If you're looking to spend your time on a hammock, taking in the sound of the waves and ocean breeze, this is the place to stay at in Tortuguero. The value is great at Cabinas El Icaco, the room was ok, but why would you want to stay in the room when in Tortuguero. Would definitely recommend!

Excellent location on the beach, friendly/helpful staff (don't speak much english however). Rooms/ensuite basic but clean. Wifi and hammocks were good. We had breakfast here one morning and it was basic but done well (Coffee, toast, scrambled egg, butter, marmalade and plate of fresh watermelon and pineapple).

Nice an relaxed place. The rooms are big and clean. Good location, right on the beach. Lots of restaurants close by, but the way there is rather dark and can be a bit scary if you walk just by yourself. The owners/employees where nice and helpful as well

I stayed here in 2012 with my husband and son, and returned last week with friends and family. We had another great stay. Tortuguero is an adventure in life - and this little comfortable place is part of it! I like it, I am a return customer, and would return again. It is NOT for the pampered, spoiled type of... More

Lovely accommodation - good-sized rooms and great communal area with hammocks and wifi access. Cabinas staff were friendly and helpful. Right next to a beautiful beach. Less than 5 minute walk to centre of village and restaurants so peaceful and quiet at night. Would stay again. No air-con so rooms can get very hot.

If you are looking for a nice place without spending too much, this is the place to be! The Cabinas are about 5min walking from the center and right at the beach. So you here the waves the whole night, which is great. The rooms are small bit have everything you need and are very clean. The shower is also... More

Stayed here for three nights in march, very friendly very helpful family, the guides here are also excellent. The rooms are basic but clean and made up everyday. This hotel is metres from the beach front. Breakfast good value and tasty.

For what you get we thought our room was a bit overpriced, it would be more reasonable value if breakfast was included in the rate. We've paid less for better rooms in Costa Rica. Nonetheless, we had a good stay. Room was really clean, everything worked well. Cleaned daily & given fresh towels. Note to the staff- please don't move... More

I've just spent four nights here, I booked three at first but extended as it was so good. The location is great....right on the beach of the roaring Carib. Town is only a five minute walk away but maybe bring rucksacks not wheeled trolleys as tarmac is rare & surfaces uneven. The rooms are basic but kept clean & there... More
