm, and we can relax with our 3 young children, enjoy a meal, listen to great music, and take it all in. This is, by far, our favorite hang out after an amazing day at an... More
