“best deal in Cahuita”
Reviewed March 17, 2014

We started at another place in town, but quickly wanted to leave and find something a little better. After checking out almost every place around, we stumbled upon Piscina Natural and were instantly hooked. As you enter the gates, you are met with a garden that just draws you in. As you wander through, you pass the big open air fully stocked kitchen eating area. This can really help cut down on costs and time wasted hunting for all you meals. The trail continues on to a natural lagoon and onto the lava water front with several hammocks hung under a huge tree. The rooms were clean and comfortable with fans, mozzy nets and are shaded by all the trees. The owners are very friendly and the lady is from north America and can help with all your needs. The black sand beach is only 5 min away, but the town is 30 min walk. They don't rent bikes, but you can get them in town if you don't have a car

An exceptional deal for $45

I was here with friends but I would love to come here for a romantic getaway. The room was simple and clean but the real charm is the grounds, gardens, and natural pools. Lots of sweet places to sit in the gardens or hanging in a hammock. The coral reef forms natural calm jungle pools to cool off in safely away from the pushy tide. Dreamy!
Patty was a very sweet and helpful host. We were able to use the kitchen to cook our own meals and the open air dining room is lovely.

Room Tip: I believe there are only 5 rooms, all in a line. They all seemed to be about the same in size, quali...

We enjoyed our stay at La Piscina Natural in Cahuita, CR, and wish we could have stayed longer.
The ancient coral reef has been eroded into fascinating fissures with a tidepool boasting a tiny secluded beach. We loved walking into the pulsing surf from the seclusion of the hideaway pools -- then floating out near (and with) the breakers in a completely safe piscina. Patty and Walter have dedicated their lives to their sweet garden -- with thrilling cacti and palms and succulents, tropical flowers, tiny frogs, even fluffy little chicks and some peacocks! Clearly, they
love the land! Our quarters were delightfully airy and clean, with access to an open-air kitchen.
La Piscina Natural is a tropical paradise!

Room Tip: Rooms on the corners have 2 windows.

My wife and I stayed here for six nights. Patty and Walter were wonderful hosts. They ensured we were comfortable and knew where to eat and what to see. The room had everything we needed The kitchen was well stocked and large. The eating area was very comfortable. Of course we loved having our morning coffee by the ocean. A great way to start and end the day! Swimming in the natural pool was relaxing.

We did not have a car and walked everywhere. We like to walk so the 15 minute walk to town was not a problem. A good portion of the walk to town is on playa negra.

We had a great stay and hope to come again!

On my month tour all around Costa Rica this place way my favorite stop.

Thank you so much Patty and Walter for having us in your own private paradise.
My party of four came here to relax and enjoy the beach in Cahuita in August. The tide pool really gives you a chance to enjoy the water without any worry of being sucked away by strong waves (like all the other beaches in Cahuita). Patty has a beautiful garden which peacocks room around and a couple of friendly dogs too. The hammocks under the trees near the ocean leave you to rock yourself to sleep listening to the waves.
The rooms were clean, and had bug nets (not that we needed them), and we had our own private bathroom with hot water.
Patty and Walter were extremely helpful and very knowledgeable about the area.
Thank you so much, we really appreciated everything.

Room Tip: There are only five rooms, and the one on the end which we stayed in had an extra window which was n...

Pros:
* Hostess is the most amazing person you'll ever have the pleasure to rent a room from. She's kind; helpful; and chock-full of local information, recommendations, and (if you've got the time and interest) stories of an inspiring life
* Natural swimming tidepool is unique and a sight to behold
* Abundant flora and fauna makes any trip around the grounds feel like a jungle adventure
* Ocean-view hammocks are an ideal place to retreat with a lover and/or good book
* A (nearly) endless supply of beers and wine for sale and the kitchen makes it so that you have the option to visit a local grocer once and stay secluded for a week at a time if that's your kind of thing
* Kept VERY clean and tidy

Cons:
* The three star rating for the rooms is because there's nothing really special about the rooms themselves AND the fact that there's no door separating the bathroom from the rest of the room. That being said, you will likely be spending very little time in the room itself due to the natural beauty all around Also, if you're staying by yourself, or are very comfortable with those you're staying with, the lack of a bathroom door should be of little issue.
* The four star rating for location is to point out the fact that it is a good twenty minute march from Cahuita. I found this to be endearing, but to each his/her own.

Nice little paradise, hamak on the beach (on the rocks, no beach there, no swim). Beaches are about 15minutes walk, black sand though (probably good for surf when swell), a car is a real plus, n it might be more secure too.
My only disappointment is the WiFi that exist but does not work anywhere and the guy doesn't really care (he seems really stone...), laundry was broken, and the water sink smells pretty bad.. Nobody tried to drink it. Beside that its a very nice little paradise for the price. I would still double check for future because we saw sign for 15$/night, or 30 with AC... As well the next town is really more pretty ! (Puerto viejo)
For 'good bakery' check border town 'Paris', and very good pizza and price at 'cuihita pizzeria'.

Room Tip: There is some with two single, some with double..
