This place is awesome! The grounds are gorgeous - so many animals sloths, frogs, iguanas) and plants/trees to see. Beautiful clean pool. Nice covered terraces. Secure. Parking area. Right across from beach. Close to bars/restaurants/town of Cahuita. Hosts are very helpful. Rooms are clean and have coffee pots, a few dishes, fridge, etc. Absolute only critique is the hard mattress. Beautiful place!

Beautiful location with excellent gardens and amenities. Our stay with our two children was wonderful, the owners demonstrated great care and hospitality towards us at all times. It was a delightful stay and we were made most welcome. The pool was excellent and the air conditioning in the room was a great plus. The room was very well presented, clean and it was great to be able to have the option of the use of the kitchen facilities in the room also. It felt secluded and full of beautiful wildlife to spot. We would like to highly recommend the guesthouse and we look forward to our next visit there again soon.

The best of all bungalow stations. Beautiful garden with a pool. The blue cotage is very large and offers everything you need. The owners are very friendly and helpful. The perfect place in Cahuita on the Black Beach.

Best trip of my life the playa negra guesthouse is amazing. Beach in-front of the site, sloths right there on the beach, black sand absolutely beautiful. I saw many animals right on site. Beautiful houses and rooms, very clean. Owners are amazing, very helpful and know the area. If you want to know the best activities and restaurants they will happily give you all the information. Planning on going back for two weeks with the kids. Pura vida!

Right across the road from beautiful Playa Negra, easy walk to several beautiful beaches and restaurants, Most gracious hostess in all of Costa Rica. Gave us late checkout time by storing our luggage and inviting us to use the pool & bar fridge for the 4 hours before our shuttle picked us up. Beautiful pool and lovely gardens with a variety of wildlife to see at anytime.
