Got to the place and Brigitte had forgotten we had booked. Not a good start. Got a cabin to stay in. When we got back at night the key didn't work. Woke up Brigitte. She got mad because we were waking her guests. Oh well, we were guests too. Albeit forgotten... She came with us to the cabin and struggled... More

We stayed there for 2 nights. The room was clean and cheap. Brigitte is a really Nice hostess. She planned our activities and dropped us back at the bus station. Horse riding on the beach was amazing , horses are healthy and well trained. Snorkeling was a lot of fun, we saw beautiful fishes and a big reef shark. Really... More

Brigitte and their staff was very lovely and helpful. I really liked their pancakes breakfast! The place is a little bit outside of town (I really like this because it is more quiet). But there are restaurants and a little shop very near. The place is very near to the black beach to relax and have a swim. If you... More

This place is an absolute treasure for travelers seeking the basic comforts - cozy accommodation to sleep/rest, healthy breakfast, courteous and friendly staff with a smile on their faces and ready to help. Brigitte is a sweet lady and has many great stories to share...she's lived there for 36 years, so knows the place like the back of her hand.... More

Brigitte is really sweet and caring. We were 3 and had a cabina and loved it : it was super clean and lovely! It was private but at the same time really close to the center! I reccommend it to anyone!

A friend and I stayed in the family cabinas for four nights, with a little kitchen, two double beds and a bathroom. We had a little terrace and two hammocks. Clean and simple, great breakfast (banana pancakes!!) good location 1 minute from the beach and a 15-20 mins walk to town. Brigitte is friendly and comforting, I would highly recommend... More

This place has all the bases covered. Cabins for rent, horseback riding and tours, breakfast café. Didn't stay here, but we absolutely LOVED their breakfast! You must try the banana pancakes(comes with fresh fruit salad-taken right off the trees). Also, the scrambled egg with Gallo pinto. Very busy place-always a good sign. Brgitte's sister has a laundry service which we... More

What a gem we found! As backpackers we hopped off the bus in Cahuita and had no idea where we were staying. We walked along the main street and decided that we wanted to stay near the beaches instead of in town. Although it was a very sweaty adventure, we're so glad we kept exploring the roads along the beach... More

Our 8 year old son Leonardo said, "Here time is slow and very quiet, and the night is long It can sleep and rest a lot.." And indeed it is. The lodge is just Briggitte special. You are just steps from the beach, very quiet and many books. And the staff Briggitte treatment is unique and very, very cordial. Any... More

We did not stay in Brigitte's hostel, but booked a horseback riding tour with her for $50. The tour took about 3 hours and was amazing, we did not only ride on the beach, but also passed through the jungle with the horses. Our guide, Raul, was really friendly. Brigitte was too sweet. The horseback riding tour would normally have... More
