“The Special One”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 16 May 2013

It was my first destination when me and my boyfriend arrived Costa Rica last March. We stay five days, and i'm glad to say that after one month in Costa Rica it was the best place that i have stayed.
Not just for the accommodation but for the village of Manzanillo.... If you are looking for the non tourist experiênce and for quality time with you self with a place that you can call your one to come back at the end of a perfect day, Manzanillo is the right place for you. Cabinas Yamann is a complex of 3 cabines and one kitchen. One of cabinas is for the owner (like Manzanillo, a simple, relax and welcome person), and the other tow cabinas is for rent. Each one with your own privacy and a view to a beautiful garden. The location is perfect and Manzanillo is a small village so is near to everything... You can go to beach in the morning come back for lunch and go to the beach again in the afternoon. Writing this review after 2 months, makes me realize how happy i was there, it will be forever a very special place for me.

Room Tip: Select the last one of the property is the most private

We really enjoyed our 5 days stay at Cabinas Yamann in late December 2012. We didn't rent a car so we looked for a place within a walking distance to the beach ,jungle ,store ,bus ,restaurant
and that was exactly it. The cabinas are very clean ,comfortable and we felt very safe there ,on the top of that there is a free coffee in the morning. We used outdoor kitchen to make light meals in the morning which we enjoyed on the porch while listening to all kind of birds and occasional monkey howl, The bicycle rental is just around the corner and morning(less traffic) bike ride to picturesque Punta Uva beach is a must the ride is very pleasant and we got to see monkeys ,toucans and a sloth just by the road.

Stayed at Cabinas Yamann for a week in early November 2012 and had a wonderful time. The cabinas are very clean and well kept. We did not take advantage of the kitchen area except to make some wonderful Costa Rican coffee in the mornings before our walk on the beach. We had planned on using it, however there are some great "sodas" with excellent local foods with very good prices nearby. Daniel helped set up a terrific tour with Florentino, a local guide. I would highly recommend him for a tour of the rain forest. We will definitely stay there again. In fact we loved the entire area and may decide to spend several months there in retirement.

We spent 4 days in July at Cabinas Yamann . We have liked very much the place including the rooms who are spotless, the location not far from the beach and the garden where you can see frequently hummingbirds and frogs. Daniel the owner is very friendly and knowledgeable about nature. The restaurant (Soda) next door serve good food at affordable price.

WE LOVED our time at Cabinas Yamann. Daniel and Tonya have created a wonderful gem in the jungle area of the Caribe. Sweet cabinas, swiss quality :) lovely with hot water (even in the sink!) and big comfortable beds. Sweet porch with comfy hammock. The frog garden outside our cabin has lovingly tended red frogs. Delightful, easy to use outdoor kitchen, lush plantings, toucans and parrots flying overhead, monkeys howling and frogs singing choruses. The best part is the care and friendliness of Daniel and Tonya who treated us like friends not clients. Daniel took me on a "nature walk" into the jungle one day and showed me so many animals that we had totally missed the day before on our own. The jungle is so amazing here. It is the Costa Rica we were looking for! We have recommended it over and over as we have met other travelers around the country. Thank you thank you thank you! Lou and Mark Boulder, Colorado, USA

Room Tip: each cabina is so sweet, You can't go wrong. Just book ahead!

The Cabinas Yamann were our last stop in Costa Rica and it was so beautiful and peaceful. This little place is fantastic to relax, enjoy the beautiful beaches and the sun. The cabinas are very spacious, very modern and super clean with every comfort and so beautiful designed. Breakfast was great at their neighbors soda. A big thank you to Tanja and Dani for their very friendly and warm welcome, for organising our tour and giving tips and making our stay so great.

Cabinas Yamann is the best kept secret in Costa Rica. Wonderful owners, great cabins, and a fantastic experience. We will be back here again and again! We bounced around looking for the "right" spot, and found it in Manzanillo. Great, small and very laid back community.
