Oh man where do I begin! This place was so awesome it is hard to give it justice in writing, but here it goes. The grounds where like a tropical paradise. Lush, green, super clean, and full of life. Iguana, sloths, and poison dart frogs in the the tress and bushes gave it a true jungle feel. The pool was... More

Awesome! I know this word is overused, but this place definitely deserves it. My family (myself, my wife, and our two kids ages 6 and 8) stayed in many nice hotels, b and b's, hostels, guesthouses, etc. throughout our 7 week trip to Central America, but this place was the best! I'm glad that we stayed here last because we... More

The Hotel is located in front of a beautiful dark sand beach. From our little bungalow we could hear the ocean. The room was always clean, with a full equipped kitchen, fridge, coffee maker: everything you need. There is a pool and common area for the guests. The owner surprise us with coffee bag for breakfast when we check in:... More

Maryse and her husband Pierre were very welcoming hosts. The Hotel is fully in the middle of a tropical garden, right next to the sea. The room was clean, spatious and nicely decorated. We very much appreciated to have the first coffee of the day on our room terrasse and we loved that they provided beach towels. Pierre took us... More

I stayed in the yellow cottage for two nights. This cottage has a beautiful front porch equipped with furniture to eat breakfast, 2 rooms (one with a double bed and the other with 2 single beds), a fully equipped kitchen, and a bathroom with a full shoer and jacuzzi tub. All of this for only $100 a night! Besides just... More

I'm on a study abroad trip in Costa Rica this summer for two months and this was our third week traveling on the weekends. The Playa Negra Guesthouse was by far the nicest hotel/hostel I've been at in Costa Rica or anywhere else. Its landscape and atmosphere are absolutely stunning. It's located about 50 feet from a beach so it's... More

We rented the Yellow Cottage, which was as lovely as it looks in the photos. Birds and wildlife right in the area are amazing, but the real stand-out of this place is Pierre, the co-owner, who is an avid--and amazing--naturalist. He led us on a hike in the nearby Cahuita park that was just incredible--we saw animals and critters that... More

My two friends and I, (three women all 50+ years) spent a fantastic week at the Playa Negra Guesthouse in Cahuita, Costa Rica. The cottage that we stayed in was just as advertised; spacious, well kept, set in a beautiful garden, with privacy and quiet environment. Our hoses, Maryse and Pierre couldn't have been more helpful. Pierre took us on... More

Marise and Pierre are an amazing couple and some of the best hosts we have ever had the opportunity to stay with. From the moment we arrive Marise met us with an umbrella and offered us an early morning guided tour with Pierre. We excitedly said yes and could not have had a better time. He has an eagle eye...

We decide 4 friends ( me and another from Portugal, one from Brasil and finally the last from Brasil), to spent a week-end in Costa Rica, coming from Mexico, knowing that was very short. A friend recommended to contact, Pierre and Marise, the owners of the guesthouse Playa Negra to have their advice. You can not believe how this couple... More
