Beautiful, comfortable cabins in a really lovely garden on the edge of "town" - approx 5 mins (if that) to beach / park / town.
Our cabin had a double bed and a single bed - both with mosquito nets. We also had a lovely veranda/ porch with a hammock and chair. There are cooking facilities, fridge etc in a separate "open" cabin where you can sit and have your breakfast/dinner.
Only caution / complaint was that the owner wasn't particularly friendly. No big issue, just unusual for CR.
In terms of location - Cahuita is a quiet little town with a few restaurants/ shops. The beach is not very big but is nice enough. Nearby Puerto Viejo has more life if that is what you are looking for.
Whatever you do DO NOT go to the chocolate plantation $25 for a very poor tour. Not good value at all.
Oh and final warning - the howler monkeys are loud and if nearby will wake you......../first time scare you S**tless!!!
