Still the same as my previous stay at this place back in May 2011. The only difference is that Carol wasn't here this time. This cabina is set in a beautiful garden. My single-private room was simple with a nice double-size bed and a big mosquito-net hanging over it. It was clean and cozy enough, and now there is even... More

Cabinas Carol has potential to be a cool Hostel. The location is pretty good, and the fact that they sent a shuttle to pick us up from the dock in Golfito was great, although expensive. The room was a little dirty and attracted all sorts of wildlife, which is fine considering it's Costa Rica, but it had sugar ants all... More

Cabinas carol is a really well laid out hostel and the kitchen & bathroom is cleaned every morning. There's hammocks outside every room, the shared showers and toilets have an 'outdoor style' and are always clean. There's free coffee, bananas and basic cooking essentials and the communal kitchen and eating area is big and really comfortable. Now about the wave...... More

Pavones is a paradise, by far my favorite place in Costa Rica - and Cabinas Carol is a fantastic place to stay there - excellent location (just up from the soccer field, about a short a walk as you could hope for to the wave) Carol is awesome as well, and is a most excellent host - graciously putting out...

Carol is a most gracious host. She's like mom who keeps making sure you've got what you need. A good mix of surfboards were available (easier at the aiport and on the wallet) for the short walk to the beach, with consistently surfable waves! Nice bathroom/shower(s) with hot water, were clean. A nice family atmosphere. WiFi was nice to have... More

I really love this place. The owner is awesome, that's Carol and the staff was so friendly. It is such a great price for what you get. THe grounds are so beautiful, flowers and fruit trees everywhere. Included in the very good price is free fruit, they put out on the kitchen counter: coconuts, star fruit, oranges, bananas, mangos, it's... More
