we staied three nights at the cabinas playa and spent a very relaxing time there. The rooms are very simple and could need some renovation BUT: The setting is good as its only 200 metres from the Beach where you can watch a beautiful sunset and the surfers. The Beach is very nice and quiet, you can walk for miles... More

THE! Place to stay at Santa. I spent my entire time while in Santa at Cabinas Playa. The rooms and premises are well kept, tidy and comfortable. The staff are incredible and are there for your every need. A barefoot walk to "La Lora" beach, you are set! Tnx for the beautiful memories.

Terrible experience. The hostel was really dirty and had electricity problems. The location is fine if you only want to go to the beach, but if you need to buy anything you will have to walk 0.8 km to the first market. Rooms are small and the last day we didnt even have water! Not recommended.

I've seen a hostel or two in my life, and CABINAS Playa is by far one of them best, the atmosphere is just amazing. Owner, Idan is a super nice guy, knows all the best restaurants and locations to hit in town, and helps with anything needed. Highly recommended!
