“perfect place to experience the beauty of Cahuita!”
Reviewed 24 April 2014

This review is way over due! I stayed here last summer (August 2013) with my boyfriend for a total of 5 days. What a wonderful experience it was! Only a nice 15 minute walk away from the center of town, this is a perfect escape for couples, or groups of friends looking to find a authentic, well kept lodging experience. Patty and Walter were super helpful and kind and they keep their property in tip top shape. The garden and the natural pool were beautiful and we found ourselves enjoying many afternoons just lounging in the natural pool, floating in and out with the tide. At one point, while sipping on some beers in the pool, we looked up and saw a sloth just sleeping above us. Totally amazing. The rooms were clean, comfortable and some of the nicest and cutest we stayed at during our whole trip. ABSOLUTELY would love to to stay here again the next time I find myself in Cahuita!

It´s a great place, nice people and very quiet. I stayed there with my husband, we wanted to have a quiet place to come back after traveling around. It´was the best chocie. It´s not expensive and the people who run the hotel are very cool and nice.
Thanks a lot!

We (couple, 41 & 50) stayed at Piscina Natural in March 2014. We paid $45 a night for a room with bathroom, floor fan and one comfortable double bed. The bathroom was small and simple; the shower had an electric shower head for hot water. BUT there was no bathroom door! And the windows were not screened. We slept with the windows closed and under a mosquito net and were not bothered by mosquitos. The room is simple but clean and nicely decorated. The beautifully landscaped property is one of the nicest in over 50 hotels we've stayed at the past five months. The natural pool, a big tide pool, is amazing to look at and great for wading. The property is right on a rocky portion of the coast with lots of chairs and hammocks to enjoy the view. There is no restaurant but a kitchen for use 6:00 AM to 11:00AM. There are a few restaurants within five minutes walking but the town, shops and ATMs are 20 minutes away. Playa Negra is three minutes walking away. We rented bikes which made the town much more accessible. The owners, Patty and Walter, were friendly and the atmosphere is relaxed (there are only five rooms). The wi-fi was available only near the kitchen and was very weak. There are no taxis in Cahuita, so we had to walk 2 Km with our packs. Piscina Natural is a good value. Put in bathroom doors, screen the windows and allow kitchen use all day and it would be an excellent value. We will stay at Piscina Natural if we return to Cahuita.

Artfully conceived and beautifully maintained gardens, and paths that wind to the yard's edge of coral reef and breaking surf. Little tables situated for taking in the land and the sea. Hammocks awaiting your nap. The peacocks and the flowers. The colors. The big open-air bar and dining area, the meals being prepared by you in the big kitchen behind. The first pot of coffee in the morning already made by Walter. The black sand beach inviting you to swim in it's turquoise and green waters. I think I'll go back.

We started at another place in town, but quickly wanted to leave and find something a little better. After checking out almost every place around, we stumbled upon Piscina Natural and were instantly hooked. As you enter the gates, you are met with a garden that just draws you in. As you wander through, you pass the big open air fully stocked kitchen eating area. This can really help cut down on costs and time wasted hunting for all you meals. The trail continues on to a natural lagoon and onto the lava water front with several hammocks hung under a huge tree. The rooms were clean and comfortable with fans, mozzy nets and are shaded by all the trees. The owners are very friendly and the lady is from north America and can help with all your needs. The black sand beach is only 5 min away, but the town is 30 min walk. They don't rent bikes, but you can get them in town if you don't have a car

An exceptional deal for $45

I was here with friends but I would love to come here for a romantic getaway. The room was simple and clean but the real charm is the grounds, gardens, and natural pools. Lots of sweet places to sit in the gardens or hanging in a hammock. The coral reef forms natural calm jungle pools to cool off in safely away from the pushy tide. Dreamy!
Patty was a very sweet and helpful host. We were able to use the kitchen to cook our own meals and the open air dining room is lovely.

Room Tip: I believe there are only 5 rooms, all in a line. They all seemed to be about the same in size, quali...

We enjoyed our stay at La Piscina Natural in Cahuita, CR, and wish we could have stayed longer.
The ancient coral reef has been eroded into fascinating fissures with a tidepool boasting a tiny secluded beach. We loved walking into the pulsing surf from the seclusion of the hideaway pools -- then floating out near (and with) the breakers in a completely safe piscina. Patty and Walter have dedicated their lives to their sweet garden -- with thrilling cacti and palms and succulents, tropical flowers, tiny frogs, even fluffy little chicks and some peacocks! Clearly, they
love the land! Our quarters were delightfully airy and clean, with access to an open-air kitchen.
La Piscina Natural is a tropical paradise!

Room Tip: Rooms on the corners have 2 windows.
