Good price for a very charming place to stay! Great service and the food was wonderful! It was the best place we had stayed in so far and we had been to many hotels and hostels that were more expensive. None were equally as enjoyable. I did not want to leave.

I arrived today at Cabinas Cristina and Eduardo, the host, made me feel at home in no time. I could use the laundry facilities at no extra cost and enjoy the lovely surroundings to rest and regroup after a bad experience in Delicias de Montezuma. I lucked out because not only I felt like I arrrived in a welcoming family... More

My gf and I enjoyed our stay at this family-run inn so much. The rooms are clean and comfy, the food is very good and the service is impecable. The entire family - and especialy Eguardo (Jr.) was truly helpful with tours and transport. Go to this place if in Tambor and if you want a local feeling!

I stopped at Cabinas Cristina after a very long day of driving around the back roads of lower Nicoya. It was in the very muggy time leading up to rainy season, so I went a nicer room with AC. The AC sort of worked, but not very well - I didn't sleep all that well. The lamp by the bed... More

Our group of 9 people enjoyed a lovely dinner at Restaurant Cristina. Eduardo was a wonderful host, and Cristina's home-cooked meals were delicious! (We had amazing guacamole, the special fish and chicken of the day, and a wonderful panna cotta with passion fruit sauce for dessert.) Eduardo also took the time to show us around the hotel, which looked simple,... More

What is so charming about this place is the family that runs it, Cristina's fabulous cooking,the costa rican atmosphere, the reasonable prices, the pleasant staff and the proximity to the beautiful tambor beach. My friend and i bought a fresh sea bass at the fisherman's pier and asked Cristina if she could cook it for us. It was a feast!!!... More

We visited last year but loved it so much we returned again this year. We stayed in a different room which was very nice. It's a great place with wonderful people! Cristina makes the BEST casados and both Eduardos are so nice. You couldn't find a better place. Go to Montezuma, Curu, Cabo Blanco, etc!

We originally planned on staying one night and stayed 3. The family are very friendly and the restaurant was great. Loved that it was quiet and only a block from the ocean and a long beach. The family were all very helpful and helped us get a snorkelling tour as well as a rental vehicle. We loved it there and... More

Christina is a very good place with charming people. We visited the restaurants 3 times and enjoyed the atmosphere, the fresh sea food. The pricing was very reasonable. This family run business makes you feel at home, the kids all played together.
