Exceptional staff and a fantastic stay at Playa Negra Guest House! Manager gives super tours of area. Recommend 100% on all aspects. Next time I want to also come back with my family to enjoy Cahuita and the lovely guesthouse. Wildlife, nature and fabulous guesthouse in quiet, fun village!

Our family of four stayed at Playa Negra Guesthouse for 5 nights at the beginning of April. The rooms, pool area and gardens are spotless! I highly recommend this guesthouse to anyone wishing to stay in the Cahuita area. The national park is within walking distance as well as lots of shops and restaurants (if you can tear yourself away... More

This is a real gem of a guesthouse in Cahuita. Our family of 3 (2 adults + 10 year old) stayed in their Green Cottage for 3 nights and loved every minute of it. It's a great place to decompress and enjoy hearing the sounds of the monkeys, frogs and other wildlife and yet within walking distance to town. Marise... More

I chose Cahuita because it is a small town and I wanted to really feel like we were in Costa Rica (not at a 5 star resort that could be located anywhere along any beautiful beach). I travelled alone with my two very active boys (ages 8 and 5). Playa Negra Guesthouse was the perfect place to stay for this... More

We just returned from 3 lovely days at the Playa Negra Guest House. This was our 3rd stay there and we will keep going back. Why try other places when you have already found the perfect Costa Rica vacation spot? The 2 bedroom cabins are just beautiful and have fully equipped kitchens so you don't have to eat every meal...

My 10 year old daughter and I stayed at Playa Negra Guesthouse on our first trip to Costa Rica this past January. We had a wonderful time there. The managers Pierre and Marise were so kind, welcoming and generous to us. Pierre took us on an amazing tour of Cahuita National Park and some other sites (in search of the... More

This was our second stay at Playa Negra guesthouse, and we thoroughly enjoyed both. Cahuita has become a great beach town, with lots of great inexpensive restaurants and a funky vibe. Playa Negra offers a secure and private place to visit from, with comfortable cottages and private verandas.

Stayed here with a few girlfriends and absolutely loved it. We stayed in the green cottage which was very spacious and clean. The grounds and pool are beautiful and well maintained. Marise & Pierre are wonderful hosts and Pierre gives fantastic tours of the local national park to see animals in the wild (which are everywhere!). Good location near town,... More

I would highly recommend this guest house. The management goes way beyond what is required of them. Pierre obviously loves what he does. We stayed in the blue cottage which was perfect for 2 adults and 2 kids. The pool was great for the kids who would have spent the whole week in it. One suggestion, we tried to do... More

We had a wonderful stay at the Playa Negra Guesthouse and would recommend it to anyone looking for accommodation in the area. The hosts were outstanding and our room was very peaceful and private. We were close to town, the beach and all amenities. Wonderful stay! Also recommend going to the wildlife rescue centre while visiting. Thanks for such a... More
