This is a nice place but the internet does not work while in your room. Which was not told to us prior to use getting the room. Also, they like to keep records of your credit card even if you are paying cash. We got a discounted rate (yay!) and they wanted to keep my friends credit card information though...

We just stayed at Cabinas Espadilla in early July 2013. We hung our used wet bathing suits out to dry on the chairs outside our room. My wife's was there in the morning but mine was stolen.

I stayed at the Cabinas Espadilla from March 1 to March 4, 2013. First off, the location's great, an eight-minute walk to Manuel Antonio National Park entrance, and it's a pleasant walk past other hotels or a small tourist shop here or there. There's also a short walk the other way to one of the many beaches in the area--you're...

We stayed here 2 nights during the Easter Holidays, therefore it was actually too expensive (350 $ for 2 nights with 2 children). It is located at 150 m from the beach and 250 m from the entrance of the National Park which is great. There is a pool and you can use the pool of the hotel at the...

A lovely place to stay, easy walk to the beach or the Manuel Antonio national park, a few minutes each. A good quality breakfast , sufficient food , but this was at the main hotel about 100 metres away, across a very quiet road- no problem.

We stayed here for three nights primarily for the convenient location to the park and the beach. The room (15) was small but very clean and with a large fridge and coffee maker.
