Breakfast was scrambled eggs, with patacones/some type of Spanish hash brown type thing and fresh sliced tomatoes with homemade feta cheese and they served it with olive oil and balsamic!... More

This is the cheapest place to stay in Cambutal for a reason. The double room we stayed in has a musky smell because it had no windows. There is a fan but the only way to air out the room is to have the doors open at all times which wasn't an option for evenings (bugs) and nights (sleeping). They... More

We really enjoyed our time here and were sad to leave. The rooms were thoroughly cleaned every day and were a perfect size for a couple. The views of the ocean are outstanding which you can watch from one of the many hammocks. Breakfast was great - a generous bowl of fresh fruit and coffee or tea with a view... More

When you are sitting in the morning in the hammock and listening to the sound of waves, you will simply be happy. The rooms are clean, very friendly owners...make sure you will go for a horse ride, its worth it, they will help you arrange it. Come before it becomes touristy.

Kambutaleko is exactly what I want in accommodations; simple, clean, and great views. Ion and Esther are fantastic hosts. The fresh fruit breakfast was a treat. I could have stayed for weeks. And if I find myself in that corner of the world again, there's no doubt where I'll stay. The driveway would be tough in the rain without 4wd.... More
