I stayed at Cafe Playa Negra for a week in February and had a great time! Though it is off the beaten path a little bit the staff kept you plenty entertained and made me feel right at home. David, the bartender and Lula, Lula's Tours are very kind, helpful and FUN! If you are staying for more than 2 or 3 days I would recommend renting a car(Lula can help with that#. The beach is a short walk#10 minutes) and there are other restaurants even closer. When I return to Costa Rica I will know exactly where to stay! Thanks guys! Stephanie
What a great hotel,just perfect for the surroundings.Low key,everyone helpful and friendly,and the food was delicious.
“Disappointing at Cafe Playa Negra”
Man that welcomed us was not pleasant and a terrible first impression. They advertise free WiFi but know that you must sit at the router and you can not obtain access from your room or the lovely sitting area on top floor. Dogs bark throughout the night making it difficult to sleep at times. The worst part is that you can not flush toilet tissue down the toilet but must place the toilet tissue in a basket which can create a smell. Do not confuse Cafe Playa Negra with Hotel Playa Negra, Hotel Playa Negra is on the beach, owner extremely nice, better place to stay. The only asset for Cafe Playa Negra is a young man who I believe was Frederick, extremely helpful and pleasant.
