Boutique B&B at Serene Matapalo Beach

Our boutique Bed and Breakfast in Costa Rica is located a 2 minute walk from the beach and is surrounded by a lovely tropical garden where monkeys and sloths are seen very regularly. Observe them from your hammock at your outdoor living area or from the lounge deck next to the swimming pool. You can cool down in our pool enjoining a refreshing drink from the swim-up bar. All rooms come with a private patio, air-conditioning, a big king size bed, a private bathroom and are cleaned daily. We offer 4 room types; lovely double rooms, stylish deluxe double rooms, a spacious junior suite and a very private deluxe suite. We are proud of our wide breakfast menu; freshly made and always included in the room rate. Try out our homemade bread and Dutch pancakes!

Escape the crowds!

B&B Jardín de los Monos is located in the peaceful beach community of Playa Matapalo Costa Rica near Quepos and Dominical. Considered a hidden paradise by many. Nonetheless, very easily accessible over newly paved roads (only the very last part is unpaved, no 4×4 needed). Enjoy this gorgeous beach and its long views in privacy; no crowds here! The Bed and Breakfast is centrally positioned to explore the stunning natural beauty of the region. Tourism high-lights as; Manuel Antonio National Park near Quepos, the lively surf village of Dominical, Nauyaca waterfalls, Marino Ballena National Park in Uvita; they are all on a short driving distance from Playa Matapalo Costa Rica. Heading to Corcovado National Park? Jardín de los Monos is the perfect stop to enjoy a couple of beach days and unwind. We really advice to stay more than just 1 night, because Playa Matapalo and our Hotel / Bed & Breakfast is more than just a stopover place. From our experience we learned that guests always regret it when they just stayed 1 night. Besides this, nightly rates are always lower when booking 2 nights or more. Matapalo offers sufficient dinner options (4 restaurants & several soda’s). But Playa Matapalo is not suited to visit without a (rental) car; just 1 restaurant on walking distance (1 km/ 0.6 mi), no ATM, no Taxi’s and the nearest bus stop is 2.3 km (1.3 mi) away. Please visit our car rental page in case you are still looking for a rental car.

We liked everything! The room was spotless and bed was incredibly comfy. Bathroom was a dream and the A/C worked like a charm. Also the outside patio with the hammock was amazing to chill in when you wanted to catch a little sun. The nature that surrounds the property is incredibly beautiful, butterflies flying around and even a few sloths in the trees. The pool was a refreshing dip and the breakfast delicious and homecooked. Couldn’t be happier!

William, March 2022, US – Booking.com

We loved our stay at B&B Jardin de Los Monos!!! The 3 nights we spent here far exceeded our expectations with the luxurious gardens filled with birds and other wildlife along with our beautiful, very comfortable accommodations. The place was immaculate and beautifully designed for total comfort in a tropical setting! The location is perfect in Matapalo with a short walk to a beautiful, quiet beach. We were able to do day trips to Manuel Antonio and Rainmaker Falls from here. And above all else, Lettika and her husband were exceptional hosts; they went above and beyond in accommodating us and answering our myriad of questions about restaurants and activities in the area. If you are just planning your itinerary in Costa Rica, I would add this stay to it.

Bery beautiful location with sloths and monkeys in the garden. The host is so kind and made our stay very comfortable. Thanks!

Michael, April 2022, Austria – Booking.com

This property is conveniently located close to a beautiful and secluded beach. There are several popular attractions close by, and when you are done with those the pool and grounds are relaxing and refreshing.

Stephen, April 2022, US – Booking.com

This really was a great find. Everything about the place is perfect, the hosts are extremely professional in what they do and at the same time warm, friendly and helpful. The whole experience far exceeded our expectations and we would highly recommend this lovely place.

About your hosts Lettika & Gijs

We are Gijs & Lettika and we come originally from The Netherlands. After years of research and planning we made the move to Costa Rica in June 2014. We even backpacked for 1.5 years through Latin America to find THE best place for us. We believe we found that in Playa Matapalo, Costa Rica. Costa Rica is an amazing country where you are always close to nature and the people are just wonderful. We finally choose Playa Matapalo because it provides something that Lettika wanted ever since she was a little girl; monkeys in the garden! That is also the reason why we named our Hotel / Bed and Breakfast ‘Jardín de los Monos’ (Garden of the Monkeys/ Monkey Garden). And Gijs – born and raised on the small island Texel – just needs to be close to the beach and the sea. We love living on this unspoiled beach and being surrounded by nature and wildlife. We live here with our two sweet cats ‘Friemel’ & ‘Boef’ and our adorable dog ‘Texel’.

So come by and enjoy the ´Pura Vida lifestyle’ with us!
