I stayed here with my daughter's school. We were in CR for a 10 day tour. This was the worst of our hotels. The staff was unfriendly and the rooms were dirty. It was clear that they made a giant batch of rice and beans and served it to us for every meal. By breakfast on the last day, the... More

We regret what happened during your stay. We are working hard to avoid such problems with small animals in the area. We are in the tropics and is often very difficult to go against nature. As for breakfast we are evaluating the performance of our staff to improve every day. Many thanks for your comments and please accept our appologices More

Las Cabañitas, situated at La Fortuna’s eastern fringe provided a comfortable two-night stay in a neatly furnished unit situated in the far back corner of the property. Based on most other TA reviews, my stay was far better than expected. Walking to or from the town center is not easy, yet local taxis are readily available. On the other hand,... More

Juan Carlos is EXTREMELY friendly and gracious. No, this is not a five star resort, but the cabins are nice and clean. Breakfast was pretty good and the coffee was great. We stayed there two nights (because they were booked) and got along just fine.

Stayed here for 2 nights while in La Fortuna. My room was on the grubby side and consisted of a single queen bed. The room had an ant problem as I found a trail of ants in my luggage. The were also many annoying bugs in the room. The entire property is run down and in need of some help.... More

My family of 4 spent the night, along with my sister-in-law and her family. While the cabins were adorable, there was no hot water. We were given 2 thin towels and when I asked for 2 more, I was told "no." I can deal with that. My kids swam in the pool for about an hour. The next morning my... More

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
