“laid back at Kelly Creek”
Reviewed August 13, 2006

I just returned from a weekend trip to Cahuita and I had to write about Kelly Creek Hotel where I along with three friends stayed. The rooms were very spacious and clean, with nice ventilation, and a nice size bathroom (The shower was huge).
The owner was very hospitable and accomodated all of our needs.
The location of the hotel is right at the entrance to the national park, so we had the advantage of watching the Sea right from the porch.
When I return to Cahuita I will definitely book a room at Kelly Creek Hotel again. The experience was excellent.

the owners were away and we were hosted by Ron and Melanie who were just delightful. Beware the parrot who only likes women or so it seem , he's prone to latching on to your foot and laughs heartily at you. THe rooms work well and your right at the entrance to Cahuita National Park --- donations excepted. best burger in town is at Coral Creek, Best dinner is near black beach ask at Ron and Marcos place 'sobas los holas'
Check out the next park Puerto Vargas --- even better beaches and it's more remote!

We stayed at the Kelly Creek Inn (I with 4 friends) during the first week of March. It was excellent in every way! The price was incredibly reasonable $40.per night?, and the hosts/owners were wonderfully hospitable, and informative about anything we wanted to do. They also make an excellent Paia!! The location couldn't be beat either...its right on the beach...at the entrance to the Cahuita Nat'l Park. There is a path that goes through the jungle, parallel to the beach where you can see monkeys, sloths, and birds. The rooms are very large as well with 2 large beds per room with mosquito netting around them, with a bathroom in each room!

I can't say enough about the wonderful trip we had, the gracious owners who made us feel at home...(and allowed me to practice my poor french with them!). Its the best deal in that part of Costa Rica, and in one of the most beautiful parts of the island (carribean side!). Clear Blue waters...reefs..white/black sand beaches. What more could you want?

We stayed at this hotel for one night in January. It is at the south end of the town, right near the entry to the park. The rooms are large and clean, the owners are friendly and the breakfasts (particularly the coffee) are great. There are two friendly dogs and a parrot whose laughter is guaranteed to make you laugh back. The hotel is apparently always full (only 4 rooms) so be sure to reserve.
