Just went to Cabinas Jimenez back in March and had a great time with the family. The owner and Ronny at the front desk went out of their way to make sure we were happy. My 6 year old son and I had a blast on the kayak and fishing from the shore. The macaws and other wildlife were amazing.... More

We enjoyed the facility, location, amenities and price but had to move rooms 3 times as the bar across the water played exceptionally loud, thumping music until 4 am. There wasn't anyone in the bar most of the time which leads me to believe it will resolve itself - or may have already as we were there mid April. I... More

Its in a beautiful location on the water, and right on the edge of town so incredibly chilled out, but also really handy to get anywhere for food / drinks etc. Great wee pool area to lounge by.

If you're traveling to the Osa, you have to stop in Cabinas Jimenez. Owned by a guy named John, who's been there for I believe 20 years. He is one of the kindest gentleman you could encounter. He's also built/renovated the nicest hotel in Puerto Jimenez. Right on the water and on the edge of town. You can walk to... More

If you stay in the town of Puerto Jimenez I recommend staying at this place. Good location on the bay and easy to get around town. Free bikes and kayaks was a big plus. The fantastic little pool area which was a great place to relax, cool down, and meet other guests. I stayed the first two nights in 'Rancho... More

Stayed here for a few days. Casual and fun and not too touristy. It's not the ritz, but for local flavor, it's perfect. Loved that they supplied free kayaks and bikes to get around on water or land. Staff helpful in locating and booking excursions. They even came and found us to notify us that our guides had arrived and... More

After all positive comments I read, I expected much more! The staff is very lousy, when we arrived we had the impression to disturb the guy at the reception. The rooms are small with bad aircon, the a/c is located in the bathroom! The deposit is located under the sink and behind the door, very unpleasant to get access to... More
