Sunsets and food and generous Wine are Great! Staff is very accomodating, even so far as having plenty of Misquito Spray for sunsets watching. Didn't sttay here,was just down the beach at private residence, but they were very inviting! Would stay in Cabinas if I didnt have a place. Convenient locale. Clean, and manicured

We arrived to find we should... More

Nice place in front of the beach. Good food, not too expensive. Good value for money for Costa Rica. More Canadian than local food though: good choice of buns, pizzas, salads but also fish dishes
