We really enjoyed our staying here. The owners were extremely helpful and let us even cook in their kitchen. A color-changing small gecko was the highlight for our kids after breakfast. The nearby river is very nice for swimming. Water is not too cold. Breakfast is simple, but enjoyable with fresh orange juice and homemade food such as gallo pinto... More

We arrived to Piuri Cabinas as part of our honey moon. We took the trip by bus (3 buses and a ride from Alexander the wonderful owner of the cabinas, who came to pick us up)- and it was beyond our dreams. Alexander and his lovely wife were the perfect hosts, they have a private piece of heaven, just few... More

Stayed at Piuri one night after a very long day. We hiked up the mountain all the way from the town of Rio Celeste (4km straight up) with our packs. When we got to piuri we thought the price of $55 for 3 of us was pretty steep considering we had just payed 8 bucks a piece the night before... More

At the end of the road, this is a nice place to relax, away from it all. It is rustic, and that is what we were looking for. A small, quaint hotel with very nice owners. Large rooms with three comfortable queen beds. Also a small refrigerator. The room also came with candles, just in case. My two grandsons and... More

We spent 3 nights in "the egg" which is a really unique acommodation! Of course, it doesn't offer 5-star-luxury but the location is priceless. The owners are lovely and very helpful, they serve delicious costarican breakfast and dinner and the sourroundings are beautiful with direct access to the blue Rio celeste. I definitely recommend this place! Cornelia from Germany

Service was exceptional, including house keeping and meals, friendly staff. Our room with three beds and a bath was very clean with hot water in the shower. Located east of Bijagua on a very rough unpaved road Cabinas Piuri is worth the extra effort because of the close proximity to Tenorio NP and the beautiful atmosphere of the hostel itself.... More

The ordeal of getting to Tenorio National Park is worth it for the stunning scenery especially the azure Rio Celeste. But then we saw our room and we flipped. We stayed in the Egg for 1 night--the photos probably do not do it justice, but it is an oval Yurt-type structure with amazing hand-crafted wood fixtures, hand-painted terra cotta and... More

Their casados were very good. - being next to Tenorio NP was enjoyable for we started our walk early and saw toucans, monkeys and... More

We had a short sojourn at Cabinas Piuri during February 2012. Our accommodation was a large room (2 large beds (one a King size), eating/sitting area) with a private bath. Spacious and airy and in the clouds. There were a couple other accommodations in the same building, all in a row, all with outside entrances, all with good windows. We... More
