Basic but clean & roomy and all rooms with sea views; the owners are really helpful, and the options of a self catering kitchen a big bonus for breakfast if you tire of the menu. Wifi variable in the rooms but always ok in the kitchen/dining area. A good option at a good price.

We arrived at Drake Bay after an adventure in Corcovado National Park. Stayed at Cabinas Murillo for one night before continuing on our travels, and it was definitely a great spot. We had a room with two twin beds and a balcony with an awesome view of the ocean. We were able to arrange a boat from Drake Bay to... More

Karolina and Juan genuinely go out of their way to make guests comfortable, and arrange the best local owned and operated ecotours that are truly eco friendly. In town with great view over the waterfront, easy walk to stores, restaurants, and beach. You do have to bring, buy your own drinking water, and the wi-fi signal is weak in the... More

Wonderful place with amazing owners. Clean room with lovely view and conveniently located. Nice breakfast as well. Can't recommend this place enough. Owners are incredibly responsible and very competent unlike some other operators in the area.

Cabinas Murillo is in the heart of the town which makes it easy to walk to the market, beach and all restaurants. Karolina and her family are absolutely amazing! She arranged all our adventures from scuba diving to horseback riding and night hiking. All the guides she recommended were fantastic assuring a great experience.

We stayed here for 3 nights, and though the room is quite basic, I think it is a good deal for the price. What we loved about it was the spectacular view. Open our eyes in the morning and seeing the bay was amazing. We had scarlet macaws all over the place, flying and showing off. The attention is very... More

Go for one of the 4 attached cabinas up the hill - Everything over here is about the view ! Room and bathroom is very basic but clean ! And you are not too far from the market. We were there last year and planning to go back for a longer stay.

My wife and I stayed in the Oceanview Room with a full-sized bed. We read the mixed reviews, but for the price we decided to roll the dice, and it probably wasn't our best decision. We were only there for 1 night and I'm very thankful for that. When we arrived, I have to admit that we were impressed, the... More
