My colleagues and I made reservations for the 25th through the 28th of June. Prior to our check-in date, the country experienced immense flooding and mudslides. As a result of the weather, we were unable to safely travel to the Caribbean coast. The President of Costa Rica even declared a state of emergency. While working through booking.com to obtain a...

Dear Sir, We regret that the shuttle you had reserved for your transportation to Cabinas Nirvana failed to provide the service. Indeed, given the usual bad weather this time of the year in the National Park Braulio Carrillo, the road number 32 was closed to traffic for shorter or longer periods depending on the severity of existing damage. However, the... More

Host are execrable and not professional at all using black humor. They're just here to take your money and enjoy their holiday life. "They are not charity" as Mr.German said. Breakfast nearly impossible to eat (too salty) and 10$, definitely don't eat there. When leaving I asked politely "where are you from" and "how long have you been there" as... More

We stayed here for 4 nights in early April and were very pleased with our choice! The cabins are very clean and well maintained. Our cabin ( 6 ) had a cosy double bed with good quality sheets and bedding, and the bathroom was a good size with a good shower that always had hot water. There is a small... More

We were there in Mid March. The management and staff were fantastic. The owners a husband and wife team from Austria, bend over backwards to make sure we were happy. The rooms and yard were immaculate. Everything worked, beds were comfortable, lots of hot water, great balcony etc. The best and I mean the best part was the wildlife that... More

A romantic nature retreat close to the wildlife We read all the positive reviews about this place and hence our expectations were quite high, but what we got actually exceeded what we could wish for! The wooden cabins are located in a very green and peaceful area away from the noisy bars and restaurants yet close enough to the beautiful... More

We only stayed one night but regretted it as soon as we arrived to this lovely place. Due to prior planning we had to travel the day after, but could have stayed here a week. We were picked up by the bus station and he showed us the town on our way to the hotel. Very friendly owners, nice premises,... More

I stayed here for just one night and thoroughly enjoyed my stay. The owners personally showed me around and Yolanda even helped me figure out how to recharge my prepaid Costa Rica cell phone account. 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 ....
