These Darling Cabanas on the Beach have so much potential. We really wanted to love them. Nice ocean breezes and lovely ocean views. The hotel staff was very nice. They put out fruit, toast, coffee, and juices every morning. However, the beds and pillows were horrible. The sheets did not fit, were worn thin, kept popping off because they didn't...

This place was cuteeeeeeeeeee. Upon arrival we were informed that there was a problem with the original room we booked, so they upgraded us to the Cabana Casita free of charge. The small cabana was perfect for us, other than the fact that the double bed was a bit snug for two. Loads of windows which meant fantastic ocean breeze,...

We had a great time in San Pedro and enjoyed the beachfront veranda very much. Very friendly staff and security during nighttime was a comfy add-on since the garden is open to the beachside. Rooms were clean and pretty spacious. The coffee-maker was helpful too, to enjoy local coffee :-)

The service was great from the start. I had rented a cabin with no AC and I was given the choice to upgrade to a regular room with AC at no extra charge. It is very close to the dive shops and across the street from the water. Although it's not a beach you can swim in because there is...

We stayed in one of the cabanas. No ac (which was expected), and no wifi in our room (which was not expected). It was a place to sleep and shower, but it was basic. Plenty of mosquito bites at night, which was fine if you slept under the sheets (which was unfavourable because of the no ac). It was a...

Stayed 2 nites here while we figured out our next move. $60 for a non ac room per night. Mosquitos and hot, did not make that mistake again. The place was very clean and the manager and staff were very nice and very helpful. The place is on the block so Capitol improvements might be off the table. 2.2$ million...

There's no frills here - the cabanas are small and basic, but this is not a complaint. It was exactly what we hoped for. Clean, friendly, far enough away to be peaceful but close enough for an easy stroll to everything convenient. We enjoyed affordable laundry service, free wifi, daily room service, prime beachfront location and Javier's local dining tips...

I just love this set up. I stayed in this hotel again and it was just as good as the last time. The rooms are spacious for the money, clean, the maid service cleaned the rooms everyday and refreshed the towels and wash cloths. I have left expensive equipment, money and valuables out in plain sight and nothing has ever...

We stayed in the Coco Cabana and it was lovely! The room is pretty basic, but it was clean and comfortable and exactly what we needed. We love the location!
