This place close to the playa grande is claiming to have own sloth, we could also see there toucans, and other species. Spacious garden, good bedding and bath, fridge, front area with sitting place and hammock - all to your joy and relaxation.
What a wonderful place to get away from it all. 5 mile of mostly empty beach within 3 min walk. Wildlife all around. Saw Sloths, birds and psychedelic frogs while there. Grounds are beautiful. Great staff. Great restaurant across the street.
Warm welcome from Marcello, the owner and this was carries through to our departure. Small but heavenly place to stay with private cabins serviced daily amongst lush gardens and a beautiful pool area. Access to beach also and sloths in situ in gardens! Lovely variety of freshly prepared hot and continental breakfast. Made the end of our holiday just idyllic. Only downside some walk to main town but lovely stomp with flora and fauna on the way.
Dated facility barely kept running. Thin walls made normal activity next door an issue if sleeping. Breakfast not free. Safety is questionable as the gates are never locked. No on site security. No safe in room. Door locks are easily defeated with a credit card. Everything is falling apart. Reminds me of a 70's kids camp. I paid $35 @ night, and felt that was a bit high for the property. Only stay here if you cannot afford better. AC did work, but the minute you leave the property, they come into your room and shut it off. They did this every day.
The hostel is located in the Cahuita area It has great facilities ( plenty of parking space, swimming pool and direct view to the sea) and you can even enjoy local fauna in the trees & private garden The rooms are big and they offer typical Costa Rican breakfast The staff is very friendly
This is a nice little beach view hotel. Our 2 bedroom cabina was clean and comfortable. The evenings by the pool are relaxing. One small issue with room was handled efficiently to our satisfaction. Close to several local activities but you will need a car as there is little within walking distance.
So this is a small hotel near Cahuita town. It is not a gem. Nor is it beachfront. It is however overpriced but having said that, it still may be the best place to stay in Cahuita. The location is 2.7km from Cahuita township so you need a car or be prepared to walk to get anything. This would be inconvenient without your own transport. The hotel fronts onto water but it is rocky and not useable as such. A useable beach (with black sand) is 100m to the left of the hotel. We found: - the rooms to be clean - the bed to be comfortable - the pool to be good - a restaurant with simple options is right across the road and it was one of the better places we ate at - the air conditioning works well - the many hammocks to be convenient We also found: - our room to be dark - our room to have a broken toilet - the look and feel of the room to be not quite of the standard of the pictures provided by the hotel…
It is a place with a good natural garden, but rooms are not well cleaned! The Jacuzzi’s Room has a not so good worker jacuzzi... The owner seems not so much interested into guests. You don’t feel so good welcome.
I saw the reviews and was looking forward to a great experience. Arrived in the later afternoon and felt that I was inconveniencing the man checking me in. Just did not feel that normal Costa Rica vibe I receive from so many. The location is outside of Cahuita, a bit of a rocky road to get there, but you do not need a 4x4. I did not see any sloths, but saw some birds and heard howler monkeys. Sloths would be been great to see, but saw them in the park the next day. After dinner, came back and saw the man checking in, and others sitting in the bar/dining area, but after the chilly reception, decided not to go and mingle. The room was fine, it was a two bedroom, and ended up eating breakfast at Soda Kawe, which was amazing. I was thinking of staying another night, but decided against it. When I go back, will look for a different place to stay.…
Just returned from a four night stay at Hotel La Diosa. Marcelo greeted us warmly, even though we arrived late on a Wednesday evening after a long drive from SJO. We stayed in #5, which was furnished with two bedrooms (a double bed in each). The room was neat, clean, and quiet. Parking was abundant. We woke early the next morning, and what a sight presented itself to us - the grounds are gorgeous, well-maintained, and abound with flora and fauna (You want sloths? They're here.) What a simply beautiful spot perched on the Caribbean coast. The pool is very inviting, or check out the natural piscina at higher tides. Marcelo is an exemplary host - exceedingly gracious, polite, and cordial. He greeted my wife by name even though they had not met personally at check-in. And he helped us immensely by accommodating delivery of some personal items after we had to make a 5:00 AM departure to catch our return flight (Muchas gracias, Marcelo). We've stayed in three properties in Cahuita in the past two years; all have been very nice, but Hotel La Diosa has risen to the top of our list. We've little hesitation in recommending it for your consideration. Note that the two photos from the patio at #5 are the only ones I had on my phone, and they do not do Hotel La Diosa justice.…
