We stayed here three nights during our round trip through Costa Rica. The location is out of town down a 4x4 type road.

Each rooms is in a seperate cabin...

This is a great place if you want to stay at Playa Negra. The bungalows are nice and quite isolated. Even tough there are 8 bungalows, you can't see you neighbors from your room. The swimming pool is really great! There is not a real restaurant, but they do offer breakfast and can prepare sandwiches, burgers and batidos on request....

Group of cabins apparently built from beach stones, and the insides are of the same material making everything very very dark. But there is air-conditioning. Breakfast charged extra. Common facilities OK.

We stayed at Bungalows Malu for three nights in September and loved it there. It was so relaxing and right across from the beach. My fiance and I had just got engaged, so if you are looking for quiet, off the beaten path romance this is the place. We did some more traveling along the caribean coast but ended up...

Clean rooms all in wood. We went for one day and we liked it so much that we finally stayed 4. It's a nice and quite place with excellent paintings everywhere ( in the room, the open restaurant. All the painting are from the owner, Alessandra Bucci. The swimming-pool is fantastic, small but very cute. We really recommend this place...

“#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.”
