We loved this little and cosy hotel from the first moment. The ocean view is spectacular and the colourful bungalows are very inviting. There is a sandy beach in front and some benches to watch the sunset. Marcelo was very helpful and friendly and he explained us where to go and what to do in the area. The bungalow we stayed in had a jacuzzi and was tastefully decorated and it was very clean. The mattresses were first class and we slept very good with the sound of the ocean. The breakfast is served in an open pavilion with a great view to the ocean. We got fruits, pancakes, toast and very good Costarican coffee. It was delicious.
We would love to come back...

To be able to hear the sea while you sleep still is one of the best memories while staying at La Diosa. The owners have paid attention to the design of the whole place giving it a zen feeling that soothes you heart. The room we rented was the suite Pachamama with a king size bed and a jacuzzi within. All the things combined made our stay at his jewel of the Caribe a must place to visit.

Room Tip: If you want a romantic room take four or one, for families a bungalow

This is a beach front hotel. Very exotic location and a nice pool. I came for 3 nights with a few friends. We booked 4 rooms.

Rooms are nice but poorly maintained. A/C in one of the rooms was broken and we waited for 2 days before it got fixed. The service in general was poor. They were not rude but simple useless.

Breakfast was just ok... Typical costa rican gallo pinto

We stay at La Diosa for one night and although the place is nice, rooms are simple but comfortable, and beach is very close, the owner and reception service were very disappointing.

We were at the pool at night and all the sudden the lights when off, when tried to ask for help at the front desk but the person in charge, a young man, just said that that happened often, that some how light will come back on... He didn't even tried to go and look to solve de problem.

Next morning we ask the owner for a late check-out, and he didn't even want to face us, he sent a maid to tell us that no way, that check-out was at noon. I would have understood this if the place was full, but it wasn't... so what was the big deal of not letting us stay a few hours more and enjoy his facilities!!. Or at least come by and explain himself the reasons, offer us to check out form 2 of the 3 rooms, or any other option.

Too bad he doesn't appreciate to keep long lasting clients. (we are Costa Ricans... and could get back very often!!)

Extremely sorry for the service he offers!!

STAFF:A mother, a son and one maid. The son greeted us and was stoned out of his mind. Spoke very little English and was incredibly rude. Both were just awful.
FOOD:None there and NO restaurants in sight...closest one is 30 minutes away.
LOCATION:Middle of nowhere. It is right on the beach but unless you plan on locking yourself within a thousand foot radius with no food and a pool filled with green water and palm leaves...go somewhere else.
CLEANLINESS: WORSE than a hostel in the pits of New York City.
OVERALL: We were the only people there, our room was no larger than a broom closet crammed with two queen size beds and a BATH TUB. NO JACUZZI as promised. While waiting to get our money back, my friend and I explored and noticed all the other guest rooms were filled with empty beer bottles, mirrors and garbage. DO NOT STAY HERE.

Room Tip: This whole area is dead unless you drive 30 minutes to Puerto Viejo which is a hoping college party...

If you decide that Cahuita is where you want to stay (see below), this hotel is an excellent choice. The setting is beautiful and peaceful with a large lagoon-shaped pool next to the natural vegetation by the beach. Our room was spacious and air-conditioned with a large bathroom with plenty of hot water and a porch which overlooked the sea. This is the only nicer hotel in Cahuita which is directly on the beach. The similar Magellan Inn and Suizo Loco are up the road about 300 and 500 feet from the beach respectively but beach access from them is more difficult since most beach property is fenced-in and you must find a break to get through. Breakfast was well-prepared, adequate but not copious. My problem was not with the hotel itself but with the Cahuita area. The town is run-down and sleazy with not much there. We did find two good restaurants, the Swedish Bakery for lunch and the Coral Reef for dinner. (Do not go to Miss Edith's regardless of what the guidebooks say!) The one good thing about Cahuita is the National Park with its long, beach-side trail, wildlife, and calm waters for swimming. Note that the Carribean side of Costa Rica is much less developed than the Pacific coast and appeals more to Europeans than to Americans who want more luxurious accomodations and upscale restaurants. The Puerto Viejo area, about 10 miles south of Cahuita, provides more civilization and much better restaurants. However, if you really want to get away from it all in a natural setting, Cahuita may be perfect for you.

Room Tip: Ask for one of the rooms with a porch in the duplex bungalows.
