This review is long overdue. My husband and I stayed here several years ago and still dream of going back. The location is remote and beautiful. The staff are warm and friendly. I would however advise to bring snacks and alcohol as there are no stores nearby! It is also advisable to bring cash as there are no ATMs.

We stayed in cabin nr. 1 for 4 nights and can agree with all the possitive comments. Great cabins with a fantastic view. Good staff who were really helpfull. We had dinner here 4 times and we loved the vegetarian food. The dogs are lovely but I do think there is a downside. We did not see any mammels, not... More

We stayed at Finca Maresia for 3 nites in December while in Drake Bay. Pablo, Susanna, and Emilio, as well as Miguel, were stupendous in being helpful, preparing food and serving, and just making us all feel at home. We sat around many times just chatting. Most of the clientele was from Europe, so for us Americans it was really... More

We found Finca Maresia to be a beautiful little paradise. Very nice and clean rooms, beautiful surroundings and very friendly and helpful staff. As we felt so at home we decided to stay an additional 2 nights following our overnight tour to Corcovado National Park.

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
