My room was very clean and everything was functioning properly. This hotel is a very short walk to the beach and a Reggae Bar /... More

Very relaxing place to be on the edge of Cahuita. Fully equipped cabins with outdoor cooking facilities and fridge and hammock on your deck; comfortable rooms with mosquito netting over the bed; extremely friendly and welcoming owners; howler monkeys in the trees .... I could go on but think you get the picture. It's very relaxing, very well kept and... More

Lovely place and the owners are a great couple who really make you feel welcome and they gave a good introduction of the town. I rented a bicycle from the owner and discovered the town and national park. Would stay longer if I could. Greetings from Sweden Frans

The room also had an outside kitchen including fridge, a table and a hammock. In the morning it is very... More
