We stayed at Cabinas Capulin at the end of our trip through Costa Rica and in comparison to other places we stayed, it represents poor value. Most of the positive reviews here are for the 2 or 4 bedroom cabins. The 1 bedroom cabins are seriously average.
Roy is great. He is super helpful, very friendly and he did everything he could to make us feel welcome. We actually quite liked his simple breakfast and he organised a couple of tours for us that were great (you must do Sky Trek). However, when he warned us to check the bed for scorpions before getting in, and he pointed out some of the tarantula nests, his helpfulness went a bit far!
We were lucky that there was no one else staying in adjacent cabins at the time as the walls are flimsy and the balcony is shared. Worst of all was the cleanliness of the bathroom. There was hair everywhere, cleaning products left scattered and a couple of dead insects in the shower drain. It seemed that someone had given up halfway through cleaning our room. The bed was average and overall, it felt more like a camping experience rather than a rustic cabin.
This is probably a place for families or groups - if you are a couple and planning on a couple of cosy nights in a comfortable cabin, I would probably look elsewhere.
