Playa Cativo is a beachfront boutique hotel in Costa Rica's remote and beautiful Osa Peninsula. Its location on a 400 hectare private rainforest reserve close to Golfito and the Piedras Blancas National Park means it enjoys a 'best of both' location — the wildlife of the rainforest to explore on excursions, but also the beach just a few steps away from your room.
All rooms come with ocean views as standard, along with king-sized beds, ceiling fans, wireless internet, coffee makers and hot water rain showers. Upgrade to a Luxury Room for a little more space and enhanced views, or splash out on a Premium Room for a larger bathroom, minibar and unforgettable views.
Facilities at the hotel include an ocean-facing pool and bar, restaurant where all meals are included during your stay, tropical gardens and jungle trails. Equipment for kayaking, snorkeling and stand-up paddle boarding are also included free of charge for guests.
