We found Casa Cecilia by walking the beach and we were lucky there was a cancellation, so we could stay for 5 nights. This B&B is a perfect mix between a hotel and a hostel. It gives you the social contacts you normally have in hostel, but the comfort of an hotel, including nice breakfast. The location is outstanding: one... More

I stayed at Casa Cecilia for 8 nights on my own just after Christmas. This property offers everything you would want for a relaxing and amazing holiday. I stayed in the villa just behind the main building and it was fantastic. Clean and open with an outdoor full kitchen and shower nestled in the forest. It was just steps away... More

My mom and I went to Costa Rica and Panama for about three weeks, and this was our favorite town/place to stay during our entire trip. The manager was very friendly and helpful, and the hotel was in a perfect location - right on the beach and just out of the main town. There was great surfing and delicious breakfast... More

Casa Cecilia was the perfect place for my girlfriend and I to spend our first Costa Rica vacation. Don and staff could not have provided a better stay for us, and we already can not wait to get back and spend our next trip there. STAY HERE!

This is a bed and breakfast. We live in costa Rica and we'll definitely come back. The view is amazing; right on one of the prettiest beaches in C.R., and to add to that, it's in an uncrowded area. Lots of hammocks and chairs to relax in. Lots of beautiful shade trees if you need the shade. Clear, clean water... More

A beautiful place right on the beach, slightly outside of town (which we wanted). We rented Casa Cassandra (full kitchen - perfect for a a family) and one of the rooms for 3 nights. It was almost a private beach- lots of shade trees and hammocks. The waves were really fun for boogie boards - even better for surfers. Well... More

I have just returned to the states from a 9 day "surf get-away" with the girlfriend at casa cecilia. We scored great waves every single day. The room we stayed in was big enough for all our luggage and boards, was very comfortable and decorated nicely. Everything about the room was perfect, even the water from the shower had nice...

I recently returned from a romantic stay at Casa Cassandra--the house to the rear of Casa Cecilia. The place was absolutely gorgeous and has its own private beach right out front! We had the place to ourselves for most of our stay, which was amazing, but the other guests that did arrive were all friendly and we still had privacy... More
