I stayed at this hotel on a tour group while touring Costa Rica. The concept of the hotel is cute, and the staff is very friendly, but there is many things wrong with this property. First, let's start with the pool. It is really nice, but the deck needs to be resurfaced, as it is easy to cut yourself or...

They had many wooden houses used as the rooms for guests. There were a lot of space inside the house that we could place our stuff. However, Don't forget to close every door before you come in the bedroom because you might encounter with mosquitoes at night. You can see Arenal Volcano distinctly from the hotel. Most of hotels in...

Excellent facility enjoyed the entire time we were there. Cabins are perfect size with air conditioning in the cabins. The pool was nice for the cool down after a long day out on excursions. Breakfasts in the morning at the hotel were great bonus to the stay. Service was great and friendly.

We really enjoyed our stay at the Cabanitas. The landscaped grounds were just beautiful. Our cabin was nicely done...we saw some that were much nicer. My only complaint is that we didn't have windows or screens in our cabin (just wood shudders). The room didn't feel very secure and, although not as buggy as many places in Costa Rica, we...

I stayed in this hotel for two nights. On the outside it is absolutely beautiful--very green and scenic with local wildlife. Our room was basic, except we had a coffee maker without coffee, we had no hot water (we had to go to our friends' rooms!!), and the internet and TV didn't work (not that we particularly cared, but for...

Stayed here with G Adventures so hotel was pre-booked. The little cabins were cute & spacious. The staff were very attentive & grounds were nice. Our shower was so strong it felt like our skin was peeling off, but after being in 2 hotels where we had zero water pressure it was a welcome relief. The hotels are not well-insulated...

When traveling to other countries, we have to remember that US standards are very different. In my travels, I stayed at five different hotels in various parts of Costa Rica.   Las Cabañitas was a beautiful hotel. The view of the Arenal Volcano is simply amazing. I loved seeing the wildlife, including toucans, at the hotel. Bring a camera with a...

We stayed here as a group, it is a few miles out of town - a $2 taxi ride per person so factor that in if you're in a budget. The only shop nearby is the garage across the road that sells drinks and crisps. The rooms are basically sheds with beds! There were ants everywhere, all over the room...

Background: I stayed here with my group of 15 high school students(along with 17 students from other schools, plus chaperons) traveling with EF Tours. I also always travel with the mentality: things are not going to be like they are back home. With this in mind: The “resort” is a nicer option if you are on a stricter budget. The...

If all you want from a hotel room is a great view, this is the place. Very nice view of the Volcano. However if you enjoy no hot water for a shower, comforters without disgusting stains, sheets you cannot literally read the paper thru, an in room coffee maker with no coffee or cups (requested, never received) and an A/C...
