I loved this place and really enjoyed my stay. Beautiful location, quiet and relaxing, easy walk to everything, great service. While traveling in Costa Rica, I stayed in four different hotels in this price range, and this was the best. Highly recommended...definitely a bargain.

The location is excellent. A short walk to the Manuel Antonio Park. Yafat at the front desk goes over and above to accommodate your needs. Also they have a great restaurant and pool with bright coloured cabinas. Cabinas Espadilla meets your needs, when visiting Manuel Antonio..

This hotel is a bit on the modest side, but quite comfortable and the location just about cannot be beat. We stayed here two nights when we came to the park.

This was a great little reasonably priced place to stay within walking distance of the park entrance and the restaurants near the beach. Good service, nice pool, set back from the road. Breakfast is across the street at the Espadilla Hotel. We really liked the location. Room was basic, nothing fancy. Would be good for a family. Howlers started howling... More

The hotel is well situated, near the entrance of the park. Unfortunately, the rooms are very small (2 adults, one baby), but they have a kitchenette with fridge. All the rooms are situated next to the pool. Not much privacy because the pool is not far from the main gate and the road. Very helpfull staff. Breakfast is served in... More

We spent several days at Cabinas Espadilla over New Year’s Eve. It has a basic layout but the bougainvillea, lush greenery, arches, fountain, pool, and terra cotta roof give it that Central American charm. The room was fine and even had a decent sized refrigerator. The shower wasn’t great but it was functional. Unfortunately, the windows are slotted, which means... More

Unfortunately, we were in a bind to find a place and wound up here. We paid more than any other place in Costa Rica for a tiny, dilapidated room that smelled like mildew, had windows that wouldn't shut, and was very loud with sounds of noisy neighbors coming through the walls. The bed was very uncomfortable on top of it... More
