We booked the private cabinas here. Wasn't quite what we expected. We wished we would have spent some more money for better value. Especially during the summer it's so hot and humid in Drake Bay; you're sweating from sunrise till sunset. We wanted to come 'home' in a nice place. Plus: - Taxi from the beach to accommodation upon arrival...

Stayed in a private room which was of a adequate size and with mosquitero. Bathrooms were clean! Liked the hammocks in Front of the room and the jungle noises I could hear when Fällung asleep. Staff was very friendly. I didn't like bahia Drake too mich though, exceptfor the very good snorkeking/diving near isla caña I wouldn't say it's worth...

This place is perfect for anyone on a budget. I was a bit worried about the shared bathroom situation at first but there was only one other room taken when we where there (in the high season) so it was quite peaceful. Even if they were all full (5 rooms) I think it would be fine. I loved the outdoor...

We stayed just one night at Cabinas Manolo and were lucky to have an upstairs room with a nice balcony: although there is no A/C, the fans worked well and there were few mosquitos (in early Jan). The service was average, depending on who was at the front desk. BEWARE the tours, though: it's hit or miss with the guides!...

We stayed for four nights, it was the highlight of our trip. Great surroundings, jungle all around and birds to see from your own patio. The room was big and clean. The restaurant just had opened when we were there, food made with love. Breakfast and dinner! They offer a lot of tours and take care of everything for you,...

Nice place to relax after a long drive. Really nice family and you can book all your tours at the reception. Restaurant is only open for breakfast but it is only a short walk from the little village. Would stay there again

For the price range, this is is one of the most comfortable, clean, and pretty rooms I have had in my travels, it was big and well ventilated (very important!) We visited during low season, the restaurant was closed but that didnt bother us. We almost had the whole place to ourselves. The owners were very helpful, but not overly...

They were very nice at the beggining, but once they realized that we would not book some of the their tours with them due to weather conditions they weren't helpful at all. Noise cabins, far away from the City Centre (specially very isolated at night) and restaurant much more expensive than other in Drake Bay.

Super clean, very comfortable, safe, quiet, great location, terrific people. What more could you want? Manolo and his wife, as well as the rest of the staff, are very accommodating, knowledgeable and friendly! I was only in Drake Bay for two nights and was traveling alone. Regrettably, I do not speak much Spanish but that was never a problem. I...

There are few places in the world where your host knows everyone and everything there is to know to have a perfect vacation. Manolo and his family took care of us for 5 days like we were Canadian delegates on a mission to Paradise. First the fact we all speak Spanish made the entire experience authentic. I cannot stress enough...

“If you get the chance, rent the room which is under their “house”. A little far from the reception but you get a real nice quiet place, which is also closer to the town/beach (50mts closer).”
