Great place and experience...

Posted Apr 20, 2017
...particularly if you want to avoid traditional touristy. No AC but you acclimate. On the edge of the rainforest by the ocean. Beautiful.

Rainforest feel on the beach

Posted Apr 9, 2017
Pros: Rainforest-feel, not over-crowded, private and out-of-the-way with a nice beachfront location
Cons: Air conditioning would have made the stay much more pleasant.
Location: The beach was right across the small road from the hotel. A couple restaurants were within a 5 minute walk
We enjoyed our stay here. The breakfasts were delicious and cooked to order. The location was great. It had a rainforest feel while still being on the beach. Their "gym equipment" on the beach was also very creative. The pool was also very nice. The room was a good size but it was very hot due to no air conditioning. The staff was very friendly and helpful. They even waved us goodbye as we were driving to our next destination. All in all, a fun tropical experience.

Wildlife Unlimited

Posted Mar 5, 2017 on Hotels
What a place, perfect location for seeing the real Costa Rica wildlife, from Howling Monkeys, Iguanas, sloths, poison dart frogs and birds. Steven and Lauren really looked after my wife and I. They looked after all our needs. The Lodge was perfect, just what we wanted, in the jungle and next to the Black Sands beach. The locals were all friendly and the small town of Cahuita was only a 15 minute walk away and next to the National Park. The Lodge was well ran by Steven and all his staff. A beautiful place. Many thanks to Steven and Lauren.

Jungle Carribean hotel across from beach

Posted Jan 23, 2017
Beautiful place. Highly recommended. Easy walking distance to beach, national park, downtown restaurants. Small irritations: no hair dryer, breakfast a bit skimpy.

Top hotel experience in Cahuita

Posted Jan 8, 2017 on Hotels
The owners were especially attentionate to details and helpful beyond expectations. They made our trip unforgettable due to the impeccable service and recommendations. The place is great for couples or family's looking for both a beach and wild life adventure. There is a private outdoor workout gym, cozy pool and DJ area for WatchKit the sunset while having a 5 a7 very European by the beach. I highly recommend this hotel in Cahuita.

Good Hotel at Cahuita area

Posted Jan 2, 2017 on Hotels
We spent a couple nights with my family at end of the year. The property is somehow impacted by the humid weather that is normal at the Caribbean area so is not a surprise but normal that you will have sign of this everywhere but at the same time is the reason all the surrounding areas are so green, fresh and beautiful. So just keep in mind that it's not a fancy resort but a comfortable enough, clean and safe place to stay while you are around Cahuita and south Caribbean Costa Rica. The manager Steve Harvey and all the hotel staff is super friendly and always ready to assist your needs. Refreshing and cristal clear water at the swimming pool, just 100mts walking and you will be at the Playa Negra beach. Finally we're a little picky choosing food and outside you can find many options, from basic, good, very good and also bad choices... however we did try dinner at the Hotel the first night and realized they serve just a few different alternatives every day. We were a party of 4 and took most of the options. The Marlin, Chicken an shrimps, OMG soooo gooood, all was juicy and tasty, also very affordable. So if you are open minded and understand the expectations at the area for sure you will love it :)

Great, well run place

Posted Dec 31, 2016
Pros: Steve, the manager, was the nicest, most helpful guy you could meet. Can't say enough good things about him.
We wanted a quiet, laid-back vacation spot...........this was perfect. The place is well kept with a friendly, helpful staff . The pool was beautiful. The dining areas were really nice and the food was very good. The menu was varied.....from Marlin to BBQ to Pizza to a special holiday dinner. Housekeeping was great and our room was always spotless. The gardens are beautiful and wildlife passes through at will. At all times, we felt safe and the lodge has good security. Situated across the road from a long black sand beach and about one kilometer from town. Tours can be booked in town with pickups at the lodge. Would definitely recommend the Pacuare river rafting trip. Cahuita is a small town with many restaurants and bars. Cahuita National Park is a must for beauty and nature.

No show

I had to cancel the reservation with the hotel and they were very sympathetic and helpful during this time. They did not charge a fee for cancelling, despite what Expedia said. I had a great experience with the staff and I highly recommend them!!

Close to beach in natural surroundings

Posted Nov 25, 2016 on Orbitz
The father and son duo who manage the hotel are very helpful and go out of the way to keep you happy. The hotel itself is 100 metres from beach in natural surroundings . The breakfast is good but not buffet and is clearly not enough and you have to ask if you want more. I request the owners to keep bread /toast in buffet style. Good pool which is clean. There are different types of frogs near the pool which the owner showed us in the night and that was the best part of the trip.

Ideal for family getaway close to National park

Posted Nov 21, 2016
We had a great stay here with my boyfriend. The place is right next to the beach, the village and Cahuita national park is walking distance as well. The room is very nice comfy and clean, ideal place for a family getaway with small children. They offer breakfast and dinner but those are not included in the room price. There is a nice garden and a pool where you can cool off after a long hiking day. There was a nice concert, we enjoyed it very much. Unfortunately the internet did not work so the receptionist had a hard time to find our reservation and we were lacking internet access in our room.
