The location is great, just a stones throw from the national park with it's gorgeous walks, wildlife and beaches. Breakfast was amazing and our host and her menagerie of pets (both wild and tame) made for a great start to our day. Erica was very knowledgable about the area, tours and restaurants. The room was lovely, although the decor in... More

Cahuita is definitely a quirky town. The people are very friendly which coming from London was a nice surprise. Kelly Creek hotel was practicaly at the entrance to Cahuita national park. You couldn't get closer if you tried! The owner Erica is certainly eccentric but very nice and welcoming! The room was lovely and the home made jams at breakfast... More

We stayed three nights here and truly enjoyed our stay. The rooms are very large and beatiful and the mosquito netting over the beds was lovely and necessary. Steps from the beach and as close as you can get to the national park. Beautiful grounds with lots of interesting wildlife. And two friendly Persian cats wander around. The owner, Erica,... More

We spent 3 nights in Cahuita and stayed at Kelly Creek. The location was awesome, being right by the park and steps to the beach. Our room was very large with a beautiful view of the beach. The mosquito nets and open air windows with just shutters added a lovely touch to the room. I quite liked this. Tons of... More

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

We stayed at Kelly Creek Feb 16th for one night. The hotel is located on the edge of a mangrove separating the national park from town, a stones throw from Caribbean Sea. 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
