Fodor's Review

Private, spacious wood cabins—one sleeps six, others sleep four—have kitchenettes, tiled bathrooms, hammocks strung on wide porches, and comfortable mattresses covered with colorful Guatemalan bedspreads. Unbeatable views and affordable prices set these stylishly rustic cabins apart. The forest grows right up to the edge of the property, high on a mountain ridge south of town. Host Susie Atkinson serves great breakfasts (not included in rate) in the lodge's bamboo-roof,

pagoda-style dining room. Two lookout towers at each end of the tiny pool and a viewing deck catch the spectacular sunsets and passing whale pods. The road up to this lofty perch requires a 4WD vehicle, but the hotel owners can pick you up in town with advance notice. Be prepared for a barky welcome; Susie and her husband, George, love big (but gentle) dogs. The reception desk closes at 6 pm.

Pacific Edge Review

Since 2006, we have stayed many times with George and Susie, owners of Pacific Edge. This cozy B&B is our favorite place to relax and unwind while on the Southern Pacific Coast of Costa Rica. The view is fabulous unmatched by any other hotel in the area. The cabins are very clean, comfortable and private. Our favorite cabin is deluxe cabin #2 and it has a refrigerator, microwave, toaster and electric skillet so it's very easy to cook for yourself.

But, if you don't want to cook, you can get delicious breakfasts and dinners prepared by Susie. She is an awesome cook! Another reason we really like Pacific Edge is due to their no children policy. Our children are grown now and when we are on vacation, we like a serene environment. George and Susie are very knowledgeable about the area. They have helped us arrange excursions and recommended some great local restaurants. We highly recommend you stay at Pacific Edge!

A little piece of heaven!

This is a WONDERFUL spot for folks looking for something different not right on the beach. It's hard to imagine a better ocean view (guaranteed to knock your socks off!) than Pacific Edge has. Must be 180 degrees. Whales can be spotted. It's a small property with just 4 cabins of various sizes, the owner's home, a small pool,small outdoor dining/bar area, and two great lookouts. Lovely grounds. About a mile up a bumpy unpaved road. Cabins are

rustic, yet very well thought out. The owners (who are lots of fun) are lifelong sailors, so well versed at making good use of small space and keeping everything shipshape. The cabins are cantilevered one next to the other down a ridge -- each with a wonderful porch and its own fabulous ocean view.
