Reviewed 16 September 2013

The staff is great, John does a great Job keeping the place neat, well managed and quite, plus you have free kayacs, free bikes and whale watching tours at a fair price, can't beat that! The rooms are comfortable, clean, nicely decorated and have ac, fans and tv set. The view from the cabinas is spectacular and the location is perfect. Fully recommended.

We stayed here for 3 nights while going to trek in corcovado. The place is nice but:
They are not nice in the reception- when i asked for help with the bus scheduele, the recepcionist smiled and said he can't help me, that i should look on-line.
Second, it is written on bill boards that they have hot water, and they don't! When we asked for the third time why there is no hot water, they managed to say something about lightning three weeks ago. So why do you charge full price when you don't have full water? Why not tell your guests this veryimportant fact?

I apologize for the lack of information, with the bus scheduales. He was a new receptionist, who just starting working. As far as the hot water, all of the rooms have hot water. They are called suicide shower heads, for lack of a better name. It is just what they call them. . There is three positions on the shower head. Cold, warm and hot. It must have been in the cold position. I apologize. John owner of Cabinas Jimenez

Hello, you must be mistaken Cabinas Jimenez with another hotel. We, the cleaning staff, takes much pride, in keeping the rooms, very clean. I know for a fact, that all of the A.C's work, because I just had them worked on [ cleaned ] . And also Cabinas Jimenez does NOT have a open bar. Would you please contact Trip Advisor ,and remove your review. Thank you, John owner of Cabinas Jimenez

I had planned to get one of the cheap $10 a night rooms in Puerto Jimenez but am so glad that I went for Cabinas Jimenez. Being right on the water was special. Having use of the kayaks and bikes were great. John's whale watching trip was incredible. The staff were so friendly and helpful and rooms were cute. They kept by suitcase while I was on my two day hike into Corcovado for no charge, All in all it was a great experience.

We were there with my wife. Cabinas Jimenez is definately the nicest accommodation around - be sure to choose one of rancho rooms, they are spacy and equipped with a coffeemaker, fridge etc. John's boat trip with whales and dolphins was also great, we got to see not only a bunch of dolphins but also whales, turtles and the animal sanctuary (the spider monkey was a funny one). If you have the extra dollar (our room was 90$) I would recommend to use it in Cabinas Jimenez.

I sort of stumbled onto this place by luck. I took my son to CR for two weeks this summer as a graduation trip. We decided to do an overnight hike into Corcovado and needed a place to stay the nights before and after our trek. I chose Cabinas because they were cheap and I was running out of money.

I was very pleasantly surprised. Not only were the rooms nice and clean (and air conditioned!!!), but the grounds were beautiful. I loved the painting on all of the walls (inside the rooms as well as all of the outside walls) and the beautifully maintained tropical gardens. The pool was small, but clean and refreshing, and we had it to ourselves so it was plenty big. The rooms have coffee pots and mini refrigerators, and warm water.

The staff was very friendly and courteous and very helpful. They even kept our baggage under lock and key in a closet on the day and night we hiked into Corcovado so I didn't have to pay for a room that night. I would definitely return to Cabinas Jimenez--next time with my wife.

Room Tip: Room 7 is by the pool and has a semi-private patio. Loved it!

Great service and personnel! Clean comfortable rooms. I had a room with view to the beach and it was beautiful!
The place is son nicely decorated, it is beautiful. Location is prefect, it is near to the center, sp you can walk; but not as close so you have your privacy. It is close to the dock also, so you can easily book a dolphin/whales tour or get a ride to Golfito or Matapalo.
The reason why I do not give it a 5 star is because the pool is too small; but no complaints.

Room Tip: book the rooms in front of the beach!
