Recommended by a friend that lives just a little outside of town. The rooms are spacious and clean. The one we had, I'm sorry I can't remember the number, had a tiny refrigerator in it. Great for purchasing out own fruits and yogurts for the morning breakfast. It also had a coffee maker in it. All the rooms surrounding the... More

Beautiful location with a cozy, personal, unique touch to each room. I think the hotel is UNDER-PRICED.... GREAT STAFF!!! I got to know each of them on a first name basis. Very friendly, knowledgeable, and accommodating. The dolphin tour on the "La Sirena" was amazing. Highly recommend going on that tour with Osa Wildlife Sanctuary added on. Walking distance to...

Overpriced for the quality of rooms and customer service was poor. Often nobody was at the front desk and more than once we rang the bell with nobody showing up. The most frustrating part was the photos displayed of people riding on whale sharks at the front desk, which is not legal in Costa Rica. The manager admitted they allow... More

As far as being overpriced, where can you stay at a clean,Waterfront Hotel, with hot water, A.C., coffee makers, T.V., WiFi, a swimming pool and the free use of Kayaks and Bikes for $ 50 a night, for two persons.? My Manager and I do not encourage people to swim with Whale sharks or Dolphins. And yes, it is illegal,... More

We enjoyed the rugged countryside of the Osa Peninsula area and the warm hospitality we received at Cabinas jimenez, right on the water, a couple of blocks from the center of town. Great modern accommodations with A/C and a big satelite flat screen TV, comfortable bed, kayaks to borrow, and cute little pool to paddle around in, and walking distance... More

Super service. The owner is incredibly nice, helped us get to the airport after our taxi failed to arrive on time. Super place for birding, awesome view of the beach (PLUS: FREE bikes and kayaks! $$$value). CLEAN. And there are super cute puppies to brighten your sunny day. :-) 5+/5, easily

Our welcome was a drunk owner. Rooms on the street side are like a cage. Price is too high. If you are going there take a room close to the pool or the beach. Bad experience but the location is beautiful

We stayed on the upper floor of the ocean view room the first night and it was fantastic. We were moved to the room below after our hike to La Sirena. Not as nice but not bad. John was really helpful with directions but beware the roads are very bumpy and driving takes longer than you think it will. The... More

I had the pleasure of staying at Cabinas Jimenez at the beginning of this year. I had an excellent room just off the pool. John and his staff helped me in so many ways, a real pleasure to work with. The location is so nice...right on the water and such an easy walk into the main part of town. I... More
