Great view of the volcano, very clean, attentive staff, and a price that couldn't be beat! The staff here are very helpful and will answer any questions you have and try to hook you up with tours or trips to the hot springs if you ask for assistance. In addition to the great view, you can see a fair amount... More

Very nice people; low rates, clean and sensible apartments. Good in terms of closeness to varous parks and other attractions. Quiet; there is a nice little pond and garden behind the cottages. The view to Arenal is quite a thing!

Wow! First of all try not to visit Costa Rica during Easter holiday, its crazy busy and finding a hotel is extremely difficult! This place was one of few that actually had a couple of rooms available during our visit. For the price this place is not too shabby. These are family owned cabins that a fairly well maintained.

We had a terrific stay here with our family of four - two adults, two late teens. We stayed in one cabin, three beds. We dealt with some ants, and the beds could have been more comfortable. But this is Costa Rica (our second trip), and for our money, Cabinas Los Guayabos was a terrific choice. The view of the... More

We very much enjoyed our three day, two night stay at this small hotel. We arrived several hours before check-in time and they allowed us to check in immediately which allowed us to unload our car and take advantage of our travel day as a sight seeing day without worrying about guarding our luggage in the car. The service was... More

We rented two cabins for two nights. The service was very friendly, and the breakfast ($3 per person) was wonderful too. The rooms are basic but very clean and we had a great view of Arenal volcano from the back porch! The staff speak limited English so a knowledge of Spanish could be helpful, but we spoke hardly any Spanish... More

Cabinas Los Guayabos was much simpler than other places we stayed at in Costa Rica but was clean and pleasant. It is right on the highway but the noise didn't penetrate at night. Breakfast was included and was a good basic meal. There was wifi service in the main building but not in the rooms. The volcano loomed over us.... More

this is a less expensive place and one without a many frills. The bathrooms aren't too beautiful, and the rooms could use a little spiffing up- but the owners are incredibly nice, the place is immaculate, the beds are very comfortable (but they could use mattress pads and screens on the windows) there is a little patio with a view...

These are very basic cabins, but clean as can be. Ours had a/c and a TV with quite a lot of channels. The bathroom was large, and the shower was huge. The beds were extremely comfortable. Wi-fi is available at the reception area, and we used that several times each day. Breakfast is available in the reception building for about... More

I know Karen the owner and this place is my must stop everytime I'm in Costa Rica. Not only is everything SUPER clean you also have the best view around and the breakfast is awesome. Best thing to do is get some ice and a bottle of rum and just watch the volcano at night. :)
