My friend found and booked this accomodation thru bookings.com. We had the cottage on the Seaside frontage. The location was breathtaking. I slept soundly to the sound of the sea. The friendly staff served all drinks and meals by the seaside tables. Wi-Fi was available in the cafe by the road which at times was noisy but hey we're on... More

This accomodation was a true delight from the congenial and efficient staff to the picturesque , comfortable and beautifully appointed rooms available. The splendid, basic but very comfortable rooms were only exceeded by the gorgeous views of the ocean all set in a tropical paradise overseen by our lovely hostess/manager. The food served in the restaurant and the art work... More

We wanted to try a destination "off the beaten track" so we came to Candidasa for a budget version start of our honeymoon in October 2005 (!). Even if we weren't willing to pay that much we were a bit surprised that no effort was made from the hotel's side for the fact that it was a honeymoon. The only... More

Thank you for your review. We provide insect spray in bathroom as we are in the tropics. The garden bathroom has a clear roof to stop creatures from coming in but let light in for the plants. Had you informed us that the sound of waves were distressing we would have done our best to change cottages. We have never... More

Just like what it says, Temple Cafe and Seaside Cafe....Temple : peaceful, serene, blissful, clean and silent except for the sound of waves (Seaside) hitting the shores could be heard and experienced at nights...just spiritual sound of nature versus man made hazardous noise of traffic....A must stay.....Very friendly staff and warm ... Simply Peaceful....

There is a lovely garden, beauty salon with a expirenced haardresser and a shop with special dresses.The owner is an Australien lady, who speaks german too. I really recommend this place.

The budget bungalows are basic but comfortable and good value. The grounds are well maintained and it's nice and peaceful sitting looking out at the sea. It's not really a swimming beach, though. The info in the room says it's safe to swim but we didn't and didn't see anyone else swimming. The restaurant is right on the road, so... More

The first time we stayed here and first time visiting Candidasa. Having only been to the popular surf spots previously this was a nice change and left us with a great experience of Candidasa all in all. We really rate the The Temple Cafe as great accommodation. The bungalows are just so charming, like little temples, simple, clean and tidy... More
