I came to Cabinas Villa Kunterbunt and didn't expect anything except for a cheap stay. I was pleasantly surprised to find the place run by a very nice couple who were more than willing to help me find activities to fill my free time with.
You can have a good but inexpensive breakfast which is served in the beachfront garden which is an excellent place just to hangout. Hammocks are provided. You can also rent kayaks and start your kayak or snorkelling trip directly at the beach behind the garden.
The Cabinas are situated ca. 2 km out of town directly at the marvellous Sámara Beach. To get into town you can either take the bus which runs hourly at a price of ca. 50 US cents or take a 20 mins walk down the beach. This is especially nice at sunset.
Don't expect to find any luxuries here: this is a cheap place. However, the rooms are spacious, light and clean. The fan provided sufficiently cool air and I found comparatively few ants in there...:)
For your convenience, there is a kitchen and a mini pool. Maybe the showers aren't hot, but who wants a hot shower in the sweltering temperatures of a Costa Rican summer?
Overall I had a great time in the Cabinas and say thank you to easy going Antje and Tommi :)More
