cafe playa negra

"I stayed at Cafe Playa Negra during my recent trip to Costa Rica and will be returning again at the end of May. I will certainly be staying at Cafe Playa Negra again. The staff are wonderful, polite and kind. The grounds are well maintained and clean. It has an overall wonderful vibe and energy perfect for the laid back groove of Costa Rica in general, and Playa Negra specifically. As a surfer, Cafe Playa Negra is very also very accommodating. It's a short walk from the famous Playa Negra reef and beach break. The hotel also has it's own restaurant and bar. The chef Juan Carlos is incredible and super warm and friendly. Every dish I ate there was delicious and this makes it very convenient as well since the best food in town is in the hotel. Cannot recommend this place more. Definitely check it out for your trip to this part of Costa Rica, which is just stunning. Oh... the water pressure in the shower is amazing."
