We stay there for only one night, for $40 for a double room we had everything we needed: a clean room, nice bathroom with beautiful tiles, big shower with hot water, small fridge. Each room has a small terrace up front with 2 chairs, a small table, and a hammock. It has a beautiful garden inside the gate, so it... More

We found this little place by chance and were very surprised. For $44 for a double room we had everything we needed: a clean room just the right size, nice bathroom with beautiful tiles, big shower with hot water, small fridge, flat screen TV and a big quiet fan, shelves with plenty of space. Each room has a small terrace... More

The place outside looked really nice and is well done. You have very comfy hammocks outside of every room. We liked that. But inside the rooms it should be done a bit. The sheets where so old, and should be changed. Even if they might be washed it doesnt feel very nice. Also the moskito net is not long enough.... More

We stayed at Cabinas Tropical last December. The staff was very helpful & accommodating. Our room was impeccably clean when we arrived, & was kept that way daily by the friendly maid service. We rented bicycles in like-new condition from the hotel, which made us free to bike for a quick dip at Playa Negra, explore town, and ride the... More

My wife and I stayed in Cabinas Tropical in January 2014, We really enjoyed our stay and plan on coming back next year. The hotel is spotlessly clean. We enjoyed the tour at the jungle with Juana and Rolf, very kind people.

We stayed at the Cabinas Tropical for five days. We we're only supposed to stay for three nights but it was just such a nice place. The room was great, clean and huge. Haven't seen a bathroom this big any other place during three months of travelling. I have to say we stayed in one of the bigger upper rooms.... More

Beautiful walled garden courtyard with bananas, coconuts, flowers, birds and exotic frogs. Clean comfortable rooms with TV and frig. Bikes for rent. Close to beaches, beach trail to Cocles, bus stop, shopping and restaurants, yet not on the main road. I included (I hope)a photo of the nesting hummingbird near our room.
