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

I almost feel like I should keep this place a secret but it deserves a review. My boyfriend and I visited Kelly Creek it mid July 2013 during our trip around Costa Rica and liked it so much we later return for another night. It’s got so much charm and character! It’s located among lush greenery, literally on the doorstep... More

We stayed here for two nights and it sits right on the beach. When you arrive your greeted by the owner and his adorable dogs. The rooms are very clean with a mosquito net to cover you at night because the windows do not have glass. At night you can hear the monkeys howling and among other animals wandering outside... More

My teenager and I spent 3 nights in Cahuita, staying at Kelly Creek. Our room was very large and comfortable, tidied up every day by the housekeeper. Right on the property we saw, and heard, Howler Monkeys, crocodiles and the resident talking parrot and lovely dogs. Cahuita is perfect for a slow paced, beach focused rest. The National Park was...

I enjoyed this hotel so much we went back to stay a second time. The rooms are spacious and the couple that owns the property are very interesting to talk to. The location is also unbeatable if you want to stay in Cahuita.

Kelly Creek is situated right at the entrance of the National Park and it's beach, Playa Blanca. You are only a few steps away. Kelly Creek smartly provides free beach towels. The hotel has an "Out of Africa"-look and feel. It is quite spacious; at first glance you would expect a lot more than the four rooms they have. The... More
