My friend and I spent (only) two nights at Finca Maresia and I wished we could have stayed longer. The place was full of magic and Juan, its host, most attentive and helpful. Moreover he is a great cook - so don't miss the great suppers he prepares for all guests each night. A must, not only for Juans's culinary... More

My wife,of many years, and I stayed here for 5 nights and we found it hard to leave. Both the food and accommodations were excellent. After spending most of the day in the dense woods and beach it was relaxing to finish the day in the higher open area of Finca. Juan,the owner, is a delightful host insuring that all... More

My wife, two children (13 and 10) and I had a wonderful visit to Drake Bay in August. Juan was a very attentive host and a great help with booking tours, sharing information and history of the area, and helping us to get to our activities within Drake Bay. We ate breakfast and most of our dinners at Finca Maresia,... More

Staying at Finca Maresia was the best experience we've ever had on a trip. Juan, one of the owners, was one of the more thoughtful people, and dedicated professionals already know on trips around the world. There were so many good things that we have chosen to list them: Hotel features and accommodations: Finca Maresia is located in the middle... More

My girlfriend and me had a wonderful time in the Finca Maresia in February 2015, where we spent 6 nights in this remote, peaceful and fantastic place! First of all, the team that the owner Miguel had for the time of our stay was wonderful and everyone was helpful and making us feel at home. The bungalows of the Finca... More

Our family was extremely honoured to have been invited to Finca Maresia for dinner recently. And what a dinner it was! Beautiful setting; superb amenities; and simply wonderful food & hospitality. Thank you Miguel!

I have nothing but good things to say about my experience at Finca Maresia. The owner Miguel was endlessly helpful, the food was great, the property was gorgeous. I stayed for one week at the end of January 2015, and it didn't feel at all long enough. I can't imagine staying anywhere else in Drake bay.

I cannot remember enjoying a hotel stay quite as much in a long long time. Whilst the important comforts were well provided - very comfortable beds, roomy shower rooms, spacious verandas with hammocks - the joy of this hotel was the degree to which the jungle was allowed to link in. The communal area had a deck from which to... More

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.
