Stayed two nights at Bungalows Ache and what a review I have! First night I woke up at 5:00 AM to howler monkeys and other wildlife. Hiked all day at Cahuita park and returned to my bungalow to find the whole area screaming with more howler monkeys. Then the white face monkeys came through and I was able to feed... More

My husband and I stayed a couple of nights with Doris at Bungalows Ache and we totally enjoyed the experience of being in the middle of the jungle. We traveled for 10 days in Costa Rica and this spot was by far the place where we saw and heard more monkeys! OMG! Even more than in the National Parks!! The... More

I had a pleasant 4 night stay here in September. Doris is a pleasant and responsive host. I saw tons of wildlife from the bungalow deck, including capuchin and howler monkeys, agouti, a raccoon and iguanas. The bungalows themselves are pretty basic. No screens on the windows, and mosquito nets with some gaps. The bed was not particularly comfortable, and... More

Our favorite place we stayed in Costa Rica. There are three bungalows- we recommend the farthest one on the end with the two beds. We stayed here over Christmas and loved it. It rained a lot, and we didn't even care! We would sit out on the porch a lot and watch for animals right outside our door. We saw... More

We chose Bongalow Ache base on photos from internet (thanks TripAdvisor). Alway is possible to make mistake in such case but this time it was no mistake. Bungalow Ache are located in perfect place practically on border with National Park. Very good place, comfortable with all things which you need for stay. For sure I recommend this place.

Unfortunately, Bungalow Aché hasn't been the paradise that we have imagined. The room was pretty dirty, dusty and full of mosquitos,other little insects ,and geckos. Of course, we were in the middle of the forest, but we haven't found others accommodations as dirty as Bungalow Ache' in our vacation! Besides the place, the owner hasn't been really friendly with us.... More

I am disappointed to read that our cabins did not meet up to your expectations. I too would expect to have a clean room. Our wooden rooms are rustic and the nature of the material means that the walls cannot be painted white so may not appear as bright as a concrete and tiled building, even when they have been...

This place is close to the national park! We were relaxing on the hamac while watching monkeys, birds and unknown animals visiting the garden! The banglows are very well designed which allow us to keep our intimacy. There is free coffee in the room for breakfast. Be careful about the hot water for shower: if there is no hot water,... More

Beautiful setting. From our bungalow we saw more nature than you'd see in a zoo. Howler monkeys, other kinds of monkeys, and amazing birds. Rustic but clean cabins. Low-key but kind and helpful staff. There are insects and lizards in the room, but they stay on the ceiling.

Our stay was quite unenjoyable, and unless Doris makes some easy, but much needed changes I would not recommend her bungalows to anyone. Lonely Planet's 10th edition (2012) has the bungalows rated as their top choice, and describes them as 'spotless', which they are far, far from. I believe Doris is resting on her laurels. We were in the middle... More

Cahuita and its National Park are an irresistible attraction to nature lovers. Cahuita maintains its Afro-Caribbean style; its characteristic houses, reggae music and calypso in the air. We are situated on the edge of the Cahuita National Park. It is an ideal place for those who wish to relax and appreciate the local flora and fauna, listen to birdsong and watch the monkeys high in the huge trees. ... more   less
