Loved our stay at the Cabinas! The rooms were clean and the bed linen super crispy and white. A/C was powerfu and safe in room. Didn't need the kitchen area so had our suitcase on the breakfast bar. The rooms are tight because of the second double bed but loved the fact that you step outside and you are surrounded... More

Visited with friends and the place is just beautiful. A lot of nature, wildlife, beautiful beaches, just beware of the monkeys. As a national park goes there are some restrictions on the food and drinks you can enter with. This however helps the with cleanness of the place.

I stayed at the Cabinas Espadilla for five nights in August 2016 with my husband and two boys, ten and almost two years old. We loved the hotel! The staff were very friendly and welcoming. Our room was well equipped with a safe, coffee maker, flat screen TV, A/C, and fridge. It was quite spacious as well and nicely furnished... More

We were warmly welcomed by Leo, who was very friendly and helpful! When he overheard us mention to each other that our surf lesson left before breakfast, he arranged to have "breakfast to go" so we could take it with us! Our room was bright, clean and air conditioned - nothing extraordinary, but perfect for what we needed. Quick walks... More

Clean and neat Hotel, Rooms are decent and big enough as well as the pool. Really close to the Park's entrance. Rates are fair enough as well. The cabins are separated from the Hotel, but you can go to the Hotel and have a breakfast, meal or dinner

Stayed 2 nights at Cabinas Espadilla as part of an Explore tour with breakfast 50 metres up the road at Playa Espadilla, which was one of best 2 breakfasts in 2 weeks in Cost Rica. Rooms have a kitchen, but it wasn’t really of use to us. Rooms appear to be in rows of 4 with the 2 end ones... More

This hotel is divided into the Hotel Playa Espadilla and Cabinas Espadilla. "Cabin" is not exactly how I would describe the rooms, but they did have kitchenettes. Our room was on the far end, away from the road which was nice, but when you open the door you walk right into 1 of the 2 double beds. Very tight! Decent... More

We were in Costa Rica for the Envision Festival, so after 5 days in a tent in the jungle we were ready for a little luxury. Manuel Antonio fit the bill perfectly.
