The Monkey Hut
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed August 12, 2010

The Monkey Hut is a beautiful hostel tht shares the Apoyo lagoon with only a handful of other hotels. It has excellent access to kyacks and tubes however the problem is that they allow too many people to stay at the hostel regardless if they have rooms/beds or not. In addition, they allow people to come and stay for the day which makes it difficult to use any of the water toys, get a chair, etc. They also ran out of food while I was there which was difficult as it is a fairly isolated and there is only one tiny hut selling snacks. Your better bet would be to go down the road to Crater's Edge where they have the same view, and include breakfast in their price. When Crater's Edge is full, they admit it (which is why I ended up at the Monkey Hut).

Reviewed June 6, 2010

The monkey huts location and building are fantastic. Its right on the side of the volanic lake has its own beach with free kayaks and inner tubes and is very quiet. The private rooms were basic but nice. The annoying thing is that all rooms had air conditioning but they had been disconnected and only fans were available. The guy running the place is really nice but could do without shouting and signing at 7 am every morning. Thin walls!!

The big bug bare with this place was the prices. The rate on its website was wrong it was more $ 29 per night oh but yes there was more it was the only place that failled to include the 15% tax which was then added on. The food is really good and the pizza is great but at $10 per pizza was vastly over priced. The beers were 25% more expensive than anywhere else due to its remote location !!
