The open air restaurant at the cahuita national park hotel is literally just a few meters from the beach where kelly creek enters the Caribbean Sea at the entrance to cahuita national park. It has an awesome view of the ocean and beach out towards cahuita point. The environs around the hotel and restaurant are very lush green with wavering... More

We keep going back, fabulous staff, great location, beautiful deck views, great food, clean a/c rooms. Just a great place ! Right on the park entrance close to all stores and restaurants. Listen to the waves crashing all night long. Great hotel with a bar and restaurant right on site.

Can't beat the price - a basic, clean room with an ocean view for $45U.S/night. Great location - at the entrance to the National Park and right on the beach! Several restaurants and a small grocery are within a block. Need to call to make a reservation. I could not reach them by email. My room had wifi early morning,... More

Am reviewing their restaurant on here as they don't seem to have a place to rate it on tripadvisor. Even though this restaurant has a fabulous view, the service is awful. We waited over 90 minutes for food,,,,and we are still waiting, as it never actually arrived. I wouldn't bother eating here if I were you!

The Cahuita National Park Hotel is where we ended up after investigating about 10 better rated places, all of which were booked solid. It is literally at the end of the road in Cahuita, which itself is a run-down little town between Limon (a corrupt, shabby town to the north, dominated by gangs and corrupt government officials that dominate the...

A small, older hotel right on the coast and next door to a treasure of a national park where entrance fee is optional. Just a few blocks from the bus station. Well, everything in Cahuita is within a few blocks. I pray that this place and others like it on the Costa Rican Caribe coast will remain and not be... More

The National Park Restaurant & Hotel is located the adjacent beach next to the Kelly Creek Entrance Station of the Cahuita National Park. If you like nachos with liquid cheese from a can combined with white sauce that looks and tastes like mayonnaise, you will love the nachos served here. For me, the avocado slices and the minimal lettuce under... More

This hotel is a treasure. The rooms are plain but comfortable and the bathrooms clean and well-appointed. The shower provides plenty of hot water and is spacious if you like sharing (which we do ;-) Most rooms face the Caribbean and the gentle sound of the surf can rock you peacefully to sleep. Maria, the hotel manager, was responsive to... More

This was a basic hotel with a 10 star location, being right there at the entrance of the National Park. the oceanfront views were amazing. The staff was friendly, few spoke English though. The towels were small, and trying to get more was a little difficult. But you have to realize you are in a foreign country and things just... More
