We continue to enjoy the gracious service; welcoming atmosphere; comfortable, clean, cool AC rooms; amazing fishing / spa /eco tour offerings and warm, friendly attitude of this special place. These folks are like family - this was our 10th visit. As usual (and despite an El Nino season) fishing both inshore and offshore exceeded expectations. Many sails along with a... More

I booked this vacation at Crocodile Bay thru Tara Harrell for our combined family of 11. Our ages ranged from 6 to 65, so finding a resort that would meet all of our needs could have been difficult. Tara handled all the details from start to finish flawlessly. The experience proved to be wonderful ! From the owner Beau to... More

Me and my family recently visited and stayed at Crocodile Bay for a week. My overall impression of the resort and area was positive. I do not enjoy large resorts or cruises because it is not as personal. The staff were great from the moment we stepped into the main office till moment we left it on our last day.... More

Some of you may have read my husbands review from our trip back in April 2015 that told of so many of the great attributes(including watching the world wake up sitting by the pool) of this location, so I'm going to keep this short and gracious! We arrived in Puerto Jimenez on December 28 and I have to say getting... More

My 15 year old son who is an avid fisherman and I(his Mom...not an avid angler) spent Christmas through New Years at Crocodile Bay. This was the most amazing vacation ever. My son found out about Crocodile Bay on one of the fishing shows. He said to me "You wouldn't want to go there. It's all about fishing." Let me... More

We have visited many many accommodations, resorts and hotels in high class, but the service, the quality, the crew and the professional way they organize all the trips (fishing and eco-tours) are the best we have ever experienced. Everybody does the best for all the guests, nothing is to much and everything is possible. The fishing boats are great, all... More

We went to Crocodile Bay Lodge over the Thanksgiving holiday 2015. We had the most amazing time. The staff was the best. Everyone, not just a few, but everyone was amazing. We felt so at home from the moment we got there until we left, even being Thanksgiving. The fishing was spectacular, the grounds were wonderful and the spa, ohhhhh... More

I just got back yesterday from Crocodile Bay and I cannot wait to get back to this fantastic spot! As soon as you arrive, you are greeted with incredibly kind and charismatic staff that are more than helpful in every way possible.
