My husband and I stayed at the howler monkey hotel as part of our honey moon , we loved every single minute , the location was amazing, the relaxed vibe made only one thing hard and that was leaving! Jim the host is a gent , welcoming and engaging . I’m always one for new experiences but in this case it’s a ‘I want to do It again’ thing , hopefully sooner rather than later ... thanks for amazing memories Jim And we hope the jungle is treating you well !!!!!!

We stay in the howlermonkey hotel for a week ( which was only meant to be a night) during our honeymoon we loved it there and jimmy made us feel so welcome . We will definitely be back in the near future , such a beautiful place to chill out , and tons of things to do in the area , I would highly recommend a stay here ..
It is in the middle of nowhere- fine. We lounged around the beach all day watching the iguanas fight over mango peels-cool. It has a great pool. The cabins were a little odd. They are very rustic, the beds were comfortable, nice deck on front of cabin the down side is that the kitchen and bathroom are on the ground floor while bedroom is on the 2nd floor and the stairs are outside. So as an old guy I have to get up in the middle of the night and trek outside to the bathroom in the middle of the night (do I get dressed or sneak down in my underwear-You don’t want to know). My main dissatisfaction with the place is that the showers were absolutely cold! The instantaneous electric showerhead (boy are they scary, I had current past through my body in Mexico when using one of these as I stepped on the metal drain cover) produced no hot water whatsoever. Cabins are close together and afford little privacy. If taking the ferry to get here give yourself ample time at the ferry dock. It's a cluster. If someone wants instructions on how to not miss the ferry drop me a question I'd be happy to help. We missed the 3:00 o'clock ferry and ended up on the 5:00 o'clock. That had us driving to the Howler in the dark. Very dangerous. Narrow,curvy poorly marked road!…
We stayed for 1 week with our family of four (including 2 young kids) and had a great time. Our cabina was clean and had all necessary amenities. The kids loved the pool and all the wildlife that would come through on a daily basis, including howling monkeys, capuchin monkeys, iguanas and lots of pretty birds. There are also ocean kayaks that are free to use. Jim, the owner, and the other people helping out were friendly and helpful. There was a nice pizza/bar place right around the corner that had great live music one of the nights we were there. There is also a market and an amazing bakery/restaurant in walking distance.
I stayed at The Howler Monkey Hotel for a week- the plan was only to stay 3 nights, but it was that wonderful. Beautiful cabinas, very quiet, with a nice pool, AND right on the beach ☺️ And not to forget Jim, the owner- you can ask him for anything you need, and he’s a very kind wonderful host! I couldn’t have asked for anything more. The nature is amazing- it really lives up to the name Howler Monkey hotel! I will definitely be back, and highly recommend this hotel. 💜☀️
