I enjoyed my stay but do have a major quibble. While this hotel does provide hand soap and shampoo, unlike others in the area, it does not provide dish soap! However, there is a big sign saying you will be charged 100 pesos if you don't wash your dishes. When I commented on this, the person said I could go... More

Hello: Thank you for your comments. I would like to clarify that we always wash and sanitize the dishes and all the room before a new guest checks in. The policy of keeping the dishes clean while you are staying with us for a few nights is in order to avoid temporary plagues. That's all. Anyway, we will of course... More

My 4th year in de Guayabitos. 2nd year at Cabanas. A great place to experience life in small town Mexico. The units are efficient and clean. The staff is excellent and very friendly. The grounds are immaculate. 24 hour staff and night security. Owners live on site. A great place to make new friends and create memories with them as... More

When considering potential properties for future extended stays, we were able to quickly cross this one off the list... Owners have a large dark that they allow to bark continually throughout the day... So much for a peaceful setting!

Hello Thank you for your time writing your comments. Certainly, the great dane dog living in the penthouse room barks regularly (only during the day). Unfortunately, this is one of our few weaknesses compared to all the strengths we have. This dog only disturbs during the day and just in a little area of the property (not all). I would... More

Top marks for a budget hotel. Just the right amount of rustic charm . It's right on the beach. Most people staying here stay up to a couple of months. There are kitchens in most units. The one downside is most people book year to year. So could be difficult to get a roomA lot of retired people who come... More

We stayed here for 5 nights and it was a delightful little place to stay in Guayabitos. We stayed in a ground floor bungalow which had an outdoor kitchen and then the main room and bathroom were inside. So cute!! Our room had two queen beds and a bathroom and then shuttered windows that opened up to our kitchen area.... More

We had a great time here. We rented a room with an outdoor kitchen, primarily for the fridge to keep our cervesa cold. The property was very quaint. Don't stay here if you expect an American 4* feel. This is Mexico and the hotel is perfect. The location is situated in the best part of the beach and the beach... More

A well-managed property comprising a variety of rustic units – from the small room we rented to units with a kitchen and living area – all with the feel of a tree-house! This family-oriented hotel is located right in the heart of Guayabitos and on the beach. Very convenient for street food vendors, restaurants and night-life. Check-in and check-out were... More
