We booked the #1 rancho room and enjoyed it. Having 3 people it slept us fine, with 3 beds in 2 rooms. This isn't a luxurious resort, but you are kind of in the middle of nowhere. In fact this town has only 1 paved road. We stayed here to visit Corcovado, and it worked OK. There's about a 1...

I read good reviews about this place before booking, and set my expectations accordingly - and yet - it exceeded them! Staff was super friendly, speaking English, helping with everything you might need. The location is great - right on the water (this is a bay, not really a beach to swim at), 2 minutes walikng from the main street...

John and Leah are great hosts. They have different rooms for different budgets, so it's easy to find a spot that fits. The rooms are quiet, clean, and air-conditioned. Also, they include the use of 6 kayaks and about 10 different bikes for free, first-come, first-serve. Beautiful location right on the bay, easy walk to the downtown area or to...

I can't say enough how much we enjoyed our stay at Cabinas Jimenez. We stayed in the lower Rancho for one week (April 06-13th) which I really recommend. The private deck with views of the Golfo Dulce took our breath away. Every morning I watched the sunrise as I drank my coffee and listened to Macaws and other fabulous birds...

Affordable, and the a/c was a huge relief. We loved the location as we walked to town for all of our meals. Also, loved that we could use kayaks and bikes...which we used each day we were there. Conveniently located on gulf. We stayed in Rancho, on the second level....plenty of space and liked the upper deck.

We really enjoyed this little hotel. We stayed in room #10. Clean and quiet. We could hear the disco beat from across the water on the weekend, but not that bad. The staff was friendly. Room had a refrigerator, microwave and coffee maker. We did the boat tour. Saw dolphins.

This really is an awesome hotel stay!
