Lovely private bungalow just as pictured on the website situated in a pleasant forested garden. Clean and comfortable. Smallish bed and no A/C and limited hot water, nevertheless perfectly adequate. Wonderful location just outside Cahuita, which itself if quite a nice little town, and within minutes of Cahuita National Park. Owner/Manger Julie is very pleasant and extremely helpful. Her staff are also terrific. Secure parking. Very nice place for couples or a family. Affordable.

The bungalow was very comfortable and well decorated. The garden is beautiful and full of animals, you really feel like you're in the middle of the jungle with all the animal noises that wake you up in the morning :) Aaron was a great host, very kind and helpful (when we forgot something he rushed to the post office to send it to our next hotel!), no wonder his adorable dog Hunter adores him! Brigitte's ranch nearby offers all services and the 2 restaurants and beach nearby are nice, except the sandflies in the end of the afternoon so better go early to enjoy the almost desert and beautiful black sand beach. The wifi signal could be better but this is quite usual in Costa Rica. The city is a 20min walk along the beach, 25min to the national park, well you are on vacation, pura vida!

Before we even arrived here the owner of this property, Julie, saved us from ourselves and urged us not to travel from San Jose in the late afternoon/early evening. What good advice that was. Having driven over the mountains in daylight I have no doubt we would have struggled at night and in the rain. Next time we go, and we will, we'll fly out to Limon. Stayed here the first 10 days of May. Beautiful bungalow, stunning gardens and wildlife all around us. Including at least 1 sloth in the trees every day. Wonderful to wake up to the sounds of monkeys and birds and to fall asleep listening to the frogs. If the wind is in the right direction you can even hear the sea. Breakfast was always excellent and presented beautifully, really set us up for the day and always very different. A real treat. The coffee was great too. As wonderful as this place is, the best part for us was the introduction they gave us to a local naturalist Fernando - who showed us the national park and his own jungle garden at night which were real highlights for us. Great location, very quiet but the town centre is a short walk away. There are a couple of local bars and restaurants even closer, right on the beach. Thanks for an amazing time to Julie, Brandon and especially Hunter!!

Hello Kernowcats! ;- ) Thank you for such a glowing review! We are humbled and happy that you enjoyed your stay! Travelling around Costa Rica can be a little tricky sometimes, especially at night, and if it's your first visit here. Plus, when you travel during the daytime you don't miss the beautiful vistas! And yes, taking a domestic flight from San Jose to Limon is the quickest and easiest way to get here! We would love to see you again sometime! Hunter sends his love! Julie : -)

I’m not sure what we expected but this place exceeded everything we could have hoped for. Gorgeous private bungalows with nice amenities, beautiful gardens, howler monkeys, toucans, sloths right in your trees, fabulous food and company. Julie (the owner) is so nice and wants your stay to be special. She has good contacts in the area for things to do, where to eat, people to talk to, etc etc. Being in Cahuita it was wonderfully quiet and relaxed. Walking distance to restaurants and other businesses and we felt very at home and safe in the area. We really feel blessed to have found her and Coral Hill Bungalows and will be back. Thank you Julie and Alicia and Benjamin

After spending 2 nights in hectic San José, it felt like having arrived in heaven! Upon Arrival just ring the doorbell and you Will be welcomed by the lovely host Julie and her dog! There are 3 beautiful bungalows hidden in an amazing garden full of wildlife! We saw our first 2 species of poisened frogs, toucan, colourfull birds, slot and many more just outside our doorstep. The bungalows are very romantic and Well maintained. The breakfast was a treat for eyes and tongue! Location is close to playa negro and a couple of bars/restaurants to spend the eventing. National park of cahuita is free (walk of 45 min). We only booked here for 2 nights but i wished we could have stayed longer. A wonderfull start to our 3 weeks tour in Costa Rica and a big "Thanks" to Julie from Conny, Rene and Kim for all her help!

This place is wonderful. My wife and I only stayed one night (sadly) but it was truly excellent. Julie, the host, is very warm, friendly and helpful and her dog, Hunter, is absolutely gorgeous. Breakfast was delicious and the bungalow itself was really cosy and clean and well-appointed. No distance to the beach and restaurants. I can't recommend this beautiful place highly enough. We would come back in a heartbeat. (If you're in the area visit the Sloth Sanctuary.)

We stayed for a week and absolutely loved it. Beautiful breakfasts and a “garden” full of wildlife. A sloth low down in a tree outside our room and a slaty tailed trogon amongst other gorgeous birds. The rooms are very attractively furnished and the location is great.

I can't t say enough about the professionalism and hospitality of the woman who runs this place. She did everything to help me get around and figure out things. And her breakfasts are superb. The place itself is also really nice. The bungalow was immaculate (no mean feat in the jungle). The beach is just a brief walk away. Do yourself a favor.

I gave 3* because I don’t think there is value for money here. Also the property is situated over 25mins walk from the centre of Cahuita and the National Park, along a stony and dusty road. It is safe at night, if dark in places. The bungalow is beautifully fitted out and very comfortable with good shower, plenty of hot water and good ceiling fan. No a/c but I didn’t miss it. Excellent mosquito net which you must use as I got bitten the night I didn’t use it despite netting on windows. The odd grasshopper, cricket and baby gecko in the bathroom didn’t bother me. The grounds are lovely. Breakfast (a plate of fruit and a hot dish) was beautifully served and adequate though you had to ask for more as more was not offered. Parsimony? Frugality? I don’t know which. At this price there should have been a buffet breakfast, even if only 3-4 people (as only 3 bungalows). Julie was welcoming and helpful but there are lots of rules: indoors no smoking, no sun lotion, no insect spray, keep the wooden surfaces dry. All make sense but there is a certain uptightness, constraint and restraint. I enjoyed myself but next time I would stay more centrally and in a hotel which gives better value.

Hello David! I am sorry that you did not fully enjoy your stay at Coral Hill Bungalows. Also, sorry you felt there were too many rules and regulations. :-( Concerning the no smoking indoors, that is a law that is countrywide in Costa Rica (Ley 9028). As far as keeping wood surfaces dry (bathroom vanity) and no spraying of insect spray, etc., our bungalows are constructed from a special wood that can no longer be forested and we take pride in keeping our bungalows and their wood surfaces as pristine as possible. I do sincerely hope you are enjoying the rest of your holiday in this beautiful and diverse country. All the best, Julie (owner)
