We stayed at Cabinas Espadilla 3 days with a family of four. The location of Cabinas Espadilla is is superb - 5 minutes walking from the entrance to the Manuel Antonio national park, two minutes from the beach! Some cabins have kitchenettes and open up to a shared patio, some don't. It can get noisy with Costa Rican families chatting...

This hotel provides great affordable options in the heart of Manuel Antonio. I found the room well apportioned with a kitchenette, refrigerator, well working AC and great bathroom. The hotel is only a short walk from the beach, national park and bus station to Quepos. The hotel has well maintained grounds with a beautiful pool. They also offer a great...

I just returned from a lovely weekend at Cabinas Espadilla in Manuel Antonio. The receptionist was very friendly, he took us to our room and showed us the cabin to make sure it was all ok. Breakfast was very good with many options for savory and sweet breakfast. The swimming pool is great with comfortable lounges in the outdoors. The...

For us, this place was very relaxing and enjoyable. It was low-key (not fancy, just nice), clean, quiet, and well kept. The bathroom was small, but sufficient. We had a little kitchenette, which was a dated, but perfectly fine. (We were happy to have a fridge!) We had a little area out back that we shared with just one other...

Location can't be beat! 5 minute walk to the entrance of Manuel Antonio National Park & 2 minute walk to the beach! Best breakfast we had in our stay in Costa Rica. Breakfast is at the sister hotel which is right across the street. The restaurant there is very good as well. Pricier than the other restaurant across the street,...

The cabinas are very small for 4 people. There is not really place for luggage. They have a kitchen (not really necessary for us, expect the fridge) and a place to hang up your wet clothes. They're very close to the beach (1 min. to walk) and they take care about the garden and the rooms. The breakfast is in...

As other reviewers have pointed out the location is very good. It is just a short stroll through the hotel garden to the beach and close to the National Park entrance. The cabins are near a pleasant swimming pool and the gardens are well tended and pleasant. My first impression of the cabin we were allocated was that it was...

Literally 5 minute walk to the naional park and beach. Staff and rooms nice, good tv:) and beautiful- overall great! Breakfast is by their neighboring hotel a 1 minute walk which did not have anything great for breakfast but the place itself is worth it to stay by because other places we checked out were nastyyy

We stayed here for 4 nights on a recent trip and don't think the location (200m from the beach one way and Manuel Antonio Natonal Park the other) could be bettered.

This hotel is located just outside the Manuel Antonio National Park and was the reason we stayed here for three days recently. We booked the cabins instead of the main hotel as they are situated closer to the beach, however, the rooms in the hotel appeared to be more modern and the extra walk to the beach was minimal. We...
