“Trying to do the right thing”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 8 March 2014

Because Puerto Jimenez is literally at the end of the paved road, it is hard to find all that you need to make a guest's stay a memorable one. They get a lot of points for trying to do the right thing. Sometimes it is not all that it could be but they have a lot going for them. The staff is very friendly and they try to accommodate your needs to the best of their abilities.
The location is just fabulous. You are right on the bay yet just a block away from downtown so it is very scenic and convenient location.
We were renting the bungalow which has a full kitchen. It was disconcerting that the full kitchen lacked a towel or a pitcher. We eventually purchased our own in town.
We enjoyed our stay and we stay and the positive attitude of the staff.

Room Tip: If you want to cook your own meals, you can do it from one of the rooms but for the $, at $ 110 per...

Location is great. PJ is a very small town so proximity is key. Free loaner bikes make it easy to get around town. The pool with the Jets was great - especially after a long Corcovado hike. We arrived late and reception was closed but they left a number to call, and they were able to get us checked in quickly.

Room Tip: we booked the basic room. It was no frills, small. Great shower! If I was staying longer maybe a l...

Everything you need, including other friendly and sociable guests! Pool is nice even though the ocean is a few feet away. There's a common grilling area to cook at and a little fridge in your room. The grocery and little markets are convenient. Several restaurants nearby. Life is only as hard as you want to make it!

A friend recommended Cabinas Jimenez. We usually stay at 4 star resorts, so I was disappointed initially. I came to appreciate what this little place had to offer. The view of the gulf from our bungalow was beautiful. The location close to town for restaurants. Laya, the evening desk clerk was exceptional. She was a wealth of information regarding activities and restaurant recommendations. One activity that she recommended was a birdwatching tour with Osa-insights. Fernando our guide was extremely knowledgable.
The only negative was the extremely loud music on Friday and Saturday night from the local waterfront bar. The music blasted until about 3am.

Room Tip: Bungalo #1 was nice because it has a private veranda to enjoy the gulf view. It also has a little k...

What a fabulous place. We loved it. It has everything down to the finest detail but remains relaxed natural and very chilled. They have bikes and kayaks to 'borrow'. Rooms have aircon, good fridges, plates, cutlery glasses and plates, great for your own catering. 'Hot showers'. Macaws flying overhead almost all day. Very good, knowledgeable staff. What more could anybody want?

I was able to book a room the night before I arrived and the owner was very understanding. The place is right on the beach and close to the Main street in town - you are literally minutes away from everything. There's a pool with jets that clean and free kayaks and bikes. The staff is very knowledgeable about the area and will do their best to help you out. The rooms are big, with an AC and the waterfront views are worth the extra money. Will definitely stay here again!
