4 of 5 stars Reviewed 6 days ago NEW

The staff were friendly and accommodating. The room was large enough but a little outdated. The location was ideal - only a 3 minute walk to the nearest beach and restaurants, as well as a 5 minute walk (at most) to the national park. Breakfast, served across the street at the hotel, was very good.

The cabinas are the cheaper sister to the Hotel of same name but we liked the cabinas better - they were laid out in gardens, very relaxed and nice pool. You can walk to the hotel for happy hour and brekkie (included in price as in most hotels in country.) A short walk to the National Park which was wonderful... More

The hotel was nice and the breakfast was really good. They have a nice pool with a swim up bar. My only complaint is that the wifi is basically non-existent in the rooms, you pretty much have to use it in the common areas.

Really nice place for a vacation getaway... We enjoyed lot our stay. The place was really good for a weekend getaway. We did enjoy being in the cabin because we had all amenities that are needed. The best is having everything nearby. The Manuel Antonio Nation Park was so near that we didn't use the car during the weekend. Price,... More

We stayed in the cabinas because there were no rooms left in the hotel. The cabinas had a small kitchen which we did not use for cooking, but did use the refrigerator for keeping water and coconut cold. The rooms were average but adequate. The shower was hot and the pool was nice and warm. The grounds were nice to... More

We stayed at Cabinas Espadilla 3 days with a family of four. The location of Cabinas Espadilla is is superb - 5 minutes walking from the entrance to the Manuel Antonio national park, two minutes from the beach! Some cabins have kitchenettes and open up to a shared patio, some don't. It can get noisy with Costa Rican families chatting... More

This hotel provides great affordable options in the heart of Manuel Antonio. I found the room well apportioned with a kitchenette, refrigerator, well working AC and great bathroom. The hotel is only a short walk from the beach, national park and bus station to Quepos. The hotel has well maintained grounds with a beautiful pool. They also offer a great... More
