I stayed here for a week in October. Got upgraded to one of the rooms with a patio and outside kitchen. It was great! It felt a bit like " home from home" and I felt totally safe and looked after. Had a great massage, highly recommended.

Unfortunately we were robbed on our first night as we slept. We had left the patio door open for fresh air and someone came in and stole the cell phone from the night stand. Everything else was great and as expected for the price. I would recommend staying here, just wanted to give a reminder not to let your guard...

My staff and I were very troubled to hear what happened. Words can not be expressed enough to say how bad we felt about it. Unfortunately, the incident gives the town of Puerto Jimenez a bad reputation of not being a safe place to go, which isn't the case. I have also bought wireless camera's. Again, I apologize for what...

We had a wonderful time at this beautiful place. The staff was very very friendly and helped us with everything. We would recommend staying in bungalow no2 with the open kitchen. This was one of our highlights during our trip. We will definitely come back when we are in Costa Rica again.

Cabinas Jimenez is a fine choice for Port Jimenez. Great location in a quiet area of town, yet within walking distance to practically everything, including the airport, and restaurant row. Although we felt safe in the entire town, the parked cars at the Cabinas are fenced in for a little added security. For us foreigners who do not speak Spanish,...

We've just left this fabulous place. We had the 'ranch downstairs'. Good value, spacious, clean. Right on the beach. Great terrace with outdoor kitchen and lots of seats for chilling watching the tide come in and out. Walk along the beachfront to breakfast and dinner in Puerto Jiminez, 3 minutes away. They have free kayaks, free bikes and free wifi....

My one-night stay at Cabinas Jimenez was absolutely fine - good location in town, nice view over the Gulfo Dulce, and the staff was friendly.

Great place to stay – I’m told the nicest in PJ. Probably more pricey than other places, but you get what you pay for in this town.

It was perfect for our family with two 10 year old kids. We stayed in bungalow #1 and it was beautiful and had one of the best porches I've seen with nice furniture and you're right on the water front with a view of the beautiful bay.
