My husband and I spent three nights at the Playa Negra Guesthouse and had a wonderful time. Two nights were spent in the fabulous yellow cottage and one in a room. Both were terrific. The grounds are beautiful and the pool refreshing. But best of all is the short walk across the road to the beach. The hosts, Marisse and... More

I stayed here with my husband and two year old son, and we were beyond impressed. The service was top notch, and the room was so beautifully decorated (we stayed in room 1, which you should as well to enjoy the full length window wall into your own private garden). If you can catch a tour with Kenry as well... More

After a lot of research we booked Playa Negra for a long weekend trip out of San Jose. The accommodation was perfect. We stayed in the yellow cottage which was beautiful and spacious - perfect for our family of 4. Kitchen was well equipped for self caterers. Gardens and pool were stunning and the managers very friendly. You are also... More

Playa Negra is the best place to stay in Cahuita. The hosts were WONDERFUL and the property is it's own little paradise. We could walk into town for dinner each night, or to the beach. It's one of my favorite places I've stayed. There isn't anything that could have been better. We were in the Green house and it was... More

Thank you for your kind words and for declaring us the best in Cahuita. Sorry about the bed. The problem in fact was not the mattress but a new thick plasticized mattress pad that has now been replaced. The mattress in your room and all our mattresses are top quality orthopedic. Thanks again for your excellent review. More

I'm happy we found Playa Negra for a 1 night stop in Cahuita before leaving the Carribean coast. It is a lovely spot with very clean, big rooms and great grounds with all sorts of wildlife to be seen including a tree full of metre long iguanas, a few local sloths and heaps of birds. The hosts are great too,... More

campbegs, Owner at Playa Negra Guesthouse, responded to this review

Thank you for the great review and for bringing to our attention the problem with the squeaky bed. The noise in fact was the result of a waterproof mattress pad which is quite thick and as you point out, a little noisy. It has now been replaced thus assuring future guests a squeak-less night. Thanks again and hope you can... More

Spent 6 nights in the green cottage & it was wonderful!! I can only echo all the other positive comments. Pierre & Marise are great hosts & Pierre's love of the area comes through as he generously shares time to take guests (& other tourists he runs into) touring Cahuita natl pk & other places along the coast (without charge)!!

4 days here in November, we stayed in the Green Bungalow. Morning coffee watching humming birds feeding on the verandah, Great hosts, sloths in the garden, what more do you need? The place is a 10 minute walk from the bars and restaurants of Cahuita, enough to keep the noise away. There's a couple of daggy bars and sodas around... More
