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.
