We always rent bikes for our stay in PV. It makes a trip to the beach, store, Punta Uva etc so much easier. Now there are new bikes to rent right at Cabinas Tropical. So much easier than renting and returning during the hours of operation of the bike shop. Every day they were cleaned and maintained, so important in... More

We feel lucky to have a room here during the Easter weekend. The beach towns will be packed. It is always wonderful to stay in this convenient location, close to the stores and a few minutes from swimming at Playa Negra or off the point right in town. Rolf and Juana are always so gracious and helpful. We feel secure... More

We liked the look of Cabanas Tropical and were planning on staying there for a week or more. However after we had waited half the morning for our room (the room was empty and available but the owner wouldn't let us in before check in time), we weren't so sure we had made the right choice. We then went to... More

We spent three nights at Cabinas, and had a great time. The grounds are spectacular and the hosts are very kind. The rooms are clean and comfortable. The hotel is far enough away so as to not be disturbed by city noise. We also had a the privilege of seeing monkeys in the far off tree tops...You will not get... More

We traveled from Tamarindo to Puerto Veijo. Sometimes you are not sure when you get a referral for a place to stay. Cabinas Tropical was a WINNER!!!! Super Clean, in the center of the beach community. It is only a few hundred steps to the water (walk everywhere) a great value, including safe parking. Thanks again and we will refer... More

Very secure, very clean, very pleasant, but above all, we found the owner, Rolph, to be so helpful. Examples? 1- We planned a two-day field trip to Yorkin (highly recommended) and he immediately offered to keep our luggage free while we were away. 2- We wanted to reach La Fortuna in one day from Puerto Viejo. He suggested we take... More

We have been staying at Cabinas Tropical a few times a year for over ten years. What a treat to look forward to! Two blocks from great restaurants, the Saturday morning organic market, the daily specials at the Italian gelato joint by the bus stop. We rent bikes and are at black beach morning and afternoon. Catch the bus to... More

The hotel which is run by a nice german biologist and his wife is very nice. We stayed there for 2 days and the owner helped us with planning our tours in puerto viejo and chauita. The only disadvantage was that the room was abit un-ventilated.

We stayed at Cabinas Tropical because of a recommendation. It was well worth it. Off the main road it was quiet, which was very important for us. The hotel is very well looked after. We especially recommend doing a jungle tour with the owners, Rolf and Juana. We have never seen a person equal to Juana in spotting animals. We... More

I really enjoy being so near to town (yet not on the main street), the restaurants, the buses to Cahuita and Manzanillo. We always rent bikes for easy beach access and trips to the stores. The staff is well treated - as indicated by how long they stay! Rolf and Juana are a great resource for trips near and far... More
