Amazing place! A little Paradise with very friendly People who will do everything to make your stay comfortable. The view and nature surrounding the Finca is very beautifull. Very clean rooms for a great price. The basic rooms have a separate bathroom. But they are very nice and close to your room. Definatly book 'The Night Tour with the bug... More

This hotel is gorgeous both inside and out. It is a bit of a couple of kms from the main town of Drake Bay but the hotel was good about transporting us to and from. They do a dinner and a breakfast every day that were consistently delicious. The owner was extremely helpful in arranging tours and activities for us.... More

Our three days at Drake Bay were wonderful staying at Finca Marisia. Miguel is a fantastic host and the grounds are beautiful. The staff is very friendly and helpful. When planning our time in Drake we wanted to make the boat ride into a tour, and Miguel made this happen. He arranged for Gustavo Guiterrez, a very knowledgeable guide, to... More

The location, the service of Miguel and his team, the food, the proximity of birds and monkeys, and overall the price/quality all get the maximum 5 star rating from us. On top of that, the journey to get to Drake bay by speedboat through mangrove forest and wild sea was -although sometimes a little scary when at sea with much... More

Stay here! This is one of the best places I ever stayed at. My son cried when we left, that pretty much sums it all up. Great atmosphere, great concept to bring guests together by having big dinners, beautiful surroundings and plenty of interesting tours to choose from. We will remember the owner Juan and the guide Gustavio, who by... More

We found this place on TripAdvisor and we were not disappointed. We stayed for four nights and wished we could have stayed longer (it was fully booked). Our own cabin in the grounds was an excellent retreat, there is power 24 by 7 in Drake's Bay, so don't be confused by reports of generators being switched off at 9 o'clock... More

Drake Bay is not a place for people who want to stay in familiar surroundings in their favorite chain hotel. There are two ways to get there: by boat, or by 4-wheel drive vehicle, where fording rivers and streams is a necessity. We took the boat from Sierpe, and Juan (one of the owners), met us on the beach. He... More

Simply the most amazing place I have ever visited!!!!! Before we even began our journey to Drake Bay, Juan (part owner) had helped us out a great deal. Flying emails back and fourth. The bungalows will simply take your breath away. Gorgeous rooms, simple but lovely with amazing views of the grounds. And let's not forget the hammocks!! Juan is... More

What a place. Pictures don't do the place justice. It's paradise plain and simple. Beautiful rooms, stunning wildlife outside the room, great food, relaxed atmosphere. Juan (part owner) was everything from chef to bag carrier and so friendly. Whatever you want just ask Juan. We only had three days here but immediately regretted not staying longer. Only place to stay... More

My husband and I had an awesome time at Finca Maresia last Christmas! Juan is an amazing, well organized host. He really took the time to help us arrange our excursions while we were there. Our room was comfortable, clean and very private. The place was at full capacity and he still managed to keep all of the guests on... More
