Location close to park and safe and convenient parking were real pluses. Nice pool & good breakfast. Rooms a bit tired, dark and small. Kitchenette was very handy. No light over bathroom sink and no hot water in sink--apparently a CR custom. Fair hot water in shower.

Great hotel for vacation on the Pacific ocean. The location is 5 minutes from the beach. Manuel Antonio national park is 5 minutes walk also. Several cabinas located around the swimming pool. The rooms have ketchenette equipped with coffee-maker, fridge, stove, sink and all the necessary crockery. Do not leave the fook on the counter, as thre are some ants... More

This is a nice place but the internet does not work while in your room. Which was not told to us prior to use getting the room. Also, they like to keep records of your credit card even if you are paying cash. We got a discounted rate (yay!) and they wanted to keep my friends credit card information though... More

We just stayed at Cabinas Espadilla in early July 2013. We hung our used wet bathing suits out to dry on the chairs outside our room. My wife's was there in the morning but mine was stolen. Inside our locked room my generic medication was taken from the bottle. I was able to replace it but the lack of trust... More

I stayed at the Cabinas Espadilla from March 1 to March 4, 2013. First off, the location's great, an eight-minute walk to Manuel Antonio National Park entrance, and it's a pleasant walk past other hotels or a small tourist shop here or there. There's also a short walk the other way to one of the many beaches in the area--you're... More

We stayed here 2 nights during the Easter Holidays, therefore it was actually too expensive (350 $ for 2 nights with 2 children). It is located at 150 m from the beach and 250 m from the entrance of the National Park which is great. There is a pool and you can use the pool of the hotel at the... More

A lovely place to stay, easy walk to the beach or the Manuel Antonio national park, a few minutes each. A good quality breakfast , sufficient food , but this was at the main hotel about 100 metres away, across a very quiet road- no problem. Helpful staff, nice small swimming pool, colourful plants all around and some iguana and... More
