An abundance of wildlife keeps this flawlessly run b&b an exciting and truly relaxing experience. We saw three different species of monkeys, countless birds & iguanas etc. Great location, and amazing staff whom went so much further than the extra mile to make our 5 night stay unforgettable - thank you Chris & your team.

Short walk to the beach was great! Suite was spacious for family of 5. Knowledgeable staff and the family enjoyed their restaurant recommendations (Emilio's Cafe and Sol). Breakfast was simple but good and got the day started right. Kids enjoyed the house cat.

Nice sized room with AC, TV, WIFI and bathroom. Nice, helpful staff. Small pool and tables to have simple breakfast. Free parking. Yes the howler monkeys are a bit loud sometimes and there are flies at breakfast but you know you are on the edge of the jungle and there were not many real pests like mosquitos. Short walk to...

The breakfast staff was very pleasant and helpful but the flies were insane! You have to eat very quickly so as not to be too disgusted about how many swarm around your plate. Would fans help? All guests at our breakfast had same comments. Hotel cat was a darling and would let itself into our room expectantly when we returned.... More

We stayed here for four nights and we rather enjoyed it. It was a bit expensive; however, it was conveniently located directly across from the beach. The staff was great. They also have a wonderful cat (Miso) who might be the friendliest feline ever. My only gripe with this place is that the beds get really damp when it rains.... More

I got into town way before my check-in. I was able to leave my bags in the office and go hang out in the pool or wander around. About 2pm I checked back and my room was available. All I wanted to do was take a shower and then take a nap. I woke a little while later to the... More

Great hotel location, with quick access to the beach, choice of dozens of restaurants & minutes from the national park. We stayed for 3 days at the Jungle Beach Hotel which is situated amongst the trees, and allows easy viewing of the monkeys, sloths, birds etc. Rooms are clean and comfortable and staff were very helpful and friendly.

Accommodations are not 5 star, but you already knew that if you booked and paid for this hotel. Its perfect for a family as it is literally a 3 minute walk to the beach and 5 min car ride to the National Park. The added bonus of the pool and free breakfast make this place ideal for families. Pura Vida!!!
