The staff was helpful, informative and most of all accommodating. We stayed there the night before and after our trek to Corcavado. They kept our luggage and watched our car. On top of that the place is very nice, eclectic for sure, but that is the charm of the place. Definitely a place to stay.

This is our 2nd trip to Cabinas Jimenèz and it just keeps getting better and better. John, Jaun Carlos and staff are extremely amenable and make for a very pleasant stay.

As hotels go this is a three star place but it is a great three star place to stay. The staff are all very accommodating and the price is nice as well. It is right on the water so the breeze off of the water is very welcome when it gets hot and humid. Bring your own soap and shampoo!...

I liked the location; nothing better than sittin' on the dock of the bay, and the Golfo Dulce is gorgeous. The staff were helpful; I overheard one guy on the phone ordering breakfast (for the boss, it turned out) and he very sweetly offered to get some for me & my family, too. Plenty of plus points. But: just don't...

Thank you for your " Lots of good things about this place " review. The staff does their best to be helpful and friendly. The Cabinas with the view of the Golfo Dulce " The Sweet Gulf " are well worth the experience. Thanks again, and hope to see you again.

My 20 year old daughter and I enjoyed our stay at Cabinas Jimenez. The staff was very helpful and kind, especially Lia. We went out in the kayaks and saw dolphins near the pier.

We spent 2 weeks here... great relaxing time. All the fun things to do, biking and kayaking included free. But the real high-light was there boat tour across the Gulfo Dulce seeing all the dolphins, fish, turtles, birds and monkeys. Snorkeling was great too over small reefs in shallow clear water filled with fish. The hotel has the best views...
