Just to mirror a number of the reviews here, considering how quaint and intimate this little Inn is, you'd expect a little warmth from the host. The owner was not rude, but very cold. It's hard to describe, but someone was dead on when they said that she seems more concerned with taking care of her dogs, bird and horse than she does with her guests. Obviously, it's up to the hotel whether they want to serve a full breakfast or not, but we stayed in 5 different hotels in Costa Rica, all of which were less considerably less than this one, and Megellan was the only one that did not provide a real breakfast. Additionally, that fact was unclear to us, so when we went to breakfast, we just waited not wanting to be rude. After about 30 mins of nibbling at our bread and butter, it became apparent that if we wanted something more we would have to order it.
We took a room with TV and AC for our stay, making the room $135/night. While we enjoyed our stay, this price was definitely not worth it. AC was lovely, and we just wanted to relax so TV was also nice, but not nice enough for the price. The room was clean. Like someone said, the king bed was really 2 twins, but this didn't bother us. What did bother us was that the shower was no curtains so it really is almost impossible to keep the bathroom from being soaking wet.
The beach is a short walk, but that part of the beach is very rocky. There is a nicer beach in town, but it's a long walk in the hot sun.
Next time we're in Cahuita, we'll try another hotel out.
