We stayed in one of the rooms with shared bathroom, but since it is low season we share with max. one more room. Leaving the room leads right to a balcony that faces the forest, very relaxing and idyllic. The only sound you hear is the nature. The owners offer every tour you can imagine and even set you up...

I stayed three days in Cabinas Manolo. The place is absolutelly amazing. Nice for relax, clean and they offer all the possible tour with good price. If I have to highlight something is the staff there. They are always available for help and always smiling. They collect me and drop me from the beach so I didn't have to carry... More

Me and my boyfriend stayed here for 4 nights in a basic double bedded room with shared bathroom. Our stay here was full of pleasant surprises starting with the pick up from the wet landing on the beach! We had no idea and were expecting to have to walk or take a taxi to find the hotel! The bedroom was... More

In August 2014 we stayed 2 nights at Cabinas Manolo. This place was perfect! We felt very welcome and the atmosphere is so relaxed. The owners, Sergio and Rosanna, are extremely friendly and hospitable. They arranged for us an amazing day trip to Corcovado, by boat, with a guide (to the Sirena station, where we saw a lot of animals... More

We stayed 3 nights at Cabinas Manolo. The staff went above and beyond to pick us up from the boat, describe the many tour options, and always made sure our previous night was enjoyable. The accommodations were basic, but very clean. We stayed in a room without a bathroom, although full service rooms are available. The dining room was an... More

We stayed there one night. The staff is very nice, and the place is very clean. However, we hardly slept because of the poor mattress. It was completely used. I wrote a comment in the special form they have to leave comments. Hopefully they will change them soon. Otherwise, the place is nice, clean and well located.

Drake bay is a nice small village, and Cabinas Manolo is located close to the center. We made our booking early, so we could go the Corcovado. Cabinas Manolo suggested we should book a whale tour as well, which we deed. Upon arrival they said the whale tour was fully booked, why did they never say something about that to... More
