We got so lucky finding this on our adventure to Drake bay. We backpacked to sierpe river in hopes of showing up in Drake bay and finding a decent place to stay. One of the boat captains was arranging trips to drake and when we told him we didnt have a place to stay he called cabinas murillo for us...

We stayed 2 nights in these Cabinas in an ocean view room. The view is wonderful and the price reasonable. There is no restaurant in the place but you are 5 minutes from the village center were you can eat or buy some food. Rooms are clean and the service very good, a nice place to stay while visiting Corcovado....

I can only speak for the rooms at the road level. They were pretty gross, overall. It was basically a big pale blue room with two beds. Nothing else. No chairs or desks or anything. Bathroom was a little sketchy and hot water was nonexistent. That said, I hear the rooms on the hill were a lot nicer, and the...

Only stayed here a couple of nights but the dorms were clean, large, with lockers and the staff were friendly and helpful. It's located halfway between the town centre (which is tiny in itself) and the beach. Free wi-fi. Showers were supposed to have hot water but they were always cold, but really when it's as warm as it is...

A note that I have read about the deluxe ocean-view cabins, which in hindsight sound really great, but at the time of my trip, not being willing to spend the $5 extra/person (I can be unreasonably stingy, I know), I talked my boyfriend and friend into sharing one of the large group rooms downstairs, which are $15/person. So, this review...

This place is just amazing! It's really close to the beach where you get dropped off, but high enough up in the village to have the best view ever! The owners are super friendly and will help you with everything. Rooms are nice and clean and from the balcony you can watch the most beautiful sunset ever!

We found this lodge completely by accident, but absolutely loved it. It is situated right in the center so you can walk everywheren. All cabins have sea view. The owner is very friendly and you can safely park your car. For only 40 dollar you get a clean cabin with van and own shower. There is no luxury but who...

I've traveled a lot, including all over Costa Rica, and Cabinas Murillo completely impressed me in every way. The owner and rest of the staff are incredibly helpful with anything you could need. We stayed in brand new rooms, that are much cleaner than more expensive hotels. The view and location was perfect, with access to everything in the area....
