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

Beautiful garden, very nice hosts, great accommodations. Quiet beach right across the street. There are few restaurants nearby and more a 10 minute walk or short drive away. We stayed in the Blue Cottage with our family and it was fantastic. Very low key area. Nice little farmers market in town on Sundays. More action in Puerto Viejo 15 drive... More

We have done a lot of traveling but are new at writing reviews, but we felt we owed it to Playa Negra Guesthouse to confirm that the positive things we read from other reviewers on tripadvisor are true. We decided to make room for the trip to Cahuita in our itinerary (to see the Caribbean wildlife and water) even though... More

We recently enjoyed a mini-vacation in the fully equipped and very charming Blue Cottage with our adult kids. Even the gardens were beautiful, and offered a lush tropical privacy. The managers went out of their way to make our stay enjoyable and even helped us with our car problems! Everything was within walking distance, and we enjoyed a different restaurant... More

I just realized that I forgot to do another review of PNG. I was here for my fourth visit back in July and I dearly love this place and this community. I stayed in the green cottage for the second time. I was here during the rainy season and you need to expect rain at that time of the year.... More

First and foremost, the managers are exceptional. Totally unexpected, Pierre took us on two different excursions (at no cost). The first was to Cahuita National Park. Although we had gone on our own the day before, with Pierre we saw so much more wildlife. The second trip was to an animal rescue center and a beautiful nearby beach. Pierre is... More

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
