The rooms were quite small but looked clean. Great location close to the beach, restaurants. There are two different locations, but both have a good location. Only when we wanted to check out there was no one. So we had to leave the key somewhere...

Cabinas 2 are literally two minutes away from the beautiful national park and the best beach in Cahuita. Very clean, secure, private parking, hot shower. It doesn't have a kitchen but Joyce, the owner will give you a kettle for your tea/coffee. Cabinas 1 are 7 mins away from beach, very nice rooms, private parking, comunal kitchen, internet. Both great... More

Very clean room with fan and hot shower situated almost at the entrance of Cahuita National Park. It is a secure place with private parking and the owner is so friendly, helpful and always with a big smile on her face. Definitely the best choice in Cahuita.

The owner is really nice and helpful. The rooms are very clean and with plenty of accessories: air con, fan, TV, frigde and hot water. Fantastic value for money. Probably the best we had in Costa Rica.

Well really, what more do you want when you are here to see the amazing wildlife. Somehow though, this laid back approach fits in very well with the town we were in; typically laid back Caribbean, with interesting 'reggae bars' where you can chill with great cocktails. The owner was friendly and the cabinas were located close to all amenities.... More

We stayed in the #1 cabinas, with fridge, wifi and aircon. Room was spacious and the room as well as the area around it was very clean. The owners were very nice and friendly people, very helpful when we needed urgent medical care for our baby and honestly concerned for his wellbeing afterwards. We stayed here for almost a week,...

Simple basic but clean and tidy rooms convenient to the centre of the small town. I stayed in Cabinas Smith 1, which I gather is the higher spec of the two sets of rooms on offer (1and 2). These rooms have fridges and air con. The owners are friendly and helpful if asked for assistance. The rooms are within easy... More

Cleaned rooms, very quiet, with A/C, with a garden and a private parking, 5 minutes away from the sea and the city center. We found a lot of nice restaurants around for breakfast, lunch and dinner . The managers are nice but not really helpful. Good value for money

I love Costa Rica, especially the Caribbean coast. I've traveled to the area several times and as a mature and experienced traveler in the region I can tell you this was the most disappointing experience I've had. Period. I hate leaving poor reviews because I know that families depend on word-of-mouth to make a living. However, in the interest of... More
