Well, in truth, in the low season it’s all quiet, but Bungalow Malu, owned by Italians, is at the very end of Playa Negra and at the quietest bit, away from the Reggae Bar and any noise. When full there may be some activity but it was just myself and a long-term guest and extremely quiet. The pool is really...

We stayed here four nights in January 2013. This is one of the few lodgings in the area if Cahuita with Air Conditioning. This also one of the few places in the area if Cahuita with a pool. Both these things were very appreciated as this is the tropical jungle and it is hot and steamy year round. The owners...

I would like to suggest that they change out the mattress that we had in our room, as if seemed very worn,and add a couple more pillows. The deck chairs...

Pleasant staff, good atmosphere. Airco sometimes stops due to weak electricity in the whole neighborhood, but not disturbing. Excellent breakfast with fresh fruit, scrambled eggs, juice, bread, and coffee or hot chocolate. Pool was clean when we stayed. Possibility to have lunch and dinner as well. This is practical, as the hotel is a good 20 min walk from the...

We stayed in about 14 different places in Costa Rica and this was our favorite. Quiet. Clean. Great staff. They spoke perfect English. Just across a small road from one of the nicest beaches we saw in all of Costa Rica. Make sure you take a shower by the pool after you return from the beach or get out of...

“#4 was the most private and farthest from any potential noise. Great deck.”
  • Gorgeous pool - worth the price of the room just for this (no sand!)
  • Excellent bed in a lovely bungalow - #4

“Each bungalow is laid out a bit differently so do email them and see what is available that might suit your needs. If I had know that there was one with a separate living room area from the bedroom I would have booked that.”
