    Brigitte’s Ranch was an excellent stay. We had a great time staying with her. They serve an amazing breakfast menu with perfect pancakes. Brigitte was very accommodating and picked us up from the bus station in Cahuita to help with our arrival. The ranch boasts a lot of wildlife and we saw our first Sloth With her. We are staying in the area for around 3 months and will definetely go back for breakfast and to see Brigitte and her team. Lots of acitivitied available from the ranch.

    What a great place! There are only two cabins there, so it's very private. It's just a few steps from the ocean, and next to a couple of bars/restaurants. It's about a 10-15 minute walk into Cahuita. The staff were all very kind and helpful. Breakfast isn't included, but it was delicious. The cabin was simple, but had everything I needed. I especially enjoyed having my own porch with table and hammocks.

    I looooooooove this place and Cahuita! We felt at home and we enjoyed the village ! Brigitte was so kind to us, she helped us throughout our stay! We also enjoyed her restaurant for breakfast. Try the banana pancake ! People from Cahuita are very welcoming too. We are looking forward to go back for a longer stay. The cabin is close to the village and the beach. It is located in a private area but still close to everything. We walked to go everywhere. Thanks to Brigitte and her staff!

    This place is wonderful! Our little cabin was adorable and had everything we needed. The garden is an off and on home to sloths, monkeys, iguanas, poison dart frogs and more, so you never know what you will be able to find right on the property! Breakfast is delicious and reasonably priced. The only things we didn’t absolutely love were the 15 min walk to town and one of her dogs, who was a bit aggressive. Cahuita is a must! The National Park is full of wildlife and the beaches are to die for.

    If you like animals and are looking for a beachside location then this is good value for money, clean and comfortable, but very rustic. There are cats, dogs, horses, chickens, and even sloths in the trees outside the rooms. The breakfast wasn't included but was very tasty and big servings. 50m from the beach, and two bar/restaurants next door which is handy as the main town is about 15 mins walk away. Very relaxing swinging in a hammock under the trees!

    Briggitte is very friendly. The hostel's got an amazing garden, we even saw red poison frog there. The breakfast is yummy. Location is perfect, few min from beaches and bars. I only wish it had more like a common area and kitchen for guest use.

    Pros -Sloths! Sloths live on the property, we saw them up close -great value, unique, nice breakfast -Brigitte is helpful & kind, and knows the area well -2min walk Playa Negra, nearby Reggae Bar/Restaurant, small shop Cons -Bed isn’t very comfortable, lumpy pillows -on arrival Brigitte was out until evening so we didn’t have a proper checkin/intro until then. She was very distracted and difficult to get her attention to ask any questions, we felt like a nuisance -main town is 15min wal

    From our arrival we felt like an inconvenience to the owner. It didn't help she didn't have our reservation listed despite us showing her the website confirmation emails. We were rushed through check in and left in a cabin 10 minutes from the actual ranch, something we were not aware of until we arrived otherwise we might have not booked. We paid £10 for washing but it came back smelly and despite the owners agrament to drop it off to us we had to go and walk 20 minutes round trip to pick it up
