January 2016 Stay

Perfect little getaway

4.8 on June 06, 2016

Clean rooms with an eye for detail, delicious breakfast with local ingredients, wonderful hosts who help with anything you need. The property is beautiful and well cared for, but still kept natrual so that we could see frogs, toucans, a sloth and many birds. Definitely recommended!

Tranquil tropical oasis

3.8 on March 14, 2016

Three cabins and the main owners house are all beautifully built of wood, all separated by a lush tropical garden all situated behind the wooden fence and gate with ample parking within the compound. You can enjoy the sound of birds in the morning and in the afternoon as well as howling of monkeys either from your own bed as all the window opening are screened and you have an open air feeling, or from the swinging armchairs or hammock from the cabin porch. You can watch butterflies, humming birds, dragon flies, little black-green frogs or cautious pacas walking or flying right in front of you. The entire place is immaculate and tranquil. Hosts are good friendly people with a lot of information about the area and Costa Rica in general. You feel welcome in their home. Breakfasts is exquisitely arranged with fresh flowers from the garden. Of course the substance is first class, variety of artisan breads, fresh fruit and different omelet flavor each day. Juice is freshly prepared and of course all the other ingredients are there, coffee, tea, marmalade etc. Nearby beach is close and Cahuita village and National Park are within a walking range. Place well worth staying at.

Incredible Stay!

5 on May 06, 2015

We stayed for four nights. We had an incredible time. Their property is absolutely beautiful and Chris and Joe were very helpful and attentive to our needs and very knowledgeable about the local plants, animals and insects. Their morning breakfasts were delicious and covered all the local fruits and recipes. We had one dinner prepared by them which was one of the best meals I've ever had. They gave us great recommendations on local places to go. The location is perfect where you can walk to restaurants, the beach and the national park. This place is highly recommended!

Jungle Luxury

5 on April 25, 2015

Our two nights at Coral Hills were amazing. The bungalows are clean, comfortable and gorgeous. The grounds are so lush that you feel total and complete privacy. We availed ourselves of Joe's gourmet dinner one night and it was delightful, as were the breakfasts. Cahuita is a tremendous contrast to the highly developed Pacific Coast, much more laid back. We will be back again, for sure! Bruce & Barbara

We stayed at Coral Hill Bungalows for 5 nights in February 2015. Everything about our stay was excellent. The bungalow was immaculate. It was serviced every day and this high standard was maintained every day. The Breakfast was outstanding, lots of very fresh fruit and eggs. Chris and Joe were fantastic hosts and nothing was too much trouble for them. Whatever you wanted to do they could help you with and we found their recommendations to be excellent. We would highly recommend staying at the property and we would definitely return.

great place, great hosts

4.2 on February 06, 2015

We enjoyed the peaceful scenery (and yes, the sounds of the jungle are part of that) as well as the extraordinary hospitality of Chris and Joe very much. Things to be remembered most: The marvelous breakfast and the tiny little black and green frogs.

Fabulous, if rainy, stay

4.6 on February 03, 2015

This B&B is exactly as advertised. Rooms are spacious and comfortable, breakfasts great, and location excellent. (It's about 15 minute walk to town, a few minutes to the Playa Negra). But the best things about the place are the owners -- Joe and Chris go out of their way to make your visit easy, fun, and generally wonderful. Will definitely go back!

Loved Coral Hill Bungalows!

Beautiful property, very safe and secure with very gracious hosts, everything in walking distance and very affordable. We really enjoyed our stay there. If there was a downside it was that it rained every night and it was very loud on the tin roof ( all the buildings have tin roofs in the area ) we are light sleepers and it kept us awake so I would suggest they have earplugs available or bring your own..
