It is really nice & calm place. Our room had outdoor sitting which was quite nice... It is next to beach, restaurants and walkable distance to downtown... Also, Marise was really helpful at reception as well as suggesting places in cahuita... Overall, great experience!

We stayed at the Playa Negra Guesthouse (Blue cottage) for 5 nights in June 2014. We had an excellent time. The grounds were maculate, the cottage cozy and clean and the managers (Pierre and Marise) were wonderful and made our stay so enjoyable! It was so much more than we expected and we would defiantly go back!

We came to Playa Negra Guesthouse from a very rustic home in Playa Cocles (in which we very much loved). Checking in to the Playa Negra Guesthouse was the lap of luxury from where we had just come from. It was fresh, very clean and the pool was just what we needed. Marise was very informative and helpful! Our accommodations... More

We loved our stay here - relaxed and cool pace to life. We spread out across the lovely Yellow cottage loving its veranda. Beach just across the road was all ours and amazing waves and always great to cool down in the lovely pool. Service great and they give you lots of fresh beach/pool towels. I'd recommend Brigitte's just round... More

I take reviews with a grain of salt but in this case not only were the positive reviews accurate but the visitors pictures as well. Pierre and Marise were great hosts and Pierre's guide through the Cahuita National Park was both informative and fun, not to mention free. The grounds are kept immaculate, the pool sparkling clean and totally up... More

My husband and I had a great stay. The property is just beautiful, and Pierre and Marise were fantastic hosts! Pierre is really enthusiastic and knowledgeable about the area... if you have the opportunity to talk with him or go on a tour with him, do it! Marise and Pierre were so helpful... without them we would've missed our bus... More
