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.

Kelly Creek is very different and may not be for everyone. The hotel has only four rooms, but they are very large. However, there is no glass in the windows and also no screen wire. My only complaint was that the rooms were a bit dark, but this seems to be the case in many motels in Costa Rica. We... More

My family loved it here! It's just steps from the beach at Cahuita National Park, and the rooms are spacious and airy--especially great breezes at night. The breakfasts were delicious, and during it we were invited out back to feed crocodiles in the creek. We also saw a capuchin monkey and many birds and crabs. The owner was friendly and... More

The proprietor Domingo was so warm and welcoming after our very long drive. The hotel had Old World, European charm. We arrived at 10pm exhausted and the place was like a dream. Tip: wear socks to bed because there are teeny mosquitoes who will find you quite delightful. The hotel abuts a national park so the sounds can be wild... More

My wife and I stayed here for 5 nights at the end of March and were delighted with our choice. The location is perfect, just yards from the beach and the National Park entrance and a 5 minute stroll along the main street to restaurants etc. The Hotel has a single wooden building for guests set off the ground with...

Loved staying here. The hotel is entirely made of wood with large Windows. Very clean. Steps to the beach and the national park as well as a great assortment of restaurants. I was only sorry we couldn't stay more than 2 nights.

Marie Claude and Andres, the owners, and Adelina, their maid, makes this place even more special. We liked the location, the unique house architecture, their talking parrot Verdi, and their fantastic paella. More on the paella - it's probably best to tell Andres in advance because it takes a lot of prep work. It's huge, so make sure to bring... More
