A must stay place!!
If we could give this place a higher score, we would. Extremely polite owners and staff that have created an absolute paradise within an already existing paradise of Cahuita in Costa Rica. The country is truly beatiful and we had plans to hop around accommodations, but that all changed once we came to Playa Negra Guesthouse. What was intended as a two night stay, we immediately booked to stay an additional two nights longer. Just the wildlife alone within the property grounds are amazing, thriving and abundant and the owners go the extra mile to show you where all the critters and wildife are hiding if you have trouble spotting them. The hospitality of the owners is bar none and we look forward to staying there again another few nights on our return back up from the south side. You want peace and tranquility in paradise, look no further!

Super séjour
Super beau site avec grands jardins avec des singes hurleurs, paresseux, iguanes et grenouilles. On a apprécié la petite cuisinette et la terrasse pour nos petits-déjeuners. Directement devant la playa Negra. Nous avons eu un super accueil par Annie et de bons conseils pour les visites à faire par Marise et Pierre

Book it, literally just do it, it is the place to stay. Couldn’t be more beautiful, the owners couldn’t be more helpful. Just all around wonderful. Literally a stay in a well maintained jungle like property, couldn’t get any better! The pool was amazing and much needed after walks in the jungle!

Loved everything about Playa Negra. Beautiful, magical garden and pool. Meticulously clean and comfortable room, with a veranda. We could hear ocean waves and howler monkeys in the morning. Great walkable proximity to National Park and multiple restaurants. The owners are incredibly helpful, kind and knowledgeable. We stayed 6 nights and hated to leave.

This is our absolutely favorite place in Costa Rica so far. We have been traveling for 2 weeks, still a week to go, and this location has everything! We are staying here 3 nights. Beautiful gardens, animals, excellent owners and staff, safe and secure. It has a pool and right across from the Caribbean Sea. It is a short walk to Cahuita. We will definitely come back.

It had everything I needed and was located close to everything (beach is right across the road, food all within walking distance). The room was comfortable. Marise was incredibly helpful, but not overbearing. I will definitely be back.
