At first we came into the house we felt really lucky because of the great view down to the beach. But on the second sight the room was very poor, especially the bathroom. It seemed if it was never cleaned. Also the staff was not helpful and sometimes really unfriendly (they charged for the "free" coffee afterwords 1000 colones per...

Stayed here two nights, looking for a cheap, quiet place and this worked well. Rooms are basic with good beds and ceiling fans. Nice cats and friendly staff. Close by restaurants and bar and beach. For the budget traveller this works nicely!

It's direct on the beach with a lot of shade. The room was basic but the bed was nice and bathroom clean enough although it looks maybe a bit old.

Cheap, right on the beach, relatively quiet. The mattresses were surprisingly comfortable. My friends and I stayed in that room with the ancient window-unit air conditioner. It would have worked better had several window slats not been missing. It served its purpose (a place to crash at the beach) but I'm not sure I would have stayed a second night.

We spend two nights in Cabinas San Clemente in Domicals, Costa Rica. The place is quite similar to other lodges around that area. This kind of places are not for people who want to have luxury. The room was basic, with two double beds (price was 30USD per night). So, if four people stays in the room, it is cheap....
