We found this place amazing!!! So beautiful; on the beach, next to the park. Erica knows a lot about the animals and what to do around. She is kind and sweet. We were upset seeing people feeding the animals in the nationals park (Kelly creek) and no one stop them. Anyway, I can't say enough about the charm of this...

We stays 4 nights on the pacific side. Than another 2 nights near Arenal. We had booked another 4 nights in this area: the 1st turn to be "not for people" so we cancel after 1 night. That we pay for one night nearby - the first available- as it's the end of the year time. Than we found this...

It was so wonderful living with the beautiful Erica at Kelly Creek hotel. Though it has been a year since we were there, I m missing it terribly. What more could you ask for a peaceful holiday in nature

This place has a lot of things to recommend it, but on balance I wouldn't suggest staying here for more than a couple of nights as the rooms have some pretty big drawbacks. Our first room was towards the back of the property and had almost no natural light, plus almost no artificial light due to how dim the bulbs...

Really recommend this lovely place. In the back you see you all kinds of animals since it's just near the national park. We actually saw more animals here than in the park!! Many birds, moneys, leguanas, racoon etc. rooms are big, clean and very beautiful.

Right on the creek bordering the national park, Kelly's offers a wildlife paradise, breakfast with iguanas, monkeys, racoons, caimans, sloths, herons....and more. The rooms are generous with high ceilings, the owner Erica a gracious hostess, we loved it, meant to travel further but just stopped here. Thanks you Erica for an amazing stay.

We had read great reviews of this place so we decided to Give it a try. Not a great idea. I must first say that our Hostess, Erica, is a very nice lady. She is wonderful to talk to, but we wonder if she should run a business. We were first given a duplex room that she said she would,...

We booked our last minute stay on a busy Costa Rican holiday weekend - holiday weekends in in Costa Rica drive huge populations from the city to the beach, filling hotels to capacity. Eric (proprietor) was gracious and understanding of our last-minute need to get out of the city and decompress, if even for a short stay. Upon arrival after...

The morning after our first night at Kelly Creek, my husband and I woke up with literally dozens of itchy red bites on legs, arms, hands, and so forth. Erica, the proprietor, said she thought the flat red ones were sand fleas. We had not yet been out on the beach, so we wondered how we got sand flea bites....

On our first trip to Costa Rica, we chose Cahuita because we wanted a relaxed place. We spent 22 nights at Kelly Creek Hotel and it was the most gorgeous time of our lives. Erika is a caring, beautiful woman who has made a lovely space. The animals surround Kelly Creek also wanting to be part of this sublime spot....

“Take advantage of your location. Park opens at 6:00 A.M. Also. Be first to arrive and hike the whole park. It's only 9 kilometers.”

“Look for screens on all windows. Best views are from the front, but those don't have screens. Good view is not as important as screens.”

“Ask for the rooms facing the beach for views or the gardens for a bit more privacy and less ambient noise from the music across the street.”
