The location is great with the surf break La Lora a short walk just over the road. There's a free pool table and free coffee is available from reception. The room was very basic and the hotel just felt a little worn and could have done with a bit of a tidy up/room repainted. Our room was cleaned everyday though.... More

We've been there for one month. An amazing atmosphere , great location for surfers right in front of the La Lora beach. Loyal and reachable staff. Highly recommended. Don't worry for dining issue... There's a good restaurant with an amazing traditional food. Stay there and you'll find everything! Food,fun,music, great people...!

I've stayed at Cabinas for 7 weeks and it was amazing. Amir and idan, the owners, make you feel not like a costumer but as a friend and part of the Cabinas family!!! The place is known for its special energy and, off curse, for its surf point - llalora beach. My recommendation for all is: you must come visit... More

A bit far away from "town" but perfect location if u there for the waves. Quite simple rooms but well worth the money! Would definitely stay here again if I went... More

My friend and I got there on a quiet day. We were lucky to score the king suite located in a little tower, overlooking the whole hostel.
