Great spot. We moved here from Martina's which was next door. She was charging $50 a night for the honeymoon suite. We stayed at Murillos for $35 with an amazing view and nicer room. They will help arrange tours and boat taxi.

I really wanted to stay here based on some amazing reviews. We stayed at ground level of the hotel. Their website primarily features the upper rooms which makes it very deceiving when booking. About the ground level rooms: there looks like there used to be real air conditioning, but all we had was a fan which only pushed the hot... More

Like other reviews state the view form the rooms slightly up the hill is amazing, we loved sitting out on the balcony staring out at the sea particularly during a massive rainstorm! Clean rooms, very quiet at night and only 5 mins walk from the couple of restaurants in Drake Bay. Didn't book any tours through the hotel but wish... More

The shower was always cold but in this heat, who cares-a cold shower hit the spot. The view was just what was needed and was appreciated with a couple of cold beers. The location was good as it was between the beach and town and the owners were nice. It even has wifi. The kitchen needs a bit of a... More

We got so lucky finding this on our adventure to Drake bay. We backpacked to sierpe river in hopes of showing up in Drake bay and finding a decent place to stay. One of the boat captains was arranging trips to drake and when we told him we didnt have a place to stay he called cabinas murillo for us... More

We stayed 2 nights in these Cabinas in an ocean view room. The view is wonderful and the price reasonable. There is no restaurant in the place but you are 5 minutes from the village center were you can eat or buy some food. Rooms are clean and the service very good, a nice place to stay while visiting Corcovado.... More

I can only speak for the rooms at the road level. They were pretty gross, overall. It was basically a big pale blue room with two beds. Nothing else. No chairs or desks or anything. Bathroom was a little sketchy and hot water was nonexistent. That said, I hear the rooms on the hill were a lot nicer, and the... More

Only stayed here a couple of nights but the dorms were clean, large, with lockers and the staff were friendly and helpful. It's located halfway between the town centre (which is tiny in itself) and the beach. Free wi-fi. Showers were supposed to have hot water but they were always cold, but really when it's as warm as it is... More

A note that I have read about the deluxe ocean-view cabins, which in hindsight sound really great, but at the time of my trip, not being willing to spend the $5 extra/person (I can be unreasonably stingy, I know), I talked my boyfriend and friend into sharing one of the large group rooms downstairs, which are $15/person. So, this review... More
