We ended up at Cabinas Espadilla when the hotel we had planned to stay at ended up booked and referred us to their neighbor. Cabinas Espadilla turned out to be pretty great, just a short walk from Manuel Antonio National Park and an even shorter walk to the public beach. The room was clean and comfortable and the grounds were...

Location, location, location. We loved Cabinas Espadilla because it is as close as you can be to Manuel Antonio Park without being on the main drag where all the noise and craziness is. It has a great pool, as does its companion hotel a few hundred feet away. For breakfast, you get this amazing huge buffet breakfast with an omelette...

We had to switch hotels because the one we were at first was booked the rest of the week so we walked down a little ways to this one and it was a great deal so we decided to stay the rest of the week here. We were in the cabana's not the hotel and there seemed to be a...

Maybe I'm biased because the place we stayed at before this was disgusting but these cabinas were lovely. The room was clean and spacious, we even had a small kitchenette area in our room. Fresh towels each day and air conditioning if you need it. The reception staff were friendly and informative. The breakfast that's included is taken at their...

We stayed at Cabinas Espadilla for (2) nights while on our three week Costa Rica vacation. The location is excellent.....we didn't use our car at all. (as close as you can get to the beach and the park) The outside ambience of the cabins and pool area is really nice. There is a huge covered porch that spans the cabins,...

We were indeed so fortunate to use the Cabinas Espadilla as our home base for our three-day visit to Manuel Antonio National Park. There are so many positive things to say about our stay here that I hardly know where to begin! First of all, the staff is helpful in every way, and the rooms are comfortable and very clean...

I didn't LOVE this place. The rooms were okay, the service was okay, and the pool was decent. Overall, the place just looks a little old and worn out. While the price wasn't high, it was more than some of the other places we stayed that were much nicer. This is probably because of the location. The Cabinas are easy...

The location was unbeatable... we just walked to everything. The rooms were ok. We had a bit of an ant problem and the showers have electric heaters which are kinda scary.... but all in all it was good. We had breakfast at the hostel across the street every day and they had cheap internet access. The walls were very thin...

Check in is easy and quick. Staff were polite and friendly. The service is a minimum you would expect from any hotel: they change the towels and make the beds every day. Rooms are very small. We were there with a 4 year old and they gave us a room with two beds that barely had any walking space. We...

This hotel is within walking distance to Manuel Antonio park entrance. This is the only upside. The area around it is a busy bustle. Hotel charges a lot for rooms that are probably worth only a half of it. There is hardly any room inside to move around. You will need to have the air conditioner on - it is...
