If you're looking for 'Something Different' that's off the main road (by that I mean quiet) then you'll love this place. The family who owns it are locals and couldn't be more helpful. Every time I leave the jungle this is the place I stay. Good rooms with good fencing so you don't have to worry about anyone bothering you... More

I "stayed" one night in this place and it has been the worst experience in my entire life. The place was old and not very clean. The shower was terrible and there was no hot water, but the worst part was the 4 massive cockroaches inside my bed!! I ended sleeping in the car

Simple place according to the price... clean and very local caribbean life style and design. No a tourism corporation even similar, but the HUMANITY of their people, the friendly and kind support to the guest are the best deal you can make. For few years I planned to visit Manzanilo and this Cabinas... Now we see the best effort of... More

Location is the best thing going for this affordable spot in Manzanillo. The room is standard, more or less like an older Motel 6. If I get back to Manzanillo one day I will probably seek out a different place to stay, mainly because I felt the innkeeper was a little on the rude side compared with everyone else I... More

Something Different was what we paid for. It's really cheap which was great but the room was extremely small (just a bed). One good thing is that we had our own bathroom with hot water. The owner was nice to us and it was a really good choice for staying in Manzanillo just two nights and not spend a lot.

My friend and I stayed here for two nights back in August. The rooms are clean, spacious and fit two double beds with room to spare. The owner is very nice and extremely helpful. Her children are adorable as well. She takes very good care of her hotel. She was also helpful in acting as a go between by relaying... More
