Cabinas Espadilla

Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 27 August 2017

For visiting National Park Manuel Antonio this place was ideal. The service was excellent, excursions were offered, everything was clean, a nice pool was just in front of the rooms. In the morning you save a lot of time, as the park is extremely close to the cabinas. Also the beach is within a short walking distance.

We liked our stay there. We had two rooms, each one with a kitchen. The pools were very nice, the Wifi was in a good quality. Many "dragons" at the pool, seems that they are fed by the guests. Big rooms, good beds, nice bathroom.
The breakfast was ok, pancakes were weak and the people are definetely not used to a group when someone is delayed. We had to tell the waiters twice that the last person needs a card, fruits, a juice etc.
We took the laundry service and they were able to do it very quickly which we highly appreciated.

Hello Jerome,

Thank you very much for your comments. We will put special attention to what happened with the waiter and the quality of the pancakes, so it would never happen again.

We are glad you had an efficient laundry service.

Regards,

Milena

My family and I stayed here in mid-July for 4 nights. We found our cabina to be comfortable and clean. The outside seating area was a nice bonus. Breakfast in the mornings was very good. The proximity to the park and Quepos is super nice. There's even a path to the beach from the parking area.

When we arrived the staff helped us get our luggage inside during a torrential downpour. Then, when they found out we had to check out before the office opened, they arranged for a take-away breakfast to be made the night before. Little niceties like that go a long way when traveling.

I am traveling in Costa Rica with students on an extended study abroad. For the past three nights we have stayed at Cabinas espadille.
The good points: property is beautifully landscaped, two small pools. Restaurant food and service is very good.
The cabins, ah, the cabins. Very tiny, especially for four people.Very little insulation, so any sound from outside is heard, especially the noise from the bar directly across the street. No wifi, although it is advertised. No hot water, ever. No water one morning. No electrical power for one morning. Very basic bed, shower. Toilet smelled unpleasant all of the time. Limited to one towel per person, one pack of coffee per room. Front desk staff very unpleasant and difficult to work with.
For a cheaper price, this might be acceptable, but the cost is the same as other local luxury hotels- I personally went to each one and checked out rooms and cost. Will not stay here again.

Room Tip: Choose another hotel.

Dear guest DocTK,

We are happy you liked our property and are grateful about you comentary. Due to the fact, the owners decided to make a remodelation for almost all the cabinas. We´ve just started the rebuild and we are very exited to share it. New queen size beds are installed instead of two double beds, so cabinas have now more space, some windows are relocated to prevent the noise issue.

Regarding the power electricity fail, I have to explain that Manuel Antonio is a touristy village but a bit remote, therefore it is common to have electric cuts and obviously if there is no electric fluid, there is no WIFI, is not in our hands, but our apologies ...

We will give special atention with a view to raise our service in both, cleaning and recepction.

You notes are well received, always with the aim of improving.



Thank you very much.

Milena.

This hotel has two buildings - the Cabinas and the Hotel. We stayed in the Cabinas (across the street from the hotel) with our two small kids (ages 6 and 9) in February. The cabinas and the hotel are in a perfect location - just steps away from the beautiful beach and steps away from the entrance to Manuel Antonio National Park. It was exactly in the location that we were hoping for. The cabinas has one small pool and the hotel has one pool with a bar. You have access to both. The rate also included a decent breakfast every morning. The staff was very kind and accommodating.

The room at the Cabinas had two full size beds, a tiny kitchen and a small bathroom. We don't have a problem with booking one room for all four of us since our kids are still small, but my one issue with the cabinas was that the rooms were extremely small. So small that we had nowhere to put our two large suitcases. They ended up on the ground and then made it hard for us to walk around the room. I'm not sure if the rooms are bigger in the hotel side but that would be something I would explore if I considered this place again. If we would have brought smaller bags, it would have been fine.

I don't think I would stay in the Cabinas again given the same room accommodations for four, but the location was perfect, so it all depends on what you're looking for.

Room Tip: If you are a family with two kids I would definitely explore other options - perhaps at the hotel. T...
