10/10 Exceptional

Excellent place to stay. We loved the area, the cabin was clean and comfortable, and the breakfast was also great. We also spent quite a bit of time on the patio watching the birds and monkeys. I would definitely recommend it!

Great stay at Cavao Monkeys
Great stay at Cavao Monkeys made even better by the ever helpful Michelle and Maria. Daily visits from howler and cappuchin monkeys. Easy walk into town and some good restaurants. Highly recommended

8/10 Very good

Loved the setting, and the howler monkeys at 4:00 am sound like a lullaby to me. (It's really more of a roar than a howl.) It was quite adequate, if a bit spartan, but hey, it's on the edge of the jungle. Extra marks for the 1.5 km hiking trail that starts over by the yoga studio (unused in the off season) Patricia was a gracious hostess. Her staff make an excellent breakfast (included), the coffee was passable (Costa Rica exports all their best coffee, so a really fine cuppa is actually fairly rare there) and they serve a very large number of choices for dinner (extra) as well, with ample portions. Slight ding because the Wi-Fi didn't work in the cabins, although it was as good as anywhere in Osa in the restaurant/reception area. I would stay here again.

It's a nice place to stay. People there are friendly and helpful. In our two-night stay, we mistakenly threw a watch away to the trash can in our room. They help us to find the watch from the trash dump even after we already checked out.

Traumhaft schön und super nett
Als wir ankamen war ich leider etwas krank. Das Personal hat sofort versucht mich mit allem möglichem aufzupeppeln - davon wurde auch garnichts berechnet. Essen ist super lecker, der hauseigene Trail durch den Dschungel abenteuerreich. Die Hütte sind sehr gemütlich und schön. Kann man nur weiterempfehlen!!!
