Very clean and basic room. Enjoyed a corner room with private outdoor seating area. Refrigerator and a/c were a plus. Best feature of this hotel was location. 1 minute to beach (with private walkway) and 2 minutes to entrance of Manual Antonio Park. The grounds are beautiful with a lovely pool and many private outdoor seating areas. Loved seeing squirrel... More

We were guests at Cabinas Espadilla for four nights in March 2014. We learned of Cabinas Espadilla from our trip planner Pura Vida! Eh? (who we highly recommend, by the way). We had some concerns about Cabinas Espadilla based on some negative reviews we had seen online, but our experience was very positive, and we would recommend this property to... More

Where we had originally planned to stay was booked. A local, Giovanni, from Raphael's told us about this gem. The location couldn't be better as it is located across the street from the beach and practically next door to Manual Antonio State Park. The beaches are incredible with an array of things available to do. You can choose from SUPs,... More

The hotel is located about half way between the entrance to the national park and a great beach with all the amenities. A very easy walk to either one. Beautiful, clean pool right outside your room with warm water (about 90 degrees) that felt wonderful after a day at the beach or the park. The cabin we had was a... More

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.

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
