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

Hotel is nice, it looks great and you can use bikes and cano for free. Their tour option is pour, they just contact any of the local offices which you can find easily yourselfe. Our shower had 2 out of 3 nights only cold water. WiFi is not reliable! Pool is very small but very Nice, more a big jacuzzi... 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

We very much enjoyed our stay in our small but clean rooms with A/C off the pool area. There were lots of Macaws about, my daughter loved the pool and we all enjoyed the landscaping and harbor view. The iguana feeding by the pool was a special treat. It was easy to walk to anywhere in the town. The staff... More

Variety of rooms to fit all budgets, a lovely pool and free wifi, bikes and kayaks. I rode to a great beach (Iguana Lodge beach) and kayaked at night into the sunset through the mangroves - unbeatable. The rooms are comfortable, have fan or A/C, a fridge and coffee maker as well as plates and cutlery should you want to... More

Walking distance to downtown PJ. Overlooks the Golfo Dulce. Excellent staff (a lovely young lady named Annie) helped us set up fishing with some local guides. They're receptive to unusual requests (e.g. can you store this fish in your refrigerator overnight?) and helpful all around.

This past February 2015 was our first stop in Puerto Jimenez and thanks to the reviews posted on Trip Advisor - we chose this place. We cannot say enough about John and his passion of preserving the real culture of the area. The art work in the rooms and the friendly staff made our stay a perfect 10! We are... More

We spent two nights in this hotel, before and after our hike in the Corcovado National Park. It is very close to the main street but peaceful, quiet and by the water. The room was pretty small but very nice, the bathroom very clean and the shower worked well. The staff was very nice too, they gave us some kayaks... More
