“Love it!”
Reviewed August 5, 2008

I have stayed at these cabinas three times, and it's always a good experience. There's hot water, a refrigerator, and it's clean. The pillows could be better, but hey -- it's cheap and clean! The fan works, and there's good ventilation. All in all, I'd recommend this highly for anyone.

  • Liked — Cheap and clean!
  • Disliked — No view or pool, but the ocean's steps away.

I used to live in Costa Rica (2002-2006) but had never stayed in Cahuita before. I was travelling with three other people on this trip. I booked this through a Tico friend. There are two Cabina's Smith - we stayed at the one closer to the main street (further from the beach) - but I think the same people own both places. The hosts were helpful and friendly and spoke English (not necessary for us since I speak Spanish, but just adding this for people who may not speak Spanish). The rooms were simple, but clean and adequate. We paid $13 a person. We had two rooms - each had a single and a double bed - but we just had two people in each room - so I felt it was a fair price ($26 a night). From what I understood $26 is the flat rate for a room and you pay more if you have more than two people. Our biggest complaint was the rooster who woke up some of the group during the night.
