“Fabulous stay at Casa Del Mango over Christmas 2013!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 2, 2014

Casa Del Mango is a fabulous get-away litererally steps from a beautiful Costa Rican beach, walking distance from the Cahuita town center and National Park. It's also easily located for various day-trips to beaches, other towns, jungle adventures, snorkling, etc. Not to mention, the gorgeous pool on the property made it hard to leave and is the perfect place to hang out for a lazy day of lounging.

Sara, Nando and the entire Casa Del Mango family were wonderful during our stay, providing advice, making sure we had everything we needed for a comfortable stay, and even hung up Christmas lights to make us feel more at home during our visit over the holidays!

The house is very secure, in a great location and is a wonderful adventure for various groups or individuals looking to get away to the Caribbean coast of Costa Rica!

my partner and i stayed at "la casa del mango" for six nights (we just got back home last night!). it was a perfect location in town, close to things but quiet. a short walk from the cahuita national park, and a short drive to all kinds of fun activities on the caribe coast. we went to the sloth sanctuary, bocas del toro, panama, the beautiful parks, got amazing massages a block away, neighborhood restaurants, peurto viejo (which is a lively beach town)- there was also yoga offered in town numerous times per week. the town is quiet, and calm but has plenty of things to do.

the house itself was immaculate. clean, beautiful. even more gorgeous than the pictures. with helpful staff (especially manuel, we loved him). all of the staff was warm, welcoming, helpful- we even hung out with sara and nando's kids, and felt like a part of the family. fyi-- they don't live/stay on site, they just come during the day to make sure we are ok! so nice! we got up every morning and made breakfast and had our coffee outside where there was no shortage of wildlife. we saw iguanas, hummingbirds and all kinds of other creatures right outside our door/window. we had the house all to ourselves, so it's hard to say what it might be like if we'd had to share the facilities with strangers, but this would be a great house to rent with a group of friends or family. there was plenty of space! it was hot though. this is the Caribbean, so that is to be expected. we spent most of our days by the pool, and by bed time, things cooled down quite a bit-- overnight, we always ended up reaching for a blanket. we were on the top floor, in the room with the see-through bathroom ceiling. pro-tip: don't leave your makeup/toiletries there all day, or you'll come home to melted lipstick and very hot lotion!

it was a great stay, we were very sad to leave, and i would definitely recommend this place to friends. i'm already trying to arrange another trip! thanks to the casa del mango family for an awesome stay!

We just got back from a stay at Casa del Mango. It is situated off the beaten path, but a short 15 - 20 minute walk from downtown Cahuita. There are a couple restaurants about 5 minutes away. We didn't have a car and didn't really feel one was necessary. Sarah and Nando were great hosts. We enjoyed meeting the whole family including Nando's sister who came down from Limon to cook a fantastic meal for us. We awoke each morning with sounds fom the rainforest such as treefrogs, birds, and howler monkeys. There is a rooftop viewing area that had a wonderful view of the surrounding area. I would definitely stay here again.

Sherry's cooking was a real treat for us also!
Each morning we awoke to the unique sounds of the rainforest animals.
Nando and his family were friendly and always helpful.
Quite a few good eating spots were in town.
We had a full kitchen to use.

Stumbled upon this place while hunting for a place to stay in Cahuita as lonely planet had led us astray. It is perfect for a group that knows each other but would be a bit cramped if others were staying there. Staff was excelant, spoke good English and were helpful. Pool was amazing, property was extremely close to Playa Negra (not the cleanest beach I have ever seen). Rooftop balconies were perfect for stargazing, morning yoga, and we were able to spot the Sloth in the giant mango tree. Place was in need of some repairs and not the cleanest, all in all it is the best we found in Cahuita.

Thanks for your excellent review. I am very pleased to read how much you enjoyed the hotel but disappointed to see your comments about cleanliness. We strive to maintain the highest standards and are currently repairing the wooden fence and sun damaged wood upstairs. I hope the next time you visit we will rate 5 out of 5 in all areas!

Loved this house. Unique, beautiful, clean, had a great time. The caretakers were friendly and available for anything we needed. The pool was so relaxing! Enjoyed the privacy of the property, and the gorgeous gardens. Honestly, I didn't want to leave.

Just a couple things to keep in mind: You'll need to be able to climb at least one flight of stairs to get to your room. Also, rooms are not soundproof, so be aware that the noises you make can be heard throughout the house. And you'll be woken with the birds at sunrise! But these things did not affect my high opinion of the house. Well worth the stay!!

The place is beautiful, clean and highly maintained.
We were alone here and just felt like home to us (certainly a home we would like for ourselves :) )
The kitchen is fully equipped and there are plenty of dinning areas to sit down and enjoy your meal - by the kitchen, by the pool, on the rooftop, in the terrace or the garden.
Also, the pool is great and was hard to get out of! Great place to cool down when it's to hot to do anything.
The manager, who spoke english fluently, was very friendly and happy to answer all our questions and requests.

So far this is the best place we stayed in costa rica, I find it hard to believe this will be topped.
