We could not find the place where we booked (turns out, it was 9km south of cahuita and we were on foot. The owner of Kelly Creek noticed us walking by in the rain and offered her porch and information. She had no rooms available, but after visiting with us a bit, she graciously offered to allow us to stay... More

I stayed here by myself about a month ago. The location was great, but I felt actively judged by the French woman who appeared to be running the place. When she saw me walk in with a backpack, it was almost as if she thought I was going to steal from the place or cause problems or something (even though... More

Centrally located,it has four rooms equipped with mosquito nets over the beds. Bathrooms are bright and clean. They have hot water showers. A sloth lives in a tree... More

Stayed at Kelly Creek for a week in February. It was the beginning of our holiday, and whay a great way to start it! Right at the park entrance, which made the location perfect. A short walk from the bus station, if you arrive that way. Most days after a wonderful breakfast, we walked the park for a couple hours,... More

A major pro of this hotel is that it is right next to the national park entrance and the beach. It has spacious rooms, mosquito nets, and the friendly owner provided bottled water for free. The rooms are unique in that the windows have wooden shutters, no glass and no screens. Unfortunately this makes the room very dark, even during... More

My wife and I stayed here on the 4th night and second destination of our honeymoon. Erica made us feel extremely welcome told us a lot about the area. Location wise this place is fantastic, it's right on a small beach front and 30 seconds walk from the national park, we did a trek of the park which took us... More

The cabins are quite amazing. Spacious and nice, comes with a fan and mosquito net ( there are plenty of mosquitos here so make sure to use it!). Very friendly staff: we wanted to do some laundry and the owner called someone to pick it up a few minutes later. Only 4 dollars for a really large bag! The view... More

What a charming little hotel this is!! Just a few steps from the beach, you can have a delicious meal enjoying the ocean view and the monkeys hanging from the trees, and then fall asleep listening to the wonderful sounds of the sea. A cozy wooden hotel surrounded by gardens, with a wonderful restaurant and the best paella in Costa... More

We stayed there for two nights as a party of six people. We have been very pleased. The rooms are nice and clean, the owner very helpful and friendly and the location close to the park is great. I was surprised about the crocodile living directly behind the restaurant but it seams to be a very peaceful and shy animal.... More

Nice wooden house and a very friendly host, very good breakfast and just near the sea and the entrance of the national park. It s a must to Visit the Park with all the animals and plants. THW entrance is free.
