Loved the vibe! The mattresses were so soft in our private room. Pablo was very nice and accommodating. Great place to save money because they have an awesome community kitchen. Great spot!

We arrived late at night and Pablo was up and waiting for us to show us our room and around the grounds. The neighborhood was awesome, Pavones is the epitome of a surf town. Our room was so nice and large, it was just me a my boyfriend staying in the room and we were more than comfortable. The outdoor kitchen was well equipped and it provided a really cool community to eat with and cook alongside.

Pablo and Luisa were great hosts! They made me feel very welcome and made this a wonderful experience! What an Amazing location as well. It's a great experience, and I will be back! If you are going to surf, remember some surf booties, the rocks and pebbles are treacherous.... and they are everywhere!

Carols Cabinas is the way to go! The rooms are cheap and clean. There's always ice water and coffee available which you could easily pay $10-$15 per day if you had to go out and buy. The kitchen is open and a wonderful place to spend time getting to know everyone else. There are at least 10 hammocks available if you feel lazy, or Carol has surf boards to rent for those that are more adventurous. All of the staff were welcoming and friendly and went out of their way to make sure we made the most of our stay. We love you and miss you already! Can't wait to come back again!

It was the largest and nicest room in Costa Rica with nice big windows and lots of fans.. The room had its personal private bathroom. with a garden in it. The bed had good mosquito netting even though there weren't many mosquitoes.. There was good internet service in the room and a large community kitchen where you could cook your own meals. The music was good. There were hammocks all around and easy laid back living. The beach was close and so was a lovely river. The garden had a lot of fruit and I ate fresh papaya off the tree and fried bananas.There are flowers butterflies birds and wild giant parrots (macaws) in the garden. I went fishing, caught fish and cooked then up with potatoes on the barbecue in the jungle setting garden. I would highly recommend Pavones and Carols Cabinas.

Hi everyone from Pablo and Carol.
My name is Carol and I am originally from New Zealand.I started Cabinas Carol in 1997
When Pavones had no phones or electricity.Now Pablo manages the Cabinas and is an amazing fixer builder and host. Few people knew about Pavones in the old days and would turn up randomly waiting for the waves to come. These days Pavones is better known and people find us on the internet and follow
the waves on the internet. Many of our customers have been coming for years and our best advertising has been word of mouth. Happy customers recommend our place to their friends. We really value our customers and take good care of them.We try to keep our prices as low as possible and help them out with surf board rentals and well as fishing and tours. Our Cabinas have always been a friendly happy place and we warmly invite you to come and stay. To book just email us on or call +( or +(. You can also follow us on Instagram, #cabinascarol and
The Cabinas do not have air conditioning but are well ventilated with windows and fans.The town has no ATM machine and just 2 small supermarkets.We have a large open share kitchen and dining area where you can cook to your hearts delight and hang out. All the rooms have chairs and hammocks to hang out. We supply free cold water and coffee all day and some fruit from the garden. The garden has lots of trees and plants to enjoy.
We are situated in the center just in front of the wave and near the river and shops.
