For us, this place was very relaxing and enjoyable. It was low-key (not fancy, just nice), clean, quiet, and well kept. The bathroom was small, but sufficient. We had a little kitchenette, which was a dated, but perfectly fine. (We were happy to have a fridge!) We had a little area out back that we shared with just one other... More

Location can't be beat! 5 minute walk to the entrance of Manuel Antonio National Park & 2 minute walk to the beach! Best breakfast we had in our stay in Costa Rica. Breakfast is at the sister hotel which is right across the street. The restaurant there is very good as well. Pricier than the other restaurant across the street,... More

The cabinas are very small for 4 people. There is not really place for luggage. They have a kitchen (not really necessary for us, expect the fridge) and a place to hang up your wet clothes. They're very close to the beach (1 min. to walk) and they take care about the garden and the rooms. The breakfast is in... More

As other reviewers have pointed out the location is very good. It is just a short stroll through the hotel garden to the beach and close to the National Park entrance. The cabins are near a pleasant swimming pool and the gardens are well tended and pleasant. My first impression of the cabin we were allocated was that it was... More

Literally 5 minute walk to the naional park and beach. Staff and rooms nice, good tv:) and beautiful- overall great! Breakfast is by their neighboring hotel a 1 minute walk which did not have anything great for breakfast but the place itself is worth it to stay by because other places we checked out were nastyyy

We stayed here for 4 nights on a recent trip and don't think the location (200m from the beach one way and Manuel Antonio Natonal Park the other) could be bettered. The friendly helpful staff (hi Leo), the pool and gardens and the breakfast over at their sister hotel (only a coupla minutes away but I think the cabinas are... More

This hotel is located just outside the Manuel Antonio National Park and was the reason we stayed here for three days recently. We booked the cabins instead of the main hotel as they are situated closer to the beach, however, the rooms in the hotel appeared to be more modern and the extra walk to the beach was minimal. We...

Room was a little cramped for 4 people, but location was great, awesome that it has a kitchenette, and staff was friendly. Price is a pretty good value. Clean and comfortable, nice pool. Adequate, in all regards.

The main attraction of Las Cabinas Espadilla is the great location between the beach & the National Park. Our room was clean with a comfortable bed but it would have benefited from some renovation. The fridge was very useful but we would also have liked a night table. I tended to wake up very early as the room was so... More

If you want a hotel right on the beach and near the park in Manuel Antonio, this is a great option. The price was a good value for the location, and the rooms and service were both above par. The room was well lit and the air conditioner worked very well. Beds were clean and comfortable, and the kitchenette was... More
