Yes these reviews are getting monotonous but they are true - a 5 star experience for a 3 star price! Lush, well maintained grounds, thoughtfully planned accommodation, spotless rooms...relaxed but helpful owners and staff. The sound of birdsong in the morning was lovely and the sound of the local howler monkey hauntingly beautiful. Then there is the constant background music...

My wife and I stayed three nights at Playa Negra Guesthouse in September '11. We arrived in the dark, a few days early, tired from a long day of driving. The wonderful hosts could not be more welcoming. We stayed in the single room and it was large, very clean and perfect! Not much to say that hasn't been said...

I hate to even write this review and have everyone else flocking here but really, it was great! Extra added bonus for me of two lovely dogs who mirrored the, as another reviewer said "friendly but nonintrusive", attitude of the owners. We are casual birders and saw at least half of the birds we counted on the beautifully maintained grounds...

I loved this guesthouse. It was very healing. The beach is right across the dirt road. Thank you Greg & Michael for a great stay and welcome to CR. Thanks for sharing your dogs with me too! They're awesome. The rooms are huge. I stayed in a single and it was quite comfortable. It has a really nice porch too....

This is truly one of the nicest places we ever stayed in. The charm of this place is in the details. Everything is thought off carefully- from the multiple towels to the location of the room which gives you the privacy and the seclusion that a couple (or family) would desire. It also has a nice pool in the center...

This is a very quiet place at a good price. The grounds are lovely and the place is clean and well kept. It is very secure. You can park your car in a locked area and come and go with a key. We traveled with a surf board, it was very convenient to not have to load and unload each...

Most things already have have been written in the predecing comments about this great place. We had a nice and relaxing stay and we never saw a nicer garden. It's full of exotic plants and flowers. The place is clean and offers a great value for the money. But the most important thing: the staff is really nice and helpful....

Nach unserer Low Budget Rundreise und einigen unangenehmen Erfahrungen in CR, haben wir uns für die letzten 5 Tage das PN guesthouse rausgesucht. Die Zeit dort war wirklich traumhaft.
