Fodor's Review

One of Cahuita's most elegant lodgings, this group of bungalows is graced with tile-floor terraces facing a pool and gardens growing on an ancient coral reef. Carpeted rooms have original paintings and custom-made wooden furniture. Feast on intensely flavored French and Creole seafood specialties at the Casa Creole ($$), open for dinner each evening on the hotel's patio; don't miss the house pâté or the homemade ice cream. The open-air bar rocks to great blues and jazz

recordings in the evening and mellows with classical music at breakfast. You'll receive a small discount if you pay in cash.

Enchanting place

Very peaceful with lovely gardens. Comfortable rooms. Our rooms were screened, but they also have rooms with air condition. We really found everything we were hoping for, definitely one of the nicer places we stayed in.

Terrible Service

We felt uncomfortable and unwelcome by the gringa who owns the place. When we expressed our concerns, there was no apology. Too manu rules like a a boot camp. We paid for two days and left after the first night. No refund or sorry! Terrible experience.
