We just got back from Costa Rica. We stayed at Cabinas Jimenez for two weeks and just loved it. It is the 5th or 6th time we have been there over a ten year period. John the owner just keeps making it better and better. The swimming pool was new to us and it was great. Our room had a... More

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

I have mixed feelings about reviewing Cabinas Jimenez on TripAdvisor. On the one hand, I truly think that Cabinas Jimenez may be one of the best values in Costa Rica or anywhere else. On the other hand, I am afraid that this jewel might become over-run like Costa Rica has become over the years. Everyone at Cabinas Jimenez is first... More

Stayed for 2 nights & had a wonderful time. Tom at reception was extremely helpful & provided his own personal tour for us which was probably the best thing we did in all of Costa Rica. Free use of the Kayaks was also great. The rooms are clean & comfortable & having a fridge was a bonus. Pool was also... More

A fantastic place to stay in Cabinas Jimenez! I needed a place to stay before and after my 3D/2N hike into Corcovado Park and was recommended by the tour organizer themselves (as well as rave reviews from this site) to stay here. John, the owner, was very kind in giving me a free room upgrade on my first night, where... More

We recently stayed here and found the rooms to be clean and comfortable and the staff great. Spring for a poolside room or one of the cabinas with an ocean view. AC worked fine and there was a microwave, fridge and coffee pot (with coffee and filters provided). John the owner was very personable and helpful as were all the... More

It met our family’s needs for 3 nights: 1. Wonderful View from our deck: we stayed upstairs. I enjoyed sunrise with my tea 2. Two-bedroom unit: perfect for our family and the rate was reasonable 3. AC: bonus for my husband as we were there during some hottest days 4. Tentative owner: John seemed to always fix and improve things.... More
