We, a german couple, stayed there for 2 days. It is a really nice, clean and quiet place - with a lot of nice details (free coffee, free bikes, hammocks..) and a very very friendly owner couple. Absolutely recommendable!! Puneh&Timo

We had five very good days there. The buildings are pretty, and as we had to switch rooms several times due to the place being quite busy, we used four rooms (we had separate room from our teens) which were all pretty and clean, with mosquito nets, and comfy bedding and (at least access to) a coffee machine (free coffee)...

Lovely place to stay. Owners are very helpful and give good advice on activities. We had a room with an outdoor kitchen and dining it was lovely to cook our own food after 2 weeks of eating out. Accommodation spotless and very good housekeeping service, free coffee provided. Free use of bikes which was really helpful. Only negative was that...

I’m writing this review so that everyone looking for a Hotel in Cahuita is aware that there are 2 places side by side with almost the same name. As I arrived in Cahuita, I’ve heard from local people that the owners from Hotel Nirvana by the Sea, after administrating the now Cabinas Nirvana Ecologe under the name of Cabinas Nirvana...

Our visit to this locally owned hotel was one of the best parts of our trip. I can't rave enough about the level of service and hospitality we received. My husband and I arrived at the Cahuita bus station without a clue as to where the hotel was- the owner was in the area and nice enough to pick us...

First of all: make sure to book the right accomodation because there are 2 places in Cahuita with a similar name but only one of them is the real Nirvana! We didn't had any issues because of that but we heard of other travellers being dissapointed when realising that they went to the wrong place. The Nirvana where we have...

I spent 4,5 wonderful days at Cabinas Nirvana with my friend. Originally we booked three nights - but luckily we could add two more nights because we fell in love with the place. Amazing ambiance! We arrived with a hired car - it was important to have a safe parking area (in the garden). Highly recommended for everyone searching for...

We have just had the most relaxing and beautiful stay at this place. The location is excellent, minutes from the beach with a few chilled out beach bars too. The National Park is 20 minutes walk away, but the walk is mainly along the sea front. The property itself is just perfect if you're looking to chill out for a...
