Inside Our Resort

 

Happy Guests

From the moment we go off the boat & on to the dock, our stay here was amazing! The personal service, the amenities, the room, the food everything about this place is fabulous. The owner, Marleny was the most gracious, friendly woman we have met in a long time. She was a wealth of info for planning/setting up tours and general info. We are wildlife photographers, and the guides she set us up with spotted more than we dreamed of to take pictures of. The rooms are immaculate, food is fresh from their farm & the sea (they ask about dietary needs as well) the views rivaled any 5 star place around. We look forward to spending many more vacations building memories at this gem!

It took me a long time to realize I was no longer on the shore of Drake Bay and expect to see it out of the window still. On the morning we left we had a yellow king bird sitting on a post 10 yards from our chalet and 15 yards the other an impressive pale eagle with a fierce looking beak and similar expression. Our visit to you was the making of our trip to Costa Rica and we are finding very hard indeed to settle back into English life. You have really managed a formula for your guests so that they have the most enjoyable and comfortable time possible. We usually manage to have excellent trips but this one was made very special by our visit to you. Very many thanks to you for that and best wishes

We immersed ourselves in The Drake Bay / Osa Peninsula experience for 6 unforgettable nights. This is, as many reviewers have noted, a very amazing place to visit and The Drake Bay Wilderness Resort staff crank up the enjoyment meter, so much that we dreaded our departure. You are provided with an assortment of very memorable day trips: from snorkeling, to jungle walks, to river and ocean adventures. You are well fed and housed in very comfortable cabins, with a lovely ocean view. We traveled around this amazing country for 4 weeks and this was the highlight of our trip! We are already planning our return. PURA VIDA!
