When we arrived to Cabinas Don Carlos, we were a bit astonished to see that it was someone's home. The room they gave us didn't include it's own private bathroom. The reservation said, most rooms with private bathroom. However we counted 7 rooms sharing 1 bathroom with a toilet, sink and shower. The room has AC and there was WiFi;... More

This place was friendly and clean! Great stop over for a night or two and away from the main street where it had way too much of a gringo theme. It's a very short walk to the beach. A safe area for parking too. We enjoyed our night here while beaching it!

As we see more hotels in Costa Rica, this one was between worse ones. For money you pay one would expect more. I review only downstairs room - Unfortunately we had room downstairs (full upstairs) and you can hear every step of your neighbours due to wooden floor. Staff is very helpful. Beach is close, but be sure you can... More

Carlos and Maria are people you must be careful of. At first they seemed very nice and helpful. I walked in with 3 of us total. We did not have anything booked and it was a high season weekend granted. Maria said she only had 2 night for us and that she would have to set up mattress in the... More

The owners Carlos and Maria are just robbers! They rent a house close to their hotel that we rented 2 weeks in july with a friend and our 3 children. They introduced in the house many times while we where at the beach and broke the robin in the kitchen. When we went to see them they were always busy... More

Cute hotel close to the beach and restaurants.There is an opening in the bathroom instead of an window, so there are a large number of ants in the room. Very clean with a nice balcony for relaxing in the evening. There is a locked gate at the front of the property to provide security when you are away. Great price... More

It was very reasonably priced and pretty clean. It is not a good place if you are backpacking alone or want a social environment, but if you are just going alone and need a cheap place to stay, it was very nice, and the staff was lovely, and it was right in the center of town! I would recommend it.
