Cute little individual cabins and a swimming pool. We visited off season and unfortunately the pool was not clean, really disapointing as the weather was still good enough to use it! The best part was the view from my porch... In the evening we had a beautiful sunset over Arenal Volcano whilst it was pouring with rain and a double... More

This is a very cute hotel, located slightly outside the city centre but easily in walking distance. There were twin room chalets each with a porch and a rocking chair outside. Rooms were clean and looking at past reviews on TripAdvisor, many people said there were stains on the bed, but I found nothing but clean sheets and from the... More

My son traveled to Costa Rica with a tour group and had the misfortune of staying at Las Cabanitas for two nights. He said the flowers were pretty, but that does not make up for the fact that his tablet, along with some school-issued iPads and other assorted devices, were stolen from his room. The kids were swimming at the... More

The hotel looks nice from the outside, but I wouldn't stay there again. The comforters and sheets on our beds had gross stains and did not appear to have been washed. We got locked in our room when the key would not open the lock from the inside, which clearly happened a lot because the screen on the window had... More

The grounds of this hotel are beautiful, as are the facades of the cabins that you stay in. Unfortunately, the accommodations inside have seen better days. They are older and in need of renovations and better upkeep. I was traveling with a group, and one of our rooms had so many bugs in it that they had to come in... More

I stayed at this hotel on a tour group while touring Costa Rica. The concept of the hotel is cute, and the staff is very friendly, but there is many things wrong with this property. First, let's start with the pool. It is really nice, but the deck needs to be resurfaced, as it is easy to cut yourself or... More

They had many wooden houses used as the rooms for guests. There were a lot of space inside the house that we could place our stuff. However, Don't forget to close every door before you come in the bedroom because you might encounter with mosquitoes at night. You can see Arenal Volcano distinctly from the hotel. Most of hotels in... More

Excellent facility enjoyed the entire time we were there. Cabins are perfect size with air conditioning in the cabins. The pool was nice for the cool down after a long day out on excursions. Breakfasts in the morning at the hotel were great bonus to the stay. Service was great and friendly.

We really enjoyed our stay at the Cabanitas. The landscaped grounds were just beautiful. Our cabin was nicely done...we saw some that were much nicer. My only complaint is that we didn't have windows or screens in our cabin (just wood shudders). The room didn't feel very secure and, although not as buggy as many places in Costa Rica, we... More

I stayed in this hotel for two nights. On the outside it is absolutely beautiful--very green and scenic with local wildlife. Our room was basic, except we had a coffee maker without coffee, we had no hot water (we had to go to our friends' rooms!!), and the internet and TV didn't work (not that we particularly cared, but for...
