“Perfect perfect perfect”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 24, 2009

Chris and Joe really created a great place for their guests to enjoy the Carribean jungle feeling and nature - the bungalows are beautiful and offer a perfect and unique holiday experience. You immediately sense that you have arrived at a naturally grown place.
The tropical garden surrounds you, overwhelming with flowers, trees, birds and a lot of other animals - like our best friend, the sloth sleeping in the tree right in front of our bungalow. The breakfast is fabulous - with fresh fruits, lovely arranged for the eye,. and a fresh bread selection with cream cheese etc. - as a guest you are just grateful that the owners enjoy spoiling you and are naturally interested in every person staying in their beautiful property.
Cahuita is a cosy and laid-back place where you find good restaurants and nice reggae bars ;-) The environment offers a lot of possibilities to experience the nature, jungle, ocean, beaches, sloth rescue farms etc. :-)
Thanks to Chris and Joe for having been perfect hosts, we really enjoyed being with you. Take care of Lady, your sweet dog, the sweetest one in Costa Rica.

We recently spent our honeymoon in Cahuita at Coral Hill Bungalows, and we couldn't have been more pleased. Off the beaten path of town, Coral Hill is a nice, somewhat secluded spot that is great for couples looking to get away and spend some relaxing time together. Joe & Chris are excellent & helpful host, the breakfast is fresh & phenomenal, and the yard is full of beautiful plants and wildlife. Highly recommended!

My boyfriend and I had a wonderful stay at Coral Hill Bungalows. The owners, Chris and Joe were very friendly and super helpful. On one rainy day they directed us to the Sloth rescue farm up the road which was one of our favorite highlights of our trip to Costa Rica. The price was very reasonable for all of the amenities. You could certainly find much less expensive accommodations in the area but I would only recommend those for travelers that are more along the back packing set (not me) that prefer to leave the comforts of home at home. The breakfast was fantastic and Joe makes fantastic scrambled eggs.
If you don't rent a car I would recommend renting bikes (for a very nominal feel) in town. Also, the town of Cahuita is pretty dead after 9pm so I'd make it a point to get back to your place before then.

The bungalows are even better than they look in the pictures. No detail of luxury or comfort was overlooked. The location is a short walk to the beach and our favourite restaurant "Chaos Paradise". The service was impeccable; Joe and Chris were perfectly attentive and yet very unobtrusive. Breakfasts were delightful and the scenary was spectacular. The monkeys, sloth and abundance of butterflies gave us a wildlife sanctuary of our very own and the gardens just made you want to hang around rather than go out and explore. Chris is a master at organizing any activities or extras that need doing and Joe's enthusiasm for the location is infectious. We loved everything about our stay at Coral Hill Bungalows and can't wait to go back and say hi to "Lady".

Pura Vida began as soon as the gates to paradise opened. The warm and attentive hospitality of Joe, Chris and Lady made our stay a pure pleasure. The bungalow was beautiful, immaculately clean and comfortable. From our beautiful porch we felt as though we were in the middle of the "action" (monkey wars, sloths perched in the trees and birds calling). Chris and Joe were very helpful arranging activities-- waterfall trip and snorkeling-- and recommending the best places to eat. We loved returning to the bungalow each night and waking up there every morning to a beautiful and delicious breakfast served to us in this beautiful garden. We recommend Coral Hill Bungalows to any one who would like to experience what the Garden of Eden must have felt like. After a day at the beach, a hike in the beautiful National Park or after a day trip, Coral Hill was quiet and peaceful haven, tucked away from everything.

We stayed for 4 nights at Coral Hill and have only good things to say about the place. Chris and Joe are affable hosts, the breakfast are fantastic, the bungalows nice and comfortable. They will provide information, arrange for tours and transportation, make your stay more enjoyable. When you go out for lunch, try the Mandragora in Cahuita (across from Cabina Palmer) and for diner try Corleone.
