Got a very nice and warm welcome from the manager Amir who came and meet me when I arrived. The staff was very helpful and the atmosphere was great! 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. Amir and Idan are two laid back guys who dont hesitate to make your holidays the best ever. For my part that was lenting me a ladder to harvest coconuts, letting me raise... More

We stayed at las cabinas for two weeks at the beginning of our travels and returned for two weeks at the end. It became our home away from home in Central America. We camped and the prices were fair and the people were friendly. Just counting down the days until we can go back.

Fair prices, nice place, great ambiance, and great service. The place is located right next to the most popular location for surfing in Santa Teresa. Even if you don't surf, its a great place to relax, and view the most beautiful sunsets. Thank you Cabinas Playa!

Private and doorms with fan or AC, There's a kitchen with everything you need and most important - Idan, the owner is amazing, will help you with really every question or need you'll have. Really recommended!!!

You couldn't get a closer spot to the best surf break on the beach which was perfect for my boyfriend who went out every day and had some great waves. Our room had a balcony which had a lovely view of the garden. Unfortunately this place is let down by a few things we were expecting after reading their website... More
