Only stayed here a couple of nights but the dorms were clean, large, with lockers and the staff were friendly and helpful. It's located halfway between the town centre (which is tiny in itself) and the beach. Free wi-fi. Showers were supposed to have hot water but they were always cold, but really when it's as warm as it is...

A note that I have read about the deluxe ocean-view cabins, which in hindsight sound really great, but at the time of my trip, not being willing to spend the $5 extra/person (I can be unreasonably stingy, I know), I talked my boyfriend and friend into sharing one of the large group rooms downstairs, which are $15/person. So, this review...

This place is just amazing! It's really close to the beach where you get dropped off, but high enough up in the village to have the best view ever! The owners are super friendly and will help you with everything. Rooms are nice and clean and from the balcony you can watch the most beautiful sunset ever!

We found this lodge completely by accident, but absolutely loved it. It is situated right in the center so you can walk everywheren. All cabins have sea view. The owner is very friendly and you can safely park your car. For only 40 dollar you get a clean cabin with van and own shower. There is no luxury but who...

I've traveled a lot, including all over Costa Rica, and Cabinas Murillo completely impressed me in every way. The owner and rest of the staff are incredibly helpful with anything you could need. We stayed in brand new rooms, that are much cleaner than more expensive hotels. The view and location was perfect, with access to everything in the area....

If you're traveling to Drake Bay, you're going to want to spend as little time as possible indoors, so there's no reason to spend lots of money on a room that you'll only be sleeping in. That being said, of course cleanliness and comfort are still important factors in choosing lodging. Cabinas Murillo is hands-down your best option. The prices...

Cabinas Murillo is centrally located in the town of Drake's Bay. It is close to the beach, as hotels in that area go. There are no hotels (to my knowledge) that are actually on the beach and many of them are quite far (30 min walking) yet claim to be on the beach. The rooms are big, lots of beds...

This place was horrible to say the least. We were told (by e-mail) that the rooms were "beach front" and when we arrived they told us that we were "close to the beach." We also told them that we needed two rooms (two adult couples and two teenagers) and they wanted to put us in one large room with a...

If you're looking for a cheaper place to stay in Drake Bay, check out Cabinas Murillo! The cabinas at the top of the hill have the most spectacular view of the bay. We sat out on the balcony, watched the water, saw parrots and toucans fly by and enjoyed the beauty of our surroundings. The owner, Hubert, is very nice...
