My daughter lives in turrialba, Costa Rica, and I was planning on visiting her for a few days, and then going down to cahuita with her for a few more days. I reserved the hotel ahead of time and everything was in order. However, once we arrived at the hotel the owners told us try had no reservation under our... More

After a pretty dreadful stay elsewhere we very relieved when arrived to the peaceful tranquility of this place. The rooms were spacious and clean with a lovely terrace to relax on. The gardens were beautiful and well maintained and the pool was spotless. The owner was a really lovely lady and very helpful. We'd been having trouble withdrawing money from... More

We knew we were in for a treat when we reserved at Playa Negra but our stay was beyond expectations. Staying in the Blue Cottage was the icing on the cake. It was so perfect for our family after spending 10 days traveling through Costa Rica. Maryse and Pierre are amazing hosts, the garden is beautifully maintained, the pool is... More

Amazing! We could not have been happier with our first trip to Costa Rica and choosing to stay here. The guesthouse was quaint, comfortable and beautifully taken care of. Marise and Pierre put a lot of love into the work they do and we felt it! Everyday they went above and beyond to make sure we were comfortable and to... More

From beginning to end, our stay was exactly what we needed! Marise and Pierre are the consumate hosts and consistently went above and beyond to ensure that our first-time visit to Costa Rica would definitely leave fond and exciting memories. I have not stopped raving to my family, friends, and co-workers about the beauty of the grounds (thank you Jorge!),... More

Lovely hosts, beautiful gardens and relaxing pool! The attention to detail and the graciousness of the hosts made our stay perfect. Being right across from Playa Negra, a short walk to town and Cahuita National Park made the location fantastic. Pierre gave us an entertaining and informative walk through the National Park. Marise gave us great restaurant and travelling suggestions.... More

I cannot recommend this place highly enough. The grounds are beautiful, the rooms are very well equipped and immaculate. But the thing that really made this guesthouse stand out is the welcome from the managers, Pierre and Marise. In addition to providing excellent tips on where to eat in the village, Pierre led us on a guided walk in Cahuita... More

This is the perfect spot, if you're planning a trip to the caribbean coast in Costa Rica. Alone the garden would be worth a visit! The room was big and clean and had a nice terrace. The two owners, Marise and Pierre were the nicest people and very helpful recommending good local places to eat and things to do in... More

Marise and Pierre are excellent hosts. They made our first experience of the Caribbean coast of Costa Rica a true pleasure. The garden and pool is a delight and the accommodation first rate. The location is superb - restaurants nearby, the beach directly opposite, the Cahuita National Park just 20 mins walk away, the town also close. This is a... More
